Dear all,

Moro is delighted to announce we will re-open doors soon in a freshly refurbished restaurant with a new menu for you to enjoy. We are now taking bookings from the 20th of July onward.
We will operate on different opening days as normal, with social distancing rules in place following government guidelines, and extra care for our customers.
We are looking forward to feed you soon.

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.

With covid19 we were one of only 5 tables. Excellent food, service and ambience. A very jolly evening

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.

Creative and fine food. Especially enjoyed cuttlefish, lamb, and jamon Iberico( it was carved perfectly) . Olives too were perfect. The wine ( Nestal Mencia- Bierzo) chosen by the waiter was Excellent as were the cocktails -their take on a mule and the Negroni.

We absolutely loved our dinner at Moro. The service was top notch. We opted for small plates and it did not disappoint! Creative and fresh. Don't miss the potatoes with aioli- absolutely sinful!

I always make a point of having and enjoying a meal in Moro on my visits to London and on this occasion I think that the lamb surpassed my previous meals. Excellent.

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.

Having been a huge fan of Moro ever since it opened I have to say that this was the most disappointing meal I’ve had there. Seemed to be going through the motions, doing Moro-y things without the usual zest. Rocket with almost everything, which suggests a lack of imagination in the ingredients.

In the past yes, I feel it’s not as good as it used the be. The food was not as flavoursome and the plates were smaller and not as generous. Also moro always had amazing bread, which it still does however my mum is gluten free and we were told they had gluten free bread, which they did but it was shop bought sliced bread which they had toasted... I feel they could endeavour to make their own or source better. The choices for my mum were very limited on the starter list and slightly better on the main courses, maybe they could do dishes which could be altered easily? We still had a wonderful time, but I feel it’s not as special as it used to be. I prob won’t visit again which is a shame.

The lamb was great but the brill a bit tough. The staff were helpful and efficient. We moved table as the guys one were so loud. The noise level generally was really high. The corridor and the loos could do with a good clean and repaint. It was obviously well done originally but now very tatty.

The menu sounded very good but we were slightly let down by the dishes. Starters were nice but the mains didn’t really live up to expectations. Lacked flavour and were rather plain. Shame really.
