Vast Menu - something for everyone,

Great mid-priced restaurant. Loads of choice - Don't get put off if you don't like spicy food I had fillet steak with a Dianne sauce - it was excellent, the vegetables that came with it were so tasty. They had lots of choice for vegetarians too (neither me or my husband are vegetarian so can't... read more

First time at Chesters and absolutely loved it. The waitress took time to recommend dishes and talk to is about the spice content of the food. The mushroom starter was one of the nicest things I've ever eaten! Will definately be returning!

Got in to Chesters shortly before the food service was due to close last night, but despite this the staff were all really friendly, patient and helpful, and the food was delicious! I went with two meat eaters, one vegetarian, and I am vegan. We all had a tough time choosing from the many great-sounding options. I ended up getting... More

Went here for lunch with my husband just before Christmas and normally I have the same thing (Catalan chicken) but I decided to have the lamb chilli with sweet potato fries which was spicier than I'm used to (I'm a bit of a wuss) but it was amazing. The chilli had lamb chunks rather than mince making it more like... More

I enjoyed it! The food needs to start moving on a bit though - it hasn't changed in the three years I've been visiting. The condiments and cheeses, etc would be better if they'd been made in the restaurant. It is not outstanding but the food is enjoyable, a little unusual and served in a pleasant environment. The staff did... More

So we had a lovely evening in this popular and very busy eatery. We had booked for 9pm and the place was still full when we left. Starters and mains were very authentic and tasted amazing. Pudding was extremely disappointing a small portion of custard and a cheap microwaved toffee sponge for nearly a fiver!!! We had a good bottle... More

Chester's is my favourite place to go in the city centre! It's so original and the food is gorgeous. There is food for all sorts of dietary needs and something for everyone! Really delicious food!
