Lovely dinner and great atmosphere. The view makes the restaurant extra special. Service good despite being very busy. Meal a bit pricey but certainly a must visit for great seafood!

If you are looking for expensive seafood, Baia is the place to go, you will be absolutely gouged. They have a monopoly and with their pleasant ocean views it's a complete tourist trap. Be warned, you will pay for bread brought to your table. If...More

Had a nice dinner at sunset, good food and the company of my partner, lovely views of the mother nation whilst the mother city turns to night mode. Well worth it

We have eaten at Baia a few times now, and it's a good restaurant. Just not great. The service wasn't great, the waitress forgot our order (mind you, we do order too much for 2 x people). We ordered the mussels, oysters, langoustines and linefish....More

A good light seafood lunch of seafood salad and kingklip fillet. The calamari in the salad was tasty and the light butter dressing for the fillet combined with some Asian flavours was very tasty. Service was fine and the view of Table Mountain was exceptional.

Fantastic view but really disappointing food. My game fish cheviche starter was tasteless and unappealing and my tuna main was overcooked and tasteless. They did offer not to charge us for my main but still disappointing experience given the beautiful setting.
