The fascinating menu, features fresh local ingredients, hosts over 30 different tapas with edgy additions like the Grilled sumac spiced NT barramundi with bloodless bloody Mary and the King Salmon and Sichuan pepper pâté with fennel confit. To compliment a drop from the acclaimed cellar of older vintages try the Baharat spiced kangaroo fillet with pickled beetroot, smoked chat potatoes and goat cheese sauce, grilled

It’s really nice. But be aware it’s expensive. It’s tapas so that’s to be expected. Very tiny portions. Don’t visit if you’re a prop forward

Really enjoyed our meal last night. The place was pretty full, but service was still good. Highlight was the laksa panne cotta, however, the tapas was also very good. Will definitely be back soon.

The Moorish Cafe's roasted garlic and thyme portobello mushrooms with cauliflower purée is one of the best dishes I have had in ages, simply delicious. We tried some other dishes that evening, but that one was the standout. The service was okay and atmosphere was...More

First off, a resto is mainly about the food, so no matter what, Moorish serves up really good food, and people should go there and eat. However, we were there on a pretty quiet night, and maybe that was part of what seemed a bit...More

We had a wonderful time dining at Moorish on a busy Saturday night. The place was full but we still felt like our table mattered, well done! Those effort areas like topping people’s wine (and water) glasses up really make a difference. Although we probably...More
