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.

Terrific spot for a languid lunch or a dinner date. Super ambience, good food, nice eclectic choice of art on the walls - and the best spot to watch a well-heeled Chelsea crowd in full flow!

Though I like Daphne’s a lot, this time the food was very average. Waiters pouring the wine constantly, as if to force you to a second bottle. Outside area ambience very poor 😢

The service, food and ambience is consistently good at Daphnes. This restaurant is always full with families, couples and friends at lunchtimes on the weekend. The atmosphere is high end without being stuffy. The waiting staff are excellent, friendly and knowledgeable and the service is quick.

We've never had a bad experience at Daphne's that is why we continue on going time after time. The ingredients are always of exceptional quality, service and attention is just en pointe and the choices of dishes on the menu is always so difficult to decide upon! This will always be one of my favourite restaurants.

We eat at Daphne's often. Uncharacteristically, my main course (fish) arrived cold (which I did not send back but mentioned to the server). Also, the seating was cramped on this occasion, not necessary since the mid-section and the entire back of the restaurant was available. I asked for another table when we first sat down, but they said nothing else was available even though throughout lunch, the restaurant was half empty. This is unusual for Daphne's, as it is the only bad experience I have had there. I guess everyone deserves an off-day.

Took my girlfriend and 2 10 year olds. We wanted a starter and the kids are young and a bit fussy so we asked if the chef could just do garlic bread for them as we fancied the tuna and scallops. We were told it wasn’t possible twice so in the end I had to get the manager and explain to him if his chef couldn’t put garlic and butter on a piece of foccacia then it was a real concern. Just spoiled the whole relationship - we weren’t asking for much and would never get that kind of resistance at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant.

I normally love Daphne’s but although our starters were excellent (we had the truffle pasta), our mains were disappointing. But mostly we were seated in the ‘mezzanine’ space between the front and back dining halls which lacked atmosphere. It was a slightly disappointing evening for such an elegant place.

One of our 3 best restaurants in London. Every time is a treat. Consistently good. It’s feels like a personal dining room. This is how institutions are made.
