Moro is always fully booked. We were happy to get a table in advance of a later booking. Unfortunately our main courses took over 30 minutes to show up but were delicious when they arrived. I have mixed feelings which is why I give 4 stars not 5. Menu is limited and idiosyncratic. Service knowledgeable but not overly attentive.

Have visited a pro on a number of occasions. Never reviewed it until now. It's one of the best restaurants in London. It's not for everybody, it's busy, it's quite casual, but the food is incredibly good. Only go though if yiu like the taste real Mediterranean style food. A combination of Spanish and North African with so many flavours... More

My second lunch here. I was very pleased the first time and was not disappointed this time. Started with a divine lamb and saffron soup.Full of interesting and surprising flavours. Followed with the vegetable meze for my friend which she called her 'large plate of loveliness'. I had a wood-grilled whole plaice (very fresh) with warm, and I think marinated,... More

Went for a dinner with friends and it was very disappointing. The room is stark and very noisy , the tables close together and this made conversation difficult. I had a problem choosing as starter and one of our group chose nothing. My lamb broth starter was tasty , but greasy . It came with dumplings but these were the... More

Went after my graduation ceremony. Were made to feel very welcome by friendly staff. I have been using Moro cookbook for years and the food lived up to my very high expectations.

A remarkably overpriced restaurant selling astoundingly bland food for people with too much money and no sense. It is, unfortunately, destined to do well among the new population of London who believe that price is the ultimate signifier of quality and wish to avoid anywhere outside of Zone 2 for fear that they might be murdered or forced to interact...

We took our nephew to celebrate his new job and Moro was as good as ever. We haven't been for a while so it's always nice to rediscover a place and find that standards are still so high. It's a nicely lit buzzy restaurant in the evening and the service was particularly good I thought. The food though is the... More

Came here for a family dinner. The food was average but a bit pricey for its quality. Lastly, the woman in charge of the till and at the entrance with short grey hair was EXTREMELY rude when I asked to take a look at the wine list because my parents enjoyed the Greek wine and I wanted to know the...

First time I've eaten here. Staff are lovely & apparently mostly female. Extremely helpful front of house & very pleasant service generally. Very busy on a Friday night with a surprisingly much older crowd. Venison carpaccio & excellent lamb - wasn't quite sure about the orange in the broad bean puree but all lovely. Presentation is deliberately less finessed. All... 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.
