Visited for dinner during a day trip into Mdina. The Bacchus Restaurant is in a really attractive building and the feel is cosy. Food was lovely but took quite a while to come out seeing as it wasn't busy at the time. Service was good.

Baccus is a really nice restaurant in the valves of the old city wall. We got excellent food, but the service did neither match expectations nor the price. After our complaint they stepped up but waiting time for the main course keeps the grade low....More
