It is a reference to the English fairy tale 'Little Red Riding Hood'. In the context of the story, the little girl (Little Red Riding Hood) is becoming suspicious that the person in front of her is not her grandmother. The person is, in fact, a wolf in disguise. So Red Riding Hood begins asking some questions, one of which is: "My, what big eyes, you have Grandmother." This is referring to the large eyes of a wolf. The wolf responds, "All the better to see you with, my dear." So the phrase could be used as a justification for an existing trait ('My, you have a lot of surveillance cameras in this store.' 'All the better to see you with.'). It also carries playful/joking tones if you use it.

Somebody said that this phrase is from the book Little Red Riding Hood. Jack gave college paper org review. Users can get to know more about it by browsing the topic.
