The owners of Darbster are animal lovers and they "put their many where their mouth is" The food is vegetarian, but non vegans can enjoy it. As I do. The black and blue Burger is delicious and has texture similar to ground beef. There is a vast menu as well as wine and the deserts are yummy. All the profits... More

This is a cute place and seems to have its following, but if you aren't vegan, I can't recommend it. Many of the dishes we tried were just plain weird, unfortunately. Lots of "fake" meats. I don't understand why, if one doesn't eat meat, one would want to eat something that is supposed to be meatlike! I suggest they ought... More

Even though this Darbster is about 40 minutes away & the one in Boca is closer, we go here often with our dog and friends for brunch and look forward to each of our visits. This is, as far as we know, the only good vegan brunch in the area, so it's worth the drive. We like sitting outside in... More

We tend to steer clear of vegetarian restaurants, preferring to find good vegetarian fare in regular eating places. It is rare that we are not able to find a decent meal. We are both vegetarian. However, we discovered Darbster by chance on a windy, rainy South Florida day. Lunchtime. We were struck by the pretty location of the restaurant alongside... More

This restaurant was recommended by a good friend, and rightfully so! The palm cake appetizer was delicious! Harvest salad was very fresh and plentiful, and the Southwestern burrito was hearty and so satisfying. It was loaded with black beans and rice, among other tasty additions. If I can recommend one thing to a future patron, I liked the Caesar dressing... More

Great Food!! Great Service... Dog Friendly!! My Non-Vegan Friend keeps asking to go back there and my dog loves the homemade dog food. Fresh ingredients and great menu.. One of my favorite restaurants.

Went to Darbster on a Wednesday night at 6pm. The place was quite but in the next hour it got quite busy. Nice setting by the water, clean outdoor dining. Large menu with lots of items, so difficult to choose just one. We had for 2 people the Vegetables tempura as a starter and I have to say it was... More

My husband and I travel 45 minutes to go to Darbster about once or twice a month. We love it! This time I tried their apple wrap with peanut dressing. Total Yum! My husband stuck with his favorite the falafel wrap! It is the only place that he has ever had falafels that were moist. Darbster is the BEST!

Very nice cozy place near the water. Location on Dixie is not the childhood dream but probably helps to keep loyal prices. And the moment you are inside you do not see ugly street any more. Food is very tasty, menu is big enough and the service is very good and friendly, girls can always tell you all the ingredients... More
