Nouvelle Newfoundland Cuisine


Celebrating the cuisine and culture of Newfoundland & Labrador
Bacalao offers a unique and innovative presentation
of the foods, flavours, produce and spirits of our province.

Newfoundland shares its culinary history of enjoying salt cod with many other cultures.
Bacalao (bak-al-OW) is the word used for salt cod (in various spellings and pronunciations)
throughout the Mediterranean. The versatility and
much-beloved nature of this time-honoured
staple ingredient is the inspiration for our name and exemplifies
our innovative interpretation of Newfoundland cuisine.

at the Olympic Gold Medal Plates Competition in November 2011!

On my recent vacation to St. John's, visiting Bacalao was at the top of my to-do list...and it did not disappoint. We ate there with groups of family and friends on two occasions, once for Saturday brunch and again for a Friday night dinner. The atmosphere was quaint, the service was fun and friendly, and the food was excellent. Not only is Bacalao's take on Newfoundland cuisine extraordinary, but most importantly the food tastes great and looks great. From the breads, spreads, salt cod fritters, cod tongues, pot liquor shooters, halibut and caribou, everything was expertly prepared, fresh and well seasoned. I know where I'll be going to eat the next time I get off the plane in St. John's. You should be proud of what you have established! Top notch indeed.
