Return visit to this restaurant. Good food and pleasant service. Not sure about the new open plan decor. Also there is still dark wood everywhere.

We went here for an evening meal and we're not disappointed. The service was slightly slow but it"s a holiday after all! I recommend the lobster salad starter. Suggest you book before you arrive in order to secure a table with a view of the sea

Staying nearby - this is 2 years in a row we had to dine at Daphnes. Great beach views and very well prepared and presented meals. I forgot that casual elegance meant no flip flops for guys - but they looked the other way and let us dine. All 5 of us had great meals - not a one was... More

This was our first dinner out on our 1 week holiday, we arrived and they didn't have our booking but quickly rectified this. We had a cocktail first then were taken to our waterside table. I ordered the lobster linguine which was very yummy. My boyfriend had bartered prawns & calamari which was nothing special and for 78BBD he was... More

Nice "Italian" Restaurant on the beach. If you feel for a " casual" yet pretending to be some kind of elegant dinner on the beach it is the right place. Service was excellent and waiters very attentive. Average Italian food. They could do much better in the setting/ decoration of the table. Not cheap.

We had a lovely meal at Daphne's, I had a risotto to start followed by scallops which were both delicious. We enjoyed the drinks also, our only criticism was that the drinks took a very long time to arrive however we do appreciate the restaurant was very busy. A lovely atmosphere and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming.

Daphne's is set on the beach and therefore has a wonderful outlook. Unfortunately the setting is not met equally by the menu. This is not to say the food was bad it was just uninspiring compared to other restaurants on the island. Staff are pleasant enough but unfortunately alongside the food we encountered a quiet evening and therefore there was... More

After many visits to Barbados we visited the much hyped Daphne's for dinner and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived the service could not be faulted. The staff were very friendly and seated us at a table near the waters edge so we watched the sun go down. Always a pleasant way to start the evening. The... More

Unfriendly reception, wrong meal brought out and salad unwashed - basic errors. Very expensive for poor quality service and food.

The restaurant is very nice! My husband and I went there for dinner while we were staying at the Tamarind hotel next door. The food was excellent. I had mahi mahi canneloni and a rocket parmesan salad. The service was excellent! I am handicapped and use an electric scooter. The restaurant had a portable ramp so that I was able... More
