This great Moroccan eatery, provides warm authentic food, with great service. Located in the heart of Mooloolaba, this restaurant has a wonderful chef, and overlooks the ocean.

Semo's is one of our favourite places to visit when we come to Mooloolaba. Staff are awesome and treat you like old friends. Nothing is too much trouble and they are happy to accommodate food intolerances/allergies. Food is yum and plentiful. The share platters for entree are great and I definitely recommend one of the tagines. It's a bit pricey... More

My friend and I were looking for decent found on the Sunny Coast. We got the fish, and the lamb. They were both amazing.

I really enjoyed our food I ate early and the food came well presented, great flavours and speed of the food being delivered was perfect. Down side; Under staffed, one waiter that you could tell was just employed because the chef in the back kitchen kept telling him to take food after he had rang the bell 2-3 times. The... More

Huge serves (but I ate it all). Delicious hearty meals. A little expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

They had a mix up with our meal, once it arrived it was nice but a long wait. Aside from this hiccup, the service was excellent and they gave us complimentary glass of wine which was a very nice touch, thankyou.

We enjoyed the mixed tapas platter, enough for 2, and the fabulous desserts. Friendly service and a buzzing ambience on a Saturday night.

I have eaten at this restaurant a few times over the last 5 years. The first time I had sweet lamb tagine and it was excellent. The next time there weren't as many spices and not as good. I was there 2 weeks ago with a friend and we shared a mezze plate for 2 with a glass of house... More

Seating area was pleasant. Service was excellent. Price was around $29 for a main meal.The real disappointment was the food. My daughter had a vegetable curry which was nice but my tangine was pretty awful and I couldnt finish it. I have had many tangines and I love them (plus I cook them myself) but this one tasted like the... More

The atmosphere is unpleasant as we could hear the owners shouting at the staff from where we were sitting. The lady behind the bar was very rude as she ignored us and she acted like it was a chore to get us some scooners. This was by far the worst experience I have ever had. The food was okay, but...
