Darna Review

A vaulted tunnel sets you down in a corner of Morocco, complete with imported floor tiles and inlaid chairs. The fixed-price menus are a veritable banquet; ordering à la carte, though, offers more flexibility. The salads are quite different from the local Arab meze, but don't miss the harira soup of meat, chickpeas, and lentils flavored with cumin, or the pastilla fassia, phyllo dough stuffed with almonds, cinnamon, and Cornish hen (vegetarian versions are usually available). The tagines, or Moroccan stews, are excellent, but the house specialty is the more expensive roast baby-lamb shoulder with almonds, served on couscous. Finish with refreshing mint tea (served with fine ceremony) and the wonderful toubkal delight, sweet phyllo dough with cinnamon and almond milk.

    Not what it used to be

    As with so many restaurants it started out well and has now gone downhill fast. We were embarassed for our host who thought he was taking us for a treat. The waitress was pushy. She ordered what she wanted us to have and I did not even get a meal. We shared. Our hosts lamb was nothing but fat and the cornish game hen had been starved to death. This place is way over-rated for its present condition. In the end our host said he wished he taken us for a felaffal.We agreed.

    Excellent Moroccan Food in a Fun Atmosphere

    The walls are decorated in a Moroccan food, and many of the specialties are here in a relaxed atmosphere with very good service. Huge portions, including a salad sampler appetizer that's easily enough for 3, along with excellent tagines and couscous.
