Big blue backyard seasonal menu

Paul, big blue backyard's in house Chef and owner, has designed this menu for sharing, using the freshest ingredients available from local producers.

The dish you choose is cooked specifically for you and served to your hideaway, because it’s your private dining experience! 

Every dinner begins with a generous canape for you to enjoy as your table is set for dinner.

In addition to this seasonal menu, each day Paul prepares the “Chefs dinner” which is the dinner of the day or the "plate de jour".

The Chefs dinner is included in all our intimate and indulgent packages.


Every meal begins with freshly prepared canapés inspired by what’s growing now.

“Feel like a rock star, relax in style”

"We had dinners at hatted restaurants which were nowhere near as wonderul as the dining at BBB. Drinks on the patio -with nibbles that would have sated the most jaded palate -as the sun went down were just a treat." Trip Advisor April 2013
