My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at Bacchus after hearing about it for years (when we were still two poor Uni students)! With two years of marriage under our belts we felt it was a very good excuse to spoil ourselves and were curious to see if Bacchus would live up to all the hype and good reviews!

I'm happy to say that our expectations were certainly met in all areas. The restaurant design was very calm and comtemporary, and not too busy (we arrived at 7pm), the service was charming, friendly and professional (we feared it would all be a little too 'formal' for us but were wrong!). Our meals were all just beautiful.

The highlight for me and my sweet-tooth was the Creme Brulee, it was out of this world! We both loved our experience at Bacchus and will be back!

“Great local food in a beautiful dining room”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

Don't let the name Wine Bar fool you, this is a high end restaurant with a great chef who serves up the best of local produce. The staff are attentive and efficient.
If you want to have a quiet meal for two or just eat on your own in quiet surroundings this is the place.
Old world charm with high ceilings and a view back over the Octagon.
