Description: A little taste of New Orleans at Baka Blues Cafe`...a quaint restaurant positioned by the lily lake and next to the majestic Baka tree at Shop 9e, Arts Village, Pacific Harbour. While away an hour or two under our blue umbrellas, spot our local white heron and feel like you've been transported to a Louisiana bayou. Our barbeque and Cajun inspired menu features Southern favorites as well as mouth watering in-house creations, garden fresh salads and enticing appetizers.So for a little taste of New Orleans come listen to the Blues, nibble on baby back sizzlers, savour the flavors of smoked chicken served in a pineapple boat, be surprised by how well Cajun spices marry with South Pacific mud crabs, tuck into a Texas T-Bone, and sip on a refreshing margarita or mint julep...or two!!We'll help you keep your "mojo"...

This is a great alternative place to eat for people staying close to the village. Good music, food and reasonable priced. We stayed at the Pearl where the food was average and expensive.

Thank you for your review Akuila. It was lovely to meet your good self, Aaron and Sera. As a business owner, it is always good to hear what our customers have to say, after they have left our cafe`. You mention excellent service and atmosphere, which we try to uphold in every sense of the words. I smiled when I read, "they're THAT good"...it is your personal opinion that will be spoken about amongst your family and friends and hopefully we will benefit from it in visitor arrivals. We look forward to welcoming you back. Thank you. Stella *;)

This is a small resto in Pacific Harbour but a must try in the area. It's lovely to sit outside especially on weekend afternoons. Very relaxing with a cool breeze and peaceful atmosphere. Only the serving time should be improved as it takes a while to get your food. I think they should add more staff as I only see 2-3 waiters attending to roughly 20 tables inside and out. But the food is good and reasonably priced.

Thank you for your review HFO. Always good to read a review from someone who lives in Fiji. Yes, sitting outside is lovely especially on a beautiful day, with the trade winds blowing and it is very peaceful by the lily lake and under the shade of the Baka tree, hence our restaurant name, Baka Blues Cafe`. You mention that the serving time during the time of your visit was slow, which is very likely if we were surprised by a large group. We try to have staff on duty so that we have a ratio of 1 wait staff to 12 customers or 3-4 tables. It is very likely that we could have backed up orders in the kitchen, which happens from time to time. Hopefully, should you visit us again, you will not have this same experience. I am pleased that you liked our food and that it was reasonably priced...this is always good to know, as we pride ourselves in giving the best value for the dollars that our customers have spent. We look forward to seeing you again. Stella *;)

We can't wait to welcome you back to our "cool" joint, Mike C. I am extremely pleased that your review notes that we have great food and ice cold beer...can't get any better than that when you spend the afternoon and into the night, by our lily lake. We try our consistent best to please all of our discerning customers, hoping that they will take their experience away with them and can't wait to get back. That is our ultimate goal, that each customer will return and let friends know, and through word of mouth, the experience is repeated. Thank you for your review and your business. Stella *;)
