Lovely night but service so slow. Went in at 6.30 as off to cinema but in the end at 8.45 still hadn't been shown the dessert menu so left. Food good, lacking in bread. No sparkling wine or champagne. Few niggles that put me off going back. Thank you for the key ring that was a lovely touch.

Me and my sister fancied something different from the usual chains of restaurants and had passed daphnes a few times. Booked up for 7pm and was greeted by our very friendly waiter. He explained the dishes and made his recommendations and saw some wonderful food come out of the kitchen to the other customers tables! We had olives and a... More

I went to Daphne last night with my family. From what we could gather, this Turkish restaurant is run predominantly by a husband and wife team. They are doing an excellent job - the food was delicious and we felt very welcome. As we hadn't had Turkish cuisine before, the owner went through each item, explaining what they were and... More

Visited after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor. Also location was ideal as close to Strozzi Palace. The host showed us to a table & was attentive & explained the menu, specials, etc. I had the borek to start & Daphne's lamb guvech for main. Borek was divine. Guvech was very tasty & lamb very tender. My fiancé had the calamar... More

We had been meaning to try this restaurant on many occasions in the past but always pasted it by, which was a big mistake because this is a great little restaurant. The service was very good and general feel was very relaxed. The setting is very traditional and the menu has so many items you will want to try, so... More

We went here in May 2014 for an anniversary meal, as it had been recommended by a friend. It was a quiet evening with only three tables occupied, which was a bit of a shame in terms of the atmosphere. The staff (believe it was the owner) were incredibly attentive, explaining the menu and dishes at great length as well.... More

Ate there last night as part of a weekend away in Cheltenham. Discovered it by accident while browsing trip advisor and enjoyed one of the best eating experiences we'd had in ages. Between us we had the mussels and mixed meze for starters then a fish course and the mixed grill for the mains. The mixed grill was tasty without... More

Tuesday night Just passing through Cheltenham & stumbled across this restaurant. Having previously visited Turkey & enjoyed the cuisine we thought we'd give it a whirl. What can I say... everything is completely authentic and is just as if you are actually in Turkey. The food is delicious, I had the house special lamb dish and my wife the house... More

Visited Daphne's to celebrate my daughters exam results and had the best fillet steak I have ever had. Lovely calamari starter, delicious house red and the usual friendly service. Lovely family-run restaurant with excellent food. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Fabulous food and service here. My family were visiting and I thought this would be a nice place to take them. I wasn't let down as it was, as usual, superb food and service. There was a slight wait with food coming out but it is worth the wait. Highly recommended.
