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"...

Three reasons for my visit – had never been here before; wanted to catch up with (and listen to) Waqa (the resident blues vocalist) whom I have known for many years; and to meet Stella, the owner a mutual...

Good food with generous serves, brilliant cocktails and the design and presentation is excellent. Don't miss the calamari whatever you do! Above all though it was the friendly fun waiting and bar staff who made our visits truly enjoyable. Well done guys!

A New Orleans styled restaurant with Cajun food, unusual in Fiji. Nice ambience, interesting decorating and we had heard good things. Unfortunately our fried ocean snapper was more like a fishburger with sauce and the baby pork ribs lean and tough. Great service. No live music that night so may be regular chef was off
