Excellent food and atmosphere in a supreme location. Last minute decision to go here but totally worth it. The service was very friendly and attentive. A perfect way to finish your Mdina tour!

Unfortunately the restaurant wasnt actually open but we were invited to stay for coffee. The waitress told us to go upstairs which led into a massive wedding banquet hall which was being prepared for a wedding and looked stunning in gold and yellow. We went through to the beautiful gardens and had a coffee and free wifi. If you have... More

Bacchus is a fabulous restaurant in the most beautiful setting, the food and service are exceptional. We went on the 10/10/16 and we were seated in the outside garden which was so pretty and initially we were so impressed but then the smoking started and what started out as a lovely evening was totally ruined, as it was like we...

I should have asked the man from Sardinia his name... but he was spectacular! Yes the food was great, the other staff were 100%, we were sitting next to a wall built in 900AD, under a stone arched ceiling... but it was the style, professionalism an humour of the waiter that made the night.

We were invisted to a wedding reception at Bacchus last week and as we arrived thought it looked like a wonderful venue. However in order to get to the room where it was being held we had to walk through the restaurant and then go via marble slippery stairs that had no handrail. As I was wearing heels I had... More

Bacchus Restaurant is situated in the first, left, side street as you enter the arched doorway of Mdina , the old Capital of Malta. The entrance to this 'Jewel' is indicated by a sign on the main road as it cannot be seen from the main road. The setting is excellent, with ground level dinning area and upstairs, which forms...

I took my parents,who were visiting from abroad, to a little sight-seeing tour of Mdina, and thought it would be nice to round the trip off with a nice drink at a scenic location. Although Ive heard of Bacchus before, Ive personally never been there before, and to be quite honest, just stumbled upon it because of the sign on... More

The restaurant has an amazing setting and can accommodate several types of events. The food is quite average and below expectations when you compare to the setting

I agree totally with the previous review regarding the injury to a guest and that there urgently needs to be thought given to making the stairs safer. I felt uneasy on them too as they are wide, encouraging lots of people using them at the same time but with no support. It was a great pity that the evening ended... More

We arrived in Madina with a sightseeing tour and were wondering about for a while, walked in because we were hungry. Wonderful place with atmosphere and we were not disappointed with the food either. We had a Maltese platter for starters flushed down with a glass of house white, a very decent dry white to clense the palate between the... More

Bacchus’s Chefs and Serving Staff make no bones about the fact that they consider the input of customers as the strongest motivation for them to give their customers the kind of experience they would enjoy. Let us know - directly. And we'll make sure your experience here is what you want.
