“Eat here if you're on a diet. No seriously portions are tiny.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Maybe we got them on a stingy evening but the portions were laughable as was the quality. My partner had the half order of chicken souvlaki and I had the same but with prawns. Out comes a tiny Greek salad in a little square bowl, less than a cup of rice with noticeably pre-frozen soggy peas and carrots interspersed, half a potato and a measly skewer of the chicken or prawns. A thimble sized cup of tzaziki accompanied this concerto of poor value. God help them if I'd ordered the full portion. When you ask these kind of prices (and I know we can't mention pricing here so go look at their menu online) you need to either up the quality or dumb down the cost. This was shopping mall souvlaki if I've ever seen it. Servers were great and atmosphere so so. Greek restaurants can be studies either in very very good or really really bad depending on which small town you stumble on them in. This one, despite the high ratings leaves much to be desired in the souvlaki department. Didn't try the whole menu so still go and be the judge yourself. If you're fifty dollars lighter when you leave and feel you've been robbed, then you were.

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

the food was good, steak sandwich and a spinach salad with candied walnuts, dates, goat cheese, artichokes and more - clean, great service - would have said excellent except it was a wee bit on the warm side in the restaurant as no airconditioning

“Saturday's meal was so good we went back on Sunday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Went in on Saturday evening and had the calamari dinner and my girlfriend had the very large spinach salad. After sampling each others dinners, she wanted to come back the next night to try the calamari for herself.
After a very long day of biking we ended up back there for an early dinner after missing lunch. We ended up splitting the Greek platter for two. Calamari, two souvlaki skewers, two lamb chops, moussaka, spanakopita and veggies - all very tasty!!

“Greek that produces a smile!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Daphne's specializes in Greek food but also offers a great steak selection. My favourite is their rib steak with blue cheese sauce. Their Moussaka is to die for as is their Lamb Shank, they serve a great Greek salad. The atmosphere is intimate and we have gone to this restaurant many times for special occasions and so far we have never been disappointed. The staff go all out to make your dining experience a happy one. I usually have a slice of their delicious cheesecake for dessert. Should mention they have excellent pizza for children who wish simpler fare. One of the best restaurants on the Sunshine Coast.
