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.
An incredible experience and best 90th birthday party I could have imagined. Food was delicious, Cod was melt-in-your mouth spectacular. Dessert was divine. And the service was far above and beyond!
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).
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?
Homemade ravioli was the best thing ever! I want to get it for take out so I can eat it every day for a week!
Your restaurant is amazing! It was recommended to us by my sister who lives in St. John’s, so when my husband and I visited there last week, eight of us went there for Sunday Brunch. We loved the food. Awesome presentation. Wonderful service. The owners and staff were really friendly and made us feel welcome. We plan to go there for dinner next time!
Our meal here was as perfect as I thought it would be. The jiggs dinner cabbage rolls and the moose served in a burgundy pinot noir sauce with blueberries and bacon were absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere, service and food was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant! Our server was Tracy and she was so wonderful! Thanks!
My friends and I had brunch at your resturant today. Wow….I have got to say, it was a fantastic meal. We really enjoyed your fine cusine and will be back again very soon!
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).
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.
On the evening of July 7th, my wife and I had our very first experience with dining in this magnificent restaurant. Friends from Ontario were visiting and, wanting to try authentic NL cuisine excluding fast-food fish ‘n chips, asked us to recommend a place to eat. We chose Bacalao because we had heard excellent reports and hadn’t been there before. What a marvelous eating experience! Our waitress was superb – friendly without being imposing, professional, yet very relaxed, and displaying such knowledge of the restaurant’s offerings as to be quite impressive. Service was fast, but yet allowed plenty of time for both digestion and conversation. My wife and both of our companions had the pan-fried cod that evening, while I tried the seafood medley. We all raved at both the taste and the presentation. Entrees were preceded by appetizers which included mussels, cod tongue salad, and a very strange-sounding soup. There were so many mussels that they had to be shared! The desserts were to die for!! We will highly recommend this restaurant to both locals and CFA’s, and will definitely be back. Congratulations to all.
