Riad Kniza stands as the polar opposite to Gastro MK, they both charge the same for a set menu but where Gastro MK offers an innovative and quite brilliant take on Moroccan food, Riad Kniza provides you with the traditional version and is an essential counterpoint to Gastro MK. Yes the wine list is non-existant but quite frankly the food... More

I invited here an English friend of mine who wanted try d to have a typical Moroccan dinner in a riad. The place is stunning and the service quite good, but the quality of the 5 courses set menu is very poor and the Moroccan wine served it was as well very low quality: I was very disappointed considering the...

A beautiful place and the general atmosphere more wonderful and delicious eating does not compare to any other restaurant. Catering in a professional manner and with a smile not dissociation employees. Location and trims global and its amazing design and Pensions steals kernels and amazing. One negative point that prices are high but the place is worthy of going

Our meal in this Riad was outstanding. The Riad is truly spectacular to view and the food amazing. Quite expensive but amazing food.

We visited Riad Kniza for dinner after the many good reviews on TA. Location is not that difficult in reality although it does feel a little daunting when the taxi drops you off. All the comments about service are spot on; it's genuine from the moment you set foot in the door and for us was the strongest aspect. There... More

This place wasn't as hard to find as some suggest, the waiter will come and meet you in the nearby sook if you arrive by taxi. Some really unique and great tasting items as part of the feast, definitely don't have lunch before unless your a bit of a porker and can put away lots of food!

We found this on trip advisor as it was so close to our riad. The hotel is deceptively large and staff friendly. The food although good isn't exceptional. When booking we were asked what meat we would like for our main. I would suggest that unless you want the five course menu to ask for 3 when booking. However the... More

We had a fantastic dinner in the very cosy Riad. Might not have the cheapest meal we had during the trip but was totally worth it. Service was really friendly. The Riad is beautiful, the dining room was very cosy with a fireplace and delicate presentation. We truly recommend this place.

We ate at Riad Kniza on our last night in Marrakech. The meal was the most expensive we had but the food was up there with the best. The service in the restaurant was impeccable, couldn't have asked for anything more. Make sure you go with an appetite as there is plenty to eat! The food itself was very good.... More

While the food was good, we had even better during our stay in Marrakesh but the service and atmosphere were so wonderful, truly exquisite that it's worth the visit to experience it. Definitely expensive but the portions are large and the food tasty so you leave all in all satisfied.

Thank bwack
