A beautiful palace and location, service was excellent and live music and dancing. Food is set menu and includes wine for 550dh, food was not the best we had but tasty especially the aubergine tagine, chicken was terrible. We ordered lots of starters and asked for more which we're brought, we also drank lots of wine and enjoyed the belly... More

I can give one point for the location, a great palace, very impressive. The service was attentive and friendly. Food is plenty but of simply terrible quality. Moroccan salads as a starter were ok, nothing special. We had the Tajine as a second, very bad meat quality and poor seasoning. After that the Couscous, unimaginative, badly presented and no taste.... More

We were here on a quiet night, and were surprised by how good the food was. The floor show was very limited and mostly directed to a party of businessmen, but the musicians were excellent and the whole experience really fun.

We held a gala dinner for over 200 guests at the Palais Gharnata in Marrakech and could not be happier with how it turned out. Nadia was extremely helpful in helping us arrange a wonderful dinner with entertainment and was flexible in accommodating our various dietary requirements and issues. I cannot speak highly enough about the venue and the quality... More

Charm and luxury of a 16th century palace : Palais Gharnata is magical ! As traditional moroccan meals, service, ambiance are excellent, and prices are fair, don't miss it !

The decor was stunning, the staff were helpful, courteous, happy and smiling. Showered with rose petals from the balconies above (on arrival) the drinks service was excellent. I understand the catering is done off site and is brought in but was excellent. Cabaret of four attractive dancers topped off by a group of exciting Berber musicians with an infectious,driving beat... More

What a surprise, tucked away down a very unassuming back street, but well worth finding. A stunning interior, majestic and fabulously beautiful. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. We used Palais Gharnatta for a dinner for 200 ! but its alcoves and booths make it an intimate location for any size group.... More

Description
Set in an ancient alleyway dating in Marrakech���s Jewish quarter, Palais Gharnata restaurant possesses a rarefied luxury that comes only with the passing of time. Everything here speaks of grand antiquity, of North African exoticism and beauty. Handcarved cedar woodwork, ornate sculpture and carvings, handsome waiters dressed in loose white cotton, trays elegantly poised above their right shoulder��� it���s a magical world. A formal dining space, Palais Gharnat specialises is Morroccan cuisine. Begin perhaps, with a pastilla of tender pigeon and crushed almonds in a soft aromatic dough, as a bottle of fine local vintage is opened, and the aroma of spiced lamb curls up inside your nose. The best tables are on the mezzanine, overlooking the set-piece central fountain.
