Definitely a must on the island if you like fine dining! when we arrived we had a glass of champagne followed with a lovely meal & wine pairing. Andre Micallef (if not mistaken) took care of us and explained every wine we were drinking in a professional way. All the food was outstanding. Cant wait to come back, keep up... More

Not to be missed if you are looking for a really special evening; expensive, but worth it for the cuisine, service and knowledgeable sommelier. Wonderful views, especially if weather permits dining on the terrace. Chef is a genius!

My husband and I with another couple were staying at the hotel where this restaurant is located so we decided to eat there one of our three nights at the hotel both for convenience sake and because it had been so well reviewed. The dining room is quite lovely though on the formal side and the biggest complaint we had,... More

Our last night of a tour was on the outdoor patio of this wonderful restaurant and it couldn't have been more perfect. The service was very attentive, the food delicious and the views spectacular. Just before the dessert, it began to rain heavily. With great ease, we were all shepereded inside and the meal continued with wine, chocolates and coffee... More

We were a little disappointed with this restaurant which gets good ratings. The food was good but not outstanding however the prices were high. The staff were attentive. However the waiter wanted to serve me on my right side and sitting on a balcony with the railing to my right meant he had to stand directly behind me and at... More

I have eaten at a good many fine eating establishments but none compare to de Mondion. The views are spectacular, the service superlative and the food is quite exceptional. The wine list covers just about every world class vineyard there is with some real gems. It isn't cheap but every Euro is worth it.

The hotel was a little difficult to find, but well worth the walk around Mdina to find it. The restaurant is on the top floor overlooking the countryside. At night the lights twinkle and it is quite magical and very romantic. We were with our boss, so no romance on our visit there. The food was exceptional as was the... More
