“A beautiful Setting for a special meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

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 (hugely expensive in Moroccan terms but worth every penny). We loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to sample good Moroccan food.

“We cooked then we ate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

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!

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

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

“Top flight in Marrakech.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

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.
