We were told of this place by our tour guide and it was a great choice. Casual and friendly atmosphere right on the wharf.The waiter was very informative and even advised us against one of the fish selections my wife was thinking of ordering because he did not think that she would like it. Our eventual selections were perfectly cooked... More

This is a Waterfront Area restaurant that is open on Sunday. The views from the outside deck are beautiful but sometimes hard to get. The restaurant is expensive by Cape Town standards. A meal for two was about R900 without any alcohol or dessert. However, it was well worth it as the tuna and salmon raw entree was delicious as... More

If you like sea food, then this resteraunt is a must to eat at. The seafood platters are out of this world. we had the mussels and calamari to start, and then the shellfish platters with the prawns, langoustines and lobster. Huge portions, but so good we did not want to waste anything. excellent wine choices. We left the resteraunt,... More

I booked this restaurant before leaving the UK as I heard it was very popular. We celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary here. We were shown to a table overlooking the waterfront which was adorned with rose petals. Service was excellent, so was the food and wine. This is mainly a fish restaurant but also does meats such as steak and... More

The place came recommended, and didn't dissapoint. Food was good, not exceptional, prices are higher then in most of SA, but the food is better then what you get at most places at the waterfront. View was quite nice.

Went here on a Saturday night for dinner and we were quite impressed after a few negative comments about service in TA. We had a lovely table overlooking the marina and our waitress Michaela was superb. My starter of langoustines/spinach in a cream sauce was delicious and our fish mains were also really fresh and perfectly cooked. The restaurant is... More

On recommendation we visited this sea food restaurant. Sea food and fish platter was absolutely delicious. With crispy French fries and savoury rice as sides. Garlic and lemon butter to ad if necessary. Personally I felt that it wasn't needed as it had been cooked to perfection.

Can't praise highly enough everything about our dinner at Baia. The greeting as we arrived was warm and friendly; the view a delight; an expansive menu featuring local seafood; uniquely flavoured meals ( I had the langoustines which I would highly recommend); and for us Aussies all at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this restaurant to all visitors... More
