Amazing

We hate on the rooftop terrasse, which was absolutely divine. There was so much food and everything was delicious (poulet citron, agneau pruneau, toutes les entrées, la soupe...). The service was amazing!

Our family of 3 had an intimate dinner in our own little room in the Riad. Amazing decorations, very friendly, helpful staff and lovely traditional food. The meal was pretty huge and more expensive than other places but worthwhile. The pastille to start was amazing and all the salads that followed were fantastic! Well worth a visit!

We were lucky enough to stay at Riad Kniza for 5 nights and choose to eat in the Riad on our last night. They have several rooms off the courtyards with some of the rooms only having 1 table for privacy. The food was divine and there was LOTS of it. It was like a 6 course tasting menu with... More

We enjoyed this dinner in probably the most beautiful Riad we've ever been into. After looking for the Ryad in dark narrow street, we were very welcomed with a tour around the Riad (nice touch). There were serving only 4 tables so this restaurant is perfect if you want an intimate dinner with good service. They only offered one menu... More

We just had what I could comfortably call the best Moroccan food we've ever had in our lives! You get served a full course of oh so delish home cooked food with love. The service was excellent and staff very friendly. Definitely going back very soon.

We were staying at the Riad and requested a private dinner for an anniversary. Great food, service and atmosphere, you feel like a king when eating here. If you are looking for a romantic/special occation night, go here!

We stopped off here to treat ourselves after a hard week riding in the mountains and weren't disappointed. It would be a stunning place to stay at too but even just a dinner was a great experience - highly recommended.

Had just the best Moroccan meal in town here. Huge amounts, superb quality and excellent service and ambience. With Berber music thrown in. Would certainly dine here,especially if staying here.

Absolutely perfect dinner! The food (lamb) was delicious and the staff is the best in Morocco! Ambiente is wonderful, you wouldn't expect such a place in this area.

We had two excellent meals here, would recommend but food is not off a menu but their 'daily' take is served.
