Fabulous three course meal at this relaxed authentic Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant.

Will definitely be back to sample the rest of the menu!

I have lived in Cheltenham for a number of years and will admit to walking past Daphne on numerous occasions without considering giving it a go. I was looking for somewhere to go for dinner with my parents and my in-laws and someone recommended I try Daphne. I looked at the menu and at the other reviews on Trip advisor... More

Myself and my partner went here after looking at reviews on Trip advisor and we were not disappointed! The calamari starter was delicious as was the tomato soup. The mixed grills were excellent, possibly could be served with tsatsiki or something similar. The desserts were very good, however we felt slightly overpriced. We were presented with good luck charms at... More

So glad we took the advice of previous visitors and chose Daphne for lunch. Delicious, fresh and freshly prepared food - lunch from very reasonable set menu. We chose the griddled courgettes , bulgar wheat salad and terrific lamb kofta. Overheard somebody who had loved their chicken risotto! You probably can't go wrong, whatever you choose. Such a warm welcome,... More

Despite being tucked away from the main areas of Cheltenham and seemingly very quiet, do not be fooled... this gives the great chef more time to prepare your meal without a hundred orders on the go. And the food is great and tasty Turkish. They also have a price fixe lunch menu.

My partner and I had a fabulous meal here. I'd heard good reviews about the place but was slightly dubious when we went in as it has the décor of greasy spoon. All of my doubts melted away when the food was brought, I had a veggie aubergine dish; it couldn't have more delicious, I don't have the vocab to... More

My husband decided to visit Daphne's at short notice and we were not disappointed! The service was attentive and the waiter had good knowledge of the menu. We had starter of olives and grilled cheese. Both were delicious! Mains of the sea bass special and the mixed grille did not disappoint either. The mixed of chicken and lamb was cooked... More

Staff were very nice and accommodating of our needs. The place has a lovely atmosphere. The food felt authentic and typical Turkish. Particularly liked the calamari starters! We will definitely go again!

Just had lunch there with my son. Excellent food, excellent service and excellent value for money. Living in Cheltenham, I have visited many restaurants in the town and can honestly say this is now one of my favourites. Will definitely dine there again.
