Mainly went there because of the place they offer, such a pretty place that is even prettier at night. The food was average nothing exceptional and nothing so good you will crave a few days later. But really, for me, it is all about the great place they offer.

We had a nice dinner on the patio of the veranda - the night was beautiful and it was hard not to enjoy it, with a bottle of vin Gris. However, the food was only average (the beef was really bad but granted, this is not a Moroccan specialty - the fish we had was regular but nothing to rave... More

Good place; fine dining; excellent meals; a bit pricey (expensive), but the place in terms of quality-- can't beat it + it's by the Institut Francais.. in a quiet low key neighborhood, close to the tram stop by the Catedrale..

We had Christmas dinner here. It is a very good french kitchen. Quick and friendly service and the prices are good too. Not so expensive. A good experience for us. No pizza this time !! I can recommend this restaurant.

As part of L'Institut Francais in Rabat, this delightful bistro has the choice of garden or indoor dining. I had the menu du jour at 95DH and it was excellent value, starting with a salade nicoise (perfectly poached egg on top), and delicately cooked fish, rice and sauteed veg for the main course. The waiter apologized that the advertised dessert... More

Celebrate this great restaurant for now as I believe that imminent Moroccan legislation will mean the closing of food venues attached to cultural centres and museums - unfathomable! We loved our dinner here - the food was terrific, especially the desserts (the nougat icecream is tops!). The service was great and the ambience is just fantastic.

It's a restaurant inside the Morocco's French Institute, in the diplomatic city center of Rabat, with a tramway stop near. The quality of food is good and you can drink a good wine too, difficult to find in the most of places in Morocco. The price is not cheap but not very expensive neither.

I have eaten at the restaurant on a few occasions and had a pleasant time. Tonight was terrible, i ordered one plate of food Entrecote Steak. And it just didn't arrive. I waited at least 30 minutes with some olives and a can of Fanta. I just had to leave without paying in the end. The waiter chased after me... More

Though I live in Rabat, I've only been to La Veranda once. I intend to return regularly. My first lunch, in October 2013, was great. We were the first to arrive and dined outdoors. My guest and I both had the daily special (veal, I believe), which was delicious and well balanced by vegetables and greens. The desserts were also... More
