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.

“Stunning!!!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

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 ended a sensational evening of entertainment with all the 53 in our party on our feet dancing.

A must !!.

“Fabulously friendly and welcoming”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

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.

Highly recommended.
