“Excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

A friend had suggested that we tried this restaurant when she heard that we were visiting Parga and we weren't disappointed. We ordered a mixed starter between the two of us but the waiter cautioned us to 'wait and see ' before we ordered our main course as he said that the starter was large. The dishes in the starter were lovely but a little salty ( for my taste) Food and our money could have easily been wasted had we ordered a main course as the starter was huge and a main course wasn't needed. The waiters were friendly and cheerful and the ' greeter' did a difficult job with humour and skill.

“ooooopppppaaaaa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

So Bacchos is right on the most touristy promenadey front of Parga and we would normally avoid somewhere with a 'greeter' at the door but something made us try Bacchos on our first night last week and we LOVED it!
We were intending to have a quiet Sunday night after the day's travelling but settled in to the atmosphere at Bacchos and had a wonderful crazy late old night of drinking, eating and dancing with a super friendly mixture of Greek and Dutch bunch of customers (it was Greek Easter). The food was so tasty and huge portions, the house wine very drinkable. The staff are fantastic, really efficient and they do genuinely seem to enjoy working as a team and having a laugh with the diners. We had a massive meal (complimentary fruit, wine, ouzo!) and loads of drink for about 40 euros. Brilliant value and great fun!
We ended up going back for lunch (with tired feet from the dancing) for more squid and a little beer and received a lovely welcome!
Anyway, we couldn't resist a couple more dinners there, despite only being in Parga a week (shame) and although the subsequent nights weren't so crazy, the atmosphere was buzzing and the food standard consistently high. We met up with several returning customers and recommended the place to others who all reported back favourably.
The other reviews give a fair impression of the place and it's not everyone's cup of tea. If you want a quiet, candlelit meal for two then perhaps Bacchos wouldn't suit. It's good value, traditional cooking, not fine dining. People were smoking with their food although it didn't cause us any issues. We were lucky to enjoy four fantastic meals. Loved the feel good atmosphere and the waiters who seemed to have everyone grinning.
Oh, great view of the harbour too and free entertainment from the aforementioned 'greeter'. OK so he wears a pink (or baby blue) cashmere jumper over his shoulders and has a pony tail and told me he was 'born for this job', but he didn't seem pushy to me really; actually quite funny and proud to be part of the Bacchos experience.
We've got some great memories of the place and it's the first meal I can rate as EXCELLENT for every rating! Hope we get back there soon!

“Amazing service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Ate at this restaurant when in Parga 6 years ago and were happy to find same family owned and ran it. Ate here many evenings during our two week holiday. Fast service but no hurry to get you to leave, despite a queue of people waiting across at the sea wall for tables. However, they bring you a free drink to enjoy while you wait!

“Friendly, fun eating experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Restaurant Bacchos is well situated in the town so convenient to reach. The staff are all efficient and friendly and the welcome always warm and enthusiastic. Very popular with tourists, there is always a queue to be seated during the high season, in fact for most of the season and you are provided with a complimentary drink whilst waiting. There is an extensive menu and the food is good and varied and reasonably priced, the portions are very generous so be prepared to eat heartily! Despite being so busy, the staff work extremely hard and always pay attention to detail, nothing is too much trouble.
