“Beautiful hotel, friendly staff could do with more atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We found this on trip advisor as it was so close to our riad. The hotel is deceptively large and staff friendly. The food although good isn't exceptional. When booking we were asked what meat we would like for our main. I would suggest that unless you want the five course menu to ask for 3 when booking. However the value for money, if you were able to eat everything was very good. The price for 5 courses was around £40 each not including drinks.

“Excellent meal and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a fantastic dinner in the very cosy Riad. Might not have the cheapest meal we had during the trip but was totally worth it.
Service was really friendly.
The Riad is beautiful, the dining room was very cosy with a fireplace and delicate presentation.
We truly recommend this place.

“Can barely fault it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We ate at Riad Kniza on our last night in Marrakech. The meal was the most expensive we had but the food was up there with the best.

The service in the restaurant was impeccable, couldn't have asked for anything more. Make sure you go with an appetite as there is plenty to eat!

The food itself was very good. I couldn't pick out an individual element which was better than the same dish I'd had here or there in Marrakech but the overall package was certainly by far the best in terms of consistency.

“Wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

While the food was good, we had even better during our stay in Marrakesh but the service and atmosphere were so wonderful, truly exquisite that it's worth the visit to experience it. Definitely expensive but the portions are large and the food tasty so you leave all in all satisfied.

“Moroccan food on fine china”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Semi private room with staff attending to all your whims. The food is very local and though I would prefer more spices than sweets the dining there is an exquisite and unforgettable experience
