Excellent Moroccan food in an authentic ambience. Meals are based on tagines, couscous and pastlles.

In its hey day the was probably a very lovely experience. This Riad is the height of luxury and has attracted celebrity visitors. You pay a high price to sit at a table around £320 for 4 of us. The food was a set menu and you chose your main course. The food was Ok but nothing super memorable .... More

We were staying at Riad Kniza so were more focused on outside restaurants, but what a wonderful treat. Well worth staying in. Food was wonderful and the service was even more impressive. I have rarely seen wait staff more focused and attentive. Riad is worth the visit even if you aren't staying there. First class in every respect.

Not only the food is excellent and the service is outstanding.... The place is magical. It does not matter if you are eating at one of the rooms at the lower level or in the terrace, you will feel like a Queen or King... each of of the rooms is fantastic. You can't go to Marrakesh and miss this riad.

First thing, amazing building and setting. Stunning................... Quite difficult to find but ask someone they will know. Set menu - although we didn't get one, but the waiter talked it through for us. Loads of food, did feel a bit rushed at times. Great flavours. Nice wine, we had the white. I would go back, although its quite pricey around... More

Having trawled TripAdvisor for good restaurants in Marrakech, I booked to dine here, before we even left the UK. Communication via email was easy and cordial. One has to choose when booking, what you would like for the main meal and we both chose the Lamb and Fig tagine - more of that later. Finding the restaurant was a main... More

We go there for a romantic dinner in Marrakech. The atmosphere was great but the food was poor. They have standard menu for 55 euros per person. It is only for tourists with this money you can have great dinner in the heart of medina in Marrakech for 2 days at least.

We stayed at the Riad over the Christmas holiday. Ate several meals, both on the roof and in the dining room. Everything truly exceeded our expectations. A memorable place.

We had the new year's eve celebration in the Riad Kniza. There is only a word to describe it: fabulous. The cost was 120 euros per person but the food (tajin or couscous), plus drinks including champagne and wines, the welcoming cocktail, the musicians, etc etc etc were outstanding. The Riad like most of Riads in Marrakech are located in... More
