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.

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"...

My wife and I visited this restaurant with local residents Richard and Marianne. We had an excellent meal which was reasonably priced. Would visit this restaurant again in a heartbeat.

We came here for lunch and had the crunchy chicken and popcorn prawns. The food was great and the staff couldn't do enough for you. We sat outside overlooking the lilies on the lake.

I crawled in and felt like home. Great music playing in the day, Live music at night(blues of course) comfort old like ribs and Mac n'cheese. If homesick or for some reason ya need a small momentary dose of American. I highly recommend stopping in.

We spent an evening here listening to local musicians and visiting with friends. Good food, wasnt the same as the US, but very good for the locale. Wait staff was very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was upbeat and completely nonthreatening.

The food was delicious, but the portions were too big. I could have easily shared my meal with another person.

Hello Manda, thank you for your review and titling your post "Great Food - Huge Portions". That was interesting to me that you noted this, as we do practice portion control...just enough for one person, based on research that we have carried out in-house. I am pleased that you found our food delicious. Thank you for your patronage. Stella *;) More

We ate dinner here two nights in a row. The food was very good, the setting was nice, and there is live blues music. The place has a New Orleans feel to it. Menu has a good variety of salads, main dishes, fish, etc. Our only disappointment was the house wine was awful.

That was a great fail on our part to serve you "awful" house wine, Trvelor. it would have been helpful if you had made it known to our wait staff, who would have rectified the problem immediately.
