We are an owned operated modern bistro set in on the leafy corner of Upland & Benson Road Remuera.
Daniel & Sarah Morini (owners) meet in 2009 at SPQR, Sarah front of house manager, Daniel head chef.
They fell in love
over their love for well executed simple food, quality ingredients and warm NZ hospitality. Morell is the”restaurant” dream
for this seasoned hospitality couple. Both have worked for exceptional local & worldwide chefs and restauranteurs
including Neil Perry, Peter Gordon, Frank Chek, Mark Wallbank, Simon Gault & Chris Rupe.
At Morell we understand that kai is much more than food. It’s about whanau (family and friends) and oranga (health &
wellbeing) ….How we source our ingredients matters because we are proud kaitiaki, guardians of our land. Our menu
created by owner/chef Daniel from Maori/Italian decent shows you where we come from and where we are going.
Always inspired by our roots of our “familia” and maanakitanga, the Maori tradition of hospitality. everything we do is
presented to you with aroha care & pride.
