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

My new favourite restaurant! Heaps of vegetarian options and a beautiful atmosphere! Helpful, friendly staff and chefs willing to do special requests! We will definitely be dining here again - a lot!

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

I’ve been going to the Meccah bar many times over the years and gradually it’s been a sad decline from the glory it was once. I dinned at Mecca Bah in Cairns last Saturday and whilst the restaurants around it were bustling and filled with a good vibe I stayed loyal to the Mecca Bah. Entering the restaurant is a... More

Nice Moroccan restaurant right next to the harbor. We had a group dinner, which can be iffy. I had fish and sweet potato 'chips.' Very nice. They also served us a tasty little brownie. Service was fast and I liked the atmosphere.

Walked past Mecca Bah several times over a few days with my wife and thought the place had potential. After a long day in the Atherton tablelands three of us ordered their one steak dish which sounded nice and sides of spiced chips. Wine waitress managed to spill red wine around each glass and did not offer to taste first.... More

Me and my boyfriend had lunch here and we found this experience amazing. The food was authentic and delicious, the staff was friendly, fast and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxed but everything was perfect and the staff showed theire attention to details. I will certainly go back, for a romantic dinner or with friends. It's surprising the restaurant is not... More
