We wanted to splash out on a special meal and I'm glad we chose Kniza. It's very difficult to find but if you start at the wall end of Bab Doukala, it's the second avenue on the right. The staff couldn't be friendlier and more attentive. A 5 course set meal cost around £90 with a good bottle of wine... More

We did a morning at the cookery school under the expert guidance of Amina. Then ate our meal on the glorious terrace with wonderful service. What a place!

Stunning setting. Amazing food and perfect service. Highly recommended for a romantic evening away from the labyrinthine chaos of marrakesh street life

Lamb Tagine .... Yum! And the starter was a great selection of delicious Moroccan treats. Have your food on the roof terrace - very nice in the evening as the sun sets. You can hear the call to prayer echo out across the city

We have been in Morocco for over a week and this was the best meal we've had. From the beautiful riad, roof-top ding, excellent service and 5 course dinner, we enjoyed every moment of the experience. The highlight of the meal was the perfect chicken tangine, with the well-spiced chicken falling off the bones and melting in our mouths.

When we arrived the very friendly manager showed us around the Riad and told us a little about its history. We had a choice of tables and chose to sit on the roof terrace in a lovely tented area. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and a funny guy. He made us feel welcomed and was not too intrusive. It... More

The lamb tagine is beautiful. So much food, it just keeps coming. Choice of eating on the roof terrace or in the sumptuous restaurant.

What a lovely place to have dinner. You walk through some questionable alleys and enter through a small doorway into a beautiful old home that has been lovingly restored. We had drinks on the rooftop and then dinner out in the garden next to the pool. Too many dishes to count, but all were delicious. I just wish we could... More
