“GREAT A. GREAT L. GREAT O. BUT ABOVE ALL: GREAT F!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Whats that title about? Well, here it is: Great ATMOSPHERE! Great LOCATION! Great OWNER (friendly to all who enter)! But I've given those three greats before, while ending up giving an awful review, due to one missing, vital, most important element, and this place has it.... GREAT FOOD!! Being from Asheville, NC, the land of chefs on every corner, I readily recognized that this place has a great chef(s). The presentation and taste are all there. The waitress informed us the vegetables were freshly made in house that day. You can't go wrong eating here. One thing worth noting: the atmosphere is loud, with music that definitely caters to the young crowd, although most of us eating there this night, were over 50 for certain. If you desire easy listening music while you eat, don't venture here. However, if you desire to feel a decade younger than you are, then this may be your ticket. Nice touch with red lighting encompassing the bar along with several televisions so I could catch Monday Night Football! After traveling 55 countries, this will be another one that gets filed in my box titled "An Accidental Find of a Jewel on Hilton Head". Enjoy.

“Hidden Treasure on Coligny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Daniel's offers the perfect mix of great atmosphere, amazing service and FANTASTIC food! From the hand stuffed tortellini to the rack of New Zealand lamb cooked to perfection with cinnamon sticks...every bite is carefully planned and executed with perfection. The wine and liquor selection rates with some of the most extensive I have ever seen. Daniel's is the one place on HHI you can't afford to miss!!!!

“Tapas at it's best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012


While vacationing we love to have new and interesting dining experiences and Daniel's did not disappoint. You would never know it from the outside but it is a fun, eclectic place with amazing food. Don't let previous reviews about the music deter you; it has been toned down. We went on a Monday night and sat at the bar during happy hour for the "bogo" tapas from 4:30-6:30. The food was amazing and portions plentiful. The wines were a steal at $5.00 and our bartender, Chris,knowledgeable and fun. By Friday we just had to return to try more of the expansive menu of little plates. We had four different dishes and were thrilled with each. This will be a definite "go to" restaurant when we return. Thanks Kefir!!!!!

“Great Tapas & diverse menu with modern, but warm decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Buried in the back of a touristy shopping center on the beach, Daniels has a great menu from all over the world with tapa size servings and good service. When we were there in off season, it was almost empty on a weeknight, but we understand from friends that it is slammed most the time. We would recommend it for couples or an adult group that wants a casual setting and the chance to mix a lot of different foods that are freshly made. We had a soup from the Americas and lamb sliders from Europe....A fun evening!
