We love this place, we've been here maybe 7 times and every time it is absolutely fabulous. Our favorites are the Agadir beef and the Salma tagine which are both succulent and flavourful. They have great service as well. Considering the many Wellington restaurants, we...More

The vegetarian couscous at 19,90$ was merely chickpeas with some couscous with half a sad looking carrot and two slices of a very dried courgette served in a tagine plate. How sad! :-(

Came here with my (Moroccan) husband. Ordered lamb tagine- while it was nice, it came with rice, which is not at all common for tagine. Also it was full of peas (never seen peas in tagine before) and the potato was cut up so small...More

We dined at this cafe in May soon after returning from Marrakesh. The food was very tasty and well presented reminding us of the meals and tastes we had enjoyed in Morocco. I would recommend this cafe, especially if you enjoy Moroccan cuisine.

I've been eating at the Marrakech Cafe since I first moved to Wellington in 2013. Off the usual tourist trails and tucked amongst some townhouses, it is a true hidden gem. The service has always been with a smile. Food once took rather long to...More

Driving to Wellington airport from Wairarapa, most eating places were closed, but a short diversion we found Marrakech Cafe. We were a bit early for the lunch menu but were able to get some really tasty bread and dips. The Humus was good and the...More

For people who like to walk along the bay, the cafe is located on the way to recharge and to rest. For people who drive, it is not too far away from Hataitai or Kilbirnie. Space is not too big and full of fresh air...More
