About Vivat Bacchus Farringdon

SquareMeal Review

Bronze Award

“Consistently good” is one regular’s verdict on this huge venue devoted to South African-accented wine and food (in that order). After more than a decade in business, Vivat Bacchus has entered a new phase, with the basement dining room now converted into a private space and more emphasis on the posh old-school wine bar. This animated arena tells two stories: the ‘walk-in' cheese room and vast Champagne fridge speak of flush epicurean punters, while blackboard promotions suggest workaday business dates. Open sandwiches and kangaroo burgers are always popular, but readers have also praised the healthy ‘five a day’ salads and “fantastic” BBQ short-rib with Coca Cola glaze, blossom honey, star anise, stem ginger and Asian slaw; after that, perhaps try mango pannacotta with vanilla and passion fruit. Bacchus himself would no doubt be impressed by VB's cellars holding over 18,000 bottles.

Really delicious food- had a smoked duck and chicory salad with awesome blue cheese. they aren't the most flexible staff but friendly enough. Good for a lunchtime meeting as although quiet, you aren't easily overheard from other tables.

Just popped in for a drink, the venue was very busy, though probably to do with it was the last Friday of January. We just had a few drinks and the pitta and hummus is the best - would recommend whilst having a drink or two. Also they do very good cheeseboards - a little pricey though, but you get to have a sneak in the cheese room before choosing. Good selection of South African wines. they do have music in the evenings. Else overall good and a good place to go for a drink and catch-up in the city.

Returned to Vivat Bacchus having been away for a weekend and didn't want to cook! As ever, Vivat is consistently good for food and service with great wine. Having been away we opted for the healthy 5 a day salad and asparagus and spinach soup. Both were excellent. This was followed by a sirloin and the chicken with Greek salad. Again, both were great. We'll be back...
