Wonderful

Just an amazing place to visit and enjoy. I go here a lot and never have I had a bad experience. Food is on a par with anywhere in London or NY. The service is charming and sincere. It's the best of Irish cuisine.

Been a while since we visited Chapter One . Thanks to a lovely Christmas gift from family we saved it for a family night and celebrated a number of events here last night. From our arrival to departure it was amazing and mostly as a result of the attention and care of the maître d. He took care of us... More

Everything is perfect, from the welcoming and attentive maitre to the seating arrangements, to the knowledgeable service... and of course the food. All in all, it's also excellent value. Well deserved stars.

We had the excellent prix fixe lunch, great value for such elegant food. The red mullet was especially good. The spring veg were a revelation.

My husband and myself and another couple dined at Chapter One on a busy Saturday night in early June. I had made a reservation some weeks earlier prior to leaving Australia. It is probably one of the best dining experiences I have had. Fantastic fresh food, beautifully presented, with just the right sort of service - fun and attentive -... More

My partner, child and I had the lunch tasting menu here in April 2015. And we had a great meal (even the little one!) Our waiter explained every single dish to us, and patiently answered my numerous questions. My wife and I particularly enjoyed the Japanese pearl tapioca, Mulloy's smoked haddock & Atlantic scallop; I quite enjoyed the poached rhubarb... More

Service, food, wine list, environment were all perfectly synchronized. A wonderful dining experience. Loved the "old school" Irish coffee. Well worth the money....something I sometimes feel stretched to say, but not here!

Visited Chapter One in June 2015 and I must say it was the best dining experience I have ever had. From being greeted at the door by Martin to our goodbyes, we couldn't fault a thing. For us, it wasn't just about the food, it was the whole experience. Our pre meal drinks were so relaxing and inviting and we... More

Dublin is the home of many a fine restaurant and the Michelin-starred Chapter One is right up there. We rolled up without a reservation and were given the 'Chef's Table' in the kitchen. It was absolutely delightful and I recommend the experience if you're given a chance. The food was great, of course. I highly recommend the Irish coffee, which... More
