Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz: Restaurants and bars
Amongst all the hotels in Malta, the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz is probably unique in that it has its own gardens where a lot of the fruit and vegetables used by the chefs in the different restaurants are grown. There are three restaurants: L'Ortolan Restaurant, the Trattoria San Lawrenz and the Gazebo, the garden restaurant.
L'Ortolan Restaurant is where the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz's guests can enjoy their sumptuous buffet breakfast. In the evenings, L'Ortolan Restaurant provides Mediterranean cuisine, from Red-Snapper subtly flavoured with lemon and thyme to beef carpaccio with truffle oil. On warm summer evenings, the restaurant extends onto the large al-fresco terrace overlooking the pool area, where you can enjoy candle-lit romance under the stars.
For those who particularly love Italian food, the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz's Trattoria San Lawrenz will sate their appetites. Starting with an extensive range of antipasti, moving on to the pastas or risottos, with a "secondo" of maybe veal piccatta with asparagus and mushrooms or freshly caught fish there is hardly room for the "dolce" (sweets).
Protected from the heat of the Sun by the bamboo roof, guests at the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz can lunch al fresco in the Gazebo Restaurant. Serving such light dishes as a fresh garden salad of cucumbers, peppers, onions and cherry tomatoes, drizzled with golden olive oil and washed down with possibly a chilled chardonnay, the Gazebo Restaurant is the ideal place to spend a relaxing lunch.
The Il-Baldakkin, Café and Lounge provides a relaxing area to meet friends for a light meal (lunch or dinner) or drink. The west facing terrace provides an afternoon Sun-trap and the perfect place to enjoy an aperitif or even a light dinner whilst watching the Sun go down.
The Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz's Pool Bar serves cool beverages for people relaxing by the pool. From the complimentary iced tea to other drinks, such as ice-cold beers or a cocktail, the Pool Bar staff are there to ensure you enjoy your stay.
