MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This charming bistro nestles in the winding streets of a sleepy village and is named after the oranges for which the area is famed. It’s made up of three cosy dining rooms with stone walls, vaulted arches and low lighting; the team are charming and attentive and the atmosphere is nicely relaxed.

By way of contrast to the setting, the cooking at Bahia is modern and innovative, with plenty of intricacy and finesse. The talented chef is skilled in the classics but likes to experiment with the great quality regional ingredients at his disposal, meaning that the menu changes frequently. The seemingly simple-looking dishes belie the thought that has gone into them and come with complementary combinations and a wonderful depth of flavour. This is the sort of restaurant everyone would love to have at the end of their road.
