Visited here in June. We had visited previously under old management but decided to try again under the new owners. Food was beautiful, service was excellent and they couldn't do enough for you. A lovely fine dining experience and couldn't recommend any more. On our visit we were the only people in the restaurant, which was strange considering how good... More

Went here based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. Nicely decorated inside with a small outside terrace which looked fairly ordinary in daylight but improved as darkness fell. The place is run by a young Italian couple who have obviously put a lot of effort into making it an attractive dining option. The menu is quite small but different... More

New owners and operators since April 2016. Short menu of highly desirable dishes. Delicious food, well presented. Good wine list covering wide range of price points. The restaurant was highly obliging in changing dishes to accommodate personal tastes. Great service. Fine dining at a reasonable price. I highly recommend.

My partner and I have been travelling Europe for a month (Spain, Portugal, France, Holland, Sicily and Malta) and haven't been blown away by many restaurants. So you can imagine our surprise (and pleasure) having discovered this gem. My partner and I shared six dishes (two entres, two mains and two desserts) and each was amazingly delicious. The chicken was... More

I must say I was a big fan of the previous team at Chapter One, who along with Zest, offered much-needed respite from the pizzerias, burger bars and other places offering very ordinary food in St Julians/Paceville. If you prefer quality to quantity, try the new team who have taken over Chapter One and have the same ambition as the... More

This is a "proper" restaurant, it is new, so has only a few reviews on TA, however that will change as will its low rating. This is fine dining, beautiful presentation at a very reasonable price. I had the chefs tasting menu with wine for €45, three courses, three wines, plus a glass a prosecco to start was great value... More

We stumbled upon this place whilst browsing the internet for a good place to eat in St Julians. Initial reaction was unremarkable but when the food came it was clear that the chef was extremely talented indeed. Light, fresh flavours dominated everything, and an exceptional talent for pairing flavours; the whole thing was unbelievably good. So good in fact, that... More

Its hard to believe how good the food is here. The young owners serve a variety of traditional and modern cooking ....including sous vide. Flavours are outstanding. Great value with good service.
