Super array of food & if you sit outside you are 'on top of' the rocks with the waves breaking directly below you. There are regular sightings of dolphins & even whales. If the weather is inclement they also have an enclosed area with a similar view

Stopped at Big Blue with a friend for a quick beer. Checked the menu and saw Stella Artois for R25 ea. Ordered two and when waiter brought the bill for R60. I told him to the menu and showed him the price - his response was that it was wrong. After having to threaten with the Consumer council and demanding to see the manager, we were told that the R50 was "ok"!

Relax Daan.

It was a honest mistake. As soon as Romencio told me I fixed it the error and sent you a new Bill. Really???

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.
