Surprised my boyfriend with dinner in this great restaurant. The place is beautiful and is obviously loved by others as it was very busy in there. We tastes tons of different 'mezzes' (small dishes, like tapas) and we loved every single one of them. Also the desserts were lovely. Most definitely returning soon.

We had a couple of lunches here in the summer and found the Moroccan inspired food to be really tasty. Its a nice place to have a leisurely drink in tbe summer and watch boats on the water.

Visited Dara in January 2017, which is supposedly Maroccoan cusine, though the food didn't reflect it. Had 3 starters (ribs, chicken and cheese/spinach rolls) - and after a clarification with the waiter - also a main course, deer w/ sides of asparages & polenta. The deer was kinda dry and all portions were small. Despite having 3 starters & a... More

It was a Friday night and very busy , but it took 50 mins to get any food . We watched people who had arrived after us getting their food so something had gone amiss . I accept that it was very busy , but if the kitchen can't cope then don't have so many tables . The menu is... More

I've never walked out because of bad service but this came close. Our waiter was completely clueless even when the table behind us got our olives and the table next to us how arrived 30 minutes after us ate before we did. Previous reviews had said it could be slow but this was just bad staff. After 45 minute and... More

We were exited to eat here. However the food was quite blend, not very tasty. Just the herbs were not used . Pity as the dishes could be great. Also service could be better. Customers are not 100% important for them, not so good in horeca business.

Very small size portion for (usually) normal size meal. Don't go there if you're hungry and wants to eat a lot, coz you will have to order about 3 meals (at least) to get your belly full. But if its just snacking with nice drinks you can enjoy the variety of choices there. Still feel the price is on the... More

Went on a sunny day to this restaurant right on the Creek the Eem, great view on the Koppelpoort. Lunch menu 13 euros with several dishes. Taste was pretty OK, Turkish bread was min 1 day old or more. Service was seriously dreadfull, had to ask for each drink, plate or menu card 3 times before the would come.
