We had a good meal here but it's not the best in the area and to be perfectly honest I'd say it was pricey for what it is, good location and nice staff but the overall experience seemed lacking.More

Yep much preferred Scarlett over the road and Nishi in Holetown. No need for surly service, basking in past reputation

Description
Daphne's, one of Barbados' top restaurants, reflects the vibrance and style of its famous sister establishment, Daphne's of London. The menu, based on classic Italian favourites, boasts the inspired epicurean signature of Milan-born Chef Michele Blasi in an assortment of island-inspired seasonal dishes for even the most discerning of tastes. This is complemented by an extensive list of Italian, New World and classical French wines. For a fabulous seaside dinner, try one of our artisanal pastas paired with a cold bottle of chablis. Management and staff, all excellent hosts, will welcome you to this elegant beachside eatery that offers al fresco and covered dining in an amiable atmosphere.
