OK, so I work in the restaurant business and it's not always easy to get time off to enjoy a good meal, especially for lunch so...I only go here for lunch when I am not working. Why you ask? Well, as the name implies, there is a wee bit of wine available and there is so much of the good... read more

hint of would you like a menu. pompus asshholes at their best. Clearly we would not eat here, to get a check seemed impossible. This place is great if they get rid of the staff they currently have. I can eat anywhere in the world, this place sucks because of the service,

While hanging with locals in Maho, we started discussing lunch options. Two people chimed in with Bacchus near the Hope Estate toward the north end. That being said, we made a lunch reservation for the next day. See last paragraph for driving directions. This restaurant is one of our two favorites on the island. You will not need a dinner...

We had wonderful 3 hour lunch here and everything was perfect! The service was attentive but didn't hover. Ours was a table for 5 - we had salad & appetizer courses, entrees and desserts. The chef sent an amuse bouche which was a chilled green bean soup - fabulous! The specials were unbelievably good - especially the appetizer sized portion... More

Arrived on time for our lunch reservation and were seated immediately. Then a gentleman came over to take our water order and told us about the menu and specials. Then a lady came over to take my wine order, the waters and wine were delivered right away. Then we waited, and waited, and waited until a third person brought us... More

Was told how great it was... However, when we got there and their menu items were overpriced especially for only lunch items. So we bought a couple of items to go, including a bottle of Canepa Syrah 2006. When we tried to uncork the bottle later that evening, the cork broke two thirds down. We poured the wine and it...

Today I took my husband for a birthday lunch at Bacchus. We had a wonderful lunch. Everything was exquisitely prepared. The service was fantastic. The ambiance lovely and comfortable.. I had escargot..fabulous seafood linguine..more than fabulous. and the creme brule with homemade ginger ice cream? no words. This is a not to be missed restaurant. Open for lunch only.

Bacchus is certainly an amazing dining experience in French Saint Martin, offering up the French culinary treats and wines to match an exposed dining palette. For starters, I choose foie gras which was served with a wonderful marmalade and toast on the side. The duck confit was tender, juicy and delicious and the amazing chocolate dessert served with a scoop... More

Amazing food in the middle of nowhere. We found this gem by accident. Chef, please open for dinner. We had lunch here twice last week. It's air conditioned!! The wine list is extensive. Everything was perfect.

I was searching for wine shops on TripAdvisor and came across this little French restaurant that serves lunch only. After reading reviews and looking at their site, and convinced my husband and friends to have a meal there. I made reservations and we found the place with minimal difficulty. A charming space with white walls, a kitchen with large windows,... More
