The Orchard Bar & Restaurant

I was looking for a chilled out place with great live music where I could bring my two kids for a nice dinner. Many of my friends recommended The Orchard Bar & Restaurant so my kids and I decided to give it a try.
Found the place relatively easy despite the location tucked a little off the main road of Jalan Nakula, Seminyak. We were greeted with friendly smiles and settled at the table closer to the stage where the band was just getting ready to jam. We felt quite a homely atmosphere there especially since after a minute of arriving my two kids already made friends with a lovely family on the table next to us.

I ordered the Gourmet double cheesburger and coconut daiquiri, chicken wings for my eldest son while my youngest opted for his all time favorite, fish and chips.
My coconut daiquiri was so good, smooth and refreshing. Perfect way to start one fun evening. The band started playing and Holly molly!!! There’s some seriously outstanding talents up there – I was totally impressed and so were my kids, they were enjoying themselves dancing joyfully to the music, so I guess now I see what the hype of this place is all about.
I loved that our food arrived at the same time. My Gourmet double cheeseburger was decent, this stack of goodness made out of 180g prime Angus beef, streaky bacon, real cheddar cheese slices and 2 giant onion rings all packed into a sesame bun served with house wedges and mixed salad, yum!! My son loved his chicken wings – glazed in honey, sweet chili butter, topped with corriander, chili and garlic crisps… Tasty and spicy, matched perfectly to his taste. My youngest son’s much desired fish and chips served perfectly in quite a generous portion, of 200g of fresh meaty mahi mahi in a traditional Whitby beer batter, served with homemade chips and a side helping of mushy peas ( when available), tartar sauce, bread and batter scraps to top it off – he shared a nice bite and it was delightful – no wonder he ate it all up! A smaller version is also available on the kids menu. We finished it off sweetly by sharing The Orchard‘s homemade sticky toffee pudding that came with vanilla ice cream and topped with rich toffee sauce, what an amazing end to an amazing dinner!

We spent the rest of the evening enjoying the live music and great conversation with our new friends who happened to mention about The Orchard‘s famous Sunday Roast with a choice of prime beef, roasted chicken or crackling pork and all the delicious sides, definitely try this next time!
Open from 8am – 1am everyday, the kitchen offers a great variety of comfort grub such as Bangers and mash, Chicken parmesan, Crispy roast pork belly, sandwiches, burgers and more. Vegetarian meals are available too! A selection of cocktails, wine and spirits, as well as draught beer are ready to help you into a fun night, happy hour of buy 1 get 1 free from 5-7pm everyday. Don’t worry if you don’t drink alcohol, they have Milkshakes and healthy juices too.
Great food, great live music and more importantly genuine hospitality in such a homely atmosphere which to me is quite a rare find nowadays – there’s nothing more I could possibly want for a good night out with my family, The Orchard is a hidden gem…
We had the best time and will surely be back very soon!
