Can't understand why Chapter One is not number One!

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... read more

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!

Chapter One, Malta is tucked away down a tiny side street and a stones throw from the Hilton Hotel where we were residing. This is quite a small but intimate venue, with a modern décor ambient lighting, soft background music and friendly staff. We were shown to our table and whilst my husband perused the wine list I mused over... More

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.

our second favourite on the trip Small tidy setting, sat outside very lovely and romantic setting Food nice choices Stuck to fish which was fresh and served nice. Maltese wines good selection, but more expensive that other places visited for same wine. Give it a try on our list to repeat visit
