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!

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

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

A must try if you'd like to experience a calm french lunch on the island. The location is not one with Island views but the food is great and they have an extensive... More

The food was good, but not in any way extraordinary and we felt that it was completely overpriced concerning quality.
