It was my Mummy's 81st Birthday so decided to take her and the family for a birthday dinner at Darboes Restaurant! As always they didn't fail, with a well decorated table, good music and an atmosphere to enjoy... The food was tremendous excellent value for money with good size potions. Fabulous ..you must visit!

Very good food, also for vegetarians! Lamin Darboe is a perfect host and the whole staff is very friendly. The Boss Lamin is also a talented singer and you can have a lot of fun when he performs with his band. The combination of good food, music and dance is perfect!
