This is the first restaurant we ever ate in on our first trip to Morocco , and we always come back when we are in Marrakesh. The setting is so romantic, the food is wonderful and mainly Moroccan and the staff are very friendly and...professional, and now know what we want to eat before we do. This is a fantastic place to eat, or just for a peaceful drink on the terrace to escape from the bustle of the Medina. We always come back here and can't recommend the Palais Donab highly enough.More

The fabulous Jana at Riad Agiaviva recommended this for our last dinner in Marrakesh. A lovely restaurant where we had a table in the courtyard by the pool. We tried the Moroccan salad, assorted briouates and Tanjia marrakchia with chicken which was superb. Lovely ambience...and good service made for a wonderful evening. Fine dining at a reasonable price. Highly recommendMore

Hidden gem in the heart of Medina. Authentic Moroccan food. The atmosphere is great both indoors and outdoor on the terrace. We ate there twice during our stay and were not disappointed with selection of food or the service.

We visited after our morning spa for lunch which was very good, I can recommend the lamb shish-kebab it was delicious. The surroundings were also beautiful it was lovely to sit in the sun. I did find it a little pricey for what it was.

I ate a moulded salad here full of corn and tomatoes and flavour. We ate lunch outside by the pool in the lovely sun. Service was friendly and menu had good options

Our first venture outside the hotel and we found ourselves in Dar Donab. The food was great, as was the service. There was also a local musician who provided a good atmosphere to enjoy our evening. We paid approx 600 dh for a single course...and bottle of wine - which would go a lot further in other local restaurants, but price was the only downside to an otherwise lovely evening!More

We really enjoyed our meal here - a group of five. The staff were really kind and lovely - and we had good fun with them too. All of the food was good - and the restaurant itself was beautiful to be in.

The worst service we have experienced anywhere in marrakech. Even the cheapest cafe offers better service. Food was passable but at this price point would be considered poor. We had to go and ask for cutlery after the starter and go and ask for more...water and poured our own wine. Never a server in sight. When I asked why the service was so poor we were advised they’re a riad not a hotel so service is different. Strange that the service in the riad were staying in is perfect and there’s is not. I would not recommend.More
