“Gosh, it’s impressive when a restaurant can stay on form in this way!” – Samuel and Samantha Clark’s Exmouth Market favourite holds “many special memories” for legions of reporters. The “beautifully judged” Moorish/Iberian dishes deliver “wonderful flavours” as does the “unique selection of Iberian wines and superlative range of sherries”. There is a ‘but’ however – ratings did ease off a smidgeon this year, with incidents of “chaotic” service and the remorseless noise-levels of this deafening, hard-edged room denting the “happy vibe”.
“Amazingly consistent over the years, and still in a league of its own” – this “mad busy”, but “laid back and friendly” Exmouth Market favourite “still retains its zing”, serving “inventive riffs on Spanish/North African dishes” showcasing “clear, clean flavours”, and “an exciting wine list” that’s “particularly strong on sherries”; “it’s still too noisy”, though.
“Year-after-year, true to its mission!”; this “consistently superb” Exmouth Market favourite has incredibly staying power, maintaining its “outstandingly flavourful” Moorish/Hispanic food, “excellent Iberian wines” and “buzzy scene”; as ever, it’s “too noisy”.
“There’s nowhere quite like Moro!” – this “joyous” Exmouth Market perennial thrives on its “exciting” Moorish/Andalucian cuisine, “massive and unusual wine list”, and “surprisingly good value”; the acoustics, though, are “challenging”.
Moro Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The poor acoustics and noisy noise betray Moro's origin as a supermarket - when the restaurant is busy it is difficult to maintain a conversation across the table. But the food is consistently good, with flavours of southern Spain and north Africa bringing sunshine into the most drab London winter's day"
"Consistently good since it first opened - I've never had a bad meal here."
"Twice here in 2016. Absolutely consistent, gosh, its impressive when a restaurant can stay on form in this way. Did not recognise anything on the menu from previous visits but as ever here everything looks tempting and is delicious - had 8 different dishes and all were top. And the sherries are an extra treat. had another great dinner early April - the spicing and tastes are so original and spot on. Its busy and the service can slow up but always charming."
"Returning to an old favourite. Still up there with the best. Food superb, service a bit Norf Lunnun hip but OK."
"Old, but refuses to gather moss. Sherry selection and (Spanish) cheese plate still an example to newbies in the Spanish food business."
"The food at Moro is consistently good, as is the sherry. But the dining room (I am old enough to remember when it was a supermarket) is noisy, and it can sometimes be difficult to make conversation with your fellow diner(s)."
"Food is always good, ambience rather let down by the noise levels and sometimes unhelpful service. Their stall in Exmouth Market provides excellent street food"
