Delicious tagines, cous cous and pastries. We ate here for one dinner, one lunch and four breakfasts. Delicious. Also, the kitchen is spotless! Service is impeccable. Eat up on the roof terrace if you can and watch the sun set.

On a 3 day trip to Marrakech, we dined at the Riad Kniza on our last night. It is a grand riad, beautifully restored, but perhaps slightly impersonal compared to where we stayed (Riad Dar Anika - see seperate review). We were put in a...More
