Food is amazing, service is great and people there are so nice Try the lobster if available, or the chicken breast which is so tender Scallops are also delicious

EUR140 for two (no tip requested - given in cash) All major credit cards accepted *** (comfortable modern) Spring for the second chapter: We opt'd for the five course chef's menu (over the three course) with wine pairings. We started outside in the patio area but asked to be moved indoors midway and they... More

After 5 year's we were back on Malta. We did remember a nice restaurant that was in the start-up phase at that time: Chapter One. We were amazed about the high quality and really good service! Tonight we did find out there is a new Italian management and new chef since April this year. A little surprise, but we decided... More

Fantastic New Zealand lamb and Australian sirloin. Exceptionally prepared. I would visit again. The staff were very friendly and there was a good wine list.

We walked past this restaurant on a previous evening and decided not to dine here as the restaurant was quite empty. After reading the reviews, we decided to dine on our last evening in Malta. Wow, the food and service is exceptional, the owners ensure this by giving full care and attention to customers. The fine dining dishes are all... More

My family and I ate at this restaurant on our third day and Malta and were really impressed with both the food and the service. My mum is wheat, gluten and dairy intolerant, which we notified them of as we booked. They had prepared gluten free bread for her and were able to say which meals she would be able... More

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.
