The restaurant at Riad Kniza is just exquisite. The decor is sumptuous and luxurious and the food is delicious. The lamb and chicken tagines we had were beautifully melt-in-the-mouth and the staff were attentive without being overbearing.

Ate in one night whilst staying in the Riad and it was very nice. Good food by a nice fire, to hold off the winter chill, in a lovely room. We shared the mixed Moroccan starters then followed with a Lamb Tagine that was wonderful and Chicken skewers that, while tasty, were a tad on the dry side. No room... More

One friend in my group knows Marrakech and Moroccan cuisine very well and she confirmed that everything was perfect. We could tell the dishes were prepared with a lot of attention and love.

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The riad itself is the most beautiful we visited and saw several top ones during our 10 day trip. The multiple courses will ensure you don't leave hungry, but save room to enjoy the main course and dessert! The flavours were outstanding and honestly one of the top meals in Marrakech. Truly...

Went as a couple. Do not be out off by the journey there through some interesting streets. The door is opened to a calm oasis. We had the tasting menu at it was excellent. Service was good without being overly intrusive. Nice romantic atmosphere..

We were recommended this place by the concierge of our Riad and by other guests who had been a couple of nights before - he walked us over there as it's a bit hard to find. Beautiful Riad - we were given a tour. I began to be a bit concerned about the cost when we saw all the celebrity... More

We were celebrating my husband's very 'big' birthday and having visited Kniza earlier in the week knew this was where we wanted to be on that evening. We were not disappointed! This isn't just a restaurant it's a dining experience. Fantastic food, service and ambience. A live band of two were non obtrusive but excellent background music. Their rendition of... More

While staying at this amazing hotel, I had their set course dinner and loved it. Dining is in a traditional salon off one of the interior courtyards at this boutique property. Stunning tile work, art and decoration. Live traditional Moroccan music. And great food: starters, then 7 plates of delicious Moroccan vegetable salad mezze, then a wonderful cous cous, followed...

A magnificent Moroccan styled-meal with chicken pastilla, assorted mezze, chicken, fish & lamb tagines and royal couscous, and crème pastilla to finish. The highlight was the lamb tagine but overall it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time

Thank Stephen L
