    The 4 of us had the very ample appetizer sampler platter which was tasty and then the lemon tagine and duck tagine - both excellent, flavourful and beautifully presented, each with some cous cous on the side. Wine list was good and reasonably priced. The only negative was the women's washroom which was a disgrace and shocking opposite to the beautiful restaurant.

    This restaurant was recommended by someone I met from Morocco so I went for the first time with a friend to try it out. The staff were quick to welcome us and show us to our table. All the staff were attentive and friendly. We both ordered wine, which was good, and we felt was also very reasonably priced as compared to other restaurants in Vancouver ($10-$11 per glass). For food we ordered the vegetarian sample platter, which was enough for us. The food was delicious, flavorful, tasty, and well-presented. The ambience is welcoming with good energy and music. Loved the rugs and cushions which make it feel warm & cozy. I will definitely go back and bring more friends.

    Overall this place was not worth the price. My cocktail was not refreshing as promised, it was overly sweet when I specifically asked for "not sweet". Our main server was wonderful but another staff that cleared the plates was incredibly rude. When I asked a staff member to wipe some spilled soup, she actually rolled her eyes at me. That same staff member also scoffed at us when we asked for more time with our starter. Then the main dish arrived, the lamb tagine. It was awful. Over salted and no infused flavour of spices and fruit like you would expect in a tagine. So disappointing. 2/5, DO NOT waste your time coming to this place.

    Ambiance is fantastic. Food was excellent as well, except one baklava was little bit too old and dry. I found staff not very knowledgable about food and spices and all the time on your case - they were so eager to take away the dishes despite obviosuly food not finished. BUT they have belly dancing - LIVE every Friday and Saturday and over all fantastic place.

    We had the LEMON & OLIVE HALAL HALF CHICKEN TAGINE WITH SAFFRON and CARDAMOM DUCK WITH FIGS, PEAR AND SESAME TAGINE. We also had FRESH CHERMOULA CUCUMBER SALAD*VEGAN* and FRESH PEPPER & TOMATOES CHERMOULA SALAD WITH CAPPERS*VEGAN* plus of course bread and couscous. We enjoyed our meal though we had to take leftovers to go as the portions were quite generous. The service was excellent!

    The food and drinks were delicious and the belly dancer was a lovely, fun surprise! Seemed there may have been a staffing issue though as it felt the staff were overwhelmed and didn’t have enough time for us. We weren’t even greeted upon arrival and it was slow to get us seated for the reservation. As customers departed there was a more relaxed and friendly vibe though. So maybe that was just a once off being a busier night than expected or staff shortage for the evening ?

    We ordered scallops and mushrooms, we got a very small amount of fish , no mushrooms. No one told us they do not have scallop dish, a new dish was brought no explanation until we tasted it and looked inside !

    Moltaqa Moroccan Restaurant - YaletownResponded on May 23, 2022Thank you for your feedback, printed menu has not been updated. Item has scallop calamari fish inside it is traditional Moroccan dish and it was not charge to you - taken of the bill due to that. We apologized and you mention that food is great sorry for misunderstanding.

    Both tagines, chicken and lamb shank, were both flavourful and different. The rack of lamb was not medium rare but medium well, too cooked for our personal taste but still tender and nicely marinated and the salad/vegetables on the side were very nicely seasoned. The owner was very pleasant and helpful, as were the servers. However, the service and wait was quite long though it was quite busy. Overall, we would come back to try some of their other tagines.

    Service was very slow, waited almost 30 minutes before being asked to order and had to wave staff over to order a drink. Ordered the vegetarian sampling plate as vegan, and it came with cheese. There was also an issue with the soup, where my friends soup had a twist tie from the cilantro in the soup and my friend ended up biting down on metal. Manager tried to make it better and offered some sausages (despite us ordering vegan and vegetarian food) and didn’t take anything off of the bill. Overall with the service and the incident, we wouldn’t go back.

    Moltaqa Moroccan Restaurant - YaletownResponded on May 8, 2022Thank you for your feedback. Apologize for service not to apr liking. Saturday night 7pm we got little behind, but we provide prompt and professional service. regarding lamb merguez -Gentleman who dinned with you is Algerian and Lebanese and we had conversation that mLamb Merguez is made by Algerian butcher and that we use olive oil he is not vegetarian and it was not related to anything prior to that. Seafood pastilla was ordered as well.
