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 alfresco 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.

Excellent experience from start to finish. The food and service is the benchmark against which I judge other restaurants. Everyone who works here are passionate about what they do and this is obvious for the level of service and the quality of food. I thoroughly recommend Daphne’s as the best of London

We had an absolute lovely lunch here and sitting at the bar counter was great. The wines they offer by the glass and Coravin were terrific. The bread, the food, the wine, the service were all top notch and made for a perfect lunch after visiting Saatchi Gallery. Loved it and will definitely recommend Daphne’s to friends and will most definitely return on our next visit to London.

Fabulous olive oil for dipping delicious bread over great cocktails. Great traditional Italian food expertly served. Enjoyed watching the bar staff making cocktails whilst surveying the Chelsea dining scene. Very good value.

Daphne is a gem! Excellent food and near perfect service in a wonderfully bright space. From starters to entrees to dessert & coffee - nearly flawless. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We love this place - becoming our regular goto for a weekday relaxed dinner. Sitting at the bar you get to enjoy the theatre of the bartender making beautiful cocktails. Dinner and entertainment!

Lovely restaurant with beautiful interior / atmosphere. We sat at the bar, staff were friendly and service was decent. We both had truffle pasta dishes. For the money (£65 per dish), I honestly don't think it was worth it, but I'm not going to say it wasn't good. I have however had better truffle pasta elsewhere for far less. Will return and try something different.
