OMG ... our first experience at dining in and WOW blown away with how fresh the food was and you could certainly tell it's home made, it was totally delicious. The portions are great, you certainly won't leave feeling like you need to eat more. Very generous and great value for money. The staff are fantastic, friendly, polite and they... More

Delicious lunch, we shared a pizza and main course fritta mista! Excellent bottle of house white, chilled and served perfectly. Now, for the ice cream... made on site, incredibly fresh and created with experience and pride! Salty caramel and rum and raisin and pistachio were all the best I've ever tasted. Thank you Marroccos, we will definitely be back.

My partner and daughter decided to visit last minute on Thursday evening as a treat. As usual staff were welcoming and friendly and very attentive. The food was incredible and plentiful - we shared calamaris and bruschetta as a starter which was delicious. My daughter opted from a ham pizza from the kids menu - although she's 13, kids can...

Our daughter had the choice of venue for dinner and decided she wanted to go to Marrocco's for pizza. Despite reeling off a list of other places we could go this was the restaurant of choice so thats where we headed. Once again we went for a sharing starter which was the Calamari and Bruschetta this was shared between myself,... More

A great place to eat delicious Italian food. The place s perfectly located for the beach but because of the location & the food it can get very busy. The ice cream stall often has a queue that meanders around the corner of the next road. The food and ice cream are perfection. A family run business that has a... More

Still need to find out what is so special about this place.... I would say the food was pretty average and the deco was stuck in the 40's ...thank God they just refresh the place lately.

Hi there Sabau and thank you for your feedback , I'm sorry to hear that the decor is not to your liking and taste . Marrocco's hasn't really changed that much since 1969 and before that is was Fortes who opened up in 1935 . We've resisted over the years to change the look too dramatically as we feel it... More

I came across Marrocco's on a freezing cold day, walking down the beach with my 3 years old son. Marrocco's delighted us with an excellent service and welcoming atmosphere. We warmed up sitting near pizza ovens whilst having a delicious pizza. This was a great experience!

Description
We'll never be a large restaurant, It's simply too small, our kitchen has always been in the heart of the dining area making our complete operation totally transparent. If you haven't visited us, you'll find that what we offer is real italian food, the food you would expect when you're on holiday in the old country and there's always something for everyone, regardless of their tastes.We still work within traditional methods and believe strongly in having the kitchen as the heart of our restaurant. Marroccos' offers a traditional family atmosphere with food that we are proud to plan, create and serve. But we have high standards. We believe in value for money without sacrificing quality or freshness and operate a strict quality control system including ordering our food daily to ensure freshness and minimise waste. Of course we don't get it right 100% of the time, but we have policies and procedures in place to deal with any matter that you're not happy with. All we ask is that you tell us so we can correct any matter that you're not happy with if it arises. I'm very proud of all my team that have helped create and mould Marroccos' into what it is today and we look forward to the years to come. Pietro Marrocco and the team at Marroccos
