Collected by a staff member of this fabulous Riad, the experience started by walking through a Souk and along an unmade path of rubble, but on arrival - WOW - an oasis of wonder. Beautifully fragrant, exquisitely decorated and for 45 euros a head we were fed course after course of wonderfully tasting food with excellent service. We asked to meet the chef who appeared at our table. A young lady of small stance but the most amazing talent. Our only warning is to arrive hungry! Thank you Kniza for such an enjoyable opening evening in Marrakech!

The Riad is the epitome of service and elegance. At check in we were shown to a lovely salon where mint tea and Morrocan cookies were served while our paperwork was processed. Soft music and a warm fire added to the ambiance. Dinner was a series of courses that were unusual and delicious. Every aspect of our stay exceeded our expectations.

The hotel is tucked away and well worth a visit, traditional with delectable rooms and pool etc. but you don't have to eat here to see it! The fixed menu is 5 courses, heading inextricably to the tagine as usual, always avoid chicken as it is inevitably dry (everywhere), lamb is good other courses are simple and also common everywhere.

So why eat here in particular? The venue - perhaps, but honestly the food part is at least £20 equivalent more expensive than other high end tagine joints, on that price basis this makes Kniza restaurant on a par with my local UK Michelin starred restaurant where choice and cooking is better.

£50 per head just about including wine is excessive and other cheaper places comparable. If you have money to burn and realise one chicken/lamb tagine is much like any other - go and enjoy!

It was hard to find, but well worth the effort. We had a wonderful meal. The staff are fabulous, attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent, and the riad itself is stunningly beautiful.

One of the most romantic meals we have ever shared and we would love to go back again.

After eating at 6 different high end restaurants of Marrakech, I can say the Riad Kniza holds its own. Yummy, authentic Moroccan food served by a gracious staff in a tasteful and quiet setting -- with fireplaces roaring none the less! Highly recommended.
