Job description

We are looking for a talented and charismatic Waiter to join the team of our fantastic restaurant; Daphne's, part of Caprice Holdings.

Daphne’s, the famous Italian neighbourhood restaurant, bar and conservatory in South Kensington, appeal lies not only in its seasonal cooking, but also its natural warmth and effortless Italian charm, making it a favourite amongst the residents of Chelsea and visitors from further afield. In summer, the bright conservatory creates an alfresco feel with its retractable roof; in winter, a blazing fire in the open range turns it into an intimate retreat.

Caprice Holdings

Caprice Holdings encompasses some of London's favourite restaurants.

From the glamour of Le Caprice to the elegance of Daphne’s and charm of The Mount Street Deli, the theatricality of The Ivy to the stylishness of Scott’s and 34 Mayfair and the magnetic allure of Sexy Fish, the intimacy of J Sheekey to the simplicity of Rivington Grill ~ these cover a wide variety of atmospheres and clienteles. Their cuisines, too, range far and wide: traditional and modern British, Tuscan, French and south east Asian. All, though, share a devotion to quality, demonstrated in the sourcing, seasonality, preparation and presentation of their food and drink, in the imagination of their design and in the warmth and skill of their service.

The Caprice group’s restaurants are renowned throughout the world, but they are as devoted to their regulars as their regulars are to them.

The Caprice group is always looking for new ways to entertain. In recent years there have been acclaimed new ventures in J Sheekey Atlantic Bar, The Mount Street Deli and 34 Mayfair, a thriving event production and catering company in Urban Caprice, a members’ club, The Club at The Ivy and 2 major refurbishments in Daphne’s (2014) and The Ivy (2015) – just in time for its 100th anniversary in 2017 and last, but not least, the much-talked-about Sexy Fish, launched in October 2015. All of this has been achieved while holding fast to our traditions, history and values.
