Excellent refined Moroccan cuisine

The three of us went to Darna with a little apprehension. Moroccan cuisine can sometimes be overpowering. To our delight this was not. The,decor was authentic rather than kitschy, with an intimate feel. Prices are on the high side, but,the,dishes,are so generous that it is easy to share. We all shared a tiny Pastilla,...

The,decor was authentic rather than kitschy, with an intimate feel. Prices are on the high side, but,the,dishes,are so generous that it is easy to share. We all shared a tiny Pastilla, a meat pie with exquisitely delicate flavoring: savoury chicken in sugar and cinnamon in true classical Arabic tradition- just a couple of bites but,what bites! Then we,shared two main course between the three of us - couscous is common here in Israel but I had never tasted anything as good as this - and a lamb and artichoke tagine which was wonderful. A GLASS OF the house wine was not wonderful but went well with the food. And finally we,shared an excellent plate of sweets, with marzipan starring in first place. Highly recommended.

Overrated restaurant in a lovely architectural setting

I had heard for many years that this Moroccan restaurant in downtown Jerusalem was excellent and that it offered some of the finest Moroccan fare in Israel.

I had heard for many years that this Moroccan restaurant in downtown Jerusalem was excellent and that it offered some of the finest Moroccan fare in Israel. Finally, we found a way to arrange to have dinner there with friends. It was, unfortunately, a great disappointment, except for the setting, which is exceptionally lovely, and also the service was quite good. There were some good tastes, but the food was by no means excellent. It was also not hot enough when served. The portions were not large, especially for the exorbitant prices.

Good food in a nigh setting
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on November 8, 2017

The food is good and portions are generous. Service is good. Seating is abit uncomfortable,but not awful. Prices are above average, it not mind numbing. Figure on about 250 NIS a person if you exercise restraint when ordering wine

Horrible, Overpriced Tourist Trap With Lousy Food

I am shocked at the positive reviews of this restaurant. In a word it is HORRIBLE. In a few words - It is obnoxiously expensive and horrible. I have written numerous reviews on Trip Advisor and you can see my badge level. Please, please please - DO NOT EAT HERE!!! Now some detail - the salads are really, really tasteless and overpriced. A main course here is around 120 shekels so they should not charge for salads if you order a main - but they do - and worse -- the salads are simply tasteless. No taste, no spice, and since all the vegetables were the exact same shape and cut - I think they buy the salads from some commercial service. They do not look or taste homemade. Really awful The Bread - served cold - not warm, not pipping hot - but cold as in cold and tasteless. Bread should be served pipping hot and with some kind of spread - olive oil, pesto - something. Our bread came with NOTHING, NADA, Nichts. Now the main courses - SO OVERPRICED AND SMALL. I have never seen a Tangine as small as the ones at this restaurant and so expensive. Like 125 shekels for a tangine of lamb which was 85% fruit and 15% fatty lamb and bone. This was not enough meat for even two people to share - but tons and tons of dried fruit. Yes, Darna - you customers are stupid and think a prune is actually a piece of lamb The cous cous was nothing special at all - no different from Osem instant cous cous you can buy at any supermarket for 5 shekels. Now the tea - 20 shekels per person for a tiny glass of suger water disguised as teal. Now the service - our server - lazy, did not know menu items, did not know difference between calf and lamb and was really slow and brought us cold food and made us wait forever to get our salads at the beginning of the meal - which might have been as blessing as the salads were horrible - see above. In sum, ignore the positive reviews - no way they are accurate. Darna is simply an overpriced tourist trap with really, really bad food Bonus review - the bathrooms were filthy and the decor was run down and ugly
