Authentic Marrakech Riad

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... read 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

Wonderful presentation of the food and flavors. Service is consistent. The dining room isn't really a dining room but a character-filled traditional Moroccan space within the Road.

An amazing little retreat in the middle of mad Marrakech! The service levels are second to none, and the suite we had was simply wonderful. Highly recommended, and worthwhile taking advantage of their special packages.

Went for dinner to Riad Kniza on Sunday 31st May. We were seated in a lovely room with a beautifully set table. No menu was shown to us so we did not know what to expect... Then dish after dish started coming! Soup, pastilla, brick fill pastry and veg puree, delicious lamb tajine with prune, apricot and almonds. We had... More
