We spent the afternoon walking in the rainforest of the nearby Botanical Gardens. We were famished. We delayed selecting a restaurant, waiting for a friend. The Dublin was filled to capacity.We walked back to this restaurant next door as there were vacant tables. The Villa Maria Sauvignon Bland was excellent. We decided to share seafood, chicken and lamb dishes. The... More

best Turkish delight martini in Aus! Had a lamb tagine which was tasty, good view. Surprising how quiet this place is, would have thought it would be busier on a Saturday night.

After a trip to the reef we had a quick lunch, very tasty food! I can't fault our meals, mixed entrees, dips, breads and salads. Service was prompt and the views from the front tables to the marina add to a nice atmosphere. I have just read a review that people were unhappy about not being able to get a... More

we were served with food which was incipid to the core and unauthentic. They have employed people who have no sense of what they are making. No salt, no pepper, no chills, no spices, nothing ! an absolute waste of time and money. I don't usually leave bad reviews on Urbanspoon, however the chefs who prepared such tasteless meals deserve... More

Love this place! Shame about no pizza oven but friendly waitresses explained it was out of order and problems getting permission to get it fixed. Obviously not their fault and she was apologetic, and the other things on the menu were much more interesting and anyway- who goes to a morrocan/Turkish place for pizza!? I chose this place as the...

We were really quite excited about having a meal here, having eaten at Mecca Bah in Melbourne often. Unfortunately the restaurant was nearly empty for a Thursday night, most of the restaurants nearby were full to overflowing which should have alerted us. However to their credit, the staff explained that the pizza oven was broken down, so no pizzas were... More

Mecca Bah Sunday 10/08/2014 This restaurant was recommended by friends who live in Cairns. When I was told that this is where we're going to eat, I jumped online to check TripAdvisor reviews. Well I wasn't impressed with what I read so went thinking negatively (well it was the night before a full super moon and it was raining too).... More

This was shocking. Unfortunately there were no redeeming qualities of our visit. Service was excruciatingly slow and dismissive when they got our order wrong. Food was incredibly bland and tagine meat was tough. We wanted one of the Turkish pizzas but they were unavailable as apparently the oven wasn't working. This place is awful. You would only go here if... More
