“A Little Treasure - tucked away in fabulous Val Verde!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stay in Val Verde every year and the area is hugely enhanced by Bacchus Bistro. Marco's presence, plus his superb staff, make this a really superb venue. We recently visited the bistro 5 times during our holiday. The service is stunning and Marta is a gem! We love her!!! We are looking forward to returning next year or sooner if we can manage it. Whether you pop in for drinks, tapas or a full meal, you will not be disappointed. This is a really superb venue and not to be missed. We wish them all good luck.

“Excellent new reastaurent”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Had a meal here last night , excellent food and very good prices,nice relaxing ambiance, friendly and efficient staff. They do tapas in the afternoon, menu looks interesting.A great find and I expect it to do very well with the chefs style of cooking, which leads to very tasty food .They do not have a huge menu which always makes me nervous, one tends to get either microwaved or partly prepared meals, food here is cooked as it is ordered .Would definitely recommend Bahhus and looking forward to going back soon.

Dear einstein57,

Thank you very much for the positive review!! We are very happy that you enjoyed our dishes. The outside decor is brand new and we were hoping to create an atmosphere where guests could relax, feel at home and enjoy some good food with good wine. Our Head Chef Felix and assistant chef Delfin take great pride in their work and don't let anything come out of their kitchen unless it has exceeded their expectations. In regards to the menu, it is small but we believe in doing a few dishes exceptionally well then doing a lot of dishes averagely. For the summer we are holding barbeque style buffets on Friday evenings. More information can be found on our Facebook page. Again thank you very much for taking time out of your day to review and write about our restaurant! Happy travels and we hope to see you back soon!!

“Tucked away, small menu, amazing food!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

My wife and I chose this restaurant off of the back of the positive reviews on trip advisor for our last meal of our holiday and it was amazing.

The menu is very small (but changes regularly according to the waitress) and the food was fantastic. The service was excellent and it was one of the cheapest meals we had as you're not paying the hugely inflated prices in Vale do Lobo/Villamoura for a sea-side view.

“A winner all-round”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Marco has created and runs a superb bistro tucked away in Vale Verdi. Stylish decor, a limited but classy menu, a chef who really knows how to cook and present food and a reasonably priced wine list, including a Sancerre to die for. The beef carpachio was the best we've eaten for ages and the rib-eye steak and grilled garlic prawns were very good. What makes this place a 5 star though is Marco himself. He is so enthusiastic, makes you feel welcome, serves superbly well, at just the right pace and not only thanks you when you leave (as many do), but really makes you feel that you are a valued customer. Great stuff Marco and very well done.

Thank you very much for your positive review and support! Marco takes great pride in only offering the very freshest quality of foods and the very best selection of wines to his guests. Marco also understands on what it actually means to feel like family. You honestly feel like you have been coming to the Bacchus Bistro for ages. For this summer (2013) we are now offering our guests a Mediterranean theme experience! New changes have been made to the decor as well as to the menu. If you are in the Algarve any time soon stop by and experience a little bit of the Mediterranean.

“One of the best in Algarve”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I have been visiting the Algarve for 25 years now. Particularly within the Vilamoura and Quita do Lago areas.
This restaurant is definetely one of the best (and quite surely the best value for money) in the area.
Flawless food (both fish and meat dishes), the best fish soup we´ve ever had and great service. We even had a refill of soup for free just by letting know about its quality.

You can tell the Bistro has been thought out with care and knowledge. The chef is extremelly competent and the host has a genuine taste and deep knowledge about both the food and the wine to go along with it.
Bacchus is from now on my first choice for dinner in Quinta do Lago.

Many thanks to Marco Afonso for the service provided to my mother and I, that will surely come back soon.
