Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Six of us enjoyed a fabulous evening at Morell recently on a Saturday night. Great cocktails to start with followed by outstanding meals, all beautifully presented and full of flavour, plus plenty of good wine. Excellent friendly service ensured we were very well looked after...and our glasses were never empty. Morell has a lovely bar, a divine menu, the option of dinning outside and such good service, we look forward to returning for another fun evening.More

Great neighbourhood Italian restaurant. Friendly efficient staff, interesting menu and the cocktails were great too, especially the Grapefruit Margarita! I really enjoyed the Seafood Tagliatelle and the pannacotta dessert, which came with a candle and a song from the staff for my birthday friend!

A group of 5 of us had dinner there last Saturday night. An absolutely fantastic meal- cannot fault it in any way. I had the fish, this was an extremely generous serving on a risotto bed and I would have to say that would be...the best fish I have had in a restaurants. Vey highly recommended! The other guests all thought the same.More

Great start with sparkling water from the house jugs! And things just got better. I had the tuna sashimi and She had tiger prawns to start. We swapped plates to see who had the best, and decided it was even Mains, I had the slow-braised...beef cheek and She had the seafood raju. We both loved our meals. I had a glass of big aussie red and She had this coconut cocktail Finished off a double 15yo scotch and She had a double baileys I would give this a very high 4/5 Lovely setting, attentive staff at reasonable pricesMore

I try to mix things up being a bit of a foodie but have to say this place just keeps giving. We popped in on Saturday for a quick one on the way home and some 5 hours later I was still trying to leave....Consistently good with a fantastic team. You'd think after a few months of lock down the team would be rusty as they thrash out the cobwebs but their usual slick self. Never fails or disappoints ever. Always a pleasure and enjoyable. Thanks so much :)More

Delicious lunch today for four - we sat outside and the staff were very attentive with the umbrella and making sure we were comfortable. Excellent antipasto platter and a superb calamari salad for me. Excellent staff and excellent food - highly recommend

Came by for a birthday dinner and so we went with cocktails and a multi-course meal. They had quite a selection of food and drinks and it all sounds quite nice. I got the paper tiger and it was more bitter than I thought it...would be. My friend had the tickled pink and that was surprisingly nice. We started with the baos and bread. The fried bread was quite nice. The pork belly in the bao was slightly underseasoned but the chicharron gave it a nice flavour. I was pleasantly surprised with the cioppino. The seafoody stew had a really nice flavour and the right amount of smokiness to work with the seafood. It was a bit of a pain to get all the crab meat out but it was cooked well and quite sweet. The pasta on the pappardelle was a bit on the soft side for me but the flavour of the ragu was nice. The ravioli was really tasty though. the buttery sauce and the creamy filling was very moreish. Most of the desserts were nice. I wasn't a fan of the gingernut in the banoffee pie but the other components were good. The profiteroles were great with the show of chocolate being poured over the. The toffee in the sticky date pudding was nice and silky and the pudding itself was moist enough to not need it but tasted so much nicer with it. A really nice place for a lovely dinner. Great food and service all around.More

Absolutely sensational - I have to say that our local gem never misses a beat. I drove past the other night and saw it was packed so thought best I drop in and support the local eateries. Firstly thanks for squeezing us in then following...it up with great service and exquisite food. Always consistently great with a nice lively atmosphere. 🙏More

Our last minute decision to dine at Morell was a wonderful choice. Love the simplicity of the chic decor and atmosphere lends to an enjoyable evening. It wasn't easy to chose what to order, the entire menu is filled with so many great options. The...food was beyond delicious! The steak frites, mushroom risotto and crayfish ravioli were our favorites. The staff couldn't not have been more pleasant or have done a better job!More

Second visit there. Service, atmosphere and layout good. Initially for dinner, where both dishes were great. This time lunch: The squid was especially disappointing. Not much of it and not tasty. Got the impression restaurant frequented mainly by local gentry. Annoying to be charged for...in house aerated water, (in other similar local establishments it's typically a complimentary option). Also annoyed at attempt to charge for unprovided item, then to electronically ask for a tip.More

Cant fault this crew. Have been over a dozen times with large groups and as a couple and they nail the service every time. Great food and great atmosphere in a leafy street. Also guaranteed a park within 2min walk any time of the day.
