Fantastic menu, great suggestions of specials, superbly presented, excellent service. Great wine....... Great value for money compared to some of the tourist traps in Oyster Pond, better executed. Definitely worth a visit if you like fine food.

No matter where you are in SXM, Bacchus is worth the trip for lunch and fine wines! If you are expecting a burger and sandwhich place, then this is not for you. If you are open to experimenting with food and wine pairings, then this is a must! It is a little difficult to find, but once you have been... More

We stopped by Bacchus for the first time on our way to our condo in Orient Beach. It is a little tricky to find, even once you're in the Hope Estates shopping village. Go to the second row behind Simply Market. They have an extensive and somewhat expensive selection of wines, but the French wines are still less than we... More

Unique for us, slightly above average otherwise. Let me explain... Bacchus is a wine cellar, with a small restaurant. Most of their dishes are seafood, I don't drink wine, and I don't eat seafood. Our trip to Bacchus was primarily for my girlfriend, and not me, obviously. You can find Bacchus tucked away in the back corner of the Hope... More

Truffles, truffles, and more truffles! So what would you think of paying more for lunch than a good dinner? If you're dining at Bacchus you'd think it was worth it. Top notch French cuisine combined with Isabella's perfect wine pairings make for a gastronomic experience you won't soon forget.

Bacchus is the spot for a fine dining luncheon in St. Martin. It's a little out of the way set in an industrial park outside of Grand Case where the owner is a wine distributor and operates a lunch-only restaurant and gourmet food & wine shop from the premises of his warehouse. We went today to avoid the St. Valentine's... More

This is an unusual location for lunch...in a wine warehouse tucked in an industrial complex. Once you walk through the door, you are transported to something completely different. An elegant, fine dining restaurant amidst bottles of wine and cases of delicacies. The food here is exceptional, the wine list extensive and service superb. If you have a chance to visit,... More

If you can locate Bacchus, you will be richly rewarded. It is tucked into what is akin to a industrial strip mall, and the signage is not helpful. But be patient - the find is worth the journey. The wine list is extensive, the food is fantastic and our waitress was delightful. The setting is wooden tables and hard chairs... More

This is truly one of our favorite restaurants on St Martin. Only open for lunch, it it worth the trek to Grand Case. We love to spend long food and wine filled lunches here with friends. Amazing food and amazing atmosphere. Only the French can get away with putting a world class restaurant in a wine warehouse tucked inside an... More
