When people heard we were going to Cape Town, they kept recommending the same places--and Baia was one of them. We were down at the V&A Waterfront at dinner time and decided to chance a meal even though we didn't have a reservation. The restaurant is large so they didn't have trouble accommodating us, and the service and food were excellent. My husband, our two adult children and I split two seafood platters and a few starters and really enjoyed the meal. The recommended sauvignon blanc complemented the food perfectly. Clientele were very interesting--some dressed to the nines, others in shorts and flip flops--all graciously welcomed.

I believe it was a great restaurant with great food at some point. Service was good still.

Fish & Calamari were all overcooked. Chips were soggy. Wish they weren’t this bad for us given the popularity.

In the touristy area but if you're converting Rand to most other currencies, this place will offer one of the best value seafood platters you've ever eaten.

Was told this was one of the top restaurants in S. Africa in particular Cape Town and it is. We had 14 family members attend dinner., The food and atmosphere are top notch. The service was very good until dessert which took 20 minutes to get. Everyone loved their dinners and would recommend for smaller groups

The view overlooking Table Mountain is breath-taking, the service is amazing and the waiting staff are well trained in what's on to eat. We had the delicious shellfish platter. Will definitely visit again!
