The result is amazing. The service is excellent and you also get information on the dish you are eating. We had a starter of Moroccan salads and... More

We had two dinners at La Table Al Badia in February 2016. A great experience! The Riad al Badia is a small guesthouse with an intimate, familial atmosphere. There is a lovely roof terrace with several tables and great views of the Berrima mosque and the Atlas mountains. In the cold months, meals are served downstairs in a small area... More

An interesting, well cooked meal using seasonal (quince) ingredients. The three salads first course were colourful, had a variety of textures and flavours. The main course tagine was an aromatic dish of lamb and quince with spices, served with cous cous. Luckily the dessert was fruit, delicious fruit. I will add no further details......go an experience Samira's cooking for yourself.... More

An absolutely delicious traditional Moroccan meal cooked by the lovely Samira. There was a fixed three course meal at a very reasonable price with large servings. The food was fresh from the market place. All the staff were excellent. They were polite, informative and very attentive. We went for my wife's birthday and they prepared a cake for her which...

The ambience is very nice (quiet, personal and intimate) and the food, excellent. We had as starters several Moroccan salads (excellent) and a original taijin.

Marvelous food! Great service. A real pleasure. The mix of salad at the beginning was truly delicious. And the cool listened to the specific veggie+ requirements. On top, we clearly appreciated the initiation to the Moroccan way of eating. Get ready to get your hands dirty (if you'd like!). Thanks again!
