Our meal in this Riad was outstanding. The Riad is truly spectacular to view and the food amazing. Quite expensive but amazing food.

“Service is the strong point”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We visited Riad Kniza for dinner after the many good reviews on TA. Location is not that difficult in reality although it does feel a little daunting when the taxi drops you off. All the comments about service are spot on; it's genuine from the moment you set foot in the door and for us was the strongest aspect. There is no wine list ; you can choose white, rose or red - all Moroccan wines. It would be unfair to judge the quality but all I will say is it wasn't for us and we chose not to drink it all. The food is plentiful and not one table in room ate everything. The menu is a set 5 course and the lamb was the best dish (you choose lamb, chicken or fish). It is a traditional style and one we are glad we experienced. Would we return? Probably not but well worth a visit.

“Very tasty food and good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

This place wasn't as hard to find as some suggest, the waiter will come and meet you in the nearby sook if you arrive by taxi. Some really unique and great tasting items as part of the feast, definitely don't have lunch before unless your a bit of a porker and can put away lots of food!

“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.
