Whilst the service was excellent, the meal was average at best and certainly overpriced. It was interesting that on potentially a busy evening, the restaurant was less than half full. We will not be returning.

Daphne's, one of Barbados' top restaurants, reflects the vibrance and style of its famous sister establishment, Daphne's of London. The menu, based on classic Italian favourites, boasts the inspired epicurean signature of Milan-born Chef Michele Blasi in an assortment of island-inspired seasonal dishes for even the most discerning of tastes. This is complemented by an extensive list of Italian, New World and classical French wines. For a fabulous seaside dinner, try one of our artisanal pastas paired with a cold bottle of chablis. Management and staff, all excellent hosts, will welcome you to this elegant beachside eatery that offers al fresco and covered dining in an amiable atmosphere.
