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.
What a great restaurant you have! I rate it a 10++++ NO questions asked! And, wonderful owners, and staff. You could NOT ask for better. Word of mouth is the best advertising, and I have spread the word. Please keep up the great work. You are, and will continue to be, a great success. My sister, who was there during Christmas, and New Years’ Eve, enjoyed every minute. She said it was better then any New Years’ Eve party, she has ever been to. She will spread the word to her friends in New Brunswick. Cheers!
Barbara and I experienced a wonderful dinner the charcuterie plate was exceptional. Salt cod and pork belly was a truly local food event. Our server, Danny, was attentive and informative, especially so when providing details of the food and its preparation.
Great food, best I ever had in Newfoundland and some of the best I’ve ever had tout court! Very good service too. Overall a great eating experience.
We visited your restaurant for lunch with my brother and sister-in-law and loved your emphasis on the local Newfoundland food. The presentataion was done with a flair, the taste was great and the service friendly, attentive and accommodating. We expecailly liked you partridge berry fiz and the ginger cake is unique and the best we’ve ever tasted. We’ll be back the next time we visit St. John’s. Kudo’s to the chef, and staff.
Spectacular food, wine and service. Nice to see even though you are a fine dinning class restaurant you have stayed true to the Newfoundland tradition in you dishes. If I’m in NL I want cod in any form. The fish was great, hope we can make it back some day?
For me being a aussie, and in province getting married, my wife a local girl, what a restaurant, this was out of this world, the tastes and textures of the meal, the ambience of the restaurant, and the service meant you wanted to come back for more, and thats what we did on the Wednesday, so for both a Aussie, and a local we both agreed that this restaurant is one not to miss
I am originally from NFLD, but have lived in California for 30 years! My friends took me to your restaurant tonight. It was absolutely amazing. The food, staff and atmosphere was excellent!! You made my trip back to the island a wonderful experience! Thank you!!!
I just want to say that I love how you focus on local products from local producers. I think it’s just wonderful. Looking forward to eating at you restaurant very soon.
Another excellent dining experience at Bacalao this evening with my wife and daughter celebrating Father’s Day. Food and service were amazing – unexpected thanks from Bacalao as our table was 20 minutes late – very classy treatment, Bacalao!! will be back soon. server was fantastic as well.
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.
