The lunch at this riad was superb and the staff very attentive. We had tajine and mezas were authentic and very nicely served. A definite recommendation.

“Cookery Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We enjoyed a cookery course at Riad Kniza last Thursday. I booked and arranged the course from the UK before we left. There were six of us for the course and we arrived at 11.00 am to meet our Chef. We were taken to the market to buy the ingredients, vegetables, meat and spices and then back to prepare. We were all given chefs whites and we set about preparing a rather interesting lunch.We made a lamb tagine, flat breads and various vegetable dishes and the use of spice was quite amazing.
We were then served the lunch that we had prepared on the most beautiful of roof terraces and the food was amazing. The staff were very attentive and we were given a tour of the property which is stunning. I would recommend anyone to try the course no matter what your skill level and very reasonable at 55 Euros
I would love to stay there if I return to Marrakech

“Delicious! And very accommodating for a Vegetarian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

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.

“Very friendly and helpful staff, food OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

The best thing about this restaurant is the location in the beautiful Riad which has been restored beautifully. You can choose to dine either at the rooftop (preferred) or near the courtyard on the ground floor. The traditional Moroccan food is good, but nothing to write home about. The tajines were the best and the salads were pretty good. There was no space for dessert after the meal, which was very filling. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in arranging enough food for us.
