We went there after seeing the high rating on this site. It's just down the street from the Hilton, on the way to the Westin. First reactions was that it's a small dark room but when you get inside it's bigger than you'd think and there is a tidy little outdoor courtyard at the back. No views but it's outside... More

Stumbled upon Chapter One by accident and thought we'd give it a go. Very attentive service, friendly atmosphere. The chef came out to chat and to give some recommendations. The food was absolutely top notch.

My husband and I dined for dinner at Chapter One this past weekend on our last night in St. Julian's. We always treat ourselves to one nice meal during a long weekend and we selected Chapter One for our Malta meal. Excellent food! We were given a bread basket to start and the server brought out a complimentary bite-sized octopus... More

Multiple sources listed this restaurant as one of the best and it did not disappoint. Started with red fresh rock fish and the linguini with prawns. Amazing. The mains were lamb, rabbit and veal. Even more amazing. And the desserts were the brownie (wish I'd ordered a second), the carrot cake (out of this world) and the pistachio ice cream... More

We booked this restaurant based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 7:30pm to an empty but very smart looking restaurant. The waitress was smart, courteous and very pleasant. We were seated at a lovely table and offered menus promptly. The menu was small but all of the dishes were very tempting. We did... More

This small restaurant is a bit tucked away in a tourist neighborhood. The interior is subtle and attractive. The service was slow but generally good. The food was exquisitely prepared and served. It was beautiful to look at and incredible to eat. The wine selection of Maltese wines was fairly priced. Overall, a memorable eating experience and fair value for... More

We’ve been to Malta many times and were on the look-out for new restaurants to try this time so thought we’d give Chapter One a go and we’re very glad we did. Fabulous food and great service. Can’t fault it.

Dined in April 2014. Although owner would say that it is a minimalism, interior is a bit poor for a restaurant that would like to a “Michelin star” restaurant. Should invest in better quality of the wall paint and furniture. Food vas very good , but not to die for.

I read a review of this restaurant in a time out magazine, as it was just round the corner from the hotel, I thought it was worth a try. I was concerned that we got a table at short notice but I was so pleased we did, the service was great with very friendly staff. Food was fantastic and the... More
