Beautiful quiet walled garden in a building going back centuries. Food was very nice and service good. Not too expensive considering the quality.

We popped in just for a glass of wine, and the waiter showed us up to the secret garden terrace. It was a great surprise, like an oasis in the old city. On our way to the terrace we passed through the rest of the restaurant an was amazed about how large it was. If we have had more time... More

We stumbled across this restaurant after walking from the cathedral. We were welcomed by a friendly greeter who showed us to the secret garden terrace. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and very quirky. The secret garden was breathtaking and provided a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I ordered the rabbit dish which was lovely and tender the best I have... More

We had a nice diner, but nothing special. A bit on the expensive side compared to some of the other locations.

Only stopped by for a drink but, after looking at the menu ordered a fish soup, snails, beef carpaccio and duck salad. Could have pointed at anything on the menu blindfold and would have been happy. Lovely, historic setting and outdoor terrace. Very reasonably priced considering the location, setting and quality of both food and service.

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. Food... More

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
