My husband and I ate lunch on the roof deck at Riad Kniza, and it was the best meal (Moroccan or otherwise) we had in Marrakesh. The Riad itself is stunning - beautifully and tastefully decorated - and we would definitely consider staying there on another visit. We stayed at La Mamounia, which was absolutely gorgeous, but had mediocre food.... More

Booked into Riad Kniza for dinner after reading reviews on tripadvisor. What an inpressive Riad, Staff were incerdible, so much food, great wine and the owner Mohammed would come and check on us to see if everything was ok, cannot reccommend this place enough. It is a big Riad and wouldn't mind staying here next time we visit Marrakech. Thank... More

6 of us spent three nights in this beautiful riad to celebrate my 50th birthday. In beautiful surroundings we enjoyed fantastic service and stayed in luxurious clean bedrooms. My birthday dinner was served on the roof terrace indulging in a super meal and again service excelent. Would highly recommend both accommodation and restaurant!

We stayed at Riad Kniza and ate breakfast and lunch there every day.  Meals were served either in your room, in one of the private salons or on the roof terrace.  We chose the roof terrace each day and sat in the shade in one of the "bedouin" tents, admiring the view.Breakfast was an enormous feast of pastries, breads, pancakes...

Beautiful Riad with very good attentive service. The food is excellent - we had a gorgeous lamb tagine on our first night there - and there is a lovely roof terrace overlooking the rooftops of Marrakech. Near Bab Doukkala, which is half way between Djemaa El Fna and Gueliz, hidden away down an unpromising alley it's a beautiful haven in... More

we just went there for lunch recently because the owner who is perhaps marrakesh's most distinguished guide invited us to his riad for the lunch break. they were aware ahead of time of my wife's inability to eat anything with garlic or onion (or anything in the onion family) and removing this from moroccan cuisine is not easy. nevertheless they...

For our 1st Year wedding anniversary, my husband found this restaurant on Google under best restaurants in Marrakech and we both agreed that for what we were looking for we got much more than what we had hoped. We wanted to taste on our final night in town some authentic Moroccan food rather than just going to one of the... More

We stayed in the Riad Kniza on the final leg of our Moroccan adventure & found it to be a superb choice. I have posted a seperate review of the Riad but thought the dining deserved a special mention. On our travels we had enjoyed some excellent Riad cooked meals & having had a fairly lacklustre introduction to dining in... More
