Nice food, great value - and friendly staff

Visited here with a group of friends. We don't get the chance to meet up often so wanted somewhere that we could actually have a conversation over a nice meal without spending too much money.

Popped in here for lunch on Tuesday afternoon. Ordered the lunch deal, £7.95 for a starter and main. I wasn't expecting anything impressive. I ordered meatballs to start and was disappointed to only get 2 small meatballs, the main wasn't much better, a standard burger and chips. So I'd say a safe option for a pretty average lunch out. I... More

Popped in for some lunch and was pleasantly surprised. We both had haggis balls with teriyaki dip and lovely fresh salad. We both then had scampi and chips with salad. Everything was lovely. The salad had a delicious dressing. As it was a rare sunny day, we enjoyed a drink outside. Both happy with the food, the service and the... More

We visited Bacchus yesterday for a cocktail and platter deal but unfortunately just as our food arrived I received an emergency call and had to leave, the barman was really helpful and packaged up our food to take away - so after things were sorted at home we enjoyed our delicious Garlic Mushroom Crostini, Nachos and Haggis tempura. I did... More

I live 100 metres from this place, and regularly pop in. Ticks all the boxes and some. Also open till 2am if you fancy a late drink, but can't be bothered with night clubs.

Had a day out with my girlfriend in the city centre and decided to head into Bacchus and was delighted with everything on offer. We had a few great cocktails which were all really well priced considering we were in the heart of the merchant city. We went for the set 2 courses meal deal, I thought they were really... More

We came here based on previous reviews and we did not regret it; quiet the opposite: we enjoyed yummy cocktails and great food (2 courses for £10) and the staff was very friendly, too. We can highly recommend this place for a fun and easy night out.
