We have frequented this restaurant many times over the years and have always enjoyed the friendly service and the food, which we find excellent. We have missed the opportunity to eat here as the lockdown restrictions have caused closure over the past six months and...we were delighted to find that the latest relaxation in regulations has allowed re-opening. We enjoyed our meal just as much as ever we had in the past and it was great to meet the waiters again. We will undoubtedly be back again soon.More

Soooo…. Where do I start? Maybe with the words … avoid, terrible and never frequent this establishment. Let me start at the beginning. It was day 3 in Paphos and we decided to venture into the harbour area for an early dinner. Our hotel arranged...for us to get a private taxi as there were 7 of us and the lady driver suggested before we made it to the harbour area a “really fabulous restaurant” which was called Bacchus. On arrival, the restaurant looked promising, it was on the main street/strip; (which was not the harbour view we wanted) but we went with it and decided to give it a try. The staff were accommodating on arrival and due to Covid19 and the newly introduced rules of how many people could sit at a table, the restaurant was kind enough to give us 2 tables next to each other. Then it all went wrong…… Please refer to my previous reviews. I have contributed my thoughts to trip advisor for over 10 years. I am only honest, I don’t often post bad reviews, as I want, especially in the current Covid 19 climate for restaurants and the hospitality industry to flourish. Unfortunately, the service, staff and quality of the food was totally unexeceptable. The menu was vast and varied ; which often worries me, from traditional Cypriot/Greek dishes to Indian, (we even ordered the garlic chilli Indian inspired prawns as one of our many starters). How can a restaurant refrigerate and store so many ingredients to be able to prepare the dishes they advertise as fresh? Also, strangely, the menu had symbols next to dishes saying if they are freshly cooked or prepared from frozen. Who would ever go for a frozen option? It is good they gave you the choice though????? We ordered a selection of starters, which were at best mediocre but as we were on holiday, we laughed through it and hoped the main courses would be better. We were wrong. I have never ever been served food so terrible. Not only had I been served the most unappetizing food but so had my guests. I am not usually a “complainer” but this whole food debarcle was like something out of a carry on movie….. dish after dish came out, some looked, ok, but they were mostly slimey and dry (which is a total oxymoron!) and looked like they had been microwaved and slopped on a plate. When my guests explained this to the front of house waiter and returned the food, we were then represented with the food, the same food we had returned with a message from the chef saying he had tested it and he thought it was acceptable. We requested the chefs’ presence to eat this food in front of us, but he politely declined. The m’aitre de then came out, shouting and waving his finger in my female friends face shouting that we should not complain! He is lucky we are all very restrained and had our children there and we are respectful to fellow diners around us as the men at our table were not impressed by his vigorous and loud reaction. The restaurant offered us a 20% discount but we still gave a tip as it was not the waiting staffs’ fault and they deserve to be rewarded for the service they provide. To summerise: AVOID AT ALL COSTS! We did go to some fabulous restaurants during our holiday: Cavallinis, Theos in the harbour. Gold Sakura opposite the Annablle hotel. A taverna I think called tskini taverna... which is very hot if you eat there at height of the sun being out but fab to watch the sunset. And if you have kids . Fat Mummas… but Stavoros Flatterly has issues of grandeur 😊 If he’s performing…….More

Situated in the Paphos harbour with excellent views, we went for dinner during our holiday and was definitely one of our favourite restaurants that we went to! Victor and the rest of the staff were fantastic. They work so hard and are really engaging. Food...was gorgeous with a complete mix of things on the menu to suit every taste. We liked it so much that we visited a second time towards the end of our trip. We’re due back in June for our wedding so will definitely be organising a night out to Bacchus!More

Have had a few lunches at Bacchus over the years...never disappoints. The waiters are pleasant and attentive, usually remembering previous choices with great accuracy! Stoyan was particularly good, greeting us like old friends. The food is excellent, my particular favourite is prawn Caesar salad, just...the best I have tasted anywhere.More

When we got there for dinner, it was almost empty, but filled up all the tables by the time we left, so clearly a well-liked place. Looked nice as well, We ordered a couple of starters between us instead of a meal and while they...were all absolutely fine, none of it was something we would rush to go and eat again. Price range for the starters was on par with the rest of the town. Service was mostly fine and Covid rules adhered, though, our assistant insisted on switching to Russian at any given moment as one of us stated that they can understand Russian (but is not comfortable speaking), though the other one was English only. I can only guess he felt more comfortable with Russian than English. Didn't ruin the experience, but certainly felt odd.More

So walking past this place is busy, kinda after eating unsure why. So the menu is large and the staff are good So we ordered the drinks, mine arrived and my wife's didn't after 5mins I questioned this to be answered back are you sure...you ordered a drink for her. Kinda didn't understand this 2 people sitting 1 drink arrived. So I had the curry pizza and my wife had the chicken. So the pizza looks amazing. This is ment to have a curry base chicken etc. Well was kinda missing the curry base and flavour. My wife's chicken parmigiana on the chicken side of the menu and not the pasta. We'll was basically a chicken breast with tomato pasta dumped on top. Deffently not the meals we where expecting. ShameMore
