I have been to this restaurant twice. Both times, the food was incredible, the staff was incredible, and the atmosphere is nice. I would not recommend it as a place for Valentine's Day because they cram too many tables in the room and there is no privacy.

Just eaten at Bacalao in Newfoundland and all i can say is wow! It was amazing, I started with cod au Gratin, I am not great on strong tasting fish but this was perfect. Main course was Caribou - I wanted to try it as it is not something we get in the UK and it was moist, non fatty and just wonderful and came in a nice sauce with vegetables and gnocci, and then desert was a peanut butter meringue with partridge berry filing - it had a different name but it was divine. Service was good, it was not the cheapest place in the World but worth every penny. I would say this place is a must if you are in the area

We went to Bacalao on December 31 to ring in the New Year for the second year in a row.
We were very impressed once again with the high level of service and the quality of the food.
What a treat indeed! The staff was wonderful and Chef Mike spoke to us after our meal was completed and asked how we enjoyed it. (everything is made from scratch I might add). The food was superb. We have booked again for next year. St. John's has a new #1 eatery.

I ate at Bacalao on 21st December 2012 and I have to say the food I had (calamari to start and the pan fried cod with bean succotash as main) was some of, if not the best, I have had in St John's. In addition our waitress was great, she was efficient, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. All in all a very enjoyable evening at a time of year when restaurants can be a little hit and miss
