Great place to eat or enjoy a drink with friends. Nice atmosphere, friendly and relaxed.

This is a restaurant where you can have dinner in a easy, comfortable way. Great value for money. Food is mainly middle east, with small tapas like dishes. Its quite close to the trainstation and to the city center.

Yeah, well, i know Mediterranean food a little. And this is the very, very safe version of it. Lots of bread, lots of creamy spreads, all very commercial. And it all tastes like... yeah like what, nothing really. The same goes for the staff (at least the ones that helped us the several times we were there). Friendly-ish, but not... More

We had lunch here with about 20 colleagues following a meeting in the area. The staff were more than helpful, very friendly, explained exactly was each tapas dish consisted of. I'm not a tapas person but once I knew what everything was I tried them all, delicious, definitely worth a return visit if I'm in the area!

I was in Amersfoort for business. We had 15 people to take to dinner and this was a great place! It's near the canal so it's a beautiful walk to and from dinner. The train station is nearby so it's easy for out of town guests to get to (and easy walk!) the food is served ME style so there... More

Often very crowded - both inside and outside (a pleasant terrace on the water front). Service is slow, but polite. The menu is interesting - fusion and varied. But portions are small and often somewhat bland. Perhaps this place is the victim of its own success - as it brought a new type of restaurant (essentially tapas-size portions) to Amersfoort....

A restaurant that serves delicious world cuisine! Pleasant ambiance inside, when outside temperatures get cooler, Top location in the summer, when you can chill outside on the terras for a lunch or even better, for a dinner with a nice sunset.

Enjoy some culinairy tastes of the world at Dara. Serving dishes (Mezzes) from all over the world that are quite tasteful and well prepared. Also the restaurant is located at a great spot with view on the river 'Eem'.

Dara is located near the beautiful historical 'Koppelpoort', on which you have a nice view from the 1st floor. The interior is a great combination of modern art and 1001 nights magical elements. The menu covers a variety of mezze (small dishes to share) from a variety of eastern/southern non-European countries. Great taste!

Good food with eastern touch. Location bit far away and noisy next to trains. But overall nice to try. Waiters are very kind and helpful.

22 High. Situated in the Mercure Hotel away from the old town. Good range of food - Asian, oriental, sushi, halal, some meat cooked to order, plus fantastic desserts and chocolate fountain. Bit pricey, but probably good value if you can eat a lot! Good service.
