Best Food in Dublin

Was in Chapter One the 31st of July, reservation was for 20:30. Greeted by the hostess and shown to our table. We ordered from the 4 course menu, and I can safely say that it was the nicest food I have eaten in Dublin. Our waiter Declan was great, not over crowding us nor leaving us alone too long... read more

Very good food and experience. Not big portions, like ark on a plate. food is fabulous. over priced but only just. You are paying for location, and the guarantee of great food. I'm a big eater so might not be back but thank you for my great meal

Went on a Week day night, quite a nice buzz to the restaurant. Decor was very nice. Staff super friendly and very attentive . We got the four course menu, every course was excellent. Can't wait to return.

This restaurant, in the less than fashionable side of the city, is as good as it gets. Chef Ross Lewis and co-owner Martin Corbett, acting as Maitre d', have been wowing customers for over twenty years. To cut to the chase - the food is superb, the service impeccable and the ambience welcoming and comforting. I've been many times and... More

On my last visit we were shown around the kitchen and in the near fiuture I look forward to trying their Chefs Table... More

Chapter One has all the deserved accolades one would expect from a Michelin-rated restaurant, and what's nice about this one is that it comes with none of the pretentiousness or entitlement of other establishments that have earned their stars of previous years. You get the feeling at Chapter One that the entire staff is eager to please, regardless of their... More

Obviously this restaurant has a great reputation but I must admit I left a little disappointed. Food was presented like a work of art but to be honest I've had tastier in Dublin. Desert was dreadful. Staff are a little OTT as you may expect in a restaurant like this. Atmosphere slightly lacking. Maitre D was annoying to me. She... More
