We had dinner here on our last night in Airlie Beach and were quite impressed. We had not eaten Moroccan style food before but the staff were only too happy to help with menu selections. A comprensive selection of wines are available too (the owner also runs the wine & cheese bar next door - any wine on their list... More

The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food was as good as we expected. There was no rush to get patrons out so it was great to settle back after the meal.

When I come to Airlie, I make sure I have at least one meal here. Always leave feeling so full, but also feeling good because it's fresh and nutritious. The $18/person "feed me whatever the chef thinks" is so delicious. Moroccan flavours, full of spice and taste. Moroccan Coffee with Rosewater Cream is also a must! Winner everytime.

Food was average as was the service. Most expensive meal in airlie beach so far and the worse. Wine over priced. Would give it a miss

My husband and I went here for a date night while we were in Airlie Beach. The food was absolutely amazing and we were seated outside which had such a wonderful romantic feel overlooking Port Airlie.

Cha'mahs is easily my favourite restaurant to go to in Airlie Beach! The food, the drinks, the decor and of course the staff, who make you feel right at home, all come together to form an amazing dining experience in a relaxed and appealing environment. Plus they have an old black and white movie night. Sold.

Food was terrible, service was poor... We were expecting a somewhat Morroccan dining experience. It was as about as Morroccan as a backyard bbq..

Thank you for your underhanded complement, as you should know, everyone loves a backyard BBQ. If you had courage in your conviction, you should have come to us directly with your dissatisfaction instead of posting it anonymously, A little over zealous in your remarks I feel. . More

My husband and I had a very tasty meal here. What I chose the meat just melted in my mouth. The waitresses were very very friendly and helpful with choosing what to order. I would go back again. Thank you.

Lovely ambience, decor & music is terrific along with great food & friendly efficient service. We'll done to management & staff. As a seasoned restaurant goer I find it hard to believe there are actually negative reviews about this place. I guess you can't please everyone.
