Dear all,

Moro is now open again !!! For the time being we will be closed for lunch Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and for dinner on Sunday.

Moro restaurant in London’s Exmouth Market may retain its reputation as one of the hippest restaurants in one of the hippest parts of the capital, but this Clerkenwell restaurant still focuses more on good food than its own image. Moro’s décor with its polished wooden floors, long zinc bar, open view to the kitchen and its charcoal grill and wood-burning oven, is functional and welcoming. Cuisine of the southern Mediterranean, from the Iberian Peninsula into Northern Africa, is the menu’s exclusive province.

Food was delicious, lovely airy relaxing vibe, with good atmosphere.

Staff very attentive.

Only thing was that some dishes were quite small for the amount we paid for them.

We toke the hake and received a small portion from the tail of the fish. This was rather little for the price we paid.

On the menu you have to mention the extra cost of 12,5 % service. This was a suprise for us. As we are from Belgium we are not used to the fact that the price on the menu does not include service.
Thank you for reviewing this.

Good food but now they have moved to a tapas menu it not as good as it was. It was one of our most favourite places to eat in London. The sherry ice cream is great, lamb dish good as is the anchovy, egg and harissa “brick”

We went on Monday this week, just as London was emptying out. There were perhaps 6-10 tables occupied. They seated us all well apart, the food was its usual wonderful standard and the staff were relaxed and cheerful despite the likelihood that the restaurant would have to close within days. If you live close enough and if Moro offers a take away menu, please support them. We will need Moro more than ever when this is all over. Stay safe, be responsible and support Moro.

Hadn’t been here for a while and don’t know if it was just an off-night or it has gone downhill. Ordered 4 starters between 2 and all of them were pretty awful, two almost took the roof off your mouth there was so much vinegar. To be fair they discounted the bill by 1 starter.

A Saturday lunchtime treat for us - the staff were lovely - really friendly and helpful, the atmosphere relaxed and as ever the food was absolutely gorgeous. Simple dishes cooked to perfection with beautiful flavour combinations and great house wine. My succulent wood roasted lamb was paired with a delicious piquant olive and anchovy garum and sublimely olive oiled patatas a lo pobre. They'd run out of Seville orange ice cream so we tried the cardamon and rose instead - delicately flavoured heaven! Not a cheap meal but compared to the National Theatre restaurant the night before at the same price in another league of cooking alltogether. Always worth it for Moro. Thankyou Sam and Sam and your wonderful staff.
