I certainly recommend the lobster but they also serve good Gambian dishes like benachin,domoda ….and this for a reasonable price. If you can you must try also the apple pie.This is home made by the cook Bass.Very good. I also recommend a good... More

Our party really enjoyed the food at Darboes, the steaks were excellent, one of a party was allowed to take her meal home due to feeling unwell. We eventually had to go inside as it was getting a little cool outside, this was no trouble to the accommodating staff who we found friendly and cheerful.

Our first visit to this restaurant as it seemed to be busy which is usually a good sign. Asked for a plain grilled fish, but the dish had been coated in flour and pan fried and very greasy.
