Makla, a local, independent, family-run restaurant, was born from our profound love for food.
We initially embarked on our culinary journey through street food, trading as Aladdin’s street food in major events and festivals across the south. From Camp Bestival to Isle of Wight and Shake & Stir to Bournemouth Food and Drink Festival, our journey led us here to Southbourne, where the local community welcomed us with open arms.
Makla, which means 'food' in Darija, which is Moroccan Arabic.
Makla is a restaurant that offers a unique marriage of traditional and modern cuisine. Our culinary passion blossomed in the heart of Morocco, with its strong Mediterranean influence, we honed the art of crafting dishes that are both delicious and healthful.
