Description: Comptoir Darna is the first lounge-restaurant-club in Marrakech, its musical concept has made it famous. This Restaurant & Club is a place where a colorful, cosmopolitan clientele of the famous and the not-so-famous rub shoulders in a festive atmosphere created by exotic dancers, live musicians and DJ's… A fun and trendy place offering a menu featuring both International and Moroccan dishes. The perfect blend of the Orient and the West, this is the place in Marrakech where night time means party time.

“Nice to get a show but food to overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant to get a dinner while looking at a show
The belly dancers came at 22:30 and the show was average maybe a bit cheap.
The food was good but totally overpriced, the restaurant was really dark but overal feeling was good
Our waiter seemd like she didn't want to be there and couldn't even give a smile once
The shisha bar in the garden after was great but drinks where very expensive.
In total i think we spend about 1400 dh, you get 2 starters 2 main courses 1 bottle of wine and shisha with 2 drinks for this money

“Enjoyed the evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We were in Morocco on a tour and had dinner and drinks at Comptoir . Decor was very chic Moroccan and it dies have a trendy club / dinner feel to it. Lighting is dim but there are beautiful Moroccan lights everywhere creating just the right light. There are also candelabras on the tables. Locals and tourists were there
Dinner was vert good. We had a party of 12 and service was excellent as well.
Music starts around 11:00pm on the upper level of the restaurant. There is also an outdoor courtyard where you can have drinks and smoke a Hooka and still hear the music but not too loud.
Great atmosphere

“best place for a wonderful evening/night out in marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

you can visit comptoir darna for dinner and/or drinks but the later is available only at the bar upstairs, which is otherwise hub of fun and music in the establishment. You'll find good company and easily spot and be spotted by classy & liberal moroccan women looking for company (beware of their expenses but rest assured of their quality ). the bar at darna is the safest place in marrakech to pick somebody for nocturnal adventures. its open till 1:30 am and if you want more fun you can simply move on to 'So', a nightclub at Sofitel just across the avenue!

“Have your wallet full !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Booked this as a special night out, the venue is stunning but is clearly high-end you need a large wallet or have spent very little elsewhere. Went straight for mains, Meatball Tagine, and comptoir burger as my girlfriend had overdosed on tagines and couscous !
2 beers, 3 cocktails (which were tasty but contained very little alcohol)

Wait for it 1000 dirham ! Inc tip
Belly dancers came on at about 2230 and were good, wine list was okay but a simple red was 400 dirham

I understand that the prices in the UK are similar in and equivalent restaurant but this is marrakech not the west end. My personal view is its not worth it head somewhere basic in town then go for nice cocktails elsewhere
