My wife and I stayed at the Pranee, bungalows, adjacent to Big Blue, for a week. During that time we ate at the restaurant a couple of times. The food was not bad and the prices were average. However, I feel as though we would have eaten at the restaurant much more often if the service wasn't so terrible. On... More

They serve a good pad Thai! Also the bbq at night is really nice with fresh fish or shrimp. Nothing fancy but nice place with good food.

Others have complained about the thai food, I can't comment on that. I did a diving certification with Big Blue and only had breakfast here. But I really liked the breakfast, I had a latte and Eggs Benedict and both were rock-solid. The eggs were perfectly cooked, hollandaise sauce a nice balance (I'd added a bit of salt, better to...

We walked up from the beach for a quick lunch and was very disappointed. The service was rude and our food had mold on it. We recommend picking the next restaurant on the beach. Keep walking.

I ate here a lot as I was part of Big Blue for 5 months. For a dive center, the price is fair. I liked the PIZZAS THE MOST. The fried rice too was a usual for me. I did not care much for the sandwiches but many people ate them. I would not go out of my way to... More

Really nice place to eat and relax after diving. They serve very good pizzas. Nice selection of beer, Thai beer as well as Belgian beers.

We travelled through Thailand over 2.5 weeks and ate all types of food. Big Blue's Thai food was the most disappointing of anywhere we went. It was double the price of most places one block off the beach and still much more than the Palm Resort 2 doors down on the beach. Our kids had been great about eating Thai... More

We were staying and diving at Big Blue but we tried plenty of other lovely restaurants. We ate plenty of beautiful food at Big Blue. The breakfasts ranged from large English cooked through to muesli, fruit, yoghurt and sometimes I'd eat fried rice. The bbq meals in the evening are especially good value. Range of fish, pork and chicken to... More

Before an AM dive, I ordered simple toast, eggs and tea. The good: they take early orders. Other locations on the beach didn't serve such early AM breakfasts and usually started around 7:30/8am for breakfast. And the bread was quite good. The not so good: it came out late 6:25 despite ordering around 610 am and I had to pack... More
