The food and wine, with a taste of South Africa, were excellent and reasonably priced. The service was very good. If you have the right table, you can have a good view of the harbour and Table Mountain. You would be grateful of the glass, when it is windy. I have no hesitation recommending this restaurant.

Such a fun evening. The food was excellent. The waiter was very attentive and service excellent. It is best to book as is very popular with beautiful views across the harbour.

Even better this is one of the very first restaurants at the bay front and it keeps a consistently high quality. I had a delicious tuna with jalapeño followed by a very well prepared baby chicken with a very good seasoning and perfectly cooked. The standard was excellent and the service friendly and good even if staff training needs embellishment.

Excellent view of the harbor. Good place to come in a big group. They gave us an outdoor table which had a great view, though it got quite cold late in the night. Excellent raw bar and Kingklip.

My wife and I are seafood lovers and ate dinner at Baia and I t did not disappoint. From the first floor terrace we had an excellent view of Table Mountain looking across the Waterfront. We both had a seafood platter of prawns, king prawns, queen pawns and langoustines. This was some of the best seafood we have eaten with... More

Fantastic meal, great views and fantastic service... we did go for our meal about 9pm so most of the mad rush had gone. We both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly.

My wife and I dined here during our recent stay in Cape Town after the restaurant was recommended to us by a tour guide. After initially perusing the menu, I was somewhat dismayed to note that virtually ever item seemed to feature some variation of shellfish, which I'm allergic to. However, after talking with our waiter (whose name escapes me,... More

Sadly this restaurant was on the tip of everyone's tongue from the place we stayed, to on the street when we inquired about seafood. Four of us ate there in November. Although a big medical conference had also landed, this restaurant (situated in one of the new build expensive malls) was half empty. The harbour-view is minimal except for a... More

This restaurant is in the V & A Waterfront shopping complex, and is a step up in terms of service & food quality from the others we tried. The menu is biased towards seafood, but there are plenty of other options. The food was excellent, and we had valuable help from the wine waiter as to the best pairing to... More
