A small well furnished restaurant in Chester with really good food and atmosphere. The service was really pleasant and friendly and the prices reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Booking is advised for this popular restaurant in Chester city centre. Decent service and good food. Their burger is very good and there were several delicious sounding fish dishes on the menu. Menu not too extensive, with specials. Shared 2 puds between 5, a very rich chocolate tart.

Love this place, didn't even know it existed until some friends suggested it! The menu (although not extensive) was perfectly put together and everything was delicious. Make sure you book!

Excellent food, staff and olives. I wasn't disappointed by their magnificent Brussel sprouts. Very helpful in making it a special night. Thanks.

nothing very memorable about my meal. Very average for the price. Atmosphere just bordering on the pretentious side.

Visited with a friend for Saturday lunch. The service was friendly and attentive and the the atmosphere was buzzy. The food was gorgeous. We both had the steak bavette salad with pickled beetroot, blue cheese and walnuts. Amazing flavours! A side of wonderful chips( crispy outside and fluffy inside), a shared dessert of Affogato and a glass of good Malbec... More

From the moment we arrived both my mum and myself were made to feel welcome by the friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. Both my mum and myself ordered the Steak Bavette salad this was beautifully cooked and presented. What is more they had not forgotten that due to dietary restrictions I would not be able to have any... More

This place has now become our favourite place to eat when we visit Chester. The menu is broad enough to offer sufficient choice but narrow enough to enable perfect execution. The atmosphere is of a busy lunch establishment but without infringing individual comfort. Staff are excellent, attentive, warm and pleasant. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience.

Came here for dinner with friends, first visit despite being a cestrian. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left everything was absolutely perfect. The food here is amazing, almost too beautiful to eat. Staff know their stuff and pay absolutely attention to every table. Can't wait to bring more friends so they can experience it too.

This was my first visit to Joseph Benjamin, I met friends for lunch. I had heard such good things about this place that I had very high expectations, but to be honest, I was a little disappointed. As far as ambience is concerned, the restaurant is rather plain, and lacking atmosphere. I found the menu rather limited, and I understand... More
