This is a beautiful space to enjoy a meal. We paid a bit extra to use the pool for our son while we stayed in a different riad that didn't have a pool. They provided a towel and we could eat poolside, so if you enjoy swimming on a hot day, bring your suit! The food was good and plentiful.... More

You wouldn't guess what kind of little palace is hidden behind the entrance. It's more spacious and serene than you could imagine from the outside and the host welcomed us with a big smile and great service. We both had a tajine and wine (also during Ramadan) and it was a very nice value for money experience. It was nothing... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Part of the Palais Donab in the middle of the Medina, we were seated by the pool for dinner. We wanted authentic Moroccan food, but noted other guests ordered traditional western food. I ordered Berber Tangine (vegetarian) and it was delicious. The waiter had fun, telling me initially it was "beef" then with a... More

The food was so-so but the garden is stunning. We enjoyed having our lunch there. The weather was so lovely while we were there. The service was alright.

We went twice for dinner during a recent long weekend in Marrakesh. Plus on our final afternoon we just went for wine!!! A lovely place. Higher food prices than elsewhere in the old town, but not in way that is a rip-off. Comparison-wise the price is better than at home for both food and wine, and the food was wonderful.... More

A beautiful restaurant with a pool in the middle, romantic. A good place for a beer or glass of wine you dont easily find in Marrakech.

This unique house is full of history, it's luxurious ,refined and very nicely located. It's not very big which give it a private and exclusive character. Fabulous suites and delicious restaurant.

We went to Dar Donab for a nice dinner out while in Marrakech. It is in a beautiful riad near the one of the main souks. The setting was lovely.. warm, good space between tables, terrific lighting and woodwork. The service was absolutely superb, with a highly professional wait staff. Could not have asked for better in the best of... More

On our last day in Marrakesh we wanted to finish off with an excellent lunch. We found it and in the most amazingly beautiful Riad. The waiting staff were exceptional and polite. Most impressively was that they remembered us from calling in for a late night coffee a few days earlier. We cannot recommend Dar Donab more highly.
