“Night out in Cheltenham with friends”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This a fantastic restaurant - the decor makes you feel like you could be in the Med - apart from the view of beautiful Georgian architecture outside!
We were made to feel welcome from the off-set and nothing was too much trouble for the owner, who explained in detail, many of the dishes and made recommendations.

The food was excellent and was good value for money.

Came on recommendation and I will definitely recommend to others!

“Great Food, Lovely Place”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

5 friends met in Cheltenham for the w/e to celebrate our 50th birthdays and chose this restaurant after reading about iit on here. We were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly. The food was wonderful, all five of us really enjoyed our meals. If you visit or live in Cheltenham you must eat here. The little present at the end was a lovely touch.

“Lovely evening.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We wanted to try somewhere different in Cheltenham with different food and certainly weren't disappointed. We were made to feel really welcome by all of the staff in this very homely place. Okan the waiter was so sweet and went to a lot of trouble to explain the menu to us and attend to our requests. The food was presented well and had lots of lovely different tastes. Would recommend for anyone wanting a lovely relaxing evening.

“Fab, friendly and great food”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We loved this restaurant. The waiter was top drawer and explained the choice of food from the menu totally !!
The food from the starter to the desert was excellent and I loved the lamb shish !!
They even had Turkish Efes beer on draught which complimented the food extremely well.
The atmosphere was great and my wife and I loved the style of the restaurant, all the staff were lovely. I'll DEFINATELY recommend this little gem in Cheltenham !!!!

“Like eating a good friends home”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I just finished dinner at Daphne on Cheltenham Gloucestershire UK fantastic meal from the Calamari to the chocolate mints with Turkish coffee.
I ordered the Sea Bass and it and the white sauce was perfection on a plate.
The Turkish beer and the desert was great the waiter was so friendly you would have thought he knew us our whole life. He gave great suggestions for entrees and drinks.
The food was overly spiced or salted too much. It was as if I hade prepared it.
The fish was flaky and moose not over cooked like you find Sea Bass at other places.
The calamari was not rubbery but fresh you could cut it with a fork it was served with veggies in a butter sauce. The desert came with a light coating of ice cream.
The waiter even gave us a couple of complementary small "evil eye" pins with our check at the end of the meal along with birds egg chocolates.
The location was a short walk from our Hotel the Holiday Inn Express. The weather was comfortable cool not wet. It was a joyful meal for all in my party. If you find yourself in Cheltenham you must try the food I this place.
