Having trawled TripAdvisor for good restaurants in Marrakech, I booked to dine here, before we even left the UK. Communication via email was easy and cordial. One has to choose when booking, what you would like for the main meal and we both chose the Lamb and Fig tagine - more of that later. Finding the restaurant was a main... More

We go there for a romantic dinner in Marrakech. The atmosphere was great but the food was poor. They have standard menu for 55 euros per person. It is only for tourists with this money you can have great dinner in the heart of medina in Marrakech for 2 days at least.

We stayed at the Riad over the Christmas holiday. Ate several meals, both on the roof and in the dining room. Everything truly exceeded our expectations. A memorable place.

We had the new year's eve celebration in the Riad Kniza. There is only a word to describe it: fabulous. The cost was 120 euros per person but the food (tajin or couscous), plus drinks including champagne and wines, the welcoming cocktail, the musicians, etc etc etc were outstanding. The Riad like most of Riads in Marrakech are located in... More

Hidden away down a side street this restaurant was such a great introduction to Moroccan food and being a set menu it made it so easy. We ate on the roof terrace which was so peaceful and beautiful. Unfortunately the fish tagine wasn't available the day we went so I had vegetarian, the rest of my family had lamb and... More

We stayed at Road Kniza for our first 2 nights and ate there on our first night. What a magnificent introduction to Moroccan cuisine. It is a set menu with a choice of meal for your tagine. My wife and I both had the Lamb tagine which was falling off the bone, melt in the mouth, delicious. The giant selection... More
