The place is nice but really expensive. The food no so good. I would recommend it for dinner because it is beautiful at night. Fish is a great option, the risottos are not so good. It is a beautiful place but be careful about prices.......

I will continue to view Bacchus as a highlight of my trips to San Jose as it never disappoints. The service is exceptional - attentive, but non obtrusive and the food quality is excellent. Extensive wine list too!

One of the best dinners I have had. Service, atmosphere and cuisine was excellent. I had the Ossobuco and it was so tender. For an appetizer, the tuna tartar was delicious. Great wine selection as well. You must visit!

The truffled mushroom risotto is simply perfect. The menu offers a wide arrange of plates. I have come to Bacchus many times and have never been disappointed. The quality of food and service is excellent... More

Home made pasta. Meat eater husband had vegetarian spaghetti dish and loved it. Best lasagna of my life! Yes, I've been to great restaurants in Italy that wished they had food this good! Fine dining yet cozy. Food reasonably priced. Wine a little pricey but a decent wine list. We sat outside on the terrace and weren't sure we made... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Costa Rica, service outstanding! Good wine selection, with Spanish, Chilean and Argentinean wineries. My favorite grilled octopus with angel hair pasta, in general the meat is great, shrimps are super. Best if you can get a table outside.

Bacchus is an awesome please, if you can get a seat/table outside. The inside is as cold as a meat locker, unless you ask them to wind down the AC. The menu, as with so many places in CR has changed, but for the worst. They have removed some favorites such as the veal starter which was killer, BRING IT... More
