Due to the season of the year, we were serenaded by tree frogs while we dined on fresh, well prepared fish and fresh vegetables.

Ate here once when staying at the Oyster Bay Beach Resort. Atmosphere was very nice, sitting outside, and drinks were very good. My appetizer was tasty (bang bang shrimp) but my scallop meal was just okay. Everyone else in the party had a similar sentiment about their entrees, and we all got a variety of things, from pasta to seafood,... More

The food and wine was excellent and the waiting staff was amazing! We got to eat outside on the patio, which had an comforting yet modern atmosphere. The whole experience was great!

The Big Fish is a beautiful restaurant but we found their food to be just Ok. Out of fairness, we've been eating at French restaurants in Grande Case so it's hard to compete with those.

One of the culinary highlights of an island full of great restaurants. We dined there on our 10th anniversary. They spontaneously gifted us with a wonderful shared dessert after some of the best seafood we've ever eaten. Highly recommended.

HIGHLY recommend. This place was absolutely fabulous. Sushi was all incredible, as was the lobster bisque and entrees. The best part was the Creme Brûlée. Absolutely superb. The outdoor seating was also very relaxing and wonderful.

We were at the Westin property and my family of 5 ventured here on a quick 5 min taxi ride. We were met with excellent service and attention at the door that ended with our cab forcing us to leave! The wine list offered great choices and we enjoyed the appetizers of bisque and fresh muscles. The fresh fish entrees... More

We were supposed to have sushi, but the sushi chef was off that night (Saturday) so we had the grilled fish instead and it was great! All of us had different sauces and the chimichurri sauce was the star. Tree frogs provide a cacophony of sound during dinner!
