“This classy, indoor, air-conditioned restaurant is the most reliable bet for a really good dinner in Rodney Bay Village. The steaks, though not cheap, are outstandingly tender, and the sweet potato fries are delicious. Leave room for the rich puddings, such as the cranberry vanilla crème brûlée, which are also memorable. Chef Rosie Joinville is exceptionally welcoming, finding time to chat to tourists as well as her many regulars. You could start the evening next door at sister establishment Tapas On The Bay, a civilised and rather elegant tapas bar serving Caribbean and Spanish dishes.”

Consistently one of, if not the best, steak houses in the Caribbean. Never had a bad meal there in the 10+ years I've... been going. A trip to St. Lucia is not complete without a visit to the Big Chef Steak Houseread more

  • positive review  Stopped in here last night and WOW, great food, great drinks and atmosphere. Owner was very pleasant to talk to as were all the employees we interacted with. Piano player was really good, one of our group even sang a song with him. Only suggestion would be to have an area to sit, have another drink to stay a while to continue enjoying the music after dining. 👍

    positive review  Steak was great, the edges were amazing, however the flavor did not make its was into the the 22 OZ Ribeye.....tough at the core. extremely over priced, unsure if that's a St Lucian thing in the tourist trap spots. The place was extremely loud, but the server was attentive, took over an hour after appetizers was finished for the food to arrive. desserts were on point, all things considering a 7/10 experience.
