The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

The Or­chard Restau­rant is sit­u­ated at a serene area in Naxxar of­fer­ing 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 makes it 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.

On Mon­day, 30 April the grand launch of The Or­chard restau­rant took place – 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 plate.

Char­maine At­tard, gen­eral man­ager, ac­com­pa­nied by AX Hold­ings chair­man, An­gelo Xuereb greeted the dis­tin­guished guests and thanked them for ac­cept­ing the in­vi­ta­tion. In do­ing so she in­tro­duced the re­cently ap­pointed head chef James Rizzo, whose ex­pe­ri­ence was re­flected in the beau­ti­fully crafted dishes pre­pared on the night.

Rizzo has worked in the UK with Jamie Oliver in one of his fran­chise restau­rants, Jamie’s Ital­ian. More­over, he worked as a re­lief head chef across Jamie Oliver’s restau­rants in the UK and helped out in Jamie’s food de­vel­op­ment kitchen team, for his up­com­ing menus.

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 of in­gre­di­ents. Leaf­ing through the menu one could also find some scrump- tious spe­cials such as the pan-fried spied duck and the grilled lamb fil­let, among oth­ers.

On 1 May a fresh sum­mer menu was launched. A com­bi­na­tion of light starters, to freshly pre­pared sal­ads, mov­ing on to some char-grilled steaks and fish dishes can all be served with the Or­chard kitchen’s orig­i­nal touch.

The wine list com­ple­ments the menu by of­fer­ing a wide spec­trum of wines from around the world. One can start their meal with some­thing to tease one’s taste buds like the ev­er­green Ne­groni cock­tail and go all the way to fin­ish­ing off with more re­fined tastes like the Vin­tage Port.

The Or­chard Restau­rant opens daily for lunch from 12.30 to 3.30pm and for din­ner from 7 to 9.30pm. A spe­cial Sun­day Buf­fet Carvery lunch is served be­tween 1 and 3pm of­fer­ing a gen­er­ous 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, a cheese dish and fresh fruit. The price is in­clu­sive of free flow­ing lo­cal beer, wine, wa­ter and soft drinks.
