Dinner at Riad Kniza

Last night we had the opportunity to have dinner at the award winning Riad Kniza. Recently, Riad Kniza was voted best in Africa by tripadvisor for their outstanding service. Because many of our 5 star riad clients stay in the Riad Kniza, we were pleased to hear of their award. Great job Riad Kniza!

An Amazing Taste of Morocco
Mr. Kamal, of the Riad Kniza, invited our family for a dinner meal at his riad. Having lived in Morocco for 10 years, my family of 6, have tasted numerous Moroccan meals. Last night’s dinner got a few “best ever comments…”. After being seated by Mohamed, our attentive waiter, we enjoyed the cozy atmosphere by the fireplace.

“Best seafood dish I have ever tasted!”
The first course was a seafood bastilla; shrimp and kalamari wrapped in a thin crust. Garnished with 2 slices of lemon and hot sauce, the combination was delightful. My eldest daughter remarked that it was the best seafood dish she had ever tasted.

The next course was an array of Moroccan salads and brioattes (morocco spring-roll). The salads tasted like home cooking! My son loved the brioattes, snatching up quite a few before the main dish arrived.

“The best chicken tagine ever”
As they delivered the main course of chicken with lemon and olives, my family go quite excited. My youngest daughter started to giggle as this was her favorite tagine in Morocco. She was not disappointed! As we enjoyed the tasty tagine, Riad Kniza won another award from my 2nd daughter, “That may have been the best chicken tagine I have ever eaten.”

Riad Kniza is truly a notch above most riads in Marrakech. I would highly recommend anyone to stay in this lovely riad. With only 13 rooms, the riad books up quickly, so make sure you contact us today for your reservation.
