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.
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!

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!

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!

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.
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!
