There's something magical about Sunset at the V&A waterfront ; the lights start coming on, shimmering on the water, with an illuminated Table Mountain looking on.
From BAIA, You experience this Magic, together with World Class Seafood and Excellent, informed Service. BAIA is a Huge Restuarant, but is broken up into smaller areas, each with a stunning view.

With recommendation in our travel guide and at the hotel, we tried this sea food restaurant. IT IS ABSOLUTELY HUGE, but excellent. A very satisfying experience, first class sea food with one of the larger sea food menus I have come across. We decided not to stay at the table reserved for us because my wife had the beginning of a flu and it was a little drafty, although with a lovely harbour view. In no time, we were assigned another table, out of the draft. Professional help by our rather talkative waiter, which we did in no way regret to have followed: grilled calamari, fabulous yellow tuna tartar, klip fillet. And glasses of Champagne to celebrate the beginning of a three week trip through South Africa and Botswana: a memorable culinary beginning!

Baia is perfectly situated in the V&A complex right on the water, it was a busy night and was filled with many locals, always a good sign. As we are from Australia and we have good local seafood, I have to say this seafood restaurant is excellent - quality of food, wines and waiter was well versed with all items on the menu.
We all had the lobster experience either as a starter or main course – the Mozambique crab was a task to behold and required some patience eating it and apparently it was delicious!!!!
We were all very impressed with Baia and definitely would recommend and it was a great way to finish off our South African holiday!!!!

Food was very good...wife and I had fish and langoustines, kids had smaller dishes. View was good. Service was good though slightly slow (it appears there are often large groups here and they can impact service times). Prices also seemed relatively high (and the waiters seemed to recommend the highest priced items). Overall a good dinner
