Description: Comptoir Darna is an important nightlife attraction in Marrakech, which has arrived on the scene in 1999. It proposes a perfect fusion between the orient and the occident. It is « THE » place in the red city where every night is party night. Comptoir Darna is where we live unforgettable moments, where we meet and exchange mutual experiences... It is the house of the traveler, an unavoidable pause on the caravan trail. “Darna” in Arabic means “Our Home”, so: Welcome to your home !

“Nice to get a show but food to overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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
