Always so hard to find consistent and quality good food in Fiji. So Bakablues is a godsend.On my many travels back and forth on the coast this has to be my favourite joint. Our recent family booking was a wonderful night, great company music excellent food always and they only serve what is freshly available. The lake with the water... More

It was the 1st week of May not a peak time,we went for the house specialty advertised ribs and music. After being there a while it became apparent that the ribs were unavailable and there was no music that night despite being told there would be earlier during the day. The food was OK nothing special and fairly expensive for... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review Dale. Yes, we don't always have our ribs as they are popular and although we order from our suppliers the amounts that we require for each week, they don't always have the quantities to send us. There-in, is the problem we face each and every week. With reference to our... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant, sometimes finding good food is difficult in Fiji. The wonderful Fijian people more than make up for this shortcoming. We were in Pacific Harbour for two weeks. The resort had a very nice restaurant, but we like to experiment around the area we are visiting. Baka Blues has a definite New Orleans feel about it,... More

We popped in here yesterday to ask when the live music was on and they told us tonight (Sunday) and so we were really looking forward to a night of live music and good food.

Thank you for writing your very honest review ChartteJay. Two ill managed nights in a row, is not something that will help my business grow positively. Considering Baka Blues Cafe` will be 7 on the 5th August, this "Terrible on so many levels" does not sit well with me as the Owner. We only want happy customers, and we certainly... More

Just had some fantastic beef short ribs at the Bula Blues Cafe. Fabulous atmosphere at the outdoor tables. Service is very friendly and some great blues tunes playing. Highly recommended for its great value.

2 of us went to visit on a Wednesday night. The decorations is cool with a drum set and guitar on stage but we were told no body will be performing this week. We shared a scallop as starter and a pork rib. Taste average.

The atmosphere, decoration and music are great. Sit outside by the lily pond and enjoy a couple of drinks, I'd say.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review Pierre.

It is one of our signature dishes. Our BBQ sauce is not right out of... More
