Moroccan

Moltaqa is translated as a place where people meet and enjoy the whole experience
Healthy and flavourful, halal Moroccan cuisine, aromatic spices. Vegan and gluten free options. We offer BC and international wines, local beers on tap, cocktails. Moroccan Tea, coffee.
Moroccan cuisine is a delicious combination of mouthwatering flavors that make it unique. Moroccan food is incredibly diverse, thanks to the countrys interaction with other cultures and nations over the centuries. Influenced by Berbers, Arabs, Andalusian, Mediterranean and especially French.
We use traditional Moroccan Tagines for cooking, where the convection produced by the design of the pot cooks everything perfectly. The dish is naturally and continuously basted - ingredients are moist and the meat buttery. Couscous and Pastillas are must ty, so are homemade Merguez lamb sausages. Our Vegan sampler plater is

All our meat is halal and hormone- and antibiotic-free. We offer lots of vegan, pescatarian options.

    Drinks were good, food was meh, service was above average. Gastown location a little dodgy. Not busy, can take your time and be social, but not a must-do.

    Very nice restaurant with authentic moroccan food and friendly service. We had the stuffed eggplant with lamb sausage and moroccan salad to start with Chicken Tajine which reminded us of our trip to Morocco. Restaurant was full and food came right away, but it took awhile to get our bill. Overall very good and will return.

    Been to the Gastown location half a dozen times and enjoyed their great food and friendly service. Ambiance was good and had a Moroccan feel for someone who has visited Morocco. I would try the Yaletown location next time for the belly dancing. Highly recommend you give it a try!

    One of the best dinners out we've had. We shared the vegetarian sample platter, that was enough for dinner for us, and everything was delicious. The service was excellent, everything was brought out extremely quickly. Great feel to the place. Only complaint was the music (though fantastic) was a bit too loud, and that's coming from a musician! But we hope to come again and try even more off the menu.

    First time in a Moroccan Resturent. Definitely a very different experience. Loved the decor, atmosphere. Super friendly and knowledgeable stuff. The food was OK. We had lamb merguez, seafood pastilla, harira, cardamon duck tagine, semolina bread, chocolate cake, baklava with ice-cream, saffron martini, moroccan mint tea and Turkish coffee restaurant.!! Wowww a lot .:) I would definitely go again for the atmosphere, might not be for food .!! The background music was bit loud for us but it goes well with the atmosphere.

    Food and Service was very good. We had the Goat and Tagines and the lamb sausage as an appetizer. All were very good. The lamb (with apricot) tagline was the best. We probably could have had another appetizer and shared a tagline. There was a bit of a noisy party next to us that left about half way through our dinner, then the ambience was quite delightful. We are from out of town and have been to the Hastings location a couple of times. We will go back.
