Within the charming 17th century Xara Palace Relais and Chateaux in Mdina, you’ll find de Mondion Restaurant, the epitome of fine cuisine and exceptional service. Soft greys, pinks and browns and a plush fitted carpet complement the restaurant’s wooden windows and beams for an overall elegantly refined decor. The de Mondion promises discreet yet impeccably attentive service allowing patrons the time and privacy to savour the cuisine, the company and the 180° views of the island.
The pressed foie gras terrine and pan fried pears, cumin and crumble, presents a lovely interplay of contrasting tastes that arouses the palate, while the risotto of smoked eel, peas and parmigiano hold a delicate balance of flavours. The main courses offer a selection of fine cuts of meat including local rabbit, beef and pork, whilst fresh fish is always available. The rabbit loin and shoulder with onion, garlic and fennel is sure to impress. The de Mondion’s carefully curated list of over 300 vintages including such gems as Markus Divinus.
