Celebrating the cuisine and culture of Newfoundland & Labrador, Bacalao offers comfortable fine dining in a turn of the century home with a passionate focus on local seafood, game, produce and spirits.
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.
Best meal in the whole province the week we were there. Amazing food, presentation and service.

We spoke to Mike briefly but we had no idea that the other part of the duo was Andrea Maunder.
