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 Moroccan dining at the opposite end of the market to street food”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Our riad recommended this as a London prices restaurant but somewhere the belly dancing isn’t twee. Don’t arrive before 9pm as the place is dead until about 9:30 and the belly dancers start their stuff about 10:30. Good food and a great espresso martini (not offered on arrival but if you ask for the restaurant menu and look at after-dinner cocktails – they are there as their espress-tini). Would I do it again? Probably not given some of the other places we found, but it was a fun night out.
Funniest thing – autocorrect wants comptoir to be vomiting … which it isn’t

“Belly dancing on the table !!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Great fun !! We were a group of 16 ladies so had made a reservation before. We were well looked after start to finish from the waiters. The cocktails were divine, recommend the Love Potion !! The food was some of the best we had in Marrakech. The show was amazing, the whole place was up dancing. We had arranged taxis for 1am which was too early. Approx 650 DH per head for a 3 course meal, a cocktail and plenty of wine all night. Highly recommended

“Nice to get a show but food to overpriced”
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”
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
