    I love this place so much! The food, ambiance, and staff is always amazing. Can’t go wrong with the bacon wrapped dates and the omelet plate.

    Food was ok. Service was excellent. The environment on a Sunday evening was loud, rain peeked through the roof and wet the area close to us. Seated against the wall on one side, and squeezing away from the puddle felt a bit tight. Had better culinary experiences here before….

    This was our first visit to Café Ba-Ba-Reeba, but it definitely will not be our last. Wonderful food that isn’t widely found.
