We had seafood for lunch and really enjoyed it. The calamari wasn’t stringy and that’s a plus in my book. The view is unbelievable. Had nice cocktails for a starter.

It is a shame that Big Blu only relies on their setting on the rocks to try and make up for a dirty restaurant, extremely slow service and cremated hamburger patties. We had to ask (a very unfriendly and unwilling) waitress to please clean a garbage bin which was overflowing, perhaps since the previous evening - we were in for lunch. The service was very slow, and what we thought would be a quick hamburger lunch, became a very long wait for a overcooked meal. And it was a quiet afternoon, the place was nearly empty. What they do on a busy day, I really would not even want to think about. We won't be back.

a relaxing atmosphere with the best Calamari ever. Affordable and service is very good. Been to this restaurant on numerous occasions - always the same. Ideal family restaurant.

We were 3 people dining together and the fish for sure are cooked from frozen and has been lying in the fridge for long because it tasted like fridge. This was a disgusting meal and i cannot believe you get this standard of fish at a seafood restaurant right on the ocean! Do not eat there! All you can expect is disappointment. The waiter could also at least have asked if we enjoyed our meal or not. This restaurant has gone backwards.
