Situated in a serene area of Naxxar, the Orchard Restaurant offers an intimate yet casual environment for patrons who want to enjoy a good lunch or dinner in a tranquil setting.

Full of natural light, the set-up is also ideal for corporate lunches, private dinners and special occasions. The modern classic restaurant enjoys a beautiful outdoor terrace for those wishing to dine outside.

The Orchard restaurant was launched on April 30. During the event, guests were treated to a five-course meal as a taster from the newly launched Orchard Menu, accompanied by different local wines to complement each course.

General manager Charmaine Attard, accompanied by AX Holdings chairman Angelo Xuereb greeted the guests and thanked them for accepting the invitation. They also introduced head chef James Rizzo, whose experience was reflected in the beautifully crafted dishes prepared on the night. Mr Rizzo has worked in the UK at Jamie’s Italian.

The Orchard menu offers a selection of traditional gastronomic dishes infused with some other in-house creations – all cooked by the head chef and his dedicated staff using the finest ingredients.

Scrumptious specials include pan-fried spiced duck and grilled lamb fillet. On May 1, a fresh summer menu was launched – this includes a combination of light starters, freshly prepared salads, char-grilled steaks and fish dishes.

The wine list complements the menu by offering a wide choice of wines from around the world. One can start a meal with something to tease their taste buds like the evergreen Negroni cocktail, and go all the way to finishing off with the refined taste of a vintage port.

The Orchard Restaurant opens daily for lunch from 12.30pm till 3.30pm and for dinner from 7pm till 9.30pm.

A special Sunday Buffet Carvery lunch is served between 1pm and 3pm offering a selection of antipasti, soups and pasta, followed by pork, beef and lamb from the carvery table along with a number of vegetable and potato dishes. The dessert table includes a wide selection of cakes, cheese dish and fresh fruit. The price is inclusive of free flowing local beer, wine, water and soft drinks.

The Orchard offers complimentary parking facilities to patrons, on a first come first served basis.

The Orchard is at Hilltop Gardens, Triq l-Inkwina, Naxxar. For bookings and more information call on 2235 1000 and visit
