Welcome to Daphne’s

A Chelsea institution offering a menu of seasonal Italian dishes

Designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, neighbourhood favourite Daphne’s continues to shine like a beacon amid the Chelsea restaurant scene, nestling amongst the beautiful Brompton Cross shops including J Crew, Joseph, Chanel and the Conran Shop. The Italian restaurant, bar and conservatory (private room) are vibrant and inviting and have been designed with the colour palettes of Italy firmly in mind, offering an ever-changing a la carte menu available for lunch and dinner.

General Manager Gabriele Esposito and his experienced team ensure that Mediterranean restaurant Daphne's appeal lies not only in its seasonal cooking of Italian food, but also its natural warmth and effortless Italian charm, making it a favourite amongst the residents of South Kensington and visitors from further afield.

The elegant surroundings of the Daphne’s conservatory can accommodate up to 40 guests for a private lunch or dinner, or up to 50 for a standing cocktail reception with especially created seasonal menus for your private event. Since 2016, dogs have been warmly welcomed into the restaurant's conservatory to join their families on delicious lunch dates.
