2 of us went to visit on a Wednesday night. The decorations is cool with a drum set and guitar on stage but we were told no body will be performing this week. We shared a scallop as starter and a pork rib. Taste average.

The atmosphere, decoration and music are great. Sit outside by the lily pond and enjoy a couple of drinks, I'd say. Treat it as a pub, not a restaurant Food was really average, I ordered beef ribs and it was very chewy. Barbecue sauce was right out of the bag. Generally, I recommend to eat local dishes and fish in... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review Pierre. I am surprised that you found our beef ribs chewy as it is braised for several hours with cajun spices, then char-grilled with a good dose of BBQ sauce slathered on, at final cooking. It is one of our signature dishes. Our BBQ sauce is not right out of... More

We ate here twice in our week in Pacific Harbour and didn't have a bad dish. All interesting, all well cooked and the atmosphere and the location were brilliant.

The food was good. The atmosphere was chill and they played good music. We sat outside and there is a beautiful view of the lotus flowers in the little pound. They were out of about 1/3 of the items on the menu. But all things considered they were probably one of the better places to eat in Pacific Harbour. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review Brie. Yes, you are quite right about the items on our menu being 1/3 of what we would normally stock and serve.

We had a few lunches and one evening meal here. The outside area has really comfortable chairs and overlooks a beautiful lily pond. Service was excellent. The menu had a wide variety of choices and every meal we had was excellent. Prices were reasonable as well. This was my favourite place to eat in Pacific Harbour.

We stopped by here for lunch after getting caught in the rain and giving up on getting down to Suva. The ambiance of this place is very pleasant even in the day when it's quiet.

My girlfriend and I passed by this place and it looked great! Decor is nice and menu was appealing, plus the menu advertised live music that evening.

Dropped by for dinner at the Art Village and immediately got captivated by the amazing music and artifacts. They had great food choices and amazing service. The food was served quickly with hardly any wait and the view while you dine is gorgeous with hardly any noise or disturbance.

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"...
