This place was recommended to us by the tour boat operator at the Butchart Gardens. It was everything he said it could be. The food was incredible and portions were large. My wife and I had Cannelloni stuffed with seafood and my son had Jambalaya. Both were fabulous. You can eat out on the deck overlooking the small harbor or... More

I know it is supposed to be the Bayou, but the food did not live up to the prices and even the bathroom was located outside and around the back. Sorry guys!

The outside looks a bit iffy..... But once you step inside the front door it is like stepping into the New Orleans culture, food was excellent

Love the fried green tomatoes. I have to admit that although I try to order something else for a change I can't NOT have them. My friends give me a taste of their meals but I am reluctant to share mine!

They have an interesting menu and the food usually comes up to expectations - with the odd disappointment...... However, the location and ambience are wonderful as this little restaurant is situated right on the water overlooking the bay and the distant Malahat mountains - lots going on - kayakers, ferry, sailing boats etc. The waitress, depending who you get, is...

Came here for some beers and appy's. Had great service and food. Lovely views sitting out on over water patio. Make sure to use the washroom and check out the interior, lots of interesting stuff posted on the walls!

If you like jambalaya, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is very New Orleans and just a fun place for dinner. The view is superb, the food tasty and the service is fabulous! A bit off the beaten track but so much fun, I love discovering these local spots.

After years of visiting Brentwood Bay, and seeing this place, I was finally talked into stopping by by my seven year old. Boy, am I glad we did! Funky, small, wicked good. In the words of my son: "what's with this crazy-good sauce?!?" We shared the HUGE Whistling Dixie, and the Cajun chicken and rice soup. Go!!
