Il-Loġġa stands proudly at a crossroads in Xaghra. If you find yourself travelling towards this restaurant, do yourself a favour and stop for an exquisite meal that delivers quite the surprise with every course. Il-Loġġa also acts as a boutique hotel and is fully-equipped with above standard dining areas where chef Christof serves up his wonderful menu in a quaint restaurant full of character and an eye for fine wine, both local and international. the rustic setting of the restaurant allows all architectural features to be appreciated in their original state, while the views of nearby greenery add to the charisma of the eatery.
The menu is simple yet structured with bold flavours to entice the palate, especially when served alongside the wine pairing suggestions of manager Joseph. Delicate antipasti and a glass of Valdobbiadene prosecco start off your meal on a perfect note. A choice between chicken and truffle balls served on a creamy ginger lemon mousse, or lamb loin with onion jus and pistachio crumble, both pair wonderfully with the Ta’ Betta Jean Parisot, a well-structured white wine with a smoked oak finish. Mains vary from a finer approach to local rabbit, succulent lamb shanks and a lightly-spiced duck breast. Save some room for the panna cotta or house-made blackberry or strawberry liquor for the perfect conclusion.
