From start to finish,front of house, food, wine, irish coffee (which are a must) this was a brilliant experience. The food was superb. We all tried something different and each one looked as good as the next.... i had the fish soup, pheasant and the honey desert. Simple delicious. Cannot fault it. Brilliant experience

Chapter One is a truly fantastic experience from beginning to end & is one of the best Restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of dining in. Chapter One don't court pomp & ceremony & instead the very informative & friendly staff make you feel like a very welcome guest at their dinner table.

so a nice thing to do is to go to the Gate Theatre which is close by Chapter one. You can have your starter and main course - head to the play and then come back for dessert and after dinner drinks. CANNOT recommend highly enough. Sometimes overlooked because of where it is. Unmissable.

Fabulous Michelin starred restaurant. Wonderful food in gorgeous surroundings with the nicest Maitre D in Dublin. Try the table in the kitchen for an intimate view of proceedings or the private room if you have a bigger group. Perfect location for a special event or Anniversary.

Chapter one is a landmark eatery in Dublin city. It is the 'go to' restaurant to dine in for a catch up with friends, a meal with family, a first date, a second date or a pre theatre meal. Why? Because it never disappoints. The staff are welcoming, fun and professional - ALL the time! Regardless of your wine or... More

Can't afford to eat here too often but maybe I should make sacrifices as always very impressed. Martin the maitre d is very welcoming and food is spectacular. They do a great Gate pre theatre which is good value and practical - tickets collected etc.
