About Chapter One Restaurant and Bar

Dine in timber and glass modern Balinese architecture overlooking the pool at Chapter One Restaurant and Bar on Bale Drive in Port Douglas. Nestled inside Niramaya Villas with stunning views of surrounding gardens, Chapter One has a relaxed, chilled out feel directly in keeping with the tropical Far North lifestyle and culture. Take a seat inside among dark wood furniture with natural light pouring through floor to ceiling French doors, or soak up sunshine and balmy breezes alfresco while contemplating an ever-evolving seasonal menu. Awaken the senses and palate with starters like char-grilled octopus with asparagus, hummus, pickled tomatoes, onion ash and emulsion, before being enticed by lamb rump, fennel fondant, infused cucumber, black garlic puree, crushed cashews and onion pakora.
