Awesome food in stunning setting - fantastic!

My husband and I dined here for our Boxing Day treat, and weren't disappointed at all. Having been led through the tranquil, stunning riad, we were shown to our table in the intimate dining room and enjoyed a simply sensational Moroccan meal.

The restaurant is located in a more than beautiful hotel, with several inside courts. wonderful interiors. But the restaurant only serves just one (3 or 4 courses) meal, with no selection of wines (only a choice between red, white or rosé). The service is friendly but slow. There are many more better restaurants in Marrakech.

Greetings from Riad Kniza! While we thank this reviewer for the comment on how beautiful our property is, I cannot agree with the rest because it is simply untrue. This is easily verifiable by anyone who takes the time to visit our restaurant web page. Here is how we work: We only serve a maximum of 9 tables a day... More

We ate at Riad Kniza last night having been forced to make a Tagine choice when booking the table online. The building is beautiful but the meal was totally disappointing and not up to the reviews. It was dominated by filo pastry which was served for 3 courses! The chicken tagine was a thigh of chicken totally dry and overcooked.... More

I take moroccan salad & fish tadjin - they were best.. Exellent interiors, quiet, fireside, friendly waiters - everythig is OK. If you will take wine - ask about dry wine because white wine may be sweet. Red wine is ok. Please print map before - Marrakech not so simple city!

The restaurant is in a very authentic Moroccan setting which is beautiful. The food and the service is excellent and reasonably priced for the standard of hotel. Would definitely visit again when I return to Morocco

At here last week whilst staying in Marrakech for 4 days. The food was very good, well cooked and plentiful, using local fresh ingredients. We also ate at the Riad Moncau where the food was similar and also good. I think both are expensive and know that you can eat just as well in other places in the city at... More

The staff were very attentive and friendly with nothing was too much trouble. The owner greeted us and showed us around the Riad before we had a cooking demonstration of our evening meal. The food was fabulous... More

There is so much to choose from in Marrakech. If you want to escape the madness of the Medina, and you're looking to get off the tourist belly-dancing circuit, but you want the best of traditional Moroccan cuising...this is for you. The Riad is near Bab Doukala - very easy to get to. The interiors are just breathtaking, and the... More

Booked ahead for evening meal via internet. Arrived early - exhausted after days sight-seeing. Could not have been looked after better - food and service were first class.
