Visited Darboes numerous times, large menu with great variety of dishes. Every dish we had was lovely.The cocktails are equally delicious as are the music and entertainment. Always busy which makes for a great atmosphere.Darboe is a very attentive host as are his waiting staff.

We didn’t eat here, just had a couple of cheap beers & people watched. We really wanted a small snack with our beer but nothing suitable on the menu. Seems pretty popular. I’d come back to eat here.
