Honestly, I had one of the best meals in all of Marrakesh. The decoration is also very elegant, classy, and quite magical. To top it off, the service was very friendly and the reception warm. It really was a memorable experience

My husband and I decided to do our wedding in Morocco and preferred a truly Moroccan location for our wedding especially that we live in Qatar and many of our friends and family were flying in for our wedding so we wanted to give them a lifetime experience and get them to truly experience the real Moroccan traditions.

I spent a week in Marrakesh and this was by far the best meal my friends and I shared. The location is fantastic and the architecture is breathtaking. Not only were the food and wine delicious, but the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Would go there again in a heartbeat.

Our tour guide insisted on bringing us here. He wanted us to see the belly dancing. There was none. We had missed it. We were the only people in the restaurant. It was very pricey, not good and just bad quality. We learned that the tour guides get a commission for the tourists they bring in. Sent 8 days in... More

We were taken to this restaurant on the first night of our holiday and were seated at the side of the immense, beautiful room. Apart from one other table across the floor, there were no other customers! It was very dark and we had difficulty reading the menu. The waiter offered 2 prices and we chose the food in the... More

The location is very good. charming atmosphere. The staff was courteous and helpful. Moroccan Salad beautiful but literally sucks the other dishes. Couscous with meat for dinner and we were seven people had two pieces of meat. If you do not want to stay hungry I suggest you to choose a better alternative.

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.

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.
