Nice good, pleasant atmosphere.
Unfortunately the Open Table in-line booking didn’t reach the restaurant, but the staff did well to find a nice table for us on a busy Valentines Day.

Joint best steakhouse I know worldwide - matches Fiesta del Asado in Birminghm (UK) which I think is better than Gaucho

The service was very good. But when it comes to the food, we were a bit disappointed. I ordered a filet to be cooked medium rare and it came back medium to medium/well, which ruined my meal. My wife had the crab cakes and a ceasar salad, which were both average.

Amazing food and excellent service!
I took my boyfriend to BigChef for his birthday on 25/12/19. The ambiance on entrance was spectacular, honestly. The restaurant is a cozy and intimate, with enough allowance for family dining

Horrible experience!! Don’t usually leave bad reviews. But this is “note worthy”. Horrible service, food was good. Service was not. We saw a Birthday party when we arrived and wanted to treat her. We were thanked, and then discarded. Been to many islands. Will not return to this establishment, and will not recommend to our friends

This was an unexpected fantastic experience! We come to St. Lucia every year for our timeshare and had heard good things about Big Chef. It surpassed our expectations by being great...even by any big city standards. Can't say enough about the service and food

Big Chef was awesome. We are a big steakhouse family
Back home in NY and this one is certainly up there with the best. The Filet and porterhouse was phenomenal. Great appetizers, espresso martinis and our waitress Audra was the best!!! We love it so much we are going back in 2 days, highlight of our trip so far.

We were very pleased with our meal at Big Chef. We both had the filet tenderloin wrapped in bacon. Delicious! The side of garlic mashed was also very good, as well as the asparagus. They have a nice wine list, and although they show a cocktail list online, the server said they did not have one at this time. The server was very attentive, almost a little too much so. We didn’t want to be rushed. We were disappointed that the bar when you walk in did not have bar stools so we could not sit there for a drink. So far this was our best email on the island.

Would have like to know upfront that the big chef steakhouse was using another venue during their renovations...

A first class steakhouse. The dry aged ribeye coyboy was terrific, as were the salad and sides. The ambiance was quiet and very tasteful. Service was impeccable.

We come to Big Chef every year, kind of a ritual.
Food and service are always great and we love to bring new friends to experience it.
Steaks are always cooked to perfection.
We have been coming for the last 11 years and hope to do so for many more.

Great family dinner at the Big Chef. We were a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids). No kids menu but two kids shared a lovely steak, with chips and gravy that were a big hit. Lovely cocktails and attentive staff.

WOW! Our group of 6 was so impressed by the outstanding service we were given at Big Chef Steakhouse! We indicated on our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. When we arrived there were three balloons on our table! So festive! Then, after eating a wonderful dinner, our birthday celebrant was serenaded by a live music version of "Happy Birthday"! Then, the owner of the restaurant visited our table, and chatted amicably with our table. She then gave our birthday celebrant a gift bag that contained a hand painted wine glass. Never, in all of the years of dining out have ANY of us received such a lovely acknowledgement of a birthday. We highly recommend the Big Chef Steakhouse for any day, but especially for special occasions.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The baby back ribs was amazing and the home salad was refreshing. The restaurant was just like the photo. What you see it what you get. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
