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.
Delightful! A delicious meal and charming personalities!
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!!!
Had a great meal last night, we wre there with another couple. Staff was great and food super especially the cabbage roll. Have recommended your place to friends already
I was here with my wonderful husband and my two lovely children, for my birthday. We ordered the wonderful food, and ate it all. It filled us all up. It was a wonderful day and night, and I absolutely recommend everyone to go there. It was an memory that I shall never forget. It was classy, and just simply wonderful. I’m definitely coming back again! PS: The waiters were so friendly!
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).
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.
Thank you to all the staff who accommodated our group of 20 after my Dad’s funeral on such a short notice. Nothing but compliments to the assorted dishes they had and the atmosphere was great. I will certainly be back.
We attended Bacalao this afternoon for brunch. The Nouvelle Newfoundland Cuisine was exceptional, the service was superior and professional. It is impressive to have traditional Newfoundland food with exotic twists in a modern bistro style resto. One of the best experiences in Newfoundland without question. I will recommend it to anyone visiting the province.
Bacalao was one of our best dining experiences of the entire year, anywhere in the world! We had to come back for one last meal in Newfoundland before returning to New York. Thank you, Mike and staff, for showing us the best of Newfoundland – the local dishes and ingredients, the wines, and most of all your friendliness and hospitality. If only we had a restaurant like this in New York City! We can’t wait to come back again.
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!
