Always enjoyable

Ate here several times, and had very good food on every occasion. Worth trying their Gambian specialties (the chicken in peanut sauce was fabulous). Good value

We ate several times at Darboes and were never disappointed.......the fish was fresh and delicious and they had a seafood soup to die for!! An excellent selection to choose from. The staff were very attentive and helpful and we even received a complimentary cocktail from the owner. Would definitely highly recommend this restaurant.

Went to Darboes in January 2015. The food was very good great variety. I had chicken benchin which was delicious. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. It is slow but everything in The Gambia is, but well worth the wait. Can't wait to go back in July.
