Description: La Table Al Badia, where time holds on, the time of a dinner ... The philosophy at La Table Al Badia is to make you discover the genuine and traditional Moroccan cuisine, made only from fresh local produces. According our needs and reservations, we do provision daily, from local producers who have their stalls at the market. Therefore the reservation is required the latest in the morning for the evening. Samira, the Chef at Riad Al Badia, continues the ancient tradition of the art of hospitality in Morocco. Everything is made on-site, from breakfast until dinner around tajines, assortment of Moroccan salads, soups or briouates, different sorts of breads ... According to her mood of the day, according to the fresh seasonal produces available, Samira will make you enjoy a 3 courses set menu of the genuine cuisine of the Moroccan <>, sometimes using millenium vegetables (already traditionally used in Mediterranean, Roman or Persian cuisines). To have a dinner at La Table Al Badia? This is a tasty experience, a journey through the culinary materials and flavors, made of a delicate blend of sweet and salty flavors and our tasty oriental spices.

“Probably the best meal we had in Marakesh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We ate twice at Al Badia while staying in this lovely Riad. Me and my husband do not eat meat but fish and vegetarian food, Laurent said this would not be a problem. They custom made a purely vegetarian meal for us with traditional vegetable starters with local breads, a vegetable Tajine main course and a fruit tajine for desert. The only addition we would have added would have been beans or lentils in the main to make it truly vegetarian. The produce used was very fresh and very well priced for the quality of the food and the service was excellent .

Dear Madam,
I thank you for this lovely review and Samira noted your feedback so precious. Moroccan food has so many vegetables, salads and possibilities, that ii is easy for vegetarians to eat decently. We just need to be informed ahead at time of booking and Samira will adapt her Cuisine accordingly. Thank you again and we all hope to see you again in a not too far future.

“delicious meal with impeccable service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Dinner is a set 3 course meal. The ingredients are sourced daily from the market. With notice either early morning or the day before, likes and dislikes can be catered for. We had 2 dinners at Al Badia.
The starters were 3 varied Moroccan salad type dishes, different on the 2 nights and all delicious. The main courses were couscous with lamb which was tender and tasty, and a chicken tajine with figs and almonds, which again was delicious, but the chicken was a little tough. The desserts were excellent.

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Wonderful meal served whenever you wanted to eat it. You just had to order in the morning so the staff could buy fresh produce on the day which wasn't a problem to us.

Dear Madam,
I thank you for your lovely comment, it has been a pleasure to receive you at the Riad and count you for dinner. Samira was excited to make to discover her fresh home-made Moroccan Cuisine. Thank you to remind our philosophy, just fresh products from the market of the day, no stock, no pre-cooked food, no frozen food; just fresh food and only what we need, so a reservation ahead is required. Thank you very much and hopefully we will see you again in a not too far future.

“Happy we stayed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We stayed in this riad and had to have a dinner there, after my spa visit, to continue to have a relaxing day. Great food. They even asked us what we did not like (green peppers) when we made the reservation. Well worth it...great food. You can also bring your own bottle of wine,yet the wine offered at the riad was lovely.

Dear Madam,
I thank you for this lovely review, to get the best out of Samira, is to let her do. We do require some directions or information of restrictions such as allergy or what you would not eat, and then, let Samira do... She was delighted to receive you and we all hope to see you again, remember to book dinner ahead, at least in the morning for the evening, earlier is even better ! Thank you for all you gave us.
