The restaurant needs to spiff up their sign -- initally thought it was just another tourist spot -- then loved the cave/stone setting so six of us decided to just stop for a glass of wine. One look at the menu and we were hooked -- so many delectable offerings. We all ordered different items and then shared -- for... More

The service was lovely and the food was amazing. The actual place is beautiful. Not bad prices either. They make you feel very welcome. I had tomato soup to start (which was served in a bread roll) and the lazagna. Both were so tasty. My friend had the asparagus soup and the risotto. She said it was great too. Would... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here, excellent food and service. We chose salads with bruscetta and we drank excellent white wine recommended by the waitress. Great atmosphere.

We had a great time there and the food was excellent, especially the Aljotta local seafood soup, the best one I have had in Malta. The service in English was a little lacking, my out of the norm requests (because I wasn't feeling well) were brushed off or not heard.

The service was excellent, we never had to wait long to get our orders :) The food was really good! My girlfriend had the duck breast with orange sauce, it was so tender and juicy, and I had the pancetta and chicken lasagna with white sauce and it was excellent. It wasn't expensive either :) if you want a relaxing... More

I very rarely eat in what I would class as posh restaurant's but this is one of the best, the food is simply the best, the atmosphere is intimate, and if the sun terrace is open you are in for an experience you won't forget.

Food and service very good, but I felt cheated after receiving the bill, where the tax was added on to the prices shown on the menu. This is not common in Malta or Gozo and never happened to me in a restaurant on the islands. A shame to the management of Bacchus!

To experience the city by night, we stayed on in Mdina for the evening and departed about 9pm. We chose to eat at Bacchus because my wife had been there about twenty years before. Pleased we did, sort of. Although the waiting staff didn't provide that big enthusiastic welcome one might expect, they were courteous and helpful. Most of the... More
