We had lunch here today. Overall a good range of food, good service, and good tasting meals. Some of the chips were a little cold, but that was only a minor problem.

Thank you for your review DJP. I am pleased that our team were able to provide you with an overall good experience. Not good about the cold chips though, for which I apologize...nothing worse than cold chips!! The only option, crispy golden on the outside and hot oozing in the inside! Thank you for your business.

This place is fabulous with a couple of old timers in the band jamming to the blues!!! Great entertainment, with good food! Highly recommend if you are looking for a unique experience during your stay. Owners need to have a lit up sign out on the road to make the public aware you are open on certain evenings.

We were staying up the road and were fed up with resort food so this place was such a breath of fresh air to visit for dinner!

"BringOnTheFun" indeed!! Thank you for your review, noting all the positive things about our little neighborhood blues joint. With regards to the long wait that does happen from time to time with large parties coming in without making reservations. It does take us by surprise especially when it's back to back.

We stopped for lunch and noticed that one restaurant in the group of three or four around the lagoon at Pacific Harbour had many more customers than the others. Baka Blues was not the popular one. We chose it because of the music playing. We ordered the ribs to share and they were very dry with hardly any sauce. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review JD. I think it is unfair that you commented "Baka Blues was not the popular one". Could it be that on the day you came that those that were having lunch at Oasis and Water's Edge wanted to eat Pizza, or a Curry, or Chinese, which we do not serve... More

Baka Blues have the best American style ribs and burgers in Fiji. They also have a pretty cool jazz band on certain nights of the week. If you're in Pacifica Harbour - don't leave until you've had dinner or lunch here.

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"...
