Friendly attentive and humorous service. Great food but the 400 EC bill for 2 felt like a lot for what it was

We return to the Big Chef, time and time again. Our meals are always excellent and the steaks cooked as requested.The house wine wasgood. The waiter was very personable and helpful. There is no restaurant parking but it is Rodney Bay and you will find parking somewhere.

We asked someone local hanging at our hotel for a good steak house and we did not regret! Yes it was pricey, but we were on vacation so why not, but boy was it worth it. The atmosphere was lovely and just what one imagine a steak house to look like - a little rustic, yet clean and cozy. The... More

We ate at many good restaurants on St. Lucia, but this was my favorite. They had a good selection of wines and entrees and the service was excellent. It is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

We took a break from seafood for the evening and had steaks and we were not disappointed. They were cooked perfectly and great service to boot. Would go again.

It was good, but it is just a steakhouse. It was not my idea of tropical food. I go out for steaks in the States for work a lot, so I was not too impressed.

Thank LWM_Travel
Management response:

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review. Ultimately Big Chef Steakhouse is, as you say, a steakhouse, so naturally our focus is on steak! However, whilst we are known for our steaks, we also offer a wide variety of freshly caught fish and seafood, so it's surprising that you didn't feel that there were any tropical options on... More

Was disappointed with our trip. We got a couple of steak meals and meals for our children and with drinks it came to nearly $200. I could not believe it - for this price I was expecting lot more. Maybe we got there on a bad day?

Management response:

Hi Darren, thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. From your comments it's a little hard to know why you felt you did not get value for money - were you disappointed with the service, or the food, or was it just the cost of the meal? Please keep in mind that most of the food... More

Tasty, great service and large portions. Lots of steak, but being on a tropical island vacation I chose fish.

Thank gmbarker2017

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review. We are mainly known for our steak, which is imported, but you definitely can't go wrong with our fresh, locally-caught fish and seafood! Thanks again, and we hope to see you again next time. More
