Baia brings the spirit of Latin America to the Caribbean through mouth watering Peruvian-fusion food, exceptional cocktails and live entertainment in a laid back, rustic luxurious setting.

We take you through a journey of vibrant and fresh flavours and textures. From the different Peruvian chilli, corn and smoke to coconut, chocolate and lime. Experience the different flavours in our ceviches, raw bar and open charcoal grilled dishes. All while in a lively atmosphere with the stunning backdrop of the Caribbean Sea.

In our Main Bar, take a seat and browse the shelves, our bartenders will be delighted to pick something out for you, especially from our extensive list of tequilas!
Down on our beach deck, take in the view and vibe of the entire restaurant while sipping on our signature baia sour or a glass of rose, watching the sun go down and feel the beat as the music turns up...

    It was our first time and the menu was a little strange to us we ordered all the different starters and then didn’t really have room for a main course. The service was outstanding food lovely and very different. We will be returning to sample more of their delights

    We enjoyed Baia very much. The second floor view is spectacular. Food was outstanding and flavourful. The only concern was that we felt rushed and processed too quickly.

    We shared 6 starters and then dessert. The pork belly, tuna taco, lamb, grilled veg were all outstanding. We thought the tomato was too cold so flavour may have been better if not straight from fridge. We found the sauce on the Tuna Akami was too strong and too sweet. These were minor points when evaluating an otherwise wonderful set of dishes. Great staff and good fun - being so different offering to other restaurants on the island. Congratulations Baia

    Requested a table by the balcony upstairs as my guest wasn't going to be able to cope with heat however, was given a table by the stairs. When my guest arrived, we requested to move as a table become available, it was granted. The food was good, and service was nice. I would recommend but would be back because the type of cuisine is not for me but my guest enjoyed it.

    I love the ambiance of the restaurant and the helpfulness of the staff. They made sure I was comfortable at all time with my seating. They made every effort to make my favorite drink perfect (i really appreciated this). The only issue (which is really not an issue) is that for some dishes that do not have complete meal groups, I would like the waiter to upsell the side dishes which would bring it to the customer's attention. For example, my meal didn't come with veg and I only realized after it was received. I would have ordered Veg, had I realized. However, I would definitely return to try more dishes. 10/10 would recommend :)

    Wow, this is a great addition to the Bajan restaurant scene. Beautiful location and ambiance, fabulous cocktails and really unusual but delicious food. We were blown away by this place and even though it was a little on the expensive side, we went back again as it was sooo good. Staff were great, really helpful and attentive. Have already booked a table for our return in January as I think this will be very popular in the height of the tourist season.

    We had a great night in Baia celebrating our birthdays. The food was delicious, there was a lot, so I took some home for lunch, it was tasty. The price wasn't as expensive as some restaurants of similar standard. We walked as we were staying in Speightstown, but it is a cab / car ride away if not. The service was excellent and staff were very attentive and chatty. The views were stunning, we sat at the top and the ambience was just right, not too quiet and not too loud either, we could chat comfortably and privately. We will definitely be back,

    V.expensive do won't rush back. Food adequate but catch of the day (barracuda on our visit) was chewy and not fresh Rum sours outrageously priced at $25 each and very watery. Lovely setting and nicely dec'd out but rather quiet for a Saturday night.

My friend enjoyed her birthday dinner and our waiter (Henderson/Hendy) if I remembered correctly took great care of us and made sure all was well. Will definitely recommend to others/friends.

    On booking we were told by the front of house staff we would not be disappointed. Well in truth we left feeling indifferent. On the plus side the restaurant is in an ideal seafront location with nice decor competing with the chic upmarket ambiance of some of the more trendy eateries on the island . Staff were courteous although the American style of customer service can seem a little forced. Now for the cons the mixologist who created the cocktail menu really needs to understand that a true cocktail should be well balanced and key ingredients need to be combined to complement each other. Both cocktails our party received were clawing and overpowering. Even serving them in a tall glass with some ice would have improved them. Interestingly the next table to ours sent their cocktails back. The food itself is based on Peruvian influences a novel idea but in this case not particularly well executed. Catch of the day was a beautiful portion of Barracuda which was frankly adulterated with a sweet, creamy sauce with hints of lime. The sauce was too complex and over powering detracting from the fish which if left alone would have been delicious. Portion sizes were small for both mains and side dishes. This was raised with our waitress who did not acknowledge our comment despite asking how we enjoyed the meal. On completion of the meal the duty manager approached us to request feedback. To this lady’s credit she listened attentively to our comments and said she would feed them back to the kitchen. To be honest if she had not been so professional and understanding I doubt we would have considered coming back. As it stands we will try the lunch menu in the next few weeks and see if that provides an improvement.

    Informed The restaurant I was late for the reservation and after arriving I was rushed through the courses cause my table was the last to order

    BaiaResponded on October 2, 2022Dear ShawnP Thank you for your recent visit to baia. Please accept the teams apology for making you feel rushed. I can see that your booking was made for 8:30PM, you informed us that you were running 15 minutes late and arrived after 9PM. We do have our last seating at 9PM and in this case you were the last table to arrive however this is no reason to feel rushed. In the future, should you wish for a break in between courses please do not hesitate to let your waiter know. Kind regards, Baia
