From the first pouring of mint tea, to roses floating in the fountain, to the perfumed sheets, every detail at Riad Kniza was...sensuous and romantic as all get out!
In the heart of the medina is this tranquil 18th-century haven. It's brimming with handmade antiques. The Yakout suite was like a palace in itself: a tiled fireplace, a carved ceiling and lanterns. We met the antiques dealer Haj Mohamed at the hamam.
There's no menu. The staff asks what you're in the mood to eat. Each meal is prepared with fresh ingredients from the market, so order a couple hours in advance! We dined on tagines and kebabs on the roof terrace.
Best table in town! Views of the moon over the Atlas Mountains and echoes of the call to prayer from the Koutoubia Mosque.
