A business meeting, planned to sit inside the restaurant but it was booked for a party so had to settle for outside. Mind you, Abuja is excruciatingly hot this time of the year, but it is what it is. Food was good, tasted delicious, came...out on time and all. We had a babagnoush, a tender lion steak (imported) and a mixed grill. For drinks we had water and orange and ginger drink. The heat aside the ambience was very nice until the flies started congregating around our food. We tried to wave them away but it was an impossibility. Previously they had this trick using burnt coffee that chased all the flies. We requested for it but we were told management had banned the practice. However nothing was in place to deal with the flies. The flies are what stopped this place getting a full five rating. Next time maybe an evening visit?More

Blu Cabana's reputation precedes it! I've been hearing about this place for ages, but never had the opportunity to visit till now. It's located inside a big building- with a gorgeous, sprawling pool and lush greenery, plus a kids play area. A truly lovely sight...to behold! The restaurant is casual, yet classy, all at the same time. The outdoor pool lends it a very cool, breezy and relaxed ambiance. Toilets are super clean. Our waiter was ABRAHAM OJIM. Abraham was very diligent and polite; a truly professional waiter. Thanks to him for being such a great host. We ordered Shrimp Balls, Shawarma Hummus, Shrimp Spring Rolls, Chicken Shawarma, Spicy Seafood Pasta and Mixed Grill. For drinks, we got the Sweet Sunrise. I give top marks to the hummus, shrimp spring rolls and shawarma. All were sinfully delicious, and cooked to perfection. The shrimp balls were just okay, as was the spicy pasta. I thought i'd see some type of pasta other than linguini. The whole dish just wasn't what I expected. My husband enjoyed his mixed grill. The mocktail was really good; refreshing and not too sweet. I'm glad to say that Blu Cabana has really lived up to the hype! This is a truly world-class restaurant for casual dining, and I'm very impressed by the food and service. The only criticism I would give Blu Cabana is that the food took forever to be served, even though we had told Abraham to bring the shrimp balls, hummus, spring rolls and shawarma as appetizers. We waited for what seemed like 30 minutes or more to receive the mocktails and any appetizer. I would also suggest they serve a complimentary snack, (like a basket of bread & butter, potato chips, etc). It just seems 'appropriate' for a place of this calibre. All in all, I enjoyed my experience at Blu Cabana Restaurant, and will most definitely look forward to returning very soon! Highly, highly recommended!!! 👍🏽More

Blu Cabana offers a wide variety of dishes (European, Lebanese, Indian, Italian and more) at very affordable prices. Mediterrean Chicken and pizzas are just declisious! The restaurant is modern, well maintained, very clean and has access to a great pool where you can order your...food as well. Food comes out very fast (even during busy days) and the service is very good.More

I take my family here often because it has a clean soft play area, clean swimming , and most importantly clean toilets. Food is okay, but bland and light on the vegetables. Service is very slow and sometimes the servers are rude, and the owners...are always apologetic on behalf of the staff. It’s a bit pricey for the quality of food. Having said that will probably continue to visit because after Pujo eat and play closer their soft play, it is the only place in Abuja clean enough for my kids. It’s still cheaper than flying to Lagos, London, or Dubai for the weekend so it’s as good as it gets in Abuja for a family restaurant with an adequate soft play area. For food and service recommend any of the Dunes restaurants, but their play area is in the back and you can’t eat and let the kids play.More

The prices are okay when you take into account the ambience, the quality of offering and the service provided. Also their comparators are maybe just a tad bit more expensive in my opinion.
