We tried Mecca bar as Dundee was not taking reservations. I'm glad we did. The food was amazing. Lots of love put into it. The team are young confident and welcoming. We overheard that it was closing soon. We hope they relocate and start again somewhere as it's a unique dining option in cairns... read more

We went as a group of 12 for a birthday celebration and I have never been so disappointed, we were placed at the very back and forgotten about. I had to go to the counter three times to ask for a waitress to attend our table. My meal was disgusting. After waiting one and a half hours to get it... More

We ordered and were impressed with the entrees however after being eaten alive by midgies we left without any other courses. The restaurant had NO spray no candles or any way of combatting the evil biters either. Bitterly disappointed. Used to be my fav place in bris!

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
