“Not for veggies”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Fantastic experience, rustic France at it's best. Not sure exactly what we were eating all the time but that is part of the pleasure.

“An authentic French country restaurant.”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Loved every moment of this night. It was entertaining to watch French people; their love of food and friends. It is a meat lovers paradise and the best pate I have ever eaten. Thank you Eric - fond memories.

“Great atmosphere and excellent food”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

La Taverne a Bacchus is about excellent meat in a great atmosphere. For dinner we had a lovely fresh gazpacho followed by a mixed charcuterie plate, which included a mixture of excellent cured and air dried meats, followed by sublimely tender and flavoursome milk fed pork which just fell apart, accompanied by simply cooked potatoes. Certainly a hearty meal but not a ridiculously large quantity of food as some reviews have suggested.
Much of the food is cooked on the large open fire which is a major feature of the restaurant. Many happy locals and the French speaking Australian galah (parrot) in a large cage added to the atmosphere.

La Taverne a Bacchus is a rustic Corsican style eating place with good honest wines and some of the best prepared meats of that style you are ever likely experience. As we got up to leave the table, we were told to sit down again while the proprietor brought us a small digestif to complete the meal. The final plus about the restaurant was the small size of the bill.

“Delicious unpretensious home-style cooking”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Welcoming staff, atmospheric decor and good mix of customers - everyone obviously having a good time and enjoying the food.

Service was excellent - sufficient time between each course, all of which need to be savoured!

Will definitely return in the near future.
