Mamounia Lounge, Mayfair, London Restaurant

Mayfair outside

 

Looking for something different for a night out? Yes, me too! Mamounia Lounge restaurant in London, fitted the bill with an exotic touch of the orient slap bang in the middle of Mayfair.

We knew we were in for an oriental treat straight away with lots of people sitting at the outside tables enjoying hubba bubba pipes. Step inside to a super stylish interior – dark and mysterious but super chic at the same time.

Downstairs for dinner after receiving a warm and friendly welcome by the staff who are both helpful and attentive.  These tables were soon full and the place was buzzing.

I chose a Strawberry Mojito to sip whilst choosing for the interesting menu. Delicious!

The food is definitely the best thing about Mamounia, which is what everyone wants in a restaurant – good food at a sensible price.  I love Lebanese and Moroccan cuisine and so I was in for a treat. Our Mezze selection was vegetarian Moussaka and  Homous  served with pitta bread.

Followed by Meshoui for my guest which is shoulder of lamb slowly roasted with Moroccan Spices, served with fresh dates Orange and Apricots which I am told was delicious.  I ate lobster and Crab Tagine with asparagus, samphire, clams lobster bisque lemon confit and black olives – it was a triumph.

The food was as good as any I have eaten travelling to the Middle East, and you all know that I can be a Diva!

We were entertained by a terrific singer, musician and bellydancers, they were very tasteful and danced around the tables – wish I could do that wibbly wobbly thing with my belly. By this time I was transported to the Kasbah – I think the delicious Strawberry Mojito helped!

Scrummy Baclava to finish – I’m not sure how I managed to squeeze it in, definitely getting on the treadmill!

The place was still full and lively when we left. Thank you to Mamounia Lounge for a lovely evening –  we will be back.

    Mamounia Lounge looks like a place I would definitely want to try. I love how comfortable the red, plush chairs and booth/benches looked! Everything seemed so warm and inviting that it seems like it would set the perfect tone for a night out. And the food seems perfect! I’m just starting to try different dishes from the area, but the sound of the lamb, moussaka, hummus made me want to go out for a very early lunch. 🙂

      Thanks Patricia! I’m feeling hungry again just thinking about it.

    It all looks very extravagant ☺ I would definitely try the vegetarian moussaka. I’ve never tried strawberry mojitos although I’m more partial to strawberry daquris. Yum!

    Your photo of the dancer is exquisite! Mamounia Lounge sounds like somewhere I would love to enjoy the ambiance and food. They have really good review too.

    I really shouldn’t have read this article before lunch – all that food looks incredible!! I’m living in Guatemala and they have a severe lack of hummus that gives me such strong cravings. I might be in London in a few months so I will definitely keep this in mind, thanks for the great tips!

    Mmm the food looks amazing. I love a good tagine. Although I am vegetarian, but most Moroccan food can easily be made vegetarian. The entertainment there sounds great!

    I love that photo of the dancer with that fabulous scarf, and the food sounds fabulous! I can’t believe how many good restaurants there are in London now. It’s really changed since my parents lived there (before I was born).

      Thank you! I don’t think your parents would recognise London now – we have over 270 nationalities living in the city which makes for lots of different types of restaurant to choose. 🙂

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be what
    precisely I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to
    write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write
    regarding here. Again, awesome website!
