Description: After a nice walk on the beach on a breezy day don't forget to pass by D'Arcy's Kitchen. You will be enchanted by our cottage-style interior with its bright & cheerful yellows and blues, folksy decorations and homely gingham seating. The pleasant, and always smiling staff, in their cute country-style outfits, will surround you with warmth and friendliness. As you begin sampling our freshly prepared beverages and wholesome food offerings, you will slowly begin to realize why D'Arcy's holds such a unique place in the hearts & minds of Muscat residents; and why it has twice won the much coveted "Best Cafe Award" since opening its first branch in 1997 in the Shatti Al Qurum beach area. If you're in the mood for a more tranquil experience why not visit our second branch, which is located in a residential area and offers a slightly different and more relaxing experience. With its green & leafy outdoor "English Garden" patios it is reminiscent of pleasant summer living in country villages all over Europe. Over the years D'Arcy's has managed to satisfy its diverse multinational and multicultural customer base by providing a vast selection of items from coffees to juices, from salads to sandwiches, from soups to main dishes, from snacks to desserts. Some of our longtime favorites include our delicious D'Arcy's Breakfast with coffee and juice, refreshing Lime & Mint crushed iced drink, Caesar and Avocado Salads, Traditional Lamb stew, Homemade pies, Tuna and Coronation sandwiches, our famous Steak, Fish & Chips, Aromatic Marinated Chicken, Carrot cake and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Everyone always tells us how at home they feel in D'Arcy's. Whether they're alone, with friends or with the family they always find that spending time at D'Arcy's is both relaxing and rejuvenating. So, give yourself a treat and enjoy a cup of the best cappuccino in town whist reading the latest magazines or having a nice chat with friends.

This is the second year in a row we had my daughter's birthday breakfast at D'Arcy's Kitchen. Breakfast offerings are very good. The salad and sandwich also hits the spot.

Im not sure whats going on at Darcys, if they changed staff or chef or menus but its not like it was before. We used to love going there at the weekend but now it just doesnt feel as wholesome. Portions are smaller and prices have went up. And theres no tuna salad anymore - which is why i dont go anymore. Pity. it used to be much much better.

Dear Steveyg069,

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment.

We are sorry to hear that you are not entirely happy with your experience the last time you have visited D’Arcy’s Kitchen.
We have been working and developing menus with the same team of chefs for the last 6 years

. Our portion sizes have consistently remained the same from year to year. We have had a small price increase recently for the first time in 2 years. We had to do this in order to give the same high quality of food and beverages that we are known for in Muscat.
We listen to our regular guests and appreciate their opinions.

When it comes to decision making regarding which items to remove from the menu we really do consider the opinions of our loyal guests. We have removed the Tuna Salad from the menu 1 year ago already, but have replaced this with our very successful “Buddah Bowl” salad. Please do come and try it!

Next time you are visiting D’Arcy’s Kitchen, please do not hesitate to ask to see our Executive Chef Paul Steffens, He will gladly answer all your questions and make recommendations regarding our menu.

We hope to see you again soon in our establishment and that you will have a pleasant dining experience.

I have twice been to this restaurant .It is a nice pleasant bright place painted in pastel colours similar to a country kitchen, with attentive staff
It is a non alchoholic establishment similar to most non hotel outlets in Muscat. The choice of food is good and twice I had the "Budha Bowl",supplemented by grilled chicken. The portion sizes are good, and my Jenny Craig diet failed miserably as it was about 4 times the Jenny size portion.For drinks they have a good selection of fresh smoothies and a few other options that are adequate.I would recommend this place unconditionally.I was served both times by pleasant young ladies who wore badges which advised they were trainees which I thought was good so that customers may excuse any issues down to inexperience. My servers were great with pleasant demeanours and very attentive so no issues at all there.

Been to D’Arcy’s quiet a number of times and tried most of their dishes. It’s a great environment for enjoying any meal. The interior is colourful and lively, staff are always friendly, food always on point. I recently had their fish and chips which I greatly enjoyed and my kid had the chicken nuggets from the kids meal (which they served with a few slices of cucumbers and tomatoes which is impressive).
For Desert the oreo cheesecake is a must and their lava cake is always goey inside.
