Unpretentious top end eating experience.Relaxed and homely with no lack of flavour but somehow not registering as particularly Moorish,Spanish or Morroccan in identity.Bear this in mind and it will be hard to be disappointed.

A great experience with gorgeous food and wines. Ambiance a little noisy so not suitable for a relationship romantic date!

Sam and Sam Clark’s problem is they have raised the level of what might be considered ordinary. The philosophy is to produce simple Moorish/Spanish food of excellent quality and they certainly achieve that, but I suppose having the Moro cook books and using them for recipes and inspiration for so long we maybe expected too much. In truth my wife... More

I headed here shortly before Christmas having intended to go for a long time. My starter was a carpaccio and my main a lamb dish. We finished with the cheese board and selected sherries to go with each cheese. The restaurant itself is very nice with a great ambience. It's busy but doesn't feel rushed and the service attentive and... More

Moro has been a staple fixture in Exmouth Market for many years now, and offers Moorish/Spanish style food in a relaxed and laid back restaurant. it is not cheap, but the quality of the food is consistently good, and the staff are excellent- many of whom have also worked there for several years.

This is how every restaurant should be (but so many fall far short). Top-shelf service from the moment we arrived and were greeted and seated on through the meal when our waitress handled all matters adroitly and then to the end when we departed. At the beginning of the meal, my wife and I tried the olive oil and bread... More

I waited to review this restaurant after a surprisingly great first visit a week ago, when it was busy and we ate a fast but excellent dinner at the bar. This evening we sat at a table, ate three courses, and were again completely impressed by the front of house staff and by the food. We are time consuming customers... More

Took some clients there for lunch about a fortnight ago. The waitress seemed in a hurry and suggested she order our tapas for us. We decided to go for her options which were mostly inedible and included thin tasteless slices of chorizo, an aubergine dish which resembled slime, chicken wings more befitting of a local high street chicken and chips...

We had a late dinner here to celebrate Xmas. A large-ish group, which the staff dealt with efficiently (and with charm). The food - as ever - was great. Highlights for me were beautifully-cooked lamb with freekeh, and amazing ice cream with raisins soaked in Malaga. Moro is fab......

I came here for an early dinner before going to a show at Sadler's Wells. The staff checked whether we were going to a show and made sure that we were able to leave in good time to get there. The menu is excellent (I had a kale and goat's cheese chilli salad, followed by lamb with aubergine freekeh and... More

Description
It might be one of the hippest venues in one of the hippest parts of the capital but this Clerkenwell restaurant still manages to be relaxed and more concerned with good food than being trendy. The restaurant’s décor with its polished wooden floors, long zinc bar and open view to the kitchen and its charcoal grill and wood-burning oven is functional but welcoming. The Moorish cuisine complete with subtle European influence is every bit as striking as it was when the restaurant opened its doors nearly ten years ago. Tapas served all day at the bar. Reservations taken by phone and directly from our website.PLEASE NOTE - Moro restaurant is now open seven days a week. Please refer to our website for correct opening hours

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
