“Superb” March 30, 2013
A special treat - we booked on a whim and were bowled over. Superb meal, beautifully presented, and discreetly served. And reasonably priced.
“Best view in Malta” February 24, 2013
Part of a boutique hotel the De Mondion is one of the best Restaurants in Malta and certainly has the best view as you can see from one side of the Island to the other.
The food is excellent and the hosted food and wine events held there are excellent and great value.
For a special occasion this is a great place to go. Sitting outside in the summer is something special here.
“A special birthday treat..” February 22, 2013
Me and my wife visited de Mondion last Wednesday for my birthday. We had both heard very positive things about this restaurant before so our expectations were very high. However everything met our expectations starting from the warm welcome offered from Head Waiter 'Joseph', the highly professional service throughout, the atmosphere and the exceptional food - by Chef 'Clinton'. Needless to say the location is spectacular. A must visit for all those who cherish high quality service and exquisite food in a superb presentation !
“A voyage for the senses” - November 15, 2012
Malta's finest, no doubt! A true culinary experience, Chef Kevin is a genius, the wine list is extraordinary, vast, worth the 15 mins it takes to flip through it! And to top it all, it's set in the magical bastions of Mdina, with an amazing view!
“World class service in an impressive setting with a menu that makes the taste buds jump with joy.” - October 19, 2012
The venue truly remarkable, based on the highest part of the castles walls the line of sight is impressive. The waitering service as is the list of wines to complement what will be an explosion of tastes is remarkable. The quail of finished product can clearly only be archived by sourcing the very best quality ingredients.
“Incredible!” - October 13, 2012
We were invited to de Mondion in the Xara Palace.........our table on the balcony, with wonderful views. Probably one of the best dinners EVER! Superb wine list. Very we'll worth going to & a serious treat!
“Unique” - October 11, 2012
This restaurant is one of three at the Xara Palace Hotel in Mdina, Malta. Mdina is a unique experience in itself. The Silent City, leaves you speechless and, in the evening, it is even more astounding with its' narrow roads, palazzos and centuries of history. De Mondion is right at the top of this amazing 16th century palace and the view from its' outdoor area leaves you breathless. You can see half of the whole island while sitting and enjoying a sumptuous meal. The setting is incomparable, a truly unique experience. The food was excellent and the presentation superlative. It is not cheap and cannot be, as everything about this place oozes quality from every angle and quality is expensive. However, the end product fully justifies the price because it is extremely difficult to find such a perfect combination of class, quality and beauty. An impressive venue indeed and a perfect setting for a romantic dinner.
“You can't go wrong when dining here” - October 1, 2012
As said in title you cant go wrong when dining here the food, view and wine list all complement to nothing but perfection in every aspect.
Well deserving of being a michelin star restaurant. The food and service were second to none. This restaurant is found in The Silent City and befits its name as being somewhere you can relax and have a lovely meal whilst looking out over the City of an evening. Very pretty views with all the lights shining.The waiters were very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble.The food was excellent as was the wine.A definite place to go for friends and couples alike. Very exclusive as this is only a small restaurant (probably 25/30 covers). The best views of Malta can be had from here.
This was our second visit to the restaurant, and we had an amazing time. The staff, the food, and a view to die for. Try and go when the villages are having their festa and you will be see a display of fireworks sitting on the terrace on a beautiful warm evening. We will be returning to Malta next year and will make a point of returning to de mondion.
I have only just arrived home after such an incredible evening. I couldn't wait to write my review on de Mondion restaurant. Everything from the view, the atmosphere, the food, the wine and most importantly the service was top quality. Food got served quickly after ordering and although the place was absolutely packed, the staff there were more than happy to talk to us. I strongly recommend this place if you like great food along with great service. Compliments to the chef Kevin bonello, Joshua for his excellent input to our wine selection and Joseph for a stimulating and friendly conversation. Thank you!
Had a first class dinner at this fabulous place. The food is lovely and all is blessed by an excellent staff. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves fine dining and wining.
This is a must for anyone visiting Malta and Mdina. The food laid on for us was simply fantastic. Amazing flavours and balance and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The terrace where we sat was just stunning and the staff looked after us very well. Many thanks Joseph! Highly recommended to everyone.
Ate here whilst staying in the Xara Palace, excellent food served on a terrace overlooking Mosta and in the far distance Valletta.
As always we received a warm welcome with an excellent table offering panoramic vistas of the south of Malta. An excellent menu, finely crafted augmented by a first class wine menu.
We had a business dinner in De Mondion in the late evening and we have really enjoyed the atmosphere with this special view. The prepared menu was really amazing. I would really recommend to have a dinner here.
It is actually worth traveling all the way to Malta to dine at this amazing restaurant. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and escorted to the restaurant upstairs. The service staff's knowledge is unmatched and it is obvious that they are well-trained and take pride in providing their customers with an unforgettable experience. The culinary presentation and taste were equally impressive and thus deserving of an overall five-star rating. The restaurant's location and breath-taking views (if seated next to a window) make this a perfect location for a romantic spot. Highly recommend and would certainly come back.
OK! – February 2010
“OK! loved the zingy lime-marinated prawns, freshly grilled fish at de Mondion, an upmarket rooftop restaurant at The Xara Palace.”
Eastern Daily Press – 27 March 2010
“The de Mondion was an experience with perfectly prepared, cooked and presented fine dining, which was totally in keeping with everything else about an amazing hotel I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending to everyone wishing to enjoy the best things in life.”
Square Meal Lifestyle Magazine – Spring 2010
The finest, and grandest, way to forget you are living in the 21st century is to dine at de Mondion, the restaurant at the 17th-century Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux. Here, a terrace built into the city walls offers views across the island.”
Daily Telegraph – 3 March 2010
Expect 17 antique-furnished rooms, mostly suites, in a 17th Century palazzo. Previous guests include Brad Pitt and John McCain. Its restaurant, de Mondion, is rated number one in Malta’s restaurant guide.”
ABTA Magazine – February 2010
“…the restaurant’s summer terrace affords incredible views over the surrounding countryside.”
