Bacchus Bistro is a winery restaurant in South Langley. The winery, Chaberton, has been open for 25 years. The winery itself has been voted as best winery by the community of Langley.
The grounds are sprawling at over 50 acres.
Here are some beautiful white grapes. I did not catch what variety they were.
It was such a beautiful evening. The sky was captivating.
There is a little aquarium built just outside the entrance of the bistro. These gold fish were so cute.
The views from our table on their patio were lovely. I enjoyed watching the ever changing scenery over the rows of grapes.
His & her drinks. My husband chose a locally made lager, by Dead Frog in Aldergrove. My favourite wine by Chaberton is their Reserve Bacchus. I always order it if I see it on a wine list at a restaurant so I had to get it at the source. It’s a refreshing wine. Its not too dry or too sweet. I find it very balanced and everything I want in a white wine.
Their sangria is delicious. It was very fruity and not strong at all. It had the right amount of citrus. Its one of the best sangrias I have had in a while.
The bread deserved its own picture. Its locally made from Fieldstone Artisan Breads in South Surrey. It was so fresh and pillowy.
The French Onion soup was topped with so much amazing, bubbly cheese. The soup had a nice depth of flavours.
Their Caesar salad had house made dressing on baby Romaine leaves. I appreciated that they used the tender part of the lettuce in a salad if I have to cut it myself. The dressing was garlicky but not overpowering. The fresh pepper on top was just the right amount of spice.
We both ordered the steak. It was large and I thought I wouldn’t finish mine…but I did. The green peppercorn sauce was a nice touch. The steak had a great crust on it. I am definitely a fan of steak that has been cooked in a pan versus on a grill. The green beans still had their crunch and were cooked with beautiful pieces of bacon.
The scalloped potatoes were cooked to perfection. The sauce was creamy and cheesy. They tasted very homemade. I love when a restaurant is able to achieve that homey flavour.
We finished with their chocolate mousse dessert. The presentation was striking. The berry coulis on the bottom was fantastic. The mousse was so luxurious but not too rich. The crispy, nutty crust at the bottom was so addictive and the perfect addition of texture. I highly recommend this dessert here. They make a few other staple house made desserts and other daily sweet creations.
The sunset was colourful this evening. I love cotton candy skies.
I am so happy we celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Their vineyard patio was a great place to enjoy their seasonal creations. Check their website for hours, I do not believe they are open all year long. Reservations are recommended for dinner. I look forward to my future visits to Bacchus Bistro for their classically delicious fare.
