We visited the ancient city of Mdina and stumbled upon Bacchus just off a little street near the city walls. Descending down the stairs into a cool but really empty restaurant we wondered why it was so quiet and were about to leave when a member of staff took us up to the roof garden and we ordered lunch.

We've dined here before on many occasions and love the outdoor dinning experience this place offers. It was unfortunate and unusual that the weather was not good enough to eat al fresco on our most recent visit. The table inside was nicely tucked away in a quiet corner. Our service staff were good and efficient and our food arrived very... More

We had a day trip to Mosta and Mdina, and popped into Bacchus just before noon just for a drink. It was busy, and we liked the look of the menu, so after wandering around the city, we decided to eat. It was 3pm, but it was really busy. There is a cool bar/eating area down stairs but what they... More

The four in our group had a very nice dinner in the lovely "secret garden" area of the Bacchus restaurant. The restaurant is set in a historic area of town with beautiful views of the country at night. On the night we were there everyone appeared to be seated in this secret garden section of the restaurant, although the inside... More

The place greets you into an old barn where knights horse used to be kept. Foreigners are amazed on the structure and on how the place is decorated. The place starts off all in a good atmosphere. Drinks are available at a reasonable price. Food also well priced but the specialties of the day are on the high side. Our... More

Arrogant and rude staff. I was the only one waiting at the door yet two waiters seemingly had no time to acknowledge or serve me. I left, and quite condescendingly the waiter asked me to shut the door behind me! Would avoid purely on principle.
