Why the name “Bacalao”?

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.

My husband and I were in NF for a wedding (his 1st trip). We had spent the day sightseeing and were hungry for something not “fast food.” We say the ad for Bacalao at the Delta Hotel. We hoofed it up Barter’s Hill and suffice it to say we were not disappointed. My husband’s halibut was the best he had ever tasted with the lime/butterscotch/miso sauce. I had the risotto. Excellent!! We shared the calamari as an appetizer. Fantastic. We recommended this place to a fellow CFA who was attending the same wedding. Kudos for your menu, your staff and your work with local suppliers.
