As I asked the waiter, he said they were grilled first and then fried. Sure. I am blond as well, but not that blond. Then another waiter refilled the glass of white wine ( still... More

We were blocked from our first choice in stunning Mdina but this place looks amazing. it's just off a side street as you enter the Main Gate and the inside is amazing. Unfortunately, they took us up to the balcony which i swalled off by shrubbery and doesn't provide much of a view of anything. The Service was horrendous for... More

An experience not to be missed while on holiday in Malta. Exceptional cuisine, genuine service and the most extensive wine list, all make this restaurant fully deserving of its status and rating in Malta.

My family dined a la carte at Bacchus last week, and we were impressed by the impeccable service from the staff. Dishes for the separate courses were served to those at the table all at once, and there was the right amount of waiting time between one course and the next. What really impressed me was that the staff knew... More

The walled garden at Bacchus is stunning. And the service impeccable. But the food was a real let down. The lamb ragu pasta was over salted to the point of being inedible - and even the octopus linguine was mushy and salty. Maybe it was just bad luck - but they need to make sure they keep up their standards... More
