From the outside this place doesn't do justice to the interior of this larger than normal riad. Stunning is the word! Real oldie worldie charm almost feels like you are stepping back in time. The choice of food is pretty varied and being honest pretty much what you would get on any other menu but the taste and flavours were... More

An amazing dining experience in an exquisite setting. The pastilla is exquisite and absolutely enough reason alone to dine here. The lamb tajine is also excellent. A selection of good local wines and full bar complement your meal. The staff is incredibly courteous, efficient and very friendly. Add to that the incomparable Moroccan decor (massive brass lamps, exquisite wood carved... More

Dar Donab is a beautifully maintained Riad well located in the Medina. The courtyard by the pool is a pleasant place for either lunch or dinner. Good service. The menu is classic Moroccan food, fairly average.

The food was amazing an the waitering staff to match. This a beautiful restaurant, which will reminds you of the beautiful architectures of Morroco. It felt like we were eating in an expensive restaurant in London. Highly recommended.

I love Dar Donab because of the stylish setting. I love it for a coffee and a relaxing moment. But all my lunch experiences so far were bad. Bad service, and not an eye for detail. If you can call serving everyone at the same time a detail. Some had finished their menu while others were still waiting.

My husband and I had lunch and a bottle of wine here. Beautiful grounds. They offer indoor and outdoor dining. We had the mixed Moroccan salad to share as a starter. Then the very four flavours and chicken tangaria to share. Absolutely delicious food. The meat was soft and succulent. Great service.

Spent the day here to make use of the pool and also had a lovely lunch. The briouattes and Moroccan salads were delicious and just right for lunch time. As a regular visitor to Marrakech, I will certainly return here. Thank you.

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
