The restaurant has lovely views and has a nice ambience. It wasn't busy when we were there and the staff were attentive and efficient. This is quite a pricey place and although the food was fine, I thought it was rather overpriced. I had the veal which didn't have much flavour but I liked my ravioli starter.

We (group of six people who like good food and drinks) enjoyed the food and wine in the beginning of the evening. Unfortunately the service decreased tremendously during the night and we increasingly got the feeling to be not welcomed anymore. The light of the wine cellar was switched off after our desert without giving us a notice and asking... More

Our first visit to de Mondion for New Years Day lunch was positive. The setting within the Xara Palace is beautiful and the restaurant itself is well decorated, with a great view of Malta from the window tables. The tables were nicely spaced out and the festive music was very appropriate :) The service was excellent. Professional, refined and with... More

If you haven't yet been, then do yourself a favour! This is real high end dining, in a wonderful room, with subdued lighting, soft background music, professional service and above all excellent food. The scallop starter was delicate and light, my wife's lamb was, I understand, exquisite, and my veggie main, specially tweaked for gluten free types, was a wonder... More

Had a 3 course dinner, preceded by the best gin n tonic ever, recommended by the very knowledgable sommelier. Each plate was impeccably cooked and plated. The wine was divine. Topped by excellent espresso and petit fours. A special meal throughout in an elegant private ambience.

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!
