“Best Moroccan experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We came here by chance, after reading the wonderful reviews left by previous customers on Tripadvisor, and we can confidently say it is the best place we visited in Marrakech for dining so far. From beginning to end, the experience was beyond perfect- service was incredible, nice and attentive yet very discrete. The riad itself is sublime, with a lovely perfume of roses that fills every room. The food was delicious- I could keep writing for hours, but all I can say is go and visit and try it yourself, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for an unforgettable experience Riad Kniza!!!!

“Incredible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Perfect service, wonderful place, extremely romantic, however the food was not up to what we had expected. Excellent chicken pastilla though.

“Fantastic food and unbelievable service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

From beginning to end I have never received as warm a welcome!

The food was truly amazing, two people, five course and one bottle of lovely Moroccan wine, all for 990 dirhams.

“Elegant and quality dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

This is a stunning Riad. Difficult to find, but isn't everything in Marrakech. It's a set menu of Moroccan specialities, served over 5 courses. It starts with soup, then the pigeon pastry, selection of vegetables, tagine course and then the dessert. It's a massive meal, maybe too much, but the service is excellent and the surroundings are very elegant. It's a special occasion restaurant with bill to go with it. But definitely worth making the trip. Always book, as this place gets busy.
