Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My family and I went for lunch here for Father’s Day last weekend and I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more. It was great value for money, the food was amazing and the staff were so lovely and helpful. Well done!! ⭐️

The food was pretty mediocre. The fish was freshly cooked, but the root vegetables tasted as if twice-cooked and too peppery. Service was efficient and friendly. Awful and loud music was a continuous intrusion.

Excellent food and service. Have eaten there several times and the lamb dishes are highly recommended as they appear to be a specialty of the house. The lamb confit risotto was superb

We chose Bacchus after reading very good reviews on Trip Advisor. Our dining experience was not good at all. The food was very disappointing. My main course was salmon and it was bland. My partner had pasta which wasn't much better. The service was good...and staff were friendly but unfortunately we won't be returning to Bacchus.More

Visited Bacchus with my husband & my friends on Saturday & was thoroughly impressed. The staff were friendly & helpful & made the experience very enjoyable. Personally I had the Chef Recommendation dish of Confit of Lamb. The flavour was amazing & portions were extremely...generous. Bacchus wine list looked quite good & beers available were good too. We couldn’t squeeze dessert in but saw a few go past & wished we could! All in all, a great dining experience & will definitely be backMore

This restaurant is in a fantastic location, right beside the Shannon providing wonderful views from the tables. We were greeted by a lovely lady, we were seated promptly at a table by the window. Neither of us had visited before, we opted for lasagne and...spaghetti bolognese with garlic bread. Both meals would have benefitted from being tasted by the chef, the ingredients were of good quality however the flavour and sauces gave an overall impression of bland, tasteless or perhaps "safe" and unseasoned meals. There appeared to be a lack of vegetable content and some grainy aftertaste.More

Whilst travelling to Galway we stopped off in Athlone for a bite to eat. What a great restaurant, nicely busy on a Thursday night, we were warmly welcomed and given a nice window table. We very much enjoyed our meals: my husband had chefs lamb...kebabs, lightly seasoned, served with rice and a delicious sauce, I enjoyed perfectly cooked salmon, served with Mediterranean roasted vegetables and sautéed potatoes. A really nice restaurant with an enviable terrace to enjoy when warmer weather does finally grace us. Highly recommend a visit.More

Wow, what a find. We decided against Galway and gave Athlone a go. We were very impressed, service and food 10 /10. We had the bruschetta to start, fantastic! I had the pasta and my wife had the kebab for main, and we both shared...a cheesecake for the desert, everything was delicious. Place was packed, always a good sign. We will be back to Bacchus and can highly recommend it!!!More

Excellent experience from my point of view. We arrived early in the evening and were welcomed at the door and seated in a lovely position overlooking the river. Our dietary requirements were limited due to being on the Carnivore diet and the staff could not...do enough to accommodate us. We were offered options as alternatives to the bread, Tzatziki and chips that accompanied the meal and supplemented the dish with a meaty alternative. We had the T-bone steak and mixed grill platter and was just right (over ate tbh). I would thoroughly recommend following my experience and definitely will look to go back if I visit again. Thanks for a lovely experience.More

From the minute our group arrived we were shown exceptional customer service and hospitality from the team that were working at Bacchus. The waiting staff were informative and attentive without being overbearing. The food was delicious. We ordered mains and desserts. Mains were piping hot...with generous portion size. Tasty desserts and beautiful coffee to finish the experience. A gem of a spot in Athlone.More
