Diners love the "quiet, romantic ambience" with "very good service" and "great food"..."Definitely worth a visit!"

Almost as much of an institution as the Silent City itself, of which it occupies an impressive six percent footprint, Bacchus Restaurant Mdina has stood the test of time. Housed in a marvellous former gunpowder chamber, its medieval walls are steeped in history. Proudly maintaining its original features, the lush greenery of plants set against the backdrop of the weathered brick walls lead you down a private pat way. Upon entering, the perfumed air is perfectly in sync with the wrought iron gates, mood lighting, i pressive structural flower displays and golden damask covered chairs, which set the tone for occasion fine dining. Vladimir, the accomplished maître d’, leads his crew of liveried waiters in this elegant ambience.

An amuse bouche of homemade tomato soup served with an olive and sundried tomato tart is d lightfully tasty. The comprehensive menu combines elements of classical dishes, such as the salty salti bocca, with twists of local elements, such as the carpaccio of octopus and snails in mille feuilles. Every morsel of gragnano spaghetti with baby crayfish served in its own bisque, presented with imaginative flair, is delicious. Knives are optional for the tender slow roasted lamb and braised local beef shin. Ask your server to recommend a dessert – the baked cheesecake with strawberry sorbet is a fitting end to a most memorable meal. An extensive wine list comprising award winning local vintages complements this culinary experience.
