Welcome to Moorish café, widely considered one of Darwin’s Best Restaurants.

Established in 2002, Moorish quickly became known as a food lover’s haven, specialising in fresh, local, Territorian seafood and produce inspired by the flavours of Spain, the Mediterranean and Northern Africa.  Cocktails that celebrate the tropical climate and Darwin’s best coffee, along with outstanding value for money make Moorish café an exceptional dining experience not to be missed.

Moorish café is Darwin’s original and only Tapas restaurant.  But why stop at tapas when you can also choose from our Breakfast, Lunch, Main Course, Dessert, Wine and Beer menus. 

In the following pages you will discover a tantalising array of meat, vegetarian and seafood dishes which show case our passion for quality local produce, lovingly prepared in house with a strong emphasis on quality and flavour.  Our menus are extremely versatile and can easily be adapted to cater for all manner of allergies, likes and dislikes.  Gluten and dairy free options are a specialty.

At Moorish, there is always plenty to catch the eye, please the palate and stimulate the senses.  

Moorish is a true celebration of great food in the heart of the Darwin CBD.


Closed from Sunday 20th December.  Open again on Tuesday 5th January 2016.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and ALL.
