The restaurant looks very nice and the waitresses are very kind, also you will find traditional food at a fair price.

Had lunch here one day after a massage at a nearby spa. Restaurant around a lovely pool in the centre of the building, which is beautiful. Lovely food and service and we went back for dinner on another evening and enjoyed just the same. Met a gentleman who has been going to Marrakech for 12 years and always stays here as so lovely.

We come here every time we are in Marrakesh, except last year when it was taken over for the Climate Change conference.

I have previously raved about the food and it is still great Moroccan cuisine, but this review is about the hotel bar which is straight out of 1001 Arabian Nights; if you look closely you can see Scherezade sitting in the shadows preparing to narrate a story.

Palais Donab, now a hotel, was previously a small palace and most of the decor reflects this from the lavish use of marble, the breathtaking dining room with it's carved ceilings and massive fireplace - but not massive fires when it is lit in winter - and the coloured glass in the centre of the ceiling, the high ceilings throughout the ground floor and the central courtyard with (unheated) pool.

Passing all of these you come to a small, at first glance, rectangular bar which is wood panelled like all great bars should be, with brass Moroccan lights and a painted ceiling which at night - the best way to experience the bar - combine to take your breath away. The huge marble fireplace, which we haven't seen with a fire in it, adds to the splendour without dominating the room.

This is a place for post dinner drinks as you will be have to be very strong willed to leave. All the usual Moroccan beer and wine is here with a superb cocktail, and virgin cocktail, menu too.

This is a must visit bar for a taste of real palace life with added drinks and as previously referred to, the food is great too.

This is a delightful restaurant in the Medina just across from our hotel which was the Palais Khum. We were seated outside around a lovely pool. A combo played pleasant music during dinner. The food and service were excellent. If you are looking for a fine restaurant in the Medina you will not go wrong making a reservation at Dar Donab.

We went there for a lunch, the place is very beautiful, service is good. Just food can be better. Great place for visiting typical Morrocan riad and restaurant.
