Recommended and booked as not an establishment to try and simply turn up to with simple expectation for a pure Morrocan food experience. Astonishing place to visit, as arrival is very much in a regular area of the Souk in the old walled area in Marrakech and could be considered a little intimidating for a tourist on their own, however...

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.

A wonderful ambiance in the riad and not too expensive compared with other similar restaurants in Marrakesh.

We have just returned from 4 days in Marrakesh. The owners and staff of Riad Kniza helped to make it a very memorable stay. We had meals in the other very expensive hotels of Marrakesh but the food inRiad Kniza was the best of all. The hotel and staff deserve every one of the five stars we have given them.

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
