Description: Located on a picturesque peninsula on Mission Bay, Café Bahia is the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant of the Bahia Hotel. Its contemporary dining room, dotted with dark wood tables and scenic paintings, sits adjacent to an outdoor patio where Old World design elements like a three-tier fountain, textured white walls and wooden beams deliver European ambience. Led by Executive Chef Brett Wegrzyn, Café Bahia caters to a variety of tastes through American and international cuisine. Highlights include the Sunrise Breakfast Buffet, a lunch menu that spans beyond borders with items like Apple Cider Braised Pork Tacos, and thoughtful dinner entrées including Sesame Crusted Salmon and Braised Lamb Shank.

We came here for dinner with friends on a Sunday night. Dani took amazing care of us, and Karly mixed us delicious drinks to go with Evan's awesome specials. We shared tuna tartare, soft-shell crabs, pan-seared scallops and the chicken. Everything was so good - not just the main pieces but the sides too. A lot of thought really went into the dishes.
I'm gluten free, and after I let Evan know he made sure that he adapted every dish so that I could have it. He was really knowledgeable about how he could modify things so that I could still enjoy them safely.
Dani recommended the Cucumber Cooler for me, and it was delicious. We were all super happy with our drinks - I bet Karly mixed them with love.
We've been talking about this meal for a few days - always a good sign!

The food was good, service was even better. Miguel was very attentive and was very helpful in recommending things to see and do in the area.

Great food, excellent value. They offer a buffet that did not appeal to me, but was perfect for my daughter. The selection of fresh fruits, cereal & pancakes worked out great for her. And kids buffet is is $9!!! I had the chilaquiles, which were very good. Our bill came to $20. Nice!! Service was also very good.

If yoy eant a buffet or order from the menu this is a good place to eat. I had Eggs Benedict they were done perfectly along with my requested "Extra Crispy" potatos. My friend loved her French Toast also. Good service. Nice outside patio seating also. Then take a walk around the property alonf the water.
