Palais Bayram

A restaurant interior reminiscent of Palais Bayram, with stone walls and arched ceilings, features tan tablecloths on tables set with glassware and folded napkins, all surrounded by cushioned chairs.

As the sun began to set, we found ourselves stepping through the ornate doors of Palais Bayram, a stunningly restored palace in the heart of Tunis’ Medina. This architectural gem, now a luxurious hotel, promises an authentic glimpse into the grandeur of traditional Tunisia, and it did not disappoint.

medinaUpon entering, we were immediately struck by the intricate details of the décor—elaborate tiles, carved wooden panels, and shimmering chandeliers—all whispering stories of yesteryears. The courtyards offered a tranquil escape from the bustling Medina outside.

Our visit was crowned with a dinner at the hotel’s prestigious restaurant, which turned out to be a wonderful experience which we covered in the following reel.

We began with Marka Hloua, a sweet Tunisian stew that enchanted us with its subtle blend of salty and sweet. The dish was a perfect start, setting the stage for what was to come.

Next, we savoured the Couscous Borzguen, a regional specialty that boasted vibrant flavours. The couscous was perfectly steamed, paired with a hearty and spicy vegetable broth. But the highlight of our meal was undoubtedly the Octopus with Bulgur. The octopus, cooked to tender perfection, melded beautifully with the textured bulgur, creating a symphony of taste and texture that was wonderful.

To finish, we indulged in a serving of Turkish Kounefa, a sweet cheese pastry soaked in syrup, which provided a delightful contrast to the savoury richness of our main courses.

The service throughout the evening was impeccable; attentive yet unobtrusive, adding to the overall enchantment of the night. Our visit to Palais Bayram was more than just a dinner; it was a dive into the heart of Tunisian luxury and hospitality.
