“Another MUST in Malta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

What a terrific restaurant with amazing food, served by the most attentive and friendly staff. The ambiance was tranquil and relaxed. We ate outside on the intimate patio although the inside dining area looked just as delightful. Definitely a must visit if you want a classy dining experience in St Julians in Malta.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Small but cosy, although with a modern feel we sat in a small outside courtyard with only 4 tables which was great and the food was superb with fantastic meat and fish specials of the day.
The staff and service was first class!

“I will be back!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I recently had the opportunity to eat at this fantastic restaurant. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who took us to our table in the outside courtyard area. The menu offered so many tempting choices that it took me some time to finally make a decision. The wine list was very comprehensive again making a choice quite hard. The waiter was able to offer some suggestions which was very helpful. I was fortunate to be able to try the cauliflower soup, truffle risotto and prawn risotto for entree. All were full of flavour and the serving size was generous. After such tasty starters I was excited about trying the main course. Once again I had the opportunity to taste more than one main course and could not fault any of them. For dessert I chose the Caramelised Lemon Tart and refused to share with anyone else as it was so good!!
All up this was a very enjoyable evening, from the lovely atmosphere, exceptional food to the friendly helpful staff and would rate this as the best meal I had in Malta and one of the best I have ever eaten.

“The Wow Factor - Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Chapter One is by far the best restaurant in St. Julian's and deserves to be Number One. We had made a reservation for dinner and enjoyed it so much, we went back a few nights later.
The chef is extremely talented. His brother works front of house and you couldn't wish for a warmer welcome or better service. I had the scallop and langoustine starter and have never tasted langoustines like this before. Every mouthful was pure heaven. My partner had the carbonara We both chose the duck which was just beautiful. So many flavours and cooked to perfection. The lemon tart and creme brûlée lived up to their reputation. The whole menu is a flavour sensation; fresh ingredients, beautifully executed and I look forward to the next chapter!! I really wish you guys every success. You deserve it. Thank you.
