Well worth a visit

Given it was our first night we didn't want to stray too far from the hotel, so finding chapter 1 was a great result. It was very close to getting 5 star as the food was really good, the wine was excellent and the staff were very pleasant. I had the local octopus special to start, the tomato... read more

We had dinner and it was ok - maybe people are more excited about the idea of the restaurant than the actual food in reality. We arrived at 8pm and some dishes were finished and other diners then also had dishes with apologies as the kitchen had run out. Not really a good sign of a professionally run restaurant. I... More

A well informed waiter gave us a rundown on each wine we might be interested in, as well as descibing each dish and how the food would be cooked. I had a risotto with pulled pork and mushrooms, which was delicious, my friend had a cold beetroot soup, also lovely. For mains, I had an excellent "special" ribeye steak at... More

We had previously visited chapter one in Dublin (although not associated) yet we had high hopes anyway! You can tell when a menu isn't very extensive that the food is going to be absolutely delicious. We weren't wrong, we booked a table for 8pm which wasn't needed and we had the outside area for ourselves for quite a while before... More

Intimate venue, excellent food and good service. We sat in the small courtyard at the back which was very pleasant but the inside looked very nice as well. Started with a risotto of Rock Fish and Asparagus which set the bar high. We will be going back next week.

Last Saturday my husband and I went to Chapter 1 restaurant in St. Julian's for our anniversary celebration meal. Together with two other couples, our friends , we decided to go their having heard that they served excellent food. The place is small but delightful and relaxing. I loved the tile art on the walls. Although there were quite a... More

Had a meal for two at a table in the outside courtyard. Service was very good, however there was a total lack of atmosphere, maybe a table inside would have been better. Not an extensive choice of menu. My partners main ( fish) was ok nothing spectacular and didn't have a lot of flavour. I chose chicken legs served deboned.... More

Lovely small restaurant. Small but very tasty menu. Excellent wine list and very knowledgeable staff. Food was delicious. We sat outside in the covered courtyard. Lovely background music and soft lighting. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

This is our last meal at Malta and we chose this restaurant. The server is very nice and takes good care of us. We were able to sit at the patio by ourself for the whole night which we enjoyed so much. Food and wine are so great. Service is great as well. Must to try place.

This is a small restaurant, we booked online for 730pm, there were plenty of tables available but it got busier as people arrived later. Licenced with a good wine list. The menu offered a limited but good variety of food, there were many seafood dishes. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive and the food was beautiful. We were pleasantly... More
