The de Mondion Restaurant

Reviews & Comments

“A first class experience”
March 26, 2014
We recently had the privilege of staying at the Xara Palace in Mdina and took advantage by booking a table at the Mondion Restaurant, which is part of the hotel. This turned out to be an exemplary idea with the food and service supplied being of the highest quality. The Mondion boasts an extensive wine list to accompany the excellent food and the staff provide an ambiance befitting of its status as a top quality restaurant. Comfortingly the Menu wasn't so extensive that it allowed the chef to give each course the attention that the final product clearly had, and a visit from the chef to the table at the end of the meal showed how clearly he cared about what had been presented. I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough.

This has to be the restaurant. Excellent views, a terrace and attentive staff all compliment the superb cooking. Make time and enjoy you meal here it pays to linger to enjoy each course. A real treat!

“Excellent lunch at de Mondion Restaurant”
April 23, 2014
This was the second time we've been to de Mondion. The first time was for dinner, but was some time ago, and it was magnificent. This time it was for lunch. The quality of the food, and the service have remained excellent and for me it is rated as the best restaurant in Malta.

We loved our first evening here. The hotel itself is beautiful and really quiet. Had a couple of drinks in the bar and then went up for dinner. Dinner was amazing as was the wine. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Beautiful restaurant in an incredible town. Anyone looking for excellent food and reasonable service in a spectacular setting should visit this restaurant. Book well in advance and ask for a window seat. Thanks for a great evening!

We enjoyed our meal greatly, views were spectacular. The best place on the island we have found for fine dining

“Fabulous food with phenomenal view”

Table outside on the old city wall over looking the lights of Malta and the Mediterranean in the distance. Excellent wine selection and superb dinner with a few fireworks in the distance by chance to end the evening.

“Best night ever!”
July 9, 2014
Well, what can I say?! My partner took me here as a surprise last weekend and proposed to me, and I just cannot speak highly enough of this place. I will firstly talk about the restaurant itself, breathtaking views, elegant, sophisticated setting, beautiful ambiance.
The food itself is really something special, we have eaten in some fantastic restaurants around the world and this is one of the best. Absolutely delicious, lovingly prepared, just perfect! And the presentation so good you almost do not want to spoil it!
The staff here are something else too, from the minute we walked in we felt welcomed, and like nothing was too much trouble, they were so attentive and friendly. I want to make a special mention to Janica, the maitre de (or manager), I`m not too sure. She was so helpful from the start, helping my partner plan the perfect proposal, again, nothing too much trouble, she really cares how your night is going, as do all the staff. And just to add it she did not go out of her way just because it was a special night for us, she spent time with each and every table. This restaurant are very lucky to have her!
I could ramble on about this place all night, but you get the picture! Do not go to malta without a visit to this magical place, truly a night to remember, and I would go back to Malta just to visit this restaurant! Enjoy.

“5 Star”

An incredible setting with fantastic views over Malta. Menu is international in flavour. Wine list extensive and sommelier very knowledgeable. Service attentive but not intrusive - professional. Food was of very high quality and beautifully presented. A very memorable evening at reasonable price.

One of the best restaurants on the island of Malta. The food, view and ambiance make for some of the best fine dining experiences you will find here. Price is high but definitely worth a visit.

“Great place”
August 5, 2014
Great place for a special romatic occasion. It has a spectacular view. The service is very good, the waiters are trained very well. We were there on one of the days that it was a bit chilly and the ladies were offered a bolero to make sure they weren't cold. A very thoughtful gesture. The food is as to be expected from a venue like this. I was pleasantly surprised that they also offer cigars (upon request), since we always love to have one after a good dinner. All by all a place I can recommend.

“You get what you pay for”
August 26, 2014
If you are looking for a meal to fit a budget, don't go here. However, if you want something very special and you can afford to blow €100 per head ( for 3+ courses including various wines), there truly is no better place to eat. The quality of the produce is first class, cooked to perfection in the most authentic and romantic setting. Service is second to none. The only negative is that sometimes the staff assume that you'll be topping up the wine orders, or requiring champagne without first checking - but just be firm about what you want. You will leave comfortably full, feeling very special and without much change!!! Still my absolute favourite and most special place in Malta

“Excellent food and a first class service”
August 27, 2014
Definitely one of the most pleasant restaurant experiences. Excellent food coupled with highly trained staff really made my experience at the de Mondion quite a unique one. Definitely a restaurant on a totally different level. Special thanks to the very polite and efficient staff who took care of us on the night.

“Favourite Restaurant in Malta”
August 28, 2014
I must have vistited De Mondion twenty times over the years, and although the restaurant scene in Malta is fast-developing, it remains my favourite, be it for a romantic dinner over the bastions or an adult family get-together.
The service is impeccable, the food wonderfully presented and ever better tasting. It has an air of sophistication lacking in many Maltese restaurants, yet, remains friendly and welcoming. Yes, it is one of the more expsive restaurants but worth every penny.

“Perfect for that special experience of a lifetime”
September 15, 2014
After reading last year's Awards Winners’ results on Malta's most elite book (issued yearly by Restaurants Malta), I decided to take my fiancee to the De Mondion Restaurant for a surprise anniversary celebration and I can just say that my decision was the best ever, since our anniversary dinner was so fact, my girlfriend was so happy with this surprise.... and she described it as "an experience of a lifetime"....:)

Food was fantastic, cooked with perfection and was coupled with great views and ambience. Gluten free options was not a problem at all. Moreover, a nice wine list accompanied the outstanding food. The place is so romantic.

Furthermore, service was seven was so attentive, that you may need to ask for some privacy :)

Definitely one to recommend for that special occasion!
