In our 2-week holiday in New Zealand, this was one of my favorite dining experiences. Loved, loved, loved the food here.
Immediately after disembarking from the Bluebridge Ferry in downtown Wellington, drove approximately 10 minutes along the waterfront to the Marrakech Cafe Moroccan and Mediterranean restaurant.
Their address is 305 Evans Bay Parade, but when I entered the address in my Garmin GPS, the closest address that came up was 374 Evans Bay Parade, so I entered that in and it got us close enough. Saw it on the Waterfront side of the street. Lots of free street parking nearby, and didn't have a hard time finding a space - even on a Friday night.
No one in my family had experienced Moroccan cuisine before. I had the Lamb Tagine, a delicious dish with a bone-in cut of lamb on a bed of couscous with a hearty plum sauce with other vegetables.
My son had the Beef Agadir, which included a mixture of sweet potatoes, almond slices, mushrooms, and. .
Although, this Lamb Tagine was my favorite entree, my favorite dish was the dessert. We all split a bachlava, which was served with a very creamy vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Best bachlava I have ever eaten. We should have each gotten one of these tasty pastry-like creations which was in a sort of donut-style shape.
If I lived near Wellington, this restaurant would be a regular event in my life.
