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 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.

Went on a Sunday and the attention to the food was lacking. Possibly due to how busy it was. Go on a week night.

Really loved the ambiance and a little magical Hide-away. I can’t wait to return there to try more of the aubergine, and lambs...the spices were divine

Second time there and its very pleasant place to go and eat food and staff is amazing. Just one note for the tables next to the door fix the curtain in the entrance in the cold weather let's a lot of wind come in. Apart from that amazing place

Delicious food and really lovely place to have dinner. One downside: we thought the plates/portions were quite small for their price so don't go feeling really hungry because the food might not be enough.

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!

Delicious food, great service. It was consistently noisy throughout, which made it difficult to have conversations across the table, but that was due to it being extremely busy, which is the sign of a good restaurant

We like morito but was disappointed this time because the wine we ordered was corked. We sent it back and the second carafe came back and was corked again. We were informed that the whole case they had was indeed corked. By this time we were nearing the end of our meal and therefore didn’t request any further wine but some cocktails. Was disappointed that we were not offered the cocktails free as a nice gesture.
Nevertheless the food is good and therefore will continue to recommend it. We will go back, but not in a hurry.

Unfortunately I observed someone from the staff eating several spoonfuls out of a bowl in the kitchen. Another person came and tasted the dish putting the spoon away. Once I saw it I haven’t left my eyes of the bowl to see what will happen. The chef just topped it up with more tabbouleh. When I complained I‘ve been told that the bowl has been swapped for a new one and that it was the usual staff tasting. Especially the chef made me feel like an idiot. But the bowl hasn’t been swapped unless in some magic Super quick blink of my eye. I understand that things should be tasted before being served, but that was not the case. And somehow in my naivety I hope that the spoon will be put away. The manager was polite but we haven’t been offered any refund or deduction from our bill. It spoiled our evening outand I will never go there again.

The food was lovely and drinks were good value. The staff were kind and informative but there should have been some music playing, particularly at the beginning when the restaurant was relatively empty.

I love this place! Food and service is always outstanding, we had really delicious lamb cutlets, labneh, artichoke, squid, beetroot salad, warm breads, fresh and chilled white wine- totally lovely.
It always feels relaxed and unhassled, even when it’s busy, which it was the Friday evening we went.
I’ll definitely be going back.
