We found Dar Donab by accident, and are glad that we did. The riad's hostess was very welcoming and directed us to the restaurant. The wait staff was attentive and professional. The setting by the pool was delightful and the plantings were just lovely -- the Bird of Paradise were beautifully... read more

the restaurant is out of the noisy area and the building and decoration are really good. Cheap for european budgets but over the average in this city.

We took a chance coming here on our last night in Marrakech and very glad we did! The food was great and they even went so far as to whip up a plate of hand made french fries for my expectant partner which was really nice of them. Definitely recommended!

I visited it first time 5 years ago and decided to go back. It was even better then last time. All 3 local meals were good. In fact we got the best Taijn on our trip. I would also recommend to try Moroccan win Medallion. It was good surprise. The price was almost like in Brussels but environment (pretty romantic),... More

We stumbled into this place as we came out from getting a couples massage at Hammam de la Rose which was only a few minutes walk from our Riad Idra. Food was lovely and reasonably priced, staff were very smart and knowledgeable.Would definitely recommend again for an evening meal.

This restaurant set in a small palace built by the Pasha of Marrakech, 'The Glaoui', for 3 of his wives, is under recognised and deserves to be crowded most days but sadly is not. The surroundings are opulent as you would expect. If you are dining in the pool area do visit the dining room, stunning. The food is Moroccan... More

The food was totally fine but we did expect more for the price and the beautiful surroundings. Another couple who were there had their phones on, ringing, long conversations etc. which ruined the atmosphere. I politely asked the waiter if he could ask the lady to finish her loud phone conversation but he just said there was nothing he could... More
