de Mondion

By all accounts, this is a "favourite" for "fine dining" enthusiasts who praise the "outstanding service and professional staff"

Within the charming 17th century Xara Palace Relais and Chateaux in Mdina, is the de Mondion Restaurant, the epitome of fine cuisine and exceptional service. Greys, pinks and browns and a soft fitted carpet complement the restaurant’s wooden windows and beams for an elegant and classy decor. From the terrace or through the windows, one is treated to stunning views of the island. At night time, a carpet of shimmering lights gives the feeling of looking down upon a tapestry of fireflies.

Start your meal with an enticing amuse bouche and a glass of pink champagne. Next, the pressed foie gras terrine with Kashmir garam masala and cured duck breast, presents a lovely interplay of contrasting tastes that arouses the palate, while the main course of roasted best end of lamb with Moroccan spices is sure to impress. Accompany each course with a grape from the de Mondion’s carefully-curated list of over 300 wines including such gems as Markus Divinus. Desserts will delight you with playful textures and colours, before the meal wraps up with a surprise ending of chocolate petit fours. The de Mondion is a restaurant with the ambition and potential for a Michelin star, not just for its cuisine, but also for its service. The staff hold a burning passion and pride for what they do, and are clearly trained to deliver the highest levels of service for a truly unique experience.
