Good news for seafood & salad lovers -- Big Willy's is for more than steak lovers! While the steaks are tasty, we opted for the smoked marlin and foie gras salads as starters -- fantastic and huge -- could have settled for a salad and a side order, and been satisfied. Then we tried the seafood brochettes and fresh dorade... More

Went in for a snack lunch, food was okay but the general ambiance was disappointing. I think you can often judge the standard of a place by its toilets and in this case they were terrible.

Draft beer in chilled mugs on a hot summer night. Saturday night is better than the rest. Atmosphere varies depending on the night you pick.

We have been there with four adults and one baby. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff is very friendly and the food excellent. I really can recommend this restaurant.

I don't know what was worse: the service or the food? Both! Drinks have not been served as ordered; bread and parfait was served 30 seconds before the main dish; Cannelloni was terrible; beerglass had mold inside; So don't expect complain management! They haven't even deducted the not drunken beer from the bill. Never had such a terrible experience!
