“Good food great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

First and foremost we will pay this friendly little restaurant another visit. The menu is not overly extensive but the quality of the dishes that are served really are very good . Derive really top draw, attentive and knowledgable.

The owners a nice couple who work hard to delivery a great night out... Well done both .

Top tip.... Book a table inside... The road is quite noisy with no view to admire... The restaurant has a nice ambiance and is decorated to a high standard with air conditioning throughout.

“Top Class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

We ate at Chapter 1 in July 2014 and were very impressed with the professionalism and training of the the waiting staff. We wrote on their facebook page this review.

Chapter One was recommended by Lorraine who has two very successful restaurants the Papaya Tree and Cellar Door in Playa Flamenca Commerical Centre. Chapter One is in La Zenia ( opp taxi rank). So we went for first time 2nd July Not only found the food of a very high standard,the waiting team were some of the most professional and knowledgable staff we have come across in recent months. . Check out this " Fairground Attraction " dessert with toffee apples- ice cream cone & marshmallow brownie very creative.
We highly recommend this restaurant, for that "Special " dining experience

“Birthday treat! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from 5 nights in La Zenia. 10 of us ate here to celebrate my wife's birthday after a local recommendation. We were looked after from start to finish. This maybe one if the more expensive restaurants in the area but well worth it. Thank you Chapter One.

“Fabuloso ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I am Spainish with an Engish husband and can honestly say that this was the best meal I have had in the area. The service was fantastic from arrival until postre. The waitress recommended al wine for man course which could not have been better and mi fish mains was percectly cooked. My husband had the steak and left nothing. Please be sure to try the deserts because they were out of this World. You must try this restaurante it is the best. Hay una chica que habla español y la comida es superior en la zona, tampoco es caro por la calidad de comida y volveré pronto. EXCELENTE

Had the two course set menu for 14.95, it was lovely. Couldn't fault it. Great value. Also really enjoyed the wine which the waitress recommended.
