Of all the great plates you'll find at Bacchus Restaurant in the Wedgewood Hotel, the one on the wall tells the story best. It's the plate inscribed with the Four Diamond Award from the CAA/AAA. It is a perfect companion to the Wedgewood's own Four Diamond rating, an honour indicating that this rooms' service is second to none.
Walk through the Hornby Street entrance, and Bacchus' attention to detail is immediately apparent. You are instantly surrounded by luxury, with richly upholstered furniture, warm, dark wood, and light fixtures imported from Venice personally by owner Eleni Skalbania. A large canvas depicting Bacchus himself, Greek god of wine and revelry, presides over the room.
Lee Parsons presides over the food as Executive Chef. With food like this, you would naturally expect an outstanding wine list, and Bacchus does not disappoint. From the West Coast to France, Italy, South Africa and Australia, Bacchus takes xenophiles on a tour of the world's finest vineyards.
One recent visitor wrote a thank you note, referring to the servers as "mind readers - astounding!". Actually, its just par for the course at Bacchus, a diamond in the heart of Vancouver's Wedgewood Hotel.
