From entering until exiting - everything about Baia was excellent. Food always fabulous! Waiters are well trained with excellent knowledge. One of the best seafood restaurants in Cape Town.

My wife and I visit Cape Town for bussiness and pleasure twice a year for a week and have often had lunch at Baia in the waterfront. The interior of the restaurant is very upmarket and the view over the whole of the waterfront is spectacular. The service and food is good, but we find the prices to be really... More

Right on the waterfront with terrific views from its second floor location. Very large menu, with lots of different fish choices (and non-fish options, but we didn't try them). The wish list is South African and very good. Even following a lengthy flight to get here, it was a romantic evening.

Starters of tempura prawns and seafood bisque were both excellent. Main course of pan-fried linefish on a bed of mash and vegetables in champagne sauce was truly delicious. Excellent service. Quite cool even with the benefit of patio heaters. Smart casual dress seemed to be the norm in all restaurants visited.

The Baia was recommended by a friend as one of he best in Cape Town. It is Portuguese or perhaps colonial Mozambiquan. That is certainly where much of the seafood comes from. It is expensive for Cape Town and even by London standards. But it has a wonderful view over the harbour. You also see flocks of birds flying back... More

Wonderful location, excellent staff and waiters. The lobster is a recommendation not to mention the steak. Overall a good place to dine, you cannot go wrong with the BAIA. W&A is always a winner

We went to the restaurant without a reservation and received a wonderful table with an excellent view. The lobster and Langoustine were wonderful.
