A wonderful ambiance in the riad and not too expensive compared with other similar restaurants in Marrakesh.

We visited many riads during our trip and riad Kniza was the most beautifully restored riad of all. The owner was there during our visit and is an friendly, warm personality. Food is simple Moroccan fare prepared and served with excellent service. The price I believe is very high for the value received in the end. I would pay a... More

The restaurant is in a large but nicely restored riad (you'll be struck by the particularly bling chandeliers). The reception is charming and the staff as a whole couldn't be more pleasant. The traditional Moroccan food is less successful - the salads, so often a high point of Moroccan meals, were small, obviously preplated and too cold while the three... More

We had three dinners at the Riad Knazi restaurant during our stay at the riad. We arrived after an overnight flight and had arranged for a lamb tagine dinner. It was an excellent introduction to Moroccan food. On our final night, we opted for a break from Moroccan fare and had fresh Mediterranean fish. We had a typical Moroccan breakfast... More

Our only regret is that we did not arrange to stay at this Riad. We had dinner here and it was excellent. We also had the pleasure of having the owner as our guide for the afternoon. The food was wonderful at the restaurant . We had a tour of the hotel with its spa. I really can't say enough... More

This restaurant was amazing. We opted to have dinner on the roof and it was a great time. The table, within a roof cabana, was set for our arrival with rose petals, wine, champagne. it was a very nice environment to sit outside under the sky and have a dinner. The food itself was top notch as well. The Tangine... More

We stayed at the "La Maison Arabe" (which was fantastic!) for a week and felt we needed to eat somewhere else for a change... "Riad Kniza" Restaurant was an enchanting experience in every way! The Riad hotel part itself is most likely one of the most beautiful buildings of this type around (ask for a tour!)! It is like entering... More

It is a set meal of many courses with a choice of Tagine. You need to be hungry because it is all delicious. Service is very good & the dining room is beautiful.
