We had a nice dinner with friends here. Everything was well prepared and presented. The crab/shrimp cake appetizer was over the top. We will repeat.

We had the Sunday special and some great coffee. Eggs were prepared as ordered. Service was light and efficient. Perfect for a Sunday morning.

Had a great birthday brunch with a friend, hot delicious coffee and great food, quiet enough for good conversation. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The Bison Chorizo omelette is my favorite, but their eggs benny - done how you like them (my friend likes them rock hard) is a great choice as well. You just can't beat great home... More

We are great fish and seafood lovers and every city we visit this is our first choice of dine out no matter it is by the water or not. Except the tiny paking lot (shared) everything is fab. And reasonably priced indeed.

Amazing fresh fish and seafood in Calgary. Great selection of flavours. The fish tacos are incredible. I also love the mussels. It is a small restaurant with a cozy feel. The same servers have worked there for years. They are exceptional.

My hubby took me here for my bday and it was fantastic. Debated between here and Catch, then chose Big Fish for ease of location and parking! The food was great! We had oysters & crab cakes to start and Butter Chicken for the main. All were fantastic. Best and most original butter chicken I've ever had. Wine list was... More

Calgary has a hard time with seafood shops, but this place has been quite reliable for me. It's a small restaurant, and the patio is a bit noisy from the traffic, but it's all worth it. Had the fish and chips with a cup of chowder. Have previously tried other dishes, and am always impressed.

John Gilchrist recommended that a great place for a quiet meal was Open Range so I booked a reservation for an upcoming business dinner... but I found myself in North Calgary too early and having skipped lunch was ravenously hungry. So I popped in to Big Fish next door. As a rule I don't recommend for someone who's basically vegan... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Calgary is Big Fish and it has been for years. I treated myself to a delicious Niçoise Salad and a perfectly chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc one day last week for lunch. I had the pleasure of going again this week to share another lunch with my friend and business colleague, Yvonne, and she... More

Went here with my wife on a date night, she had never had oysters before! We had some Atlantic oysters which were fantastic. My dish was stellar as was hers. Our waitress was very kind and friendly. Being a Czech Canadian I was pleased to hear that they are having a Czech night soon! Highly recommend!
