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.

4.0  Dined 4 days ago

Daphne’s at one time was a favourite until I moved away from the area
So returning after a 5 year break I found that nothing much, but the prices, had changed
The front part of the restaurant where we dined is still intimate and relaxed
The service is good, the food without being amazing is good except for the zucchini Frito which are the best in London
This is a restaurant for special occasions and I hope they will be welcoming me back for many more years

This was my second time at Daphne's, the other being over 10 years ago. This time was just as good as the first, food is incredible, wine choice exceptional and staff could not have done more.

We went in early before a show, so sat down at 5:30 and left at about 7:15. It was obviously quiet but the attention to detail was still spot on.

It's not the cheapest place on earth, but the small touches are worth it, for example, we ordered a starter to share, which is normally 3 scallops, and as they knew we were sharing, they gave us 4 instead - which was nice!

Well worth a visit, but don't go if you're on a budget

A bit of a shambles on the Open Table menu. Had to ask for it despite booking with this option. Having chosen from the Open Table set menu they provided the waiter returned to say that given is the wrong menu and so we had to choose again from a lunch set menu...

A disappointing experience in every way. We got seated in a lovely corner table, only to be told a few minutes later that we'd been seated at the wrong table and someone with a similar last name to ours was to be seated there. We were then moved to a small table near the kitchen door, not ideal with a busy kitchen.

The service started out okay but waned as the night progressed with the last person we interacted with that cleared the table not giving so much as fleeting eye contact, let alone a spoken word. He had an air of indignance which made me feel uncomfortable and questioning all of the positive reviews I'd read before making the booking.

To add insult to an already ailing injury, both of our meals arrived lukewarm. My side of artichokes and tomato was well seasoned and the flavours delicately balanced, however the Dover sole was under seasoned and as aforementioned, borderline cold.

Utterly underwhelming and will not be returning.

Daphne’s is the best Italian restaurant in London bar none - a pedigree since 1964 and deservedly so - molto bene!
