Not having been to Baia for quite a few years, we took overseas guests there recently because they wanted to eat fish and seafood in the Waterfront.Of course, being a Capetonian, I know that the Waterfront caters mainly for tourists and , accordingly, the prices are high and not good value for money.But the venue is spectacular and it is...

We were lucky to be served by a young lady from Serbia who was simply amazing! Enjoyed the view of the waterfront while we dined. O enjoyed the cerviche starter and the tre pesca (sp) main. Absolutely delicious. A friend had the bone marrow which was to die for. We had such a good experience that we returned two nights... More

A good choice if you are looking for a quality Seafood restaurant. Plenty of options on the menu with knowledgeable service staff. Busy, vibrant atmosphere in the V&A Waterfront. Prices are very reasonable, especially for overseas customers who can take advantage of the weakened SA Rand.

Food was good but nothing special. I had a curry and my boyfriend a fish plate that was a bit better. A little bit too expensive in comparison with other goo restaurants.

Huge restaurant at the Waterfront serving a wide choice of seafood. Clearly very popular as it was very busy and service can be a bit slow because of that. There is such a huge choice on the menu that we had difficulty deciding, and would love to have the opportunity to go back to try the different things on the... More

My father wanted to have seafood specifically for his celebration dinner and I choose Baia as the venue. We were seated in the second large outdoor section and the views were great. The food service was ok and the food was excellent . Overall it was a good event out with the food, service and location making it a success.... More

This restaurant offers a high quality sea food - simply grilled but artistically served and presented, from baby calamari to the fish of the day and a variety of shellfish; long wine list with the amazing selection of local wines; friendly and knowledgeable hosts, affordable prices.
