“Very disappointed considering the high prices.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I invited here an English friend of mine who wanted try d to have a typical Moroccan dinner in a riad. The place is stunning and the service quite good, but the quality of the 5 courses set menu is very poor and the Moroccan wine served it was as well very low quality: I was very disappointed considering the high prices paid.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

A beautiful place and the general atmosphere more wonderful and delicious eating does not compare to any other restaurant. Catering in a professional manner and with a smile not dissociation employees. Location and trims global and its amazing design and Pensions steals kernels and amazing. One negative point that prices are high but the place is worthy of going

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!
