Perfect service, wonderful place, extremely romantic, however the food was not up to what we had expected. Excellent chicken pastilla though.

From beginning to end I have never received as warm a welcome! The food was truly amazing, two people, five course and one bottle of lovely Moroccan wine, all for 990 dirhams.

This is a stunning Riad. Difficult to find, but isn't everything in Marrakech. It's a set menu of Moroccan specialities, served over 5 courses. It starts with soup, then the pigeon pastry, selection of vegetables, tagine course and then the dessert. It's a massive meal, maybe too much, but the service is excellent and the surroundings are very elegant. It's... More

Comfortable, elegant, exclusive atmosphere but very friendly -- the owner made a point of meeting everyone after dinner. Superb traditional Moroccan dishes, make sure you pace yourself!

Went to Riad Kniza for dinner in Feb 2014 and thought that it was terrific. The Riad is down a side street and was a little difficult to find but that is quite usual in Marrakech, but we found it in the daylight with some help and then it was easy in the evening. The Riad is quite beautiful with... More

Anyone who doesn't rate this restaurant 5* needs to come out from under their rock. Riad Kniza was fantastic. The Riad is set down a side street (like all) and was a little difficult to find but that is normal in Marrakech. Once we arrived it was certainly worth the trip. Riad Kniza is absolutely beautiful, the ambiance is wonderful.... More

In the Medina, not difficult to find with the help of one of the street boys by paying a small tip. The restaurant has an elegant atmosphere, with nice decor and we received a warm welcome from the owner. Professional service even if a little formal. Unfortunately they serve a set menu of ordinary Moroccan cuisine and few low quality... More

The place is stunning and the service is absolutely top class. It's almost too much. But if you want a memorable and special night out, this is the 'go to' place, without question. The food is good but not great, and not really a lot better than other good Marrakech restaurants, but who cares?!
