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 arrived at the famous Amersfoort a sunny day .. We want coffee and decided to enter at Dara.. We made the best choice .. The staff were polite .. Mr PR was a quite friendly guy with incredible chioumor..He treated us our coffees and four champagne glasses ..They had also live music..we had a wonderful time!!

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.

Nice please to eat with friends. Ambience looks good. We had the mezze platter which enabled us to taste more dishes and to share. Some of the dishes were good others were ok. Overall the food could be more spiced to reach the authentic lebanese kitchen

One of the guests with whom I was visiting this restaurant recommended Dara and therefore we choose Dara to reunite with a group of six. The restaurant is nice. One of the things that catches your intention is the effect of the mirrors. It makes Dara seems a lot more bigger than it is. The place is perfect to be... More
