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.
Still my favorite restaurant in Chester for a special meal - good, robust cooking with quality ingredients. The Iberico pork paella is warming, earthy winter food, and the gordal olives are the best in Chester.
So lovely to be back at JB :)
The food was unbelievably good. Hands down the best roast I have ever had. Great atmosphere and the waitresses were really helpful, attentive and friendly.
Lovely friendly vibe with great food and drink. A good local restaurant that me and my husband visit several times a year. Well worth a visit We had the beef Sunday Lunch yesterday. Really tasty and well presented. The staff are always warm and friendly.
Have visited several times before but felt let down by the menu choice and also the quality of the food served.
Lovely food and stunning wines as always. Perfect level of service, cheery and always around for anything you need without being intrusive. JoBen always delivers!
More limited menu but still good food and service and importantly at this strange time, it felt a safe environment.
The staff were absolutely amazing with our children aged 7 and 8 - thank you. The food and drink was fab as well of course!
Great little find. Superb food!
Fantastic food & service as always. Thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and I look forward to visiting again. Thank you to all the staff who did their job perfectly.
Very nice atmosphere and food.
Very pleasant evening at your restaurant last night.
Delightful food and excellent service
I have been eating at JBs since they opened. It is my very favourite restaurant and would always be my first choice. Food, drink, service is all impeccable. Recently I have been using 'JBs At Home' and am thankful that I have had this option.
Thank you for making my daughter’s 18th birthday so special.
We have been coming to JB's for many years, and have used the restaurant as a venue for many family and friend celebrations. We think that it may have gone off the boil a little at the moment. This could of course be attributable to the pandemic. However the range and choice of meals0 both starters and mains- is much more limited than it used to be. My starter on Saturday was simply a plate of meat, and the main courses seem to rely heavily on paella. We did mention this to our server. Will still be coming to JBs however
Amazing food and service as always. This is why Joseph Benjamin is our favourite restaurant, it never disappoints.
Great atmosphere, lovely food and gorgeous service. Couldn’t ask for more. Thanks x
Lovely restaurant, best roast I’ve had in AGES!
Gorgeous food, gorgeous wine, excellent and attentive staff. Best restaurant in chester!
We had a brilliant evening. Delicious food and great service. The paella was gorgeous and the Basque burnt cheesecake was excellent! Looking forward to visiting again.
Food is great, one of the best places to eat in Chester!
