Morrocan true experience

Gorgeous surroundings, musicians, lovely food. Salad is not salad it is rather like tapas. The Tagines were beautifully cooked.

I have booked a table in Riad Kniza for my partners birthday dinner. The Riad was a bit difficult to find but behind the door hides a different world. We were shown around the beautiful property and felt immediately welcome. The dining room was very grand and comfortable and the dinner very delicious and plentiful. I have indicated in my... More

The food was ordered prior to arrival. We all had tagine which was wonderful. The service was impeccable and the local beers and wine weren't bad either.

We visited many riads during our trip and riad Kniza was the most beautifully restored riad of all. The owner was there during our visit and is an friendly, warm personality. Food is simple Moroccan fare prepared and served with excellent service. The price I believe is very high for the value received in the end. I would pay a... More

The restaurant is in a large but nicely restored riad (you'll be struck by the particularly bling chandeliers). The reception is charming and the staff as a whole couldn't be more pleasant. The traditional Moroccan food is less successful - the salads, so often a high point of Moroccan meals, were small, obviously preplated and too cold while the three... More

We had three dinners at the Riad Knazi restaurant during our stay at the riad. We arrived after an overnight flight and had arranged for a lamb tagine dinner. It was an excellent introduction to Moroccan food. On our final night, we opted for a break from Moroccan fare and had fresh Mediterranean fish. We had a typical Moroccan breakfast... More

Our only regret is that we did not arrange to stay at this Riad. We had dinner here and it was excellent. We also had the pleasure of having the owner as our guide for the afternoon. The food was wonderful at the restaurant . We had a tour of the hotel with its spa. I really can't say enough... More
