What You Can Expect

Marrakech Dinner and Show in a Moroccan Palace

Enjoy typical Moroccan food such as chicken tagine in your dinner and show experience

If you want to enjoy a traditional Moroccan evening in luxury, this experience should not be missed. The food is fantastic and the music and entertainment create a wonderful atmosphere.

Select your chosen restaurant and begin your evening with a pickup at your central Marrakech hotel or Djemaa El-Fna, the city’s central square. This bustling expanse forms the heart of Marrakech’s UNESCO-listed old medina, with its maze-like streets and souks.
Next, head for your chosen restaurant — the Palais Gharnata or Palais Arabe, tucked away in the medina. Each set in a gorgeously restored Moroccan palace, both provide a glittering setting for your meal, with high archways, inlaid cedar wood and blue-tiled interiors that capture the essence of medieval Morocco. The Palais Gharnata is housed in a wonderful 16th-century mansion, while the Palais Arabe occupies the magnificent former home of a noble family.

Head inside and be seated at your table. Then, soak up the magical atmosphere and ornate, lantern-lit surroundings as you dine on Moroccan classics such as tender tagine, couscous and melt-in-the-mouth dessert pastries. See the Itinerary for sample menus.
As you eat, enjoy a splendid folklore show of Moroccan dancing and music.  Watch shimmying belly dancers and enjoy traditional songs and music that speak of the country’s intertwined Andalusian and Arabic heritages.

After your meal, your outing finishes with a drop-off at your original start point.

Please note: Currently Palais Gharnata is not available for bookings

My adult son and I were the only ones on this night! We had a private belly dance show and band! The food was way too generous- tip, only eat a half or quarter of what you're given! There's 5-6 courses! We both were invited by the belly dancer to dance with her, so you can imagine we had a fun night

I went to the Palais Arabe Restaurant.
The foor was very good and the musicians were very nice.
But there was no live dancing and the restaurant seemed abandoned, I was the only customer that night.

Palais Arabe two thirds empty and difficult to find. Toilets basic and poorly maintained. Good food, well presented but possible cause of stomach upset in two of our group. Entertainment adequate but only about the same in provided free in any 4 star hotel.

Kind of a weird situation... we were the only ones there for most of the evening but 3 musicians still played for us which was nice. The food was decent, a dancer came out with candles on her head but I got the feeling all the performers were expecting plenty of tips. Way too expensive for what we got. Plus the "palace" was receiving some renovations so one of the walls consisted of plastic wrap which didn't make a good backdrop for pictures.

This was not a show. It was dinner with some music (3 guys playing instruments) and one belly dancer. The belly dancer walked from table to table, and gave an okay performance. We were expecting a real SHOW to take place on the dance floor, but that was not what we got. The food was good, and the musicians were entertaining; however it was not as advertised, and not worth the price.

I couldn't enjoy the dinner voucher since nobody answered the phone, nobody picked me up. I have contacted Viator twice regarding this situation but so far no answer.
