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.

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 of food and service we received; all of our guests raved about the meal. I would definitely recommend the Palais Gharnata to anyone arranging a large gala dinner in Marrakech.

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 !!.
