Location and contact

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

I have been eating here off and on for over ten years. The food was for a long time well ahead of the competition. Now that has caught up. That means that some of the features here that you used to ignore have become more...More

We first visited Moro about 10 years ago and were blown away by the unusual menu choices (we still rave about the sea urchin). We always vowed to return and we did so on Saturday night and unfortunately it just wasn’t the same. The starters...More

From start to finish, we were underwhelmed by our meal & experience at Moro. I normally love this type of cuisine, but nothing really stood out & we actually left a few things on the plate uneaten - not the best sign. On top of...More

Legendary London restaurant, exciting, good looking and marvellous food. Waiters exceptional and happy and the address in Exmouth Market a fun place to visit. Adventurous menu inspires interest in Spanish food.

Moro serves Spanish food with a North African edge. It's interesting and often delicious. But this time, there were some problems. I started with a deep fried rabbit and artichoke combination. The slices of artichoke were succulent and contrasted beautifully in texture and flavour with...More

Fantastic food. Lovely ambiance. I’m not a vegetarian but I had the vegetable mezze and it was great. My parters lamb was similarly brilliant. Can’t wait to go back

We were in London for a few days of work, and wanted to try someplace new. Moro was on a list of "essential" London restaurant, so sounded like fun. Just a serious mistake. Expensive, unexciting, and poorly prepared food. My sweetheart and I arrived on...More

We had lunch at Moro on a Saturday having not visited for a few years. The dining space is large and light with a long bar and an open kitchen. The tables are quite functional and fairly close together so it can feel crowded and...More

I had a lovely meal with friends at Moro. The service is excellent, very helpul and attentive, whilst somehow also being laid back. The food was delicious, one of the nicest meals I have had all year. I can't wait to return!

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
