Lovely food & service

I ate here a couple of times, and also tried a few other restaurants in town. It was my top choice. Highly recommended for food and service!

We visited the Riad Kniza based on the excellent TA reviews. I would agree with most of the points made in the recent reviews: the food is excellent and the service is good. Overall, the experience was enjoyable. Food: 5/5 This said, Riad Kniza is amongst the more pricey/high end of Marrakech restaurants and as such needs to be considered... More

We ate in the Riad Kniza restaurant, over 3-4 times during our stay and asked if they could tailor make our meals. My husband wanted to try out Moroccan specialties like the Tangia, Madfouna Rissani, and their traditional lamb shanks stew. All were amazing. One of our top favourites was their vegetable pastilla (the best pastilla we have ever tasted... More

Visited for our silver wedding anniversary meal and it certainly lived up to its reputation. we were met at the square. good idea, as it is a bit hard to find on your own. Shown the lovely read and given a tour by the manager. Beautiful riad and very quiet. We were shown to our dining room and offered water... More

We didn't stay here, but chose to eat on the basis of the TA recommendations that we had read. We had the set meal which was wonderful. The only thing was we were the only couple in the restaurant so there was no atmosphere - one other couple came just as we were leaving. Many of the Riads have outside... More

This Restaurant is 5* as is the hotel. But to get to it is a little over wheleming as you must walk thorugh a market area which is a bit scary. They will send a guide to meet you and bring you baclk to your taxi after your meal. The hotel itself is so beautiful with is tradionial Morroccan culture... More

We were collected by the Riad's host from our taxi and escorted to this wonderful place. We were booked in for a five course vegetarian meal to celebrate the first night of our honeymoon. We were given a tour of the Riad, then were seated in a private room, just off the central area. The decor was beautiful and relaxing,... More

We were a family of vegetarians and the staff prepared everything with our limitations in mind and with great care. The meals were truly special.

The place is amazing, it looks like mayhem outside and an oasis of beauty, luxury and calm inside. it's been meticulously restored. A bit too meticulously perhaps as it can feel a bit cold. Service was really amazing! I found the food disappointing a bit, but it's quite Moroccan as they use (too) much sugar f.e.. Some dishes lacked salt.... More
