Good setting, great food. I had asparagus soup to start followed by veal saltimbocca. Mt husband had fish soup and lamb which he said was extremely good. All well presented and delicious. No room for dessert unfortunately so just coffee. Had bottle house wine which was quite acceptable. Service excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend this restaurant.

17th Centuary magazine and armoury converted into a splendid restaurant and dining experience. Beautiful setting, attentive staff, excellent choices on menu, wonderful wines and a large 'secret' rooftop garden designed for private parties. Medina is full of history, as is the restaurant. Great ambiance. Highly recommended.

Called here intending to have lunch initially a drink. Shown to the secret garden area, eventually a waiter said if drink only over there ! pointing to either a dark corner or outside fringe area. Very offhand attitude verging on rude and one felt one was a nuisance to even be there !! Eventually served, meantime a couple came in... More

Wow!! What can I say, hot plates and desert forks for a start will always impress me as they are both so often missing. We started our meal in the secret garden which is beautiful. Our waiter was a charming man who was cheerful throughout the evening which added to the experience. The choice of wines is fantastic and they... More

Dined at Bacchus last weekend, my rib-eye was cooked to perfection and my wife's beef shin was just as great. This coupled with the welcoming service made our night out very pleasing

We arrived in Mdina on the hop on hop off tour bus and got there around noontime, just past lunchtime.. The day was hot and we wandered around the walled city of Mdina looking for a place to eat and stumbled into Bacchus.. It wasn't quite as we had expected the place to be and after some twists & turns... More

Beautiful setting inside & out. Food was rich & flavorful, first course portions were enough for a light meal, and menu is reasonably priced. Service was prompt (you have to ask for your check). I would definitely go again for a business lunch, dinner w/ friends, and plan to take my family when they visit.

A great find in Mdina! We had lunch on the terrace and the staff were very professional and prompt in showing us to our table and taking the drinks order. The menu is very good and priced accordingly to it's surroundings. The food is superb and very well served. I would not hesitate to recommend the Bacchus restaurant, it's great!
