The view of this restaurant is spectacular. That is the only positive to this place. The restaurant feels grimy. The fish is not fresh. Quality is lacking. The waitress really tried hard to give good service but she lacked training and knowledge. Spare your money...More

I guess you cannot have it all - beautiful view or good food....We chose the view. You just can't get better than Big Blu's location on the edge of the sea. Probably the best place for sundowners in Mossel Bay. Food was basic and average....More
