We'd walked past the restaurant a couple of times and thought it looked appealing so we booked for dinner at Chapter One. The entire experience was brilliant and resulted in by far the best meal we have had during our almost four weeks on Malta and Gozo. They certainly know how to cook here and with the help of Nico,...

My wife and I loved it!!! The veal is definitely good, so is the beef cheek! We eat better in Malta than in our own country: France!! What a shame to say that but so real!! Chapter one is a part of this affirmation!!

Just had a lovely valentines day dinner. Food was excellent . Fresh and not over the top with favours and the service was fast and not long pauses between courses. Topped of with a daffodil! Will definitely be back !

We went here for our Christmas Eve dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the menu. Although there wasn't an extensive choice it was one of the best meals we have had. Unique flavor combinations and reasonable prices.

Canadian, newly living in Malta - we stumbled across Chapter One on one of our walks, and immediately wanted to try it out. We did so the following week, and were greeted by their friendly staff who sat us immediately, without a reservation. Nico, the Restaurant Manager and lovely female counterpart served us very efficiently, and were very informative about... More

Malta is fast improving its culinary offering and this restaurant leads the pack. The Chef's Michelin training and the Maitre d's experience shine through. The ravioli and risotto starters were very good and the Wagyu beef and rabbit main courses were excellent. Highly recommended because this restaurant would stand up to the toughest competition anywhere.

During our two weeks Malta St. Julian´s vacation, Chapter One became our all time favourite place to dine. Great and well presented food, friendly competent service, lovely relaxing atmosphere. A MUST visit restaurant!
