Hey I am telling you - don't believe what you see outside - looks like bar to visit one time, but it's NOT! This is nice restaurant, great selection of sea and meat food, Moroccan and international, and they do serve alcohol, and its way cheaper then on the main street av. Mohammed V. Very much recommended!

A bit hidden in a sidestreet behind Hotel Balima this restaurant is a hidden treasure. It has an excellent card where you can chose between French of Moroccan style dishes. All of them of excellent quality. The service is vey good and friendly, and, nice to know, they have a good card of wonderful Moroccan wines. During our short stay... More

I went for lunch and I was the only one in there. The food was ok, but I wouldn't go back. I've had way better food with lower prices in Morocco. No one spoke English when I went, only Arabic and French. Their menu was in French also, nothing in English. Maybe the food is better in the evening, but... More

This was place was a ghost town, sadly, as it was the best meal we had in Morocco. As a caveat, I will admit we almost completely avoided any of the better French or other Western establishments, so the bar may be low. Service was friendly and prompt, and we're not big bread eaters but we were that night as... More

Although the restaurant was very quiet on the Tuesday night we visited, the food and service were of a very high standard. Two of us ate from the fixed price menu, which was excellent value for money.

Despite previous comments we found the restaurant easily. We were the only people in the restaurant for much of the evening but the friendly service and pleasant atmosphere didn't make us feel awkward. The set Moroccan menu was good value and the food excellent. The short wine list was 100% Moroccan and we enjoyed our bottle of local red. Overall... More

Don't be put off by the modest exterior of La Bamba. It is a very good restaurant with a charming old fashioned atmosphere. Their tourist menu is an excellent value, and there is a good selection of wines.

Old fashioned restaurant with style. The tables were nicely set, tablecloths, cloth napkins and candles, with background music from the sixties and seventies. The classy "Maître de" knows his trade and did his job with elegance. We choose the tourist menu which was tasty and plenty (a Moroccan menu and à la carte is also available) The place has a...

We had our dinner at La Bamba Restaurant. It was a big surprise. At the beginning we had some doubts about the quality of the food as there was nobody inside. We changed immediately opinion when we had the first dish. We asked for a Moroccan menu and we were not disappointed. Everything had a nice taste and it was... More

Would probably never have gone to this restaurant except for the reviews on the internet. What a pleasant surprise to eat in a restaurant with background music, linen tablecloths and napkins and such smooth service. Really do not know what more people are not in but then we eat early. We have visited it twice within 2 weeks and each... More
