Stepping into spring

Written by Ramona Depares for E&D Magazine in The Times of Malta

It’s seasonal flavours with a twist at de Mondion. Ramona Depares samples the new menu.
Spring has broken, signalling an appetite for fresher flavours, lighter dishes and seasonal ingredients. These are all elements that are reflected in the new menu that has been created by the Chef de Cuisine Kevin Bonello and Sous Chef Clint Grech and the team at de Mondion, at The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, Mdina.
Regulars at the restaurant – which prides itself on using regional, fresh ingredients as much as possible – will be happy to know that the de Mondion ethos of exquisite food and top-notch service is still a priority. To these, chef has added some interesting twists to the traditional favourites, as restaurant manager Anthony Quechon tells me.

De Mondion- extraordinary dining in the heart of Mdina

Written by Steve Calleja for The Malta Independent

It is always fascinating to walk the streets of Mdina in the evenings. It’s quiet, perhaps a little bit eerie too. Without the noise of cars and with the shadows of the old capital city’s narrow streets, stepping into Mdina gives the shivers whether it is winter or summer.

A Gastronomic Experience at The de Mondion

Set atop Mdina’s centuries- old bastions, within The Xara Palace Relais & Châteaux, awarded the runner-up for the best dining boutique hotel in the world, the de Mondion offers a unique fine dining experience, enhanced by truly spectacular panoramic views of the island from the terraces and charming features in elegant surroundings.
