"EXCELLENT"

A neighbourhood bolthole and gastronomic destination rolled into one, Daphne’s is the very personification of its Kensington clientele – handsome, refined and utterly assured. From the dark-pink marble bar with its green leather stools to the European modern art and baroque conservatory for private dining, this space resembles a tasteful and expensively clad Italian townhouse, complete with classic Jags and idling chauffeurs parked outside the concertina doors. The kitchen specialises in bold regional flavours: creamy burrata with intense cherry tomatoes and grilled focaccia; octopus carpaccio with crispy soft-shell crab; pappardelle with wild boar ragù; roast rump of lamb with caponata and salsa verde; seared slabs of tuna atop sweet peperonata. For dessert, the strawberry gelato is guaranteed to clear any rainclouds away. As you’d expect from Caprice Holdings, flawless and personable service is a given, while waiters “with a good sense of humour” take pleasure in steering drinkers through the exhaustive Italian wine list.

It must be 15 years since I last ate at Daphne's, and I was very pleasantly surprised that nothing has really changed, and I mean that as a positive. I just wish there was an equivalent in NW London! We dined on creamy burrata and sweet tomatoes, salmon and yellowtail sashimi, lobster spaghetti and meatballs and zuchini, all well executed, unfussy and delicious. I will make the trip to SW London again soon.

Great food and atmosphere,although perhaps the 'piped' piano playing was a bit loud - we were sat right next to it. The waiters had a good sense of humour which is always a plus.

Excellent restaurant which seems to get better on every visit. Great menu, tremendous wine selection - we appreciate a good restaurant in this part of town and this is up there with the best of them!
