Visited midweek with friends! I have seen the Morenos sign often is I passed by but have never ventured inside.
We were met with a smile and shown to our table- we had a living social voucher which entitled us to wine and a main course and couscous- I opted for a spicy chicken tangine

. The food arrived piping hot and was very flavoursome with good quality ingredients and a good mix of spices and herbs. I did wish I'd ordered a portion of potatoes to go with the dish rather than the cous cous as for me that would've been a better combination. Other meals at our table were lamb dishes- nobody left anything!
We all had desserts- can definitely recommend the lemon cheesecake.
The owner came out to talk to us once we'd finished eating-which I like- he was really friendly and keen to know what we had thought of our food .
All in all a very enjoyable evening,

I decided to try this place for a change and I'm so glad I did. This is one of the nicest meals I have had in a restaurant and it was the early bird menu! I had the soup and then the lamb meatballs.

I thoroughly enjoyed both dishes and the mint tea was a refreshing change.

I will be back the next time I am in the area on business.

Great Morrocan restaurant -we had a living social voucherand were made to feel completely at ease - nothing was too much trouble. The starters did take a while to come but when they arrived they were obviously all freshly prepared. Lovel feta salad and some of the best deep fried calamari ever had.
The tagines were superb particularly the lamb with prunes ,almond and honey.
We were the only diners which could have made for an uncomfortable evening but in reality meant that the owner/chef came and chatted and added to what was a pleasnt evening.
Will certainly go again
