We had lunch here but ordered from the breakfast menu (since it is available until 3pm). We had the Merguez Sausage tajine and the 4 cheese tajine which were both great especially the house made bread supplied to mop up the left over sauce.

Amazing food; amazing taste; the menu is so different; central location near Manly wharf; if you go out a lot, you might enjoy the change as we did;

Coming from Melbourne and being in business with Morocco we just had to try "Out of Africa" while on a business trip to Sydney just after Christmas. Well in advance we booked for two on a Saturday night. Hassan M'Souli has a fine reputation and we had high expectations. Sorry to say our experience was not anywhere near our expectations.... Perhaps they were too high ? We expected Hassan's restaurant to be at least on a par with B'Stilla in Melbourne. Regret to say not even close. The restaurant was only half full and on a Saturday night that alone speaks volumes. The service was not unfriendly but perfunctory only. The décor while interesting need more thought. The food was OK but not great...certainly a wide choice from various parts of Africa. In hindsight I think the problem is the choice of location... The Esplanade at Manly is a popular tourist destination and one would think that would be good for business... Yes but really only for more "touristy" venues. I think that Hassan M'Souli's undoubted talents would be better served in a LESS popular location where his style could shine instead of being in an expensive prime location where many customers come in just because they wandered past and it was time to eat.
