Pricey, but good quality

A little pricey, but very good food. My boyfriend had the duck breast, and it was fabulous! I have to say my cheese linguine was excellent as well. Nice atmosphere in their Secret Garden. It was a quiet Monday night when we went, and one of the waiters (a younger guy, I never got his name!) at the... read more

Great atmosphere. Fantastic fine dining service. Absolute exquisite food and great wine selection. Cosy and elegant and very professional high class service. From the moment you enter until you leave the restaurant.

Everything about this place is beautiful! The restaurant is like nothing else. Prices are more than reasonable. Absolutely loved it! I had mozzarella bufala and a lovely beef of filet. Also Loved the roasted onion. Worth a visit.

I had lunch at this restaurant and I seeing a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence at the entrance I thought had potential. SUCKS. Pasta overcooked and tasteless, after requesting parmesan I was brought to the table after half an hour by which time I had already finished my plate. The waiters pretend not to see you and not at all nice.... More

I knew this restaurant had good food, what I didn't know was how great it was! Starters were amazing (with good portions) and I still remember the tenderness of my pork belly. Simply delicious. Great, quiet atmosphere for couples/ small groups. It's price is on the high side but well worth the money.

Quite a good place to eat. Food is average, prices: main course 25-30€, starters 7-10€, pasta 9-12€. Service is poor, but staff is polite and smily.

This place left me speechless! The ambience is felt before you even enter the restaurant. It's breathtakingly beautiful and the staff are second to none when it comes to customer service. The food is exceptional! I will never forget my visit with my family on our last night in malta. Thank you Bacchus!

Food is excellent and the restaurant updates its menu very often, which makes diners spoilt for choice. Needs a bit of refurbishment, otherwise this restaurant is a favourite with me and my husband and we will definitely return.

Had lunch here with some friends recently and it was an excellent choice. It was also a stinking hot day and having the garden area with shade was just what was needed. Food was good. The Maltese mezze was a great starter and the other main course choices were enjoyed by all. The service was generally good and the staff... More
