Good food, great little funky place on the water next to the marina. We like this place, and I am partial to it because I live a 5 minute walk away. We used to go more, but it has become so popular on summer evenings that it is difficult to get in, so reservations are a must now. Late summer... More

This is a quaint little restaurant hanging over the waters of Brentwood Bay. The setting is as good as it gets, nestled by the jetties of Brentwood it is definitely maritime. On a warm day, the outside tables would be perfect for a lazy late lunch, a large part of the deck is covered to provide respite from mid-summer sun... More

When you visit a place that advertises itself as a New Orleans restaurant in a place as bountiful as Vancouver Island (farmers market and fish/seafood lovers paradise) you might expect something a bit more like the real deal. This was just strange. Asked how they make their hard lemonade, the server responded nobody knew as they don't have a bar... More

The service, a little slow, was adequate. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food, while not considered real Cajun, was very good. The gumbo was not Cajun in that it was not a roux based or gumbo z'herbes style. The atmosphere was great with the outside tables literally over the water. It is hard to find, but once... More

The view and the service were great but the food was disappointing. The jambalaya was boring. The crab cakes were dry and not favourable. I guess I have been spoilt by actual New Orlean's cooking but my partner has never been and just through his own experiences was disappointed.

With a view of the water and an outside sitting area, it would seem that this little restaurant would be very busy, but on a July 2014 afternoon, there were only the two of us and another couple having lunch. The food was really pretty good as the soup of the day was more than filling for an easy lunch... More

Out daytripping Victoria and the area? You've got to visit Blue's Bayou Café! Situated in Brentwood Bay at the bottom of Marchant Road on the marina; you can eat in or out on the patio with a beautiful view of the water. We were walking around the area and were in desperate need of the amenities with this being the... More

Can't say enough about this place. Food was excellent. Location is nice - literally on the water. I had the jambalaya and it was delicious. Also had the crab cakes which were great and fresh. My brother had the catch of the day and loved it as well. Also, very reasonably priced and very friendly servers.

Atmosphere on a summer day can't be beat! Food is good enough, when you are there, you don't even care!
