Big Fish is the main attraction in Oyster Pond. Located within walking distance to Oyster Bay Resort, it offers a great bar, great ambiance, and excellent seafood. The staff is always busy and still finds the time to take care of each customer.

OMG what a great restaurant! I had the big rib dinner, everyone else had seafood. The appetizers were delish. The crab ravioli were heavenly. The service was top notch. The squeaking tree frogs were unique.

We shared the mussels in coconut curry sauce and a couple sushi rolls. It was more than enough for the two of us. The coconut curry mussels were fresh and delicious. Best mussels we ever had, try them when available

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

***Under New Management*** South Beach meets the Caribbean - Big Fish is a hip, modern and upscale casual dining experience. The design is like nothing you will find anywhere in St.Maarten. The menu is diverse - with a focus on seafood. Many other options are available for the non-seafood eater including steak, chicken, pasta and vegetarian options. A kids menu is also available. Great sharing snacks, a diverse wine list with a variety of options by the glass and full bar. The service staff are attentive and eager to please. The Outdoor Patio is magnificent with a waterfall fountain, sexy lighting and cool music. The inside features a large comfortable bar and open kitchen concept where you can enjoy the "show". Come join us at Big Fish - don't miss out.
