Moro and Morito chef proprietors, Sam & Sam Clark, have opened their third restaurant, located at 195 Hackney Road.

In keeping with Moro and Morito on Exmouth Market, Hackney Road will draw influences from Southern Spain, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean including the island of Crete where Head Chef Marianna Leivaditaki grew up and worked in her family’s fish restaurant. Samantha and Marianna have worked hard sourcing exceptional produce, some of which is not yet available in London.

We have concise offering of wines from the Mediterranean - primarily mainland Spain and Portugal - with a couple of lesser known wines from the Canary Islands. There is a selection of sparkling, white, red, pink, and orange wines, with many available by the glass. For those looking to venture past these, there is also a list of Sherry and Vermouth.

The dishes are very good, very tasty and so well executed. The service is very smily and welcoming. Well done ! I love this place. The bill is maybe a bit over what you should pay, but it worths it anyway :)

good presentation, good balance on dishes and very well done. as an an overall, good but i m missing sparks. would recommend the duck as best dish.
could improve on table service with water(waiting for ten minutes to try to catch the eyes to get some), its a shame otherwise i would give a 5*
not sure if it was the food or us. Looks like we had a good experience at restaurant, but we all had a funny stomach, nothing majors but enough not to recommend

Great value of money!
Great place! Great food! Great service! Proper sized rations and most important : really really nice taste.
We ordered: bread, olives, fried aubergine, crispy duck and beef and a bottle of wine.
Crispy duck could be better: lack of strength-power, nice duck but no well mixed with apricots (my opinion) and curly endive.
The other dishes and tapas simply AMAZING!!!
I would recommend it and i will go again please don’t miss the cauliflower on Veggies Monday’ also amazing
PS: can someone explain me why wine is so expensive in this City?????

Morito has great food and I really love the restaurant for so many reasons but mostly because the food is always stellar and interesting. But- the last two times their seating policy has made my table really feel like we are just coins in their machine. Come, eat, pay and leave as quickly as possible so they can get next Group in to do the same. It’s a shame. If they could relax their seating policy just a bit it would really make all the difference!

I love the idea of a vegan menu every monday. I think they've come up with a great idea. I marked down the food a bit as one of the dishes was so salty we had to return it, and as it was the last to come to the table, we didn't replace it.
But everything else was fantastic!

Absolutely, one of the nicest restaurants in London when it comes to the people working in the hospitality business. The food and drink are wonderful. I took two Italian friends there for Sunday brunch on Easter weekend and we all had an amazing time. For me, as a returnee, I knew my companions would have a great time, but these guys are very, very fussy and they loved it!. A go to dining destination!

Gorgeous lunch with a close friend. The waiting staff were amazing one even giving me sun cream as we sat outside. The food was great, my only qualm was the aubergine with molasses was a bit sickly. Everything else was perfect 👌🏻

the food is fantastic! it made up for the service - which could have been more accomodating considering that we were a large group. (kept forgetting our plates, not checking in, we had to constantly search for the waiter for wine refills, etc). but would give this place another chance and certainly come back again - the food is just unbelievable.

Absolutely loved our meal, everything my friend and I ordered was delicious and we had a really nice table where we could see the kitchen and we had space to chat to each other. It isn't cheap but the food is so good that I felt like it was good value. Staff were helpful, only thing I would say if booking for Sunday to make sure you book for earlier (I'd booked for 8) as I hadn't realised they close early so it felt a bit rushed at the end. Definitely hope to return soon!
