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.
Great food, absolutely wonderful place to dine. We’re both Nflder’s, enjoyed being home dining at a real downhome restaurant. Great service…great people…what can we say! We spoke to Mike briefly but we had no idea that the other part of the duo was Andrea Maunder. I worked with your Dad for many years at CJON/Q-RADIO and as a matter of fact he was the master of ceremonies at our wedding 29 yrs ago this month. Please say hello to him for us My maiden name was (Sullivan).
I brought a tour of 45 people to the Bacalao today for lunch. It was a dining experience all tourists should enjoy. The meal and service was as good as it gets. Thank you.
Last night we gathered at Bacalao for a meeting of old girlfriends… and what a wonderful experience we had! The atmosphere was cozy, the food was delightful and the service as second to none. Well done all – we’ll be sure to recommend you to others. Congratulations on being yet another Newfoundland and Labrador success story!
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?
We very much enjoyed our visit to your restaurant last night. The food was spectacular and the servings certainly left noone hungry. The chicken and fish were moist and fresh. I loved the Rasberry Fizz recommended by your server and I thought the Lemon cheesecake was fantastic! Our server was very friendly and was knowledgeable about the menu. It was a very relaxing atmosphere where I felt like I was not rushed through my meal (as a mom of a toddler that does not happen often). Thank you so much for a wonderful evening out!
Best meal in the whole province the week we were there. Amazing food, presentation and service.
Best in St. John’s. My family’s new favorite. (but a bit drafty by the front door, which encourages the eating of hot dishes).
This was my first visit to Newfoundland and it did not disappoint! After asking co-workers where to go for supper, I was given your restaurants name. All I can say is WOW! I loved everything from the location, the atmosphere, service and,of course, the food. It was all fit for a king. I can’t wait to get back for another visit because it with absolutely include a stop here. Thanks for everything!
