The location is a 100%. A guarded compund with a nice river view. Food is 96%: very nice dishes but a selection is a tad boring. The drinks are good. The problem is service. I have dined here once a week for three months. Left them
Lots of money. Does that give you any advantage? Oh no: it Seems like they rather think you are someone guaranteed to come no matter what, so they can start ignoring you a bit...

An excellent time out with old friends at Badala restaurant. This was a special event as we met after a long gap and we chose Badala. Nice food and drinks served at the outdoor terrace overlooking the main river of Bamako. Definitely we would like to visit again.

Had a very relaxing visit here. The food was excellent. Enjoyed the view of the Niger River as we ate. Friendly and fast service.

First and foremost, his is one of the safer places in Bamako.
With armed security inside the perimeter and a guarded (almost fortress like) entrance.
The inside and outside tables leave you the choice wether to enjoy a cooling a/c or the nice breeze from Niger River.
The food is absolute delicious. Place is clean and tidy. Prices are a bit higher but you get a well worth complete package.

Where do they get meat so tender? It was a beautiful meal as always. I cannot understamd other comments where they say pricey. All restaurants in Bamako are roughly the same price per person. Always bet on paying 10,000 CFA for a meal with drinks per person.
