The fish was good, the beer was cold and we were able to sit back and relax without being rushed. There might be fancier places, but we enjoyed our meal and the prices are reasonable. A good option while on Corn Island.

Clean and okay for the price . The room we stayed was 1 when we arrived it had a musty smell but with air conditioner and fan it improved. The rooms are cleaned and beds changed each day. The people who run the place are friendly. In walking distance to the bakery and Maris .

I recently spent Christmas holidays on Big Corn Island with my girlfriend and another couple. Our first morning on the Big Corn we went out to explore the coastline and came across the Big Fish Cafe. We stopped in for breakfast and it was delicious! The service was phenomenal and the guy working the bar was an absolute gem to... More

Everyone working here is wonderfully friendly and professional. The prices are better than next door, the food is great! I prefer to sit on the beach deck rather than in the restaurant or bar.

The food at Big Fish cafe is delicious! We ate most of our meals here, as we also stayed in their guesthouse, but there were many people eating here that were staying elsewhere. The staff is very friendly and courteous and I'd highly recommend them.

Pansie and the rest of the team went out of their way to ensure we had a great meal. The food was great with perfectly cooked kingfish, lobster, prawns and conch. Might not look quite as nice as their neighbours at the seaside grill, but the food is probably better.

Walked around a little in the morning looking for breakfast, and this place had a nice menu to choose from. We had a nice breakfast. Service was good and polite.

Seaside grill is right next door so I think a lot of people miss out on this little gem, but definitely check out their food, its delicious! They also serve breakfast, which many restaurants do not on the island!

Had dinner here, ordered lobster with local flavours, was brilliant. The setting is a bit so so and just next to sea side, which has many more seats outdoor(but was there for lunch so wanted to try his place as well). Five stars for portions and flavours but the setting is a bit mixed... Priced as most places, 10-15 used... More
