Does anyone know where the restaurant featured in "The Big Blue" is?

I just saw the movie the other day, for the first time actually:eek:

It is simply the best. And I too wondered where these spots are. I would like to know where that cliffside with the white building/castle is, when they competed from the boat.

Well good luck on finding it.

Hi Jeff and Seal,

I am not quite sure if that restaurant still exist, however if you give me some time, I can try if I find the location some of my literature about The Big Blue.
By the way, most of the locations (and most of the Story!) is found and written by Luc Besson. Enzo Maiorca and Jacques Mayol never grew up together in Greece, for example. True, for a change, is the fact that Jacques Mayol did some scietific diving in Peru.

When I am not mistaken, the "castle" you refer to is the monastry of Amorgos. In one of the original movie scenario's, Jacques and Johanna would visit the monastry and would hear a bit about its past.

If you have more questions about The Big Blue, you could send them to [email protected]. With that I would avoid any 'spoilers' and I can use them to prepare a "FAQ" about the Big Blue, on my site wich will come online around the Cyprus competition.

Kind Regards,
