What a gem for Sarasota! Unique, vivid Peruvian food flavors. Great change of pace from the usual run of restaurants. Beautiful building and decor with Peruvian antiques. Fun and comfortable ambiance. Occasional small music acts add a nice touch on certain nights. Interesting in-house micro brew with a variety of beer flavors, including unique Peruvian ingredients in some. Always a... More

My spouse and I had an overnight trip to Sarasota. We got rained out and had to improvised. We discovered Darwin's on 4th. It was a nice restaurant. The first part was the brewery that housed the bar and the live music and a small space for dancing. The second part is the restaurant with an opened kitchen. The entire... More

This restaurant had amazing food. We had the appetizers first (do not sit in the main dining area or they will not serve you happy hour from 5-7pm). The food was great. I will say the mojitos were not the best but everything else was....especially the pork tacos. The dinner was amazing. They accommodated my food allergies and it was... More

Dined there for the first time on our August trip to Sarasota. Liked the place as soon as we walked in. Although it was midweek the place was still busy, that did not slow down the service at the bar though. The staff were knowledgeable and very good. Went into the restaurant section and dinned on some very tasty and... More

Dawrins is one of those tucked away places that offer a surprisingly interesting menu and their own craft brews. The beer list changes often so be prepared to go more than once. Their crab cakes are tiny but the lump crab inside is wonderful. The beef dishes are the best.

Had low expectations but was part of a group selecting it. In addition to having an excellent beer menu, everything we ordered from sides like plantains and brussel sprouts to salads and the main courses were really well prepared. You just could not go wrong. And, the service was excellent, really excellent. I have now added this to one of... More

we've been to darwin s a few time and it hasn't disappointed us yet. Great cocktail list, try the pisco sours, or a traditional caipiriniha, good service, a bit slow if you're upstairs. we were with good company, so we didn't mind. Food was solid. The truffled risotto was outstanding. we'll be back…..

One of the best meals of our stay in siesta key/Sarasota. We arrived late in the evening close to closing time and were a bit concerned about the empty parking lot and restaurant... I sure am glad that didn't shy us away from this marvel!!! Oh my goodness, from the outstanding service to the tasty brews and cocktails then to... More
