Refined Morrocan cuisine presented in an fitting environment

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

Not the cheapest but one of the best. All courses tasty, well prepared and cooked. Excellent lamb and chicken tagines.

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
