We had a lovely dinner of grilled sea bream (besugo) with fresh lagrima peas (guisantes lagrima), a true delicacy known as Guipuzcoan caviar because of its tatse and rarity. Dessert was very good: torrija caramelizada and milhohas. The wine list is extensive.

We had the turbot for two and a nice bottle of white wine. No need to have more for a delicious meal. The view you get for free.

Our group of 11 Finger Lakes producers was very well received. An enjoyable evening. Kaia has an extensive cellar that is exceptionally well curated and that offers exceptional value.

The turbot was spectacular, the highlight of the meal. The lobster was a dream, fresh from their tanks and superbly prepared. The wine list is really interesting and I hope it remains so. Great staff, very helpful, pleasant and couldn't do enough. Did I mention...More

We lunched twice at Kaia as we thought both the food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. We couldn't fault any of the food, and although it is quite expensive we felt it was worth it. The weather was warm enough to sit outside for lunch,...More

Just one dinner here, unlike the other fish restaurants this was a bit 'posh' no problem with that or the good service but it came at a price, the kilo fish prices were very high 120 euros for a kilo of turbot without anything else...More
