We came here on vacation and were staying at the Bahia Hotel. On the first night We didn't want to travel too far for dinner, so we went to the Shipwreck. We're from New York and we've had good food. The food at Shipwreck was unexpectedly good for a hotel restaurant. The servers were really friendly and helpful. When we asked for the best and the freshest the waiter went down the menu and gave his recommendations. He didn't tell us anything about the Bahia Salad, so we were surprised by the size and taste. For $6 there was plenty of lettuce, the cheese was thinly shredded so that it wasn't overwhelming but lent a creaminess, dried cranberries, banana chips, dried pineapples and a passion fruit dressing lent a bit of sweetness. The waiter told us the specials were the freshest and recommended the scallops in a light curry sauce. My husband doesn't like curry so much and he liked this dish. It had just enough spice, but it was not overwhelming. The red snapper special was in a mole-like sauce that was really good and the fish was cooked just right. It was very tender.
We don't usually like red snapper and we finished this dish. I ordered the special lobster and crab linguine. It wasn't exceptional, but it was satisfying and it had real crab meat. The only complaint we had is we came in June and it's hot and muggy. This place is out in the open without any mosquito candles.
