It was very nice the outside was beautiful it was nicely decorated. They had the best ice cream and the lobster and shrimp ravioli was good. I personally love oysters we got white wine sauce it was good. If you come to St. Martin/st. Marten you have to try this restaurant.

We had high expectations because of all of the positive reviews but were very disappointed in our food. The fish was rubbery. The atmosphere was good, the waitress was new and clueless, but tried her best. We ordered tempura salmon, only to discover that it wasn't actually cooked - it was all raw.

We called at 645pm and they were able to seat a group of 10 people by 7pm last friday. Awesome food, great drinks! It was very busy and we were squeezed in and were grateful :)

if you like style over substance this is your place. if you've ever had a good piece of fish you will be disappointed. if you're from the mid west and you like frozen fish- bon appetite!

We had an excellent dinner on our last visit. Both enjoyed the seafood dinners we chose and the drinks were made perfect. Service and staff were good. Nice ambiance also.

Setting, ambiance and service was great. Plenty of attractive menu choices. All of our seafood was on the overcooked side. For the price, we felt Busbys and Canoa were two much better dinner options and all within a stone's throw.

***Under New Management*** South Beach meets the Caribbean - Big Fish is a hip, modern and upscale casual dining experience. The design is like nothing you will find anywhere in St.Maarten. The menu is diverse - with a focus on seafood. Many other options are available for the non-seafood eater including steak, chicken, pasta and vegetarian options. A kids menu is also available. Great sharing snacks, a diverse wine list with a variety of options by the glass and full bar. The service staff are attentive and eager to please. The Outdoor Patio is magnificent with a waterfall fountain, sexy lighting and cool music. The inside features a large comfortable bar and open kitchen concept where you can enjoy the "show". Come join us at Big Fish - don't miss out.
