Probably the best meal I have ever had. The food was absolutely amazing, presentation was excellent and the service was excellent as well.

This was the second time that my wife and I have been to the restaurant. One is always concerned that the second visit will disappoint. Any misgivings totally disappeared as soon as we were greeted by the wonderful Anna who is undoubtedly very good at her job. Martin the genial Maitre'd made us even more relaxed with his easy going... More

A party of us visited Chapter One in early October to celebrate my mothers birthday. Have to say it was one of the most enjoyable evenings i can remember. From the ambiance the staff and the food, everything was just perfect. The quality of service is of particular note as it its thoroughly professional and attentive, but without being overbearing...

Chapter One is the perfect venue for an occasion or celebration. The staff are so friendly and chatty they really want to engage with the customers and help them to understand the menu and the produce. The food is delicious, we had a group of seven and so we got to review almost every dish on offer and there wasn't... More

A highly rated restaurant that exceeded its reputation. Exceptional food, friendly and attentive staff and a fantastic sommelier in charge of a wonderful wine list. We visited recently for a lunch tasting menu, and couldn't say a bad word about the restaurant. From our arrival, everything was of the highest standard. After a glass of wonderful champagne in the bar,... More

It has received a Michelin Star. And it deserves it. Everything about it has class. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave.

I was taken here for the pre-theatre menu and when you visit somewhere like Chapter One it comes with expectations. From the greeting at the door to the moment we left the service was exceptional and we were made to feel like VIP's. The food choice for a restricted menu was good, but I just didn't get the explosion of... More

This was our first Michelin star dining experience so we chose the lunchtime taster menu. 7 courses of beautifully prepared taste sensations. Each was exquisitely presented and described in detail by the attentive staff. All the staff were lovely including the chef who came to talk to us whilst we were dining. In the UK you'd expect to pay at... More

For an exceptional dining experience, Chapter One is not to be missed. Expensive yes. Bucket list restaurant - definite yes. Everything about this dining experience is worth it. Set in the former Jamison residence, the decor is beautiful. The Connamara marble at the reception is so exquisite it alone is worth the price of admission. Service - perfect! Food-wise, I... More
