Fab evening

Birthday meal for our son - four of us and the food was fantastic - our waiter was an absolute gem so friendly and fun and it made the whole evening a delight- the food was cooked to perfection and the bill was very reasonable - full marks Bacchus!

This restaurant might seem like a revelation to somebody who just arrived in Southend and after a quick overview of local restaurants is desperate to eat anything but fish&chips or a fast food. So you come across this quirky, alternative-looking place and you just have to give it a try. Somebody must have put a lot of effort in making... More

Booked this for a rare date night with my husband mid week. It's like a treasure trove in there! Really unique inside, so nice to eat somewhere in Southend that isn't your bog standard chain! Big inside yet still feels nice and intimate. Service was great and not intrusive. Wine lovely and all courses delish. I do think some of... More

What a rip off. Website stated £15.99 but we were charged £16.99. When challenged they said the price we saw was on their first site and they couldn't get rid of it. I think they should have let us pay the cheaper price as a good will gesture. The decor made me feel I was eating in a junk shop.... More

I've been to Bacchus on 3 occasions and it's been excellent every time. The decor is fantastic, very quirky but homely at the same time. Service was very good and friendly, though it was a quiet Monday so they weren't exactly stretched! There's decent choice on the menu with some interesting options. The scallop starters are both amazing, and the... More

Highly recommend this place if you are looking for something a little bit special. Came across this place purely by chance was really surprised with how good it was . The staff were amazing, very friendly and very attentive. The food was great, a interesting menu with plenty of choice and good selection of cocktails and wines......would definitely go again

Visited Bacchus on Sunday for afternoon tea. Lovely décor. Very quirky. But apart from that NOT good. Don't bother looking at the menu, you don't get what it says. We had processed chicken and tomato, cheddar cheese branston pickle and tomato, salmon and tomato and egg sandwiches. If you like tomatoes you are ok. No selection of teas were offered.... More

I was SO hoping to write a positive review of my birthday meal at Bacchus. I’ve been many times for cocktails and always enjoyed it. The interior is lovely and the staff are great and so I booked a table for my 45th. I was expecting a great meal but, for me, the dining experience was an enormous let down.... More
