About Joseph Benjamin
Joseph Benjamin is a popular, award-winning Chester restaurant located next to the historic city walls.
The restaurant has been awarded a Michelin Guide ‘Bib Gourmand’ each year since 2012.
We love everything about this place. My favourite restaurant in Chester! Wonderful menu! High standards, attention to detail and quality would be the best description for everything.
Dishes had excellent flavour combinations. Will definitely be returning.
Lovely place. One of the best in Chester.
Toilets could be cleaner. Undetermined liquid on floor in gents.
Pre-theatre dinner. Timing was just right. The staff were welcoming and suggestions regarding food and wine choice were spot on. Lovely people. Thank you.
This was a first visit and a really lovely discovery. The welcome and smells when we walked in for lunch were fantastic and an indicator of the experience to come. We were served delicious, imaginative food by people who clearly cared that we enjoyed everything we ate. Great place.
Lovely friendly restaurant with a fantastic menu, excellent food quality and service to match. Have been before and will definitely be back again!
We were so impressed with every aspect. Food, menu, service, professionalism, vibe. Already telling friends how good you are. Thanks
The menu was very limited and expensive for lunchtime. We opted for the special . Chicken leg on mustard mash with gravy, and a glsss of wine. Very uninspiring...overall really disappointed:(
A very enjoyable first visit. We'll be back!
it is the most excellent restaurant and the flavours in the different dishes are fascinating to try and to enjoy.
Outstanding quality cooking and ingredients. Very friendly staff and eclectic locally sourced food and drink menu.
Lovely food, Great service!!
All dishes were lovely. Service from Rebekah was very helpful and friendly. Thank you - we will be back!
Really great celebratory meal. The restaurant was full and atmosphere good . Food was excellent as was the service.Highly recommended.
Haven't been for a while but still as good
Always delighted by the exceptional quality of the menu and wine list. Never disappointed by the service. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy the evening.
Super interesting flavours and unexpected combinations with informal but attentive service. Great atmosphere and fair prices. Have been before and will be back
Good food, limited selection.
You have everything just right! The food was superb and the staff and service exemplary. The birthday cake was a great surprise and delicious. Thank you
Lamb sweetbread dish to start was excellent, sea bream dish and belly pork mains were both fab, neither of us fancied anything off the dessert menu which was disappointing, perhaps some more indulgent choices required on the menu, we will see you in the new year.
I really enjoyed eating at your restaurant. The sea bass was delicious , beautifully cooked and meaty - not like the thin fillets I have had elsewhere. The ice cream dessert with coffee and sherry was a real treat, and the sherry tasted divine! The staff were polite, pleasant and very helpful. I had a great lunch with my friend and will return next time I am in Chester.
This was our first visit to Joseph Benjamin and we will have no hesitation in returning to dine whenever we visit the city. Service was prompt, efficient and courteous within a convivial atmosphere free from noisy fellow diners or distractions. Menu options were pleasingly limited in number, suggesting a concern with the provision of fresh food produce rather than pages of options simply decanted from the freezer. If we had one concern or criticism however, this would be that for our tastes, the dishes - and my main in particular with its accompaniment of Puy lentils - were rather over seasoned with salt.
