Expert review of Restaurante Bahia
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.
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.
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.
A bit nonplussed, but just about ‘correcto’ as we say here in Spain. It gets the job done in other words.
A prime spot on the shores of the bay, and it won't cost you the earth.
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.
Call ahead to snag your spot on the terrace, or suffer terrace-envy the rest of the afternoon/night.
