Recommend visiting Darboes when you come to Gambia. The food is good and entertainment great. We saw some acrobatics performes by a group from Sierra Leone who were brilliant. Also Darboe is always around the restaurant and is very friendly.

***Their freshly made Ginger juice is to die for, so 5 stars just on account of that!*** Also, wonderful late night atmosphere. There is live music, talented singers and very friendly, attentive staff. This establishment lives up to The Gambian 'Smiling Coast of Africa' reputation.

A great bar/restaurant serving tasty African food and the host Darboe is a very funny, welcoming guy who makes you feel like an old friend in no time, there always seamed to be some lively fun African live music to entertain you. This is great place cant wait to go back!
