Critically acclaimed Moro offers award-winning Moorish cuisine, rooted in Spanish and North African influences. Winner of The Observer’s Best Restaurant Award in 2009, Moro opened in 1997, featuring an understated dining room and rustic yet elegant Moorish fare.

Try the Moorish-influenced dishes in the lively open plan dining room at Moro Exmouth Market or sample exquisite tapas at the long zinc bar. The vibrant open kitchen features an authentic wood burning oven and a charcoal grill.

Menus at Moro London change on a daily basis and sample dishes include the cuttlefish with broad beans, ink and mint or seared pigeon breast and piquillo pepper with garlic purée. Sumptuous desserts include rosewater ice cream and chocolate apricot tart. Passionate about fine sherry, Moro has an extensive list, and all varieties are available by the glass.

At the hub of lively Exmouth Market, Moro in Clerkenwell epitomises fine Moorish dining with an eclectic blend of Mediterranean and African influences. Owners Sam and Sam Clark were named well-deserved winners at 2012’s London Restaurant Festival Awards.

    Best meal I've had it a while!!! The lamb and the turbot were exquisite. Friendly, helpful staff. Discovered a new sherry that was delicious. I will certainly be back the next time I am in London. Thank you very much!

    I enjoyed a very good meal. The menu choices were interesting and I liked the menu items I chose. Service was slow, especially when the items I ordered did not require long preparation or cooking time.

    We came to Moro after a show at Sadlers Wells. The food never disappoints. It remains as excellent, creative and healthy as the first day it opened. Shame the room isn't noise insulated though, it would make for more enjoyable conversation.

    This is my favorite restaurant anywhere. The food is both simple and complex. I had a vegetable mezze platter that held a surprise in every bite. A bit of cinnamon in the couscous, a bit of dill in the beans. Everything was so fresh and full of flavor. The staff was very kind and accommodating.

    Service was superb and the food was exquisite. Really intimate, warm but lively atmosphere in the restaurant. I'll definitely be going again.

    This used to be a wonderful restaurant. I went back after any years to find a drab ambience, unenthusiastic service and tasteless food with over cooked vegetables. A pity as I always had happy memories of this restaurant ...
