Dined there once and was very pleased. Comfortable with good service. Decor is very trendy/modern in style. Food not unduly expensive considering the quality and portion-size. Well cooked and presented using quality ingredients.

Very simple, but attractive design. Small. Right amidst the St Julian hotel life. A poster by the entrance announcing that the chef has actually cooked in a Michelin starred restaurant appears rather ridiculous as there are so many thousands of these nowadays. Restrooms in the cellar minuscule; not easily reachable by a narrow spiral staircase if you are more than... More

Chapter One has gained a reputation as a pillar in food innovation. I have had the pleasure of dining at Chapter One multiple times and can honestly say it is one of Malta's best-kept secrets in the culinary industry today. The simple yet chic decor allows for the beauty of the food to shine through, though it isn't just the... More

Sought this restaurant out after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, tucked away down a side street just minutes from the Hilton where we were staying. The restaurant was full when we arrived but there was one table left outside at the rear in a very tasteful covered garden with fountain and mood lighting. Being here for ony 3... More

It was the first time dining at this restaurant and for sure not the last. The food was prepared with dedication and precision. The service team were also informative and attentive. As a starter we had the risotto with fresh black truffles and the linguini which both were amazing. As a main course we had the rump of lamb which... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were impressed of how knowledgeable the waiter was .. truly adds a professional touch to the service! Food was great too and the fact that you get free parking makes your night hassle free which is perfect.

Having read the reviews we thought that this would be our ideal special meal on our holiday in Malta. Everything pointed to great food and a good atmosphere. The pricing here is high by the local standards but we were happy to pay for a good dining experience. The food was excellent. The ambience, non existent. The young waiter was... More

This restaurant is a must for anyone staying in St Julian's. Starters of beautiful octopus with gazpacho and a stunning truffle risotto were followed by a perfect saddle of rabbit with prunes and a fillet of beef. The rabbit was melt in the mouth perfection. Staff were attentive, friendly and helpful. We had seen several reviews which complained that the... More
