The de Mondion Restaurant

Always a great experience from start to finish. Regarded by patrons as "definitely the best in Malta".

Within the charming 17th century Xara Palace Relais and Chateaux in Mdina, you’ll find the one Michelin star de Mondion Restaurant, the epitome of fine cuisine and exceptional service. 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 local red prawns, served with a squid ink tapioca cracker and garum presents a lovely interplay of contrasting tastes that arouses the palate, while the risotto all’ amatriciana with local Pecorino, guanciale and tomatoes hold a delicate balance of flavours. The main courses offer a selection of fine cuts of meat including local pork, beef and pigeon, whilst fresh fish is always available. The local suckling pig dish served with pickled vegetables, dates and mustard jus is sure to impress. The de Mondion’s carefully curated list of over 300 labels includes both local and foreign gems. The raspberry and white chocolate soufflé for dessert will delight you before the meal wraps up with a surprise ending of petit fours. The staff at de Mondion have passion and pride for what they do and are trained to deliver the highest levels of service for a unique experience.
