When i was told i could only eat outside and replied that i will cancel due to heat someone who later turned out to be Piotr Kwiatosz (head chef and one of the owners) gave me his table and went to do some paperwork outside....Duck i ordered was the best i ever had. Staff was friendly and efficient. Deserved proportionately highest tip I've ever given.More

A unexpected find in Lublin. We have been dining in various places in Poland and can say this was one of the best. A delicious meal in a relaxed setting. The food was a modern take on Polish cuisine and local ingredients (including their house...made quince liquor, a wonderful accompaniment to the dessert). The place settings were lovely and the staff friendly and professional.More

It was our first time in Lublin and we really wanted to taste something extraordinary in this city.... and we were not disappointed at all! The restaurant is beautiful, the service is very nice... but the experience starts when you get the first plate:). I...am personally not a fan of desserts, but surprisingly today I liked the dessert most out of all served dishes. It was fabulous - mixture of coffee flavor, Jerusalem artichoke ice cream and toasted sunflower seeds. My fiancee, on the other hand, liked the soup the most - white borsch with home made sausage, horseradish infused ricotta cheese and poached egg. In general, we highly recommend to visit this restaurant. I hope to see Piotr representing local cuisine in Top Chef.More

So then, Chapter One! Let's start with that it's a lovely cosy restaurant with only around 12-14 seats, but the food and service is sublime. We opted for the A la Carte but you can choose the tasting menu. The waiter introduced us too a...new Spanish wine, that suited all of the dishes, knowledge of wines was of a high level. So regarding the food, from venison (not deer) tartar, too zander soup, as starters. Then onto breast of duck, and oxtail ravioli as mains onto poached and compressed pears and orange segment with bairblanc ice cream to finish off!! So the food, wine and service outstanding!!! My only criticism was that the pear desert should be eaten using a spoon and fork!!! But that's really nip picking. If you fancy and enjoy good food this is definitely the place for you. The overall price for this fantastic service and food is probably around £100-£150 for two with food and drinks. Now that's good!!! Chapter One, we will be back for more, hopefully next time will be the spring menu. Thanks for a great eve!!!More

We had a short holiday break in Lublin Poland, while away we wanted a special meal as it was my wife’s birthday. We chose to visit Chapter One but pre booked our tasting menu’s online with them, three were vegan and one was a meat...tasting dishes consisting of 4 course plus other little tasters included. Everything about our experience was amazing, the food was perfect and so was the service, I would definitely visit this restaurant again if I came back to Lublin. If you want a special meal & experience with the best fine dining Lublin has to offer I would recommend you give Chapter ONE a try.More

We visited for the October Restaurant Week 2017. The food was delicious! Probably the best chicken I’ve ever had - juicy, succulent and flavorful. The pumpkin cake dessert was eaten before I could remember to take a picture. On top of that - excellent service,...tasteful interiors and intimate atmosphere. Highly recommend!More

Most of the restaurants in Lublin look identical and the food is pretty underwhelming. We decided to try this one as it sounded a bit different, but we were a little unsure as it wasn't as busy as the others. We needn't have worried as...it turned out to be one of the best meals we've ever had, not just in Poland, but around the world. The menu is short and creative. The chef really knows what he is doing, as each dish was filled with many amazing flavours that tasted delicious individually as well as combined together. I've eaten in many Michelin star restaurants that don't have food as good as this. The service was fantastic (especially compared to the general standard in Polish restaurants) - both professional and personable, and they have a good wine list. The prices are high for Poland, but anywhere else in Europe you would literally pay double or more for this quality and standard of cooking - to us it was a real bargain! To top it off, the location is beautiful in the main square, and you can sit outside enjoying the delightful square when weather permits. We were disappointed that the restaurant was much quieter than other restaurants around which served far inferior food. If you want a truly first class meal in Lublin, this is the place to go.More

Firstly Piotr Kwiatosz at C1 is a magician In many ways producing amazing flavours plus making his food (with the aid of large/coloured plates etc.) look much more substantial than it actually is......this is quite a talent ! Secondly in LUBLIN, it of 100++ Pizza...restaurants its wonderful to have C1 it being so DIFFERENT, not forgetting the most pleasant if bright (but this is a Polish tradition) dining room in Lublin. ALSO much as I am personally not a vegetarian it is equally wonderful of Piotr Kwiatosz to create such an amazing VEGETARIAN MENU something hopefully to the great advantage to visitors in the summer/etc. C1 has a good wine list by any Polish standards which is a considerable plus. I do not really want to say anything negative (as Lublin needs different restaurants badly) however for TRIP ADVISOR readers I have to say by Lublin standards C1 is expensive (probably very expensive) and it must be pointed out the food is MOST healthy with few calories per dish even the deserts. I however hope C1 keeps going for many years and those who can afford it ALL visit at least once. I understand C1 has (on occasion) a set lunch of 45 pin (?) for those that business lunch in LUBLIN OLD TOWN C1 must surely be a good option at such lunches they often need to be healthy it lunch after all.More
