“Want moroccan? Darna is your top choice”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

A superb day in Jerusalem should be capped by a repast at this destination eatery.It presents well with entry and reception delightfully warm.We are escorted and seated,almost supine in comfortable banquet settees. Darna delights the eye with its authentic settings and decore,while the food dazzles your palate.We eschew the menu and settle on the philo pastry-encrusted pigeon and a tagine of couscous & fabulous vegetables. we flank these starters with a tagine of Denis fish which satisfies and a heartwarming tagine of artichokes stuffed with beef. We are in heaven! We order a bottle of Cab Sav from Gamla,a superb accompaniment from the Gallili. All questions fielded about ingredients, spices and method of preperation,were answered with knowledge and a pride in the chef's capabilities. We were having enough fun to try the shallow,philo covered soft cheese,beautifully baked. We lounge to the rhythmic sounds of Morrocco. This is a "crisp" experience with management and staff anticipating and satisfying our every need. There are many restaurants that are worthy of praise.This one leaves a wonderful feeling. Life's good things do not come cheaply....enjoy the splurge.

“Superb Glatt Kosher Food at a High Price”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The food was extremely good. We ordered the tasting menu, despite its cost. Service was not particularly attentive or responsive. But we did have the semi-private dining room, which was great for a lengthy, relaxing dinner.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I've eaten at this restaurant on two occasions, once in 2009 and just this past month (May 2013). The food is so good here. The staff is attentive and makes suggestions. The owner checked on us quite a few times which I really appreciated. We had our 20 month old son with us, and the staff did not mind, and was quite accommodating.

“Great food, a little pricey”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

A Jewish Moroccan restaurant. Food is great. Ambiance is great. service is great. portions could be a little more generous (although my overseas guests never seem to complain about it, so it could be that I'm pampered by the avarage Israeli portions being large). The place is a bit pricey, but considering the food, ambiance, and service, it's probably worth it.

“Always outstanding”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We have eaten at this restaurant each time we have visited Jerusalem --- always an outstanding experience. Fabulous setting, excellent service and wonderful food. Try the bastilla (pastilla?) as a first course and then the lamb on the bone (an entree for two people) on a bed of couscous --- fabulous! My only reservation is that the place has become rather "pricey."
