Fun place and great food

Waiters smartly dressed in brightly coloured waistcoats (mainly a red theme). We loved the sizzling lobster (very fleshy; like crayfish) with prawns thermidor.

We have been going to Darboe's for a couple of years now for at least one meal during our holiday.

We have eaten in most of the restaurants along the strip so are happy to give them all a go, but unfortunately this one didn't get us going, as we say you always find a bad one and sadly this was ours, the service was good but the food very poor

We ate here on the first day of our holiday. The food was lovely, nice Gambian cuisine. The staff were very friendly & couldn't do enough for us. Cheap beer during happy hour too! The meals are very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit..
