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.

after a beautiful walk around the Silent City, this is an ideal place to stop and compare photos and relax. the food was divine, I had the snails to start and the Beef shin as a main, the portions were so generous I almost couldn't finish. My partner had the pork starter and it was a meal in itself. Local wines are a bit hit and miss but we tried them wherever we ate, this was no exception, slightly weak flavoured Shiraz was sampled here but that's hardly the restaurants fault. the setting is fantastic, photogenic in itself, great surroundings for a romantic meal.

The restaurant was the only opened one at 3pm when we went to Mdina. We had a pork belly dish (the one with rice on the second photo) and snails as starters. And the pork dish was sooooooo good, it's defo their must try dish) snail dish was good too! I tried rabbit leg for the first time at this restaurant, plating and complimentary vegetables were really good. However I find the rabbit leg meat a bit dry.

Also they lost one star because they need further employee training. Since the glasses were slightly dirty with stains and the waiter gave me a dessert fork instead of a mains fork after my starters which was a bit weird. Other than that, it was a really good lunch!

Had a late visit to Mdina with many of the restaurants on the way closed. Luckily we ended up in Bacchus and it was definitely didn’t disappoint! For starters the duck salad was perfect with a perfect balance of flavours and the duck cooked nice and crispy. As for main the rabbit leg was splendid, juicy as well as full of flavour. Overall it was one of the best restaurants we visited whilst in Malta!

We went by chance on a Saturday evening. Parking in Mdina a bit difficult. Wasn't helped by a wedding for 400 taking place same night. Meal itself was fabulous. Not fast service but lovely and relaxed. Well worth a visit for a special meal. The duck and sherry salad was fabulous
