As appetizer, I asked a Tartar beef which it's not traditional cold raw meat with a raw egg in the center; this was an almost raw grinded meat with an almost raw egg (a sort of Benedictine), but hidden anchovies was the top special flavor. Just extraordinary.

As main course, I got lobster ravioli.It's minimalist but delicious, the oyster mushrooms were very tasty, and the broth was strong and thick.

We'd been in St. Lucia for a week before trying Big Chef, which was right by where we stayed in Cap Estate. First, our server was hands down the friendliest service professional we encountered on our tour of probably a dozen restaurants in three cities on the island. I can't say enough about how lovely both the service and ambience were. We were told that we'd pay above average here, but in the end, that was irrelevant. It's worth every penny. We had the bruschetta both nights, as it was divine. I had the corn and clam chowder and wish that I could get anything like it back home-- it was SO good. The steaks are just perfect in every way-- juicy, grilled and seasoned to perfection. I had the filet mignon both times. It blew my socks off and we immediately decided to re-book for the following night so we could do it all again.

This is one of the best restaurants in Saint Lucia with flavorful meat cuts, but very expensive. I had a nice dining experience with my wife, however the service is pretty inconsistent depending on the server who is waiting your table. If the front of the house team was stepping up their game in terms of sequences of service, this would be a 5-star rating.

Hi Victor, many thanks for your review, we truly appreciate your candour. As it relates to the cost, we recognise that our prices are above average, but this is because we strive to offer the best quality cuisine, which means that most items have to be imported. As for the service, we will certainly take your comments on board and identify any gaps. Thanks again.

Really friendly place - if you want some variety from the hotel and can't be bothered to cook, this is a great place to visit. Big tasty steaks, good service, good wines, friendly staff - a little pricey, but still good.
