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.

    Food was delicious, service was friendly but a bit rushed. It is a shame that the great food is not surrounded by a more theatrical environment. At our 7pm sitting it felt a bit like a pre-show restaurant rather than a temple to great cooking.

    It was fabulous!!!
    Charming service, fantastic food!!!
    Boyfriend said starter (brandade, eggs, bacon, mushrooms) was in top 10 best dishes of his life!!!
    Amazing wine suggested by our waiter matched the pork belly I had as a main and mushroom soup was to die for!
    And what about the bread with olive oil?!? Oh so good!!!
    Should have gone ages ago and can't wait to be back!!!

    Great food and our waitress was very friendly!

    The food was amazing. However service was a little haphazard. No one waiter seemed to be responsible for our table and it took a long time to get anyone's attention. We were left sitting with dirty plates for too long on two occasions. However, I cannot emphasise enough that the food was exceptionally good.

    Moro was fine but not great. The food was pleasant but the presentation was lacking. My very oily pork has a great pile of water cress piled on top of it. Nothing wrong with the taste but it did not look attractive. I orderdered the flight of sherry - I got three large glasses, too large really, but no tasting notes or anything like that. Not as special as I had hoped.

    Consistently delicious, creative, perfectly cooked food and warm, attentive service. The chocolate and apricot tart never fails to delight.

    As usual a very warm welcome followed by an excellent meal selected from an imaginative menu. We started with the cava aperitivo which was followed by perfectly prepared food cooked to perfection [clams, sea bass, lamb]. The restaurant was fully booked with an excellent ambience.
