We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed good service and authentic Greek food. Away from the tourist area, but adjacent to Plaza Weyler.

Only came for a drink but staff were lovely and even presented us with a little snack. The place itself is beautifully designed. Great little spot.

This restaurant has a varied menu with delicious Greek dishes. The service is flawless and fast. High chairs are available. There is a small bar where you can drink something before walking to the table. It is quiet and cosy. A tip: if you do not have a big appetite, it is better to skip the entrances ;-) A perfect...

We had dinner here, and it was really good! Quiet and cute little restaurant, with amazing food, far away from the pushy tourist places. The waitress lady did not speak much English, but this was not a problem for a kind and professional service. Their menu is only in Spanish, but she was helpful and explained a lot, helped us...

We came across Dafne quite by accident, but since we always look for places off the tourist drag and with a local ambiance, recognised immediately that this was a place to stay and indeed to linger! Lovely staff, great wine, super snacks and olives and free wifi! Perfect for the intrepid visitor who needs a change from the cruise ship... More

This restaurant didn't take us all the way to Greece, but came quite close anyway. The tzatziki was just a little too mild, and the horiatiki salad was just a little short of feta cheese, but everything tasted good nonetheless. We especially liked the freshly baked pita bread. Also the small appetizers on the house were a nice touch.

We enjoyed two good meals here. It is something of an oasis at the busier times when places serving local cuisine can be quite frenetic. Very friendly, spoke excellent English and went out of their way to help with my awkward dietary requirements. You can have a nice stroll through the lovely park nearby (Parque Garcia Sanabria) to walk off... More

Whilst staying in Santa Cruz we stumbled upon this delightful restaurant. The menu is predominantly greek, We had the Tzatziki and hummous to start, both being homemade served with freshly baked pitta bread. We then had the moussaka, a meat one and a vegetarian one. Both were tasty and cooked fresh. The restaurant was very busy as it was a... More

Description
Truly international, Santa Cruz de Tenerife���s Dafne is a Greek restaurant with the kitchen run by chef-patron Tassos Kotsekidis. In the centre of town the restaurant is small but perfectly formed with a welcoming atmosphere and comfortable feel. Images of Greece throughout history line the walls, the ideal accompaniment to traditional Grecian food and drinks ��� we recommend enjoying your meal with a refreshing Mythos beer ��� while the service is friendly and helpful, with staff ready to translate the menu for those of you less than familiar with the language. Desserts are truly sinful, ranging from glorious yoghurt with honey through to some devilish chocolate cake.
