SquareMeal Review of Daphne

A culinary landmark in Camden Town for decades, it’s hard to resist the homespun charm of this bona fide backstreet taverna, where you wish the darling waiters were your long-lost uncles. Although it was given a refit back in 2014, Daphne is still old school to the hilt, with colourful trinkets, tiled floors and faded black and white photos of Cyprus setting the scene for some proper family-style food. Mezze plates of taramasalata, kalamari, spanakopita, char-grilled loukanika sausages and louvi (black-eyed beans, spinach and onions cooked in olive oil) pave the way for bigger dishes of pork souvlaki, beef stifado or sheftalia (rolled minced pork with onions, parsley and spices). Daily specials include an abundance of fresh fish (we’d recommend ordering the grilled swordfish steak if it’s available) and there’s sticky sweet baklava to finish. A small roof terrace beckons on summer nights.
