We came here on a wednesday night for our anniversary dinner and we were glad we did. The place by itself is very romantic, staff were very nice and polite. The starters and the main courses were more then excellent. Portions were more then enough. The deserts are a bit expensive but very worth it. The pistaccio cake is one... More

Looking for a nice restaurant for a light lunch after wandering around the medieval town of Mdina, we turned down a short alley and discovered the Bacchus restaurant. As it was Christmas Day and the main dining room was booked out, we took seats in the wine cellar in the floor below. The decoration captured its two centuries of existence,... More

We came across this restaurant when visiting the Silent City of Mdina. The restaurant is full of character and being part of the old city the interior is very old. The first page of the menu provides a history to the building, which dates back to 10AD and the restaurant which was started over 30years ago There was plenty of... More

Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants I have experienced during visit to Malta. Ambience matches the high quality of the food. Recommend experiencing the rabbit, cooked to perfection, delicious! Would return to try the rest of the menu.

We practically stumbled upon this restaurant during our Mdina visit and I'm so thankful we did. The ambiance is amazing. It was a busy lunch service on New Years day and we had a small wait for a table of 5. Wine was lovely. Entree was Malta platter, which 3 adults and 1 child shared. Youngest child was offered nuggets... More

The atmosphere is one of a kind , the food is fresh and cooked to perfection and the menu is very interesting and has a large selection. Staff were very helpful and well informed. My only complaint is that we were not offered a complementary drink. But apart from that 5 star service.
