It's been a while since I've been here. The food and venue is still great.
I have been going to Moro for over ten years. This time the food was overpriced (watery fish, dirty plates, teeny tiny courgette salad) - it’s always on the more expensive end anyway, but at least you used to get value for money. The service is always great, but even the bread has changed? Everything tasted like they were trying to cut corners and to be honest, I probably won’t be back. Given today’s climate, a real lack of vegetarian options.
This is the second time i have been to Moro, both times a gift. Whilst the food is nice and fairly tasty, i don't think it warrants the £25 main course price. The presentation is quite poor and every dish was covered with parsley which shows little imagination. The service was nice and friendly though and there was a good wine list. Maybe the tapas menu us a better way to go?
Best lamb I’ve ever tasted.
Another fantastic pre-Sadlers Wells trip to Moro (they did check if we were going to something, but without any sense of rushing us). The lamb has always been so good that I've yet to try anything else on the menu, but the menu changes regularly enough that I've never had the same dish twice. I was uncertain how watermelon would be with lamb - but if the Moro chefs think it works I am willing to give it a go. Three of us had it and all loved it! The lighter summer menu with salad meant more room for dessert - although we think we've struck the right balance sharing two between three! The chocolate and apricot torte was amazing, but may have been too much if not shared. It balanced beautifully shared with the yogurt cake.
I was really disappointed by Moro. After living in Islington for 12 years and finally getting around to try it, I thought it was overpriced and the food was just not up to a good standard. Our starters were ok - the pigeon and little pork hamburger were ok - nothing wrong with them but nothing memorable. My lamb dish was woefully undercooked (and I enjoy steak tartare so I don't mind pink meat!), and boring. My partner had the pork which came with a ratatouille that just didn't work. We did not bother with dessert. It's such a shame because Moro clearly rests on its laurels and reputation, but does not live up to it. There are lots of better restaurants out there, including Caravan on Exmouth Market.
Food was excellent, service was good but slow to pick up on low drinks.
Wonderful, as always.
We very much enjoyed the food at Moro- a nice variety of flavours and textures. The staff were pleasant and efficient.
The decor is very uninteresting with wooden tables that could be found in a cafe - a horrible tone of green on the bottom wall- and that’s it! Not even an attempt at ambiance.
The noise level - even when it was half full - made it impossible to have a conversation so we left after mains and went elsewhere for desserts.
I would not go back but the food is worth trying.
Always lovely food and wine. Great for pre theatre. Really enjoy sitting at the bar
Lovely pre-ballet meal. We all had the vegetarian meze which was delicious!
Excellent restaurant with attentive staff and great food
My absolute favourite restaurant in London. The food never disappoints. My only criticism, being coeliac, is that GF bread is not offered.
One of my favourite restaurants in London. Always a great atmosphere, the menu changes regularly and the food is always superb. I love eating at the bar!
Very good as usual
Still, consistently, some of the best cooking in London. And a passionate team that care about the food and the drink! Can't wait to go back again.
A good spot for a meal out, didn’t feel rushed and staff were brilliant. But my quail starer was effectively raw and a friends was over done. Few slightly odd combos in the mains too.
Really interesting menu, the calves liver was the best I've had. All the dishes we ordered were very tasty, the cocktails were great and an interesting selection of wines including a chilled red. we plan to revisit at some point.
It’s great in warm weather to sit outside; inside is too noisy and they try to pack too many people in. Food delicious and service very attentive.
9 times out of 10 when I try to book this place at short notice I fail but this time I was lucky. Its great here, and such good value for how good the food is.
Fabulous occasion and highly recommended. The food was up to its usual excellent standards. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed.
Absolutely fabulous restaurant. Food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the charming gentleman looking after us. Attention to detail, remembering what each of us were eating and making us feel very welcome. We will certainly return. Thank you Moro.
Moro never disappoints. Another great meal. Complex flavours. Interesting ingredients. Great cooking.
Delicious food and lovely wine. Not bad value at all!
I am always enjoy my meal and the Moro experince when I go there. I did this time and I will go again as I have for many years
We enjoyed the whole experience of Moro the staff could not be more helpful & knowledgeable about the food & the wine list choices, we had a fantastic Cava & Douro Red 2014 which Eulelia recommended the choice was 'perfect' & the service was so polite & friendly but totally balanced & added to the overall excellent atmosphere. The fish course was so tasty & the puddings were wonderful. Thank You to everyone at the Moro as it was our Mother's birthday 89 & she loved the upbeat atmosphere & kindness shown
Attention to detail with olive oil ,sea salt in hand made pots
Use of different herbs made the food so distinctive.
Some of the staff seemed a bit full of themselves and lacked a bit of warmth
Pricey but worth it
Moro is without doubt one of the best dining experiences in London. Wonderful, seasonal, tasty, elegant dishes produced with a care that belies their apparent simplicity. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and unfussy. And the dining room, adjacent to the kitchen, is lively and fun.
I genuinely love this place.
Good for wheelchair access although quite a steep ramp in so will need a push!
We had as usual a perfectly good meal at Moro. The noise level is very high, which will probably discourage us from dining there again.
Amazing as usual. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. Following years of being regular, if occasional, visitors we were delighted to bring our son for his 22nd birthday. He was mightily impressed too!
Delicious food, great atmosphere, excellent service, fantastic value. Would definitely recommend.
Always an enjoyable meal. Menu/food keeps on evolving and Sam and team keep it interesting.
it remains one of my favorite London restaurants with its casual elegance, superb service, great food, good for vegeterians and people who need to eat gluten-free. Highly recommend it. Worth a trip across town.
Food was excellent at every stage: bread, starter, main and dessert. Waiter was attentive without being over-attentive. Food was served promptly. We really enjoyed the whole experience.
This was my first visit since the late ‘90s and it was even better than I remembered. All the food and drinks we ordered were absolutely delicious and the service was excellent, attentive but not too much so. It is such a relaxed place to eat. It is expensive but such a treat.
As always the food was excellent. the service was relaxed, friendly and efficient without being intrusive.
Perhaps it is our aging ears, but it did seem noisy and it was a little difficult to hear one another.
Twenty years after my first visit Moro remains one of my favourite London restaurants.
Moro used to be my favourite but unfortunately, it seems to have lost some of its greatness. We had a 3 course meal and out of the whole thing, i only remember the wine, the bread and the aubergine side dish that came with my main dish. Everything else was not overly spectacular. Moro, please bring back your glory days.
Always a great experience. Never disappointed by a great team
Fantastic restaurant and one of my favourites. Very interesting menu which is always changing.
