The festa season in Malta reaches its peak on 15th August when the country comes together to celebrate Santa Marija. Seven towns around the Maltese islands celebrate with incredible fireworks displays, including Mqabba, Qrendi, Attard, Mosta, Ħal Għaxaq, Gudja and in the capital of the sister island, Victoria, Gozo.

Celebrate this year’s festa by joining us on Saturday 14th or Sunday 15th August 2021 for one of the most awaited evenings annually at the Michelin Starred Restaurant, the de Mondion. Situated in the upper floor of the luxurious boutique hotel, The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, on the hilltop city of Mdina, the de Mondion offers splendid views of the island.

The Tasting Menu event is a combination of astonishing 180-degree panoramic views of the island, fine cuisine prepared by our Michelin Star Chef Kevin Bonello and the award-winning kitchen brigade. Enjoy breath-taking views from our terrace while witnessing a spectacle of firework display from six different locations. Our distinctive stellar service is an experience in itself. You will also enjoy a sommelier that can pair wines for the evening. An annual event that shouldn’t be missed under Santa Marija’s dazzling skies. We can guarantee that this is an experience like no other!
