Every single meal I have ordered was mouth watering good! The prices are cheap and portions are generous, I have been dinning here for over 10 years and will go back again & again!

Nothing fancy, just good eats! Service was good and waitress knew her specials and menu. We like mom and pop type places and this was definitely that type place.

We have lived in St. Pete now for over a year and have seen commercials for Babalu's many times, but never went there. Last night we gave it a try.

My wife and I stopped in for Sunday brunch. It was our first time here. We had the stuffed French toast with mascarpone cheese! Great price, great portion. Thank you Natasha, we really enjoyed the service, and we will definitely be back!

My wife and I with our four kids have eaten at Babalu several times. I've tried everything that came to the table and it has all been very good. Good sized portions so you really get your money's worth. Alway's check the specials board and save room for dessert!
