Not impressive

We had early dinner and was not impressed with the food. Really boring hamburger, both meat and bread was totally dried ut. Great location and nice view of course, but that does not make up for the food.

The management of this restaurant need to pay attention. Either it needs more staff or better trained people. We waited and waited for everything, from menus to appetizers, to main courses, and the check. One waitress seemed to be responsible for ten tables. When our meals arrived they came at different times and were incomplete. The food was just a... More

This restaurant provides a lovely open air view of the Punda waterfront. We had a delicious oyster soup and yeshi yena. Our waiter, Victor Tapia, gave us great service and the wait for our dinner was not too long.

ate dinner here tonight, it was outstanding. From the moment we arrived, and we were given a table next to the water to people watch and enjoy the view. We started with the escargot, they were delicious, I had the whole red snapper, cooked perfectly! My husband had the filet and asparagus, also cooked perfectly. We finished with tiramisu. Our...

We enjoyed our meal at La Bahia, a basic continental menu. Not spectacular but good food. The best part is the location, especially at sunset. We watched the pontoon bridge open and close, and as the sun went down the lights came on and it was lovely.

Food was faster, cheaper and the service much better than others in town. Would recommend checking it out one evening at sunset

Good restaurant, nice staff, a little overpriced. Run away from the 3D fish! The shrimp Hawaiian style is great!

We decided to have diner here, because the Gouverneur, next door was closed for a private party. Same view, but that's about it. First, the view is from behind glass. No breeze of wind. It looks shabby, like a simple diner, but prices are from a first class restaurant. Really, that is absolutely not the case. I can honestly say,... More

The food from three of us was good , but we had to wait over two hours to get it. The steak was probably ready one hour before and overcooked and cold. That was the meal for the fourth guest so no good. No clean toilets, Not to return again unless they get themselves better organised

Waited for 2h and still no food. After 2h when the food came it was just so bad. The service didn't care at all. Don't ever go to la Bahia!
