One of the best restaurant on the island. The food was magnificent, the presentation was spectacular, and the staff was terrific. If you are in Saint Martin, you must visit this restaurant. I have the tuna tartar and smoke salmon dish and it was excellent. My wife had the lobster with foie gras, and absolutely loved it. Oh, and I... More

Bacchus is a unique restaurant located inside a wine distribution warehouse in the Hope Estate Industrial Center on the French side. They are open for luncheon only. Its siting masks the fine restaurant located within. The atmosphere is elegant and the cuisine rates among the very best in St Martin. It was a hot afternoon so we appreciated the a/c... More

What a fantastic experience/ambiance from sitting down to finishing our food! Benjamin (one of the owners) was extremely personable, friendly, and made our experience - at this fine restaurant - extraordinary! The wine, food, and atmosphere are the best on the island (St. Maarten). Make sure you dine here for a memorable experience!

The staff was very nice. I had gazpacho with was very nice. I also had a mixed green salad with shrimp and duck breast with potato puffs with... More

Tricky to find . . . this restaurant is located in the back of an industrial park area. But it was worth the search. Attached to a gourmet and wine shop, this upscale lunch restaurant offered absolutely delicious food. A pumpkin soup sampler started the meal. We each had perfectly prepared food. The service was somewhat inconsistent, but this is... More

As I have previously reported, Bacchus excels in all categories. We had wine, gazpacho, mussels and salad for a light lunch. Everything was just plain wonderful. If only they were open for dinner. It is not a quick stop not is it a place for the slight of wallet. But, for a great dining experience at noon there can be... More

Wow as always, wish I had time to go for lunch here more often as I always have a great time eating in this hidden away spot in Hope Estate. When tourists ask me for a great spot to have lunch (well apart from Loterie Farm) I always mention Bacchus and I do so because A), that's my honest opinion... More

Saint Martin is a BOAT RIDE away from Saba, where my cousin lives with her Man. They own Juliana's hotel and have a very decent restaurant but like to.... Eat like I do... Bacchus is a deli gone wild, the food very French and more then excellent. The wine selection is out of this world and the patrons also very... More
