 Amazing!!!
This place is by far the best service and food we had while we were in Cancun for a week! I believe we went here 3x and each time was better than the last! Rafael is an amazing manager and sever/bartender/buss boy!! Food is delicious with great prices! I highly recommend Rafaels made up drink, consists of mango, pina,apple and strawberry!! I asked for a fruity drink and he made the best made up house drink I’ve ever had created by the manager! We also got a chance to see the crocodiles who visit Big Fish everyday! Such an amazing experience right on the water! Across from Big Fish is Santiago with tour advisor! The most honest tour advisor your going to get with fair prices and great advice and truly wants you to have a good time no matter what. Santi does not force you into any presentation for a time share, he did ask but knew we weren’t interested, and didn’t push us at all! Many people in Cancun are very pushy to have you buy things (especially if your American) but Santi never pressured us into anything, and gave us the best prices from everyone we interacted with!!!! We truly made a real friend with Santi by the end of our week stay! He’s an amazing person who isn’t going to trick you into anything, very honest and isn’t going to overcharged like many people here are. You won’t be conned you will be satisfied!!!Enjoy big fish and Santi!! You can actually request him while eating your food and he will come talk to you!!!!

We went to enjoy some fresh fish. We ordered the big seafood platter for 2, it was so good. It consisted octopus, squid, red snapper, and shrimp but we substituted shrimp for crab. The waiter was so friendly and allowed us to enjoy our food. I’d go there again for the fresh food and restaurants nice atmosphere.

We stopped here to look at the menu n our last night. Asked how big their steaks were and the just brought one out to show us. This place has YUMMY food and good choices for those that aren't in the mood for seafood even though the name is Big Fish.We would eat here again!!

 Good food, nice location
We ended up at Big Fish while taking a walk away from our hotel. It had started to rain and we walked in to eat and get shelter.My husband and I both ordered the catch of the day and it tasted great! Well seasoned with garlic and herbs. We really enjoyed our meal.As the rain kept going for many hours after our meal arrived, we enjoyed drinks which were quite good - strong and tasty. Maybe a little sweet for my liking but we enjoyed them nonetheless!

 Outstanding meal on the water
We were looking for a place that had crab and got a lot more than we expected. Margaritas were wonderful, Shrimp Caviche was tasty, and then it was stuffed crab time. Out of this world! We had the shrimp platter too and honestly had to think hard on a better meal we have EVER had in all of our travels. To top it off we were visited by Co Co the crocodile. The seating area is right on the water, and he came up to the wall and let us take photos. I had a go pro on a stick and put it by his face and he almost snapped it off! Great video to say the least. Our waiter was simply awesome (Andre I think), from Belize. I would recommend this place if you are looking for an authentic, and memorable Cancun experience. The only thing I can complain about is that we found this place on our last night in town. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Try the salmon, it is the best I have had in Cancun, even better than the higher end restaurants. Service is 10 out of 10, they even entertain you by feeding Andrea the fish And of course being on the lagoon it has great sunsets.

We say the Big Fish on the bus ride and deci see e to have lunch there and we were not disappointed. We had the fried fish with coconut rice and it was very fullfiling our waiter Eduardo was very courteous and ensure we had everything we needed. The resturant is close to the hotels, scenery was not as modern but the ruins I see as historic art with a sea side feel bringing the name of the restaurant to life. A must try in Cancun.

 our evening was wonderful
We found the Big Fish two years ago and were so happy to see that they were still open. I maintain a vegan diet and while there was nothing 'vegan' on the menu the chef prepared a wonder dinner for me. My family shared the shrimp dinner for 4 cooked 4 different ways and were thoroughly pleased. While the wine selection was not extensive we found one to our liking. This restaurant is one we have put on our 'places to eat in Cancun'.

This is a neat little joint right on the hotel strip with a veranda on the lagoon! Prices are very reasonable, for sure for seafood and chicken, much less than you'd pay for the same thing in Canada. Food is delicious! Alligators will also surface to be fed! All in all a great little joint for seafood!

OMG, I had been looking for some great fresh fish since me and my family arrived in Cancun. At my resort, they seemed to be out at every restaurant or had some frozen breaded fish that wasn't good. I ordered the whole red snapper dinner and it was fried to perfection. The fish hung off the plate due to its size. The dinner was $30 USD but well worth it. if you looking for great fish try this place.The waiter was also friendly and helpful.

Everything came together in a beautiful way and we found Big Fish. We were looking for a sunset view and on the bus line. We walked in and there was a table available with a perfect view of the sunset view.We ordered a large whole grouper with coconut rice, which we split. I wish I'd taken a pic of the dish because the presentation was so nicely finished. We ordered the shrimp bisque which was a little spicy for me but my husband gladly finished it off. Our servers name was Eduardo and his reccomendations were helpful. I will come back next time I'm in Cancun, of course around sunset.

 Perfect Setting AMAZING Sunset View!
Better than the food was the view. The setup of this restaurant astonishing! Outside seating with a tropical breeze even in 100 degree weather. There is a large alligator that hangs out and is feed by the staff so that attraction is an even bigger bonus! The mango margarita was perfect on a summers night. Not to neglect the food because it was good…. its was that the setting was better!

 Good Seafood, Friendly Service
This restaurant replaced "Splash" which was a reasonably priced good quality eatery. I was sorry to see "Splash" go, but this is a worthy successor. We were there on a Monday night, and there was only one other party there which is concerning -- hate to see this place go under too. The proprietor "Alan" waited on us attentively and was very friendly. I thought the food quality was above average and reasonably priced. The blackened tuna steak was excellent and my wife reported that the coconut encrusted shrimp was too. I also had an appetizer of fried calamari which avoided the mistake of being tough and stringy. There is also a full bar and we enjoyed a glass of chardonnay, but the wine choices were limited. The only criticism I have is the somewhat spartan nature of the interior; it's clean, but the decor is less than inspired. I would lie to see this place remain in business and I urge you to give Alan a try--he deserves it!

We stopped by Big Fish on our way back to our hotel from Downtown . Nice open air right on the water. The service was excellent- very friendly staff. We had drinks and fried shrimp. The shrimp was good and the coconut rice it came with was outstanding. There is an alligator that swims by as you eat.

Whilst waiting for our jungle trip via your own boat we decided to have lunch first and what a lovely fresh fish lunch it was. The waiter - Josh was attentive and informative and even showed us Coco the Aligator who is a local celebrity. A great place for a lite lunch or a hearty dinner, the menu is appealing and adventurous and is a must try place to eat.

 Perfect Setting AMAZING Sunset View!
Better than the food was the view. The setup of this restaurant astonishing! Outside seating with a tropical breeze even in 100 degree weather. There is a large alligator that hangs out and is feed by the staff so that attraction is an even bigger bonus! The mango margarita was perfect on a summers night. Not to neglect the food because it was good…. its was that the setting was better!

 Good food
We were the only diners there. The gentleman that waited on us also cooked the food as the chef was ill. I have to say he did an amazing job! Decent food and drink.

 Good Seafood, Friendly Service
This restaurant replaced "Splash" which was a reasonably priced good quality eatery. I was sorry to see "Splash" go, but this is a worthy successor. We were there on a Monday night, and there was only one other party there which is concerning -- hate to see this place go under too. The proprietor "Alan" waited on us attentively and was very friendly. I thought the food quality was above average and reasonably priced. The blackened tuna steak was excellent and my wife reported that the coconut encrusted shrimp was too. I also had an appetizer of fried calamari which avoided the mistake of being tough and stringy. There is also a full bar and we enjoyed a glass of chardonnay, but the wine choices were limited. The only criticism I have is the somewhat spartan nature of the interior; it's clean, but the decor is less than inspired. I would lie to see this place remain in business and I urge you to give Alan a try--he deserves it!

We were excited to try this restaurant which was close to our hotel. Service was not good and took forever to receive our dinners. The food once received was good but had limited staff working on the night we were there.

 Mixed results for three diners
Coconut lime pasta with shrimp: pasta was too sweet, a lot of sugar for some reason. The sauteed shrimp atop the pasta were savory and tasted fine. The coconut breaded shrimp had too thick breading and the coconut was too sweet.The filet of fish was tasty and recommended.

 Great Atmosphere
I would honestly go back to this restaurant because I love the ambience. However, the food from my first visit did not taste great. I ordered a whole fish but it was not fully scaled and the bottom half was burnt. Due to the ambience and the personable staff I would visit again. This time I would try something else.

 Average food, comoletely empty
As soon as we arrived to the restaurant we noticed it was completely empty: only one waiter & us. We had our doubts about staying but the menu looked delicious. I checked tripadvisor & it had some excellent opinions, although they happen to be written by users with only THAT one opinion (most likely restaurant workers). We had the tuna tartara as entree (good), the stuffed fish (They used surimi instead of squid) and the chipotle shrimp (good but small portion). Overall it wasn't bad, but consider the average cost for a plate (15 USD) and there wasn't a highlight.

 Bad Experience due to the waiter
We'd dropped in there for a couple of drinks one lunchtime, and the menu looked good so we went back a different night to eat. There only was us and another table, but still took a while for food to come.Food was nice, so I don't have any complaints, but the waiter turned nasty. I'd told him just bring back 300 pesos change, thereby leaving just over 100 tip (about £5). He came back with 200 notes saying he had no change, but then quickly changed his mind when I said well we can't leave any tip then. But the damage was done - the 'no change' thing was just a ruse to try and get us to leave a 200 note instead. So we left without leaving a tip. He came running after us shouting "f**k you" and "Policia!" "Policia!" - so I think he was going to go down the route of claiming we hadn't paid at all had any police been around.All round a very unpleasant experience for us, which is a shame because the location is very pleasant and the food was nice.I guess the moral of the story is that if you're going there, make sure you have the amount you want to leave as a tip separate from what you pay with. That way you don't get into a situation of either leaving too much or none at all.

 poor quality food
I had though that this location would have decent seafood but was sadly wrong. The lobster that i purchased was flavorless and a bit tough. The shrimp that my wife purchased looked to be from the grocery store rather than fresh

We went there 22 May for lunch, because of all the good reviews and pictures of this place. We had crab cakes, the Surf & Turf for two, and a couple of Coronas; total bill was USD 58. The crab cakes were probably the worst ones we've ever had. It was plane crabmeat without any fillers inside kind of like a deep fried chicken batter; flavorless and crunchy on the outside. The Surf & Turf was a combination of shrimp, chicken, fish, and beef; very flavorful and filling. The service was good with some modern and Mexican music playing.Ambience was that of a low level restaurant, with views of the lagoon restricted by a partially torn down structure on the water side, and a bunch of jet skies by the pier that were being refueled for lagoon excursions. During the refueling some the fuel made it into the water, which did not make for a better feel.The management pictures are very deceiving, as they do not show everything. We would only recommend this place to people who are passing by, and really need something to eat.

 It was not a plesant experience
We entered the restaurant we were seated quickly, the waiter said we were the first customers of the day (it was dinner time). We order drinks, strawberry/ mango margarita's the fruits in the drink tasted as if they were old. We then ordered our appetizers ( lobster bites) he bring the plates out they were dirty and chipped. At that point we were getting ready to leave but we felt bad since we were the only customers of the day, we stayed and ordered our entree's. I ordered steak mashed potatoes vegetables,I asked for my steak to be well done, when I received it the steak was very pink and had a lot of fat on it. my friend ordered Rasta Pasta (Caribbean Pasta) this was not Rasta pasta at all it look like they dumped chef boyardee in a bowl and heated it up. my other friend ordered shrimp Alfredo, it came back like cream soup it was very watery. Needless to say we see why they don't get much customers. The service from the waiter was very good though.

 Only two other tables occupied and service was way too long.
While on our way out in Cancun we decided to try Big Fish. Looked open and fresh. However, the service was so long, I ended up paying for the two drinks and left. My order by the way was three appetizers only, making it an easy task. After 20 minutes, no one came to tell us that the kitchen was short a chef! I asked why they did not tell us about the delay and all I got was a shoulder shrug. Not impressed. If the waiter would have apologized for the poor service, I probably would have never wrote this review.

 Salty, not fresh, horrible service
We went there for dinner. We were the only ones there, but our waiter was nowhere to be found half the time. When he would come, he would promise to bring requested items that never showed up. The salsa tasted like tomato sauce from a school lunch. The steak was cold. The only marginally good thing was the red snapper which the waiter said was fresh. Vacations are too short to have to suffer through a restaurant this bad. My tip: stay away.

Waiter was lovely, but the standard of food was terrible. Waited an hour for the food, the chef mixed up our orders. It was painful.

The food was good but the service wa horrible. They rip off tourists. They would tell you the meal is 250 Peso, but when they bring the bill, they charge you 350 Peso. And their receipts are hand written. Their menus don't have prices on them, so they can easily cook up a price. Very fishy restaurant and not because they serve fish.
