Why the name “Bacalao”?

Newfoundland shares its culinary history of enjoying salt cod with many other cultures. Bacalao (bak-al-OW) is the word used for salt cod (in various spellings and pronunciations) throughout the Mediterranean. The versatility and much-beloved nature of this time-honoured staple ingredient is the inspiration for our name and exemplifies our innovative interpretation of Newfoundland cuisine.

What a great restaurant you have! I rate it a 10++++ NO questions asked! And, wonderful owners, and staff. You could NOT ask for better. Word of mouth is the best advertising, and I have spread the word. Please keep up the great work. You are, and will continue to be, a great success. My sister, who was there during Christmas, and New Years’ Eve, enjoyed every minute. She said it was better then any New Years’ Eve party, she has ever been to. She will spread the word to her friends in New Brunswick. Cheers!
