We went two times to Bacco during our week in Malta. The first time I ordered some dumplings which were excellent, and served with a delicious sauce, and some chicken sticks called « Bangkok », they were a little bit chewy but good though. We already noticed that the service was very slow and that we had to ask to get the menu, the check,... A few days later, we went to back and I ordered again the same dumplings, still excellent. But this time the service was awful, after we received our food, we waited around 30 minutes before they cleared the table, even though three waiters were just walking around the tables and talking between them... The waiter didn’t even ask us if we wanted something else so I had to ask to get the menu and he gave me the wrong menu so I finally asked him to pay to get my dessert in another place. A guy also complained about this slow service....

Bacco Sticks & Sum is a normal bar but the drinks prices are expensive if you don't manage to make the happy hour. Also one of the cocktails that I had I don't think contained the amount of alcohol it should have. This is isn't too bad of a place its just there are better options very close in Paceville.

Amazing food! Amazing cocktails! Amazing staff!

All round the food was of great quality! The cocktails were very tasty and with happy hour from 5pm-8pm everyday, what is not to like!
The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating, my friend had a nut and fish allergy and the wait staff personally went into the kitchen to make sure her order contained non of the above.

Great place to eat!

Went there for sunday cocktails during happy hour. Atmosphere was ok however disappointed with the cocktails. Felt ripped off since we couldn’t even taste any alcohol in them.

Had 3 types of dim sum, 2 great, 1 not to our taste ( I do like to try things, might not like them), and a skewer platter, great value for food and drinks, good service. 1 thing that was annoying was the amount of flies, though this is a Malta problem, it seemed like there were many more than usual at this place. I have to add it was clean, and the flies were well behaved (didn’t go on the food) just annoying, please do some thing such as insect traps...
