“One of the best restaurants in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Dara is different. Special. It's a good place to be with my lover, a bunch of friends, my family or even my grandmother. The atmosphere is fun, colourful and modern - but not too trendy. Dara is a 'wolrd restaurant': the dishes are inspired by all kinds of different cultures from all over the Mediterranean area: Spanish tapas, Turkish dishes and Arabic meals. Dara serves a fantastic Moroccan wine. Although the restautant is situated just outside the historical old town, Dara is a must-go when you're paying a visit to the city of Amersfoort.

“Nice food at a good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Nice food from with a Middle East touch. Great staff, nice service and interesting location at the Eem. Inside it is a bit dark, the terrace is outstanding.

“Lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We stayed in Mercure Hotel Amersfoort. A great hotel. They advised us to go Dara as the food is like a tapas restaurant but then with worldfood dishes and the service is nice and the atmosphere is great. All is true! Maybe its not the best meail ever, but it was really really nice all together. Great suggestion by the hotel!

“Lovely staff, nice view and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Together with my sisters, nieces and in-laws I visited this great restaurant that a colleague recommended. Amersfoort is a lovely city that tourists visiting the Netherlands really should visit. Then there's this restaurant Dara, close to the Koppelpoort, one of the main sights of the city. Don't forget to pay a visit to the small art gallery that is located there, too (in the Koppelpoort, that is!). Dara offers a great view on the water, it has a big terrace as well. We sat inside, as we were there in October and it rained heavily that evening. Because we were a party of 9, I had to let them know upon making the reservation some days before, what menu we would take so they could prepare everything just in time. Clever, eh? We opted for the Meditterranean mezzes and tapas, both hold and cold. Locely, great taste and the portions were big enough for us. A real recommend and reservations have to be made when coming wi large groups in the weekend. I'll certainly go back!

“Poor service, serious kitchen mistakes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Went there 2 Mondays on the trot. first time there was no waiter to be seen for an hour, the one that arrived forgot to bring the menu with the beer so waited even longer. The dish came out as if the chef was not bothered.. sent it back received it again in exact same state...
second time round, order a fish mezze, got pieces of lamb in the souce. It looks like left overs are being served... Will not be going there again..
