Celebrated my kids Bar-Bat Mitzvahs with a large group of 11 and had an excellent meal. The food is family style so you share everything with a big lazy susan in the middle of the table. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was lots of fun. A bit pricey, but well worth it!

we had supper at Darna. our first impression was that we got away from our normal environment and did not have to travel. the decor of the restaurant, the soundtrach the waitressse' clothes ...everything was giving a maroccan touch. the food was very tasty although different of our usual choice, food portions were generous. The service was impeccable and polite. price/quality was very decent. We intend to have a family party there in the near future...they have this room for 70 guests that was very appealing and we liked the place.
we hope the family event will be at least as enjoyable

Lovely atmosphere! Food was plentiful but pricey for what it was...close to $100 pp. couscous is enough for 2 people and1 tagine is enough for 2. Got up sold by waitress. $8.50 is a bit much for a couple of orange and grapefruit pieces with raisins.

Some places don't hold to what they promise but this one certainly does. It has many great authentic dishes with a very unique style. Not gourmet food but very good on the palate. Especially try the lamb.

Hate being less than glowing, as the staff and owner seemed very charming.
The restaurant is very interesting looking, lots of decorative Middle Eastern touches and passed by a lovely looking garden area, on our way to our table inside.
However, I have been to Morocco and eaten at many Moroccan restaurants, and the food, at least on the night my husband and I ate there, was just so-so:the pastry of theb'stilla wasn't flaky and it was dry and flat, the mezzo were not up to typical subtle flavoring but mostly overpowered by the harissa, and most of the mains were just okay-although there was a wonderful chicken tajine.
But if you are in Jerusalem and want a change of food in an interesting/festive location, and have never tried Moroccan, you could do worse,
