For that special evening

Darcy's menu is interesting and the service second to none. I always enjoy the seafood when I visit.

The omg steak is cooked in butter and I was surprised you considered it dry and of course gave you pepper sauce as you requested. The four... More

Ate here recently with another couple. The place is small and not very well layed out. The overall effect is a bit like an old hotel restaurant. We were crammed into a 4 seater table in the corner. Then the Menus arrived and they are huge. not huge with content. Physically huge. We had to move glasses and plates to... More

And up to 7. 50 for a... More
