Came across this wee find by accident, and we are so glad we did. Very friendly and the food was delicious, best chilli nachos iv ever had, wasn't your usual tortillas, but home made ones, complements to the chef on these. Would definitely visit again

We came here for dinner using a Groupon deal and I was pleasantly surprised. Great choice of food and what we had was delicious (pate, chicken wings, chilli bowl and pasta with creamy garlic mushroom). The atmosphere was lovely and I will definitely go back. The staff were also fantastic especially the girl who was serving us, I didn't get... More

Amazed by the size of the dishes both, starters and mains were amazing. Food was tasty and great value. Went with the itison 2 course and drink deal, excellent value, great food options. It is quite plain inside and bit cold sitting near doorway, but is pleasant and food is excellent.

The staff were incredibly friendly and the girl serving was just terrific, food was delicious and it was just a great evening all round, would... More

Just been there for a late lunch with close family. Haven't been before - but definitely will be going back. Food was really very good and competitively priced - and the service was brilliant! They could not do enough for us. The music was good, loud enough to enjoy but not too loud to spoil conversation. The menu choice was... More

That's what they say !! Heading towards Bacchus from the nearby George Square you can't help but be disappointed by its location. Surrounded by flash buildings, some of Glasgow's finest. Bacchus looks sad and neglected. So you can imagine how surprised Terry and I were with this place once we stepped inside. Friendly, helpful attentive staff and really, really amazing... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon with my wife and we were not disappointed. The food service and atmosphere were excellent and the acoustic session went down a treat. Will definitely be back. Get the flour tortilla nachos to start, they're brilliant.
