A group of 10 went for afternoon tea for a friends birthday. The food was nice, just nice and not to the standard of previous afternoon teas I've experienced. For a restaurant that advertises itself as a fine dining restaurant I would expect better. The service was lacking, drinks asked for not turning up, having to ask for our tea... More

I've been here quite a few times and I love the quirky decor and lovely prosecco....decided to take a trip for dinner and whilst the majority of the meal I ordered was good the beef Wellington had a really really chewy cut of beef in it....at £22.95 I would of expected a better cut of meat..... I will try it... More

Yesterday we went to Bacchus for Sunday lunch and were really disappointed after reading many of the reviews posted here. The roast lamb dinners were cold, the roast beef dinners were too tough to eat, the pan roasted cod was limp-skinned and completely tasteless and arrived 15 minutes after the other diners' plates. And every plate was complicated with conflicting... More

I have been to lots of afternoon teas locallly, around the country and in London. The afternoon tea I had recently was up there with the best. Firstly, Bacchus is like stepping back into the 1920s with its décor and music - shabby chic par excellence. The staff are very attentive and friendly. As for the afternoon tea.... absolutely delicious....some... More

I like this place.One of few restaurants in Southend where you can have a romantic sit down meal. Food is always good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Very nice atmosphere especially when the pianist is playing.

Strangely quiet as in not many diners, but why? Quality food, excellent serving staff and generous portions. Not for young children - too many fragile collectables out on display everywhere. If you enjoy your food well worth a visit.

Took my 86 year old mum for afternoon tea. We were very well looked after - loved the quirky decor and ambience. We weren't rushed at all, in spite of the wedding party due later in the afternoon. Had a really lovely time - happy to recommend to anyone looking for something offbeat and interesting rather than traditional and boring.

This place is great. It is so quirky and fun, there is so much to look at, you could never get bored! Great mis-match tea pots and cake stands, with a good selection of treats means that you can't really go wrong. The cakes were tasty, although there is one that stands out by far. The black forest cupcake! It... More
