We asked if we could sit on a table in the sun, bearing in mind there were only 4 people in the restaurant and was told no they were setting the tables for the evening. We had to wait far too long for drinks so didn't go back. Staff were not particularly friendly.

The food is pretty good, although I've had better elsewhere for the same price. That said, I tried the snails as starters (my first time), and it was quite good. The environment is really nice and the staff was friendly enough. I was actually surprised to find out that the dining area is made up of several different sections; an... More

The evening exceeded all my expectations. The food was impressively delicious and the service personal and impeccable throughout and the ambience created was definitely memorable. The only issue was that other tables where served bruschetta and we weren't. Overall the food was excellent, atmosphere was great and will definitely go there again in the near future.

We popped into this restaurant which is deceptively large. We made out way through to a lovely rooftop garden. The waiter was attentive and helpful with our selection of wine. The pasta dishes we selected, one a lasagne, the other octopus were lovely and filling as a main course. Would eat here again

Excellent - and Mdina was possibly the highlight of our trip to Malta, so I would book a table at this hidden gem before you trip!

We were on a short trip to Mdina and our first stop was lunch. We turned a corner and found this lovely restaurant with a cool shaded garden, very peaceful. The staff were very friendly and we had just the light lunch we were hoping for. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to other visitors.

Last night we had a wonderful meal at the Bacchus restaurant in Mdina, Malta. We sat in their secret garden, the restaurant is a bit like a tardis in that is looks small but when you get inside it seems to go on for ever! The staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful, service over all was excellent, I didn't... More

The service was absolutely flawless, served with a smile and fine manners. Everything we ordered was divine from the starters down to the deserts and was certainly worth every cent. Definitely recommend Bacchus as a fine dining restaurant with a wonderful romantic ambiance.
