About Daphne's

Daphne's appeal lies not only in its seasonal cooking, but also its natural warmth and effortless Italian charm. The elegant surrounds of the Daphne’s conservatory can accommodate up to 40 guests for a private lunch or dinner and is licensed to host wedding or civil ceremonies. In summer, the bright conservatory creates an al fresco feel; in winter a blazing fire in the open range turns it into an intimate retreat.

Located in Brompton Cross between Chelsea and South Kensington, it is an ideal spot for lunch after shopping in nearby Knightsbridge or King's Road. The Natural History Museum, Science Museum, V&A, Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall and Royal Court are also just around the corner.

We arrived 5 min early and waited approx 20min to be seated. Can't complain we booked quite a last min. We were warmly accommodated at the bar and then gently transferred to the table. We took time to order as we couldn't stop discussing something, server was patient and non pushy. Service throughout was very discreet and professional, perfect for a date night! I would have liked my truffle tagliatele slightly more flavourable maybe slightly creamier, that's the only thus, everything else excellent and usual! 👌

Very good and lovely service. I celebrated my daughter being one month.
I loved the fact they were child friendly as I find difficult to find nice restaurants accepting young babies for dinner, so this was perfect

Yet another of Mr. Richard Carings' excellent dining experiences. Casual yet with an air of very expensive, great food with a great and pleasing menu. Something for every taste. Service is wonderful.
For the romantics ask for a table in the conservatory close to the fire.
The set lunch is well priced and portions are excellent.
As with most restaurants the cost will roughly double your expectation when wine and coffee is added. If on a budget aim for set lunch, tap water and wine by the glass.
One of my favourite lunch time haunts but equally gorgeous for dinner.

Booked for my parents anniversary and they were so accommodating, providing them with the little surprises I’d requested for them such as the bubbles at the start of the meal and finish with a decorated ‘happy anniversary’ desert plate. Staff are wonderful and the food is always great. Perfect for any occasion

Daphne's continues to deliver exceptional food, exceptional well. Not the cheapest, but worth it. In my opinion, its one of Londons best dining rooms, both homely and comfortable, but chic at the same time.

From the first cocktail, a fabulous tequila concoction to the desert, the food was excellent and the service impeccable. Highly recommend this quant yet high-end spot. The linguini vongole was a winner-which is my litmus for quality Italian.

DAPHNE'S is ALWAYS a delightful experience and a delicious treat! The service and personal attention to each client are exceptional. I do not know how they can possibly provide the outstanding degree of excellence, but they do! DAPHNE'S is a true favourite!
