Daphne in Greek mythology was the daughter of the river god, Peneius, who spurned the advances of the lustful Apollo who tried to ravish her.
Now her name adorns the popular Greek Cypriot restaurant started in November 1984 and continues to be run by the Lymbouri family.
It is a smart, comfortable and cozy restaurant with a relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere, welcoming and friendly with its walls full of photographs depicting life from late 19th Century, in Cyprus.
In addition to a lengthy menu, featuring charcoal grills and fresh fish, Daphne has a number of speciality dishes to choose from every day.
Fully licensed, Daphne has a respectable reasonably price wine list, spanning Greece, Cyprus, France and the New World.

Amazing food and people
This was one of the best restaurants in London so far! Nikolas (not sure if that’s is spelled right), our waitress, was very calm and very nice with us. The food was amazing, we chose The 3 course menu for two people which we thought is to cheap for the amount and quality of the food. Absolutely well done!.
Ambience service food all excellent and a great choice of food. Had both a set lunch here and dinner. Outstanding for each, no wonder it’s outlasted most other Camden restaurants. Perfectly clean lavatory room with some interesting exhibits.
Old school neighbourhood restaurant
Love this place. Hasn’t changed in years and like a little slice of my childhood. Classic Greek family run restaurant. Friendly and relaxed, small and intimate. Food is traditional and unfussy and tasty. Retsina and coffee are great.
