Expert review of Restaurante Bahia

An unpretentious fish restaurant with a romantic terrace beneath the pines.

Attached to the Hostal Bahia this restaurant seems to fall under the radar of most. A shame as it’s a simple enough formula, but one that (generally) works. Reel in the catch of the day, cook it simply and well, keep your customers happy.

Food and drink: 

When it is done well this is my kind of cooking. Fresh monkfish, turbot, sole, hake, sardines, or whatever is good at market chalked up on a board, thrown on a grill and served. Unfortunately it can be a little inconsistent.

Ambience: 

Inside it’s a bit brightly lit and a tad noisy: it feels like the restaurant of a hostal, which it is, so you can’t really complain about that. Cross the boardwalk to the terrace though and it’s another world: one of starlight and seashores, love and romance.

Service: 

A bit nonplussed, but just about ‘correcto’ as we say here in Spain. It gets the job done in other words.

Location: 

A prime spot on the shores of the bay, and it won't cost you the earth.

Price advice: 

Fish is sold by weight so you might want to check what it weighs before you order. Bear in mind that a whole John Dory will cost you three or four times that of a Dorado (gilthead bream). Sardines on the other hand are cheap as chips. Expect to spend anywhere upwards of 25 euros a head, including wine.

Tables to book: 

Call ahead to snag your spot on the terrace, or suffer terrace-envy the rest of the afternoon/night.
