Heartbursting. An experience to build a relationship or marrige on. I'm the fussiest person in the world (person of hight standards in a nicer way to describe me), the charming, cheap but dull main square restaurants didn't impress me too much. On the second day of our vacation my boyfriend took me to Kniza - which was LUCIKLY - very... More

There could not be a more perfect venue than Riad Kniza for any occasion. Ours happened to be the introduction of the bride's Moroccan and French family to the groom's American family. The evening began with refreshments on the roof-top terrace with views of the entire city of Marrakech, downstairs the dining room seated our party easily and felt like... More

Go hungry as the food is lovely and it would be a shame to leave a morsel. All the staff made us feel welcome. Our waiter was informative about the food. He was attentive but not intrusive. The Morrocan red was fine ( there is no list, a choice of colour is offered) We came away feeling VERY full ,... More

We had dinner here on our first night in Marrakech. You have to have a build an appetite to enjoy this 5 course meal. From the soup to the salad and the tagine, the food was superbly prepared and tasted delicious. The staff were discreet and served well. Atmosphere was great . A great way to start our trip

I chose to visit this restaurant with my husband after reading some of the reviews on trip advisor and was definitely not disappointed. This is a family owned restaurant and could tell straight away how proud this family was of their business as they were working extremely hard all night to ensure each table was getting the best service possible....

My boyfriend and I dinned here our first night in Marrakech, and we ate very well here. The food was divine and the staff was super friendly and helpful. The riad itself is beautiful, and very romantic. So, If you want to have a tasty dinner in a romantic atmosphere with great service and staff, then this is the place!

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...
