Amazing cocktail to start. Decor is oppressive and dark, reminiscent of the 70s. Food was elaborately presented and a generous portion but rather bland. Fish was overcooked. Desert was excellent. In the final reckoning a bill of USD 250 was about 40% too high.

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Beautiful surroundings, amazing food and the chef came out to meet his customers at the end of dinner service. Tiramisu was to die for but the chef gave us the recipe. Doubt it will taste the same back in the U.K. but will give it a go. A dining must on the west coast... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we were so disappointed. I ordered the smoked salmon with avocado and the avocado was pureed and then little spots put on plate as if to decorate! Very little taste. I then had the ravioli which was lovely but overpriced for how much you actually got. The decor is pretty ordinary and relies... More

We visited Daphnes for dinner as couple. The staff were good and attentive just really disappointed with the menu. What was delivered was OK but the chef and management need to work hard to be considered top quality like so many great restaurants on the island. We probably would go back but the food offering needs improving.

Great for early doors sundowners, the restaurant looks lovely however the food and the service is not great all of the time it's pot luck. Tides is the same price but far superior in all aspects. Worth a try though!

We went to Daphne's as a party of six. Sadly it is just not up to it. We went last year and enjoyed a super evening, so good we went twice but this year, oh woe! The lady "greeter" was fine and we were rapidly shown to a table in a half empty restaurant. The servers showed little interest in... More

Previous visits had need a real treat with great food and service, but both visits on this were really disappointing. Disinterested staff and bland food. The restaurant seemed uncared for like a discarded friend. Quite sad really.

Visited twice during our holiday - must have been impressed on the first visit ! Lovely evening was had although drinks order was a little slow when we first arrived. Great ocean view and atmosphere in the restaurant. Good food and wine selection -we understood that the new chef was changing the menu the week after we were there, hopefully... More

We visited Daphnes last night very apprehensive after reading so many negative comments. We were greeted warmly and seated in a lovely table overlooking the ocean. All the staff were very friendly throughout the meal. We chose from the menu which had some lovely dishes on it. Unfortunately the waiter ordered the wrong dish but this was soon put right... More

Had a really lovely dinner and experience last night. We arrived early and had a drink in the bar area - 2 beers for 1 as it was still happy hour. We went though to a great table spot overlooking the beach. Waiters were attentive but not over the top. They took our daughters order first whilst we were still... More
