We had an amazing lunch here to celebrate my 30th birthday. We received a very warm welcome from Martin and were very much put at ease within the first 5 minutes of arriving.We had the taster menu and loved all the courses. The food was truly sensational and we would highly recommend dining here. Thank you for making my 30th... More

Dining at Chapter One was definitely one of the most memorable experiences that we've ever had. Reminded us very much of Sante' at The Mission Inn when they were on top of their game several years ago. The service was impeccable without being overbearing. Our server Doklan, please forgive my spelling was wonderful and friendly. From bread service to the... More

Chapter One is one of only a handful of Michelin Star restaurants in Dublin/Ireland, but don't let that put you off! It's fine dining to be sure and you're not going to get massive portions, but what you do get is food bursting with flavour presented beautifully. Of course, this comes at a price. However, if you opt for their... More

We love this restaurant every time we go – it never disappoints. The building itself is fascinating, the staff are lovely, the welcome Martin himself gives you is very entertaining, and from the moment you step inside to the moment you leave, it’s a fantastic experience. The wine list is amazing and I have never had a bad dish in... More

My husband got a present of a voucher for Chapter One so we went along with another couple. They had been before but it was our first time. There was someone to greet us the minute we arrived. We were brought to a lovely room beside the dining area for pre dinner drinks while we waited for our table. The... More
