This is a great little restaurant - emphasis is on the food - not the view. Atmosphere ok - but if you just want a high quality dinner at reasonable prices I haven't found better yet in Malta.

Stumbled on Chapter One by accident. Michelin trained chef caught our eye and a reassuringly small menu meant we knew everything was going to be prepared fresh. But plenty of specials , 3 starters and 4 main courses. Superb and interestingly varied wine list. Excellent and knowledgeable staff complimented the meal. Worth searching out.

I have been a couple of times in the past few months and I love it. The food is definitely worth a michelin star, the service is great and the owners are lovely. Always a pleasure to go there.

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
