We have been here before but we're now told by many local people that the quality of food has deteriorated and I think that is fair to say. However it is still a lovely place, nice service, nice setting and decent food. Not too expensive but they have done much better.

Since our last visit a couple of years were gone, so we wanted to see if the quality is still great. Our meat dishes were done to perfection (as ordered), the waiters were alert and friendly. So we enjoyed a very nice evening at this restaurant. We definitely will return. Make sure, that you have made a reservation. Sometimes there... More

We went for lunch on the second to last day of our holiday and wished we'd gone sooner. The prawn and chicken curry, whilst not something I would have put together, worked a treat!!! Can't wait to go back!!!

The food was outstanding, the fillet was super soft and juicy. The atmosphere was classy and old worldly, a bit dark and serious for my taste, but the food and wine was good.

We went for lunch and really enjoyed it. Adkins was our waiter and was a total professional. Interestingly the wines were so well priced and excellent as well. Beautiful environment.

We had some kudu steaks and served with polenta and some delicate veggies it was a superb meal. It is a good idea to book in advance as the... More

I have eaten at the Big Easy several times over the past 5 years and sadly it seems that the food quality is going down. The good news are that it nevertheless remains of acceptably high level but having been spoiled previously I was now a bit disappointed by some dishes like the Norvegian salmon which was tasteless and slightly...

Had two working lunches here as it was only 1 min from my guesthouse, Twice Central. Great atmosphere. Good food, although my fish was slightly dry on one occasion. Big selection of wines. Our waiter was excellent. Will come again.
