What is it?
Arguably one of London’s most beautiful private dining rooms, Daphne’s is as every bit as stunning and luxurious as its neighbourhood in Chelsea. Known for its pastel colour palettes and spectacular Italian cuisine, it’s a haven for elegant diners.

Where is it?
Daphne’s lies between South Kensington and Chelsea at Brompton Cross area. Slightly nearer to South Kensington tube station, but still under 15-minutes’ walk to Sloane Square station. In one of London’s most exclusive boroughs which is filled with world-class restaurants and bars, here Daphne’s fits right in.

Why we love it?
It is named after a theatre agent Daphne Rye, who is rumoured to have discovered Richard Burton which makes sense as like the restaurant’s name sake, Daphne’s has always been hugely popular with celebrities.

The alfresco stylings of this restaurant have been designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Beautifully enchanting, at Daphne’s you always get the sense you are coming home.

How it’s private dining works?
Head to Daphne’s conservatory for the bright and beautiful private dining space. Mirrors are used to make the space even bigger than it is. Daphne’s private dining room can seat up to 40 guests for a private lunch or dinner.

An alfresco feel is incorporated into the space as Daphne’s conservatory has a retractable roof, which can be used for a summer party or, in the winter enjoy a roaring fire for an intimate occasion. Pastel tones are used throughout the space and with fresh floral decorations.
