Moroccan | Shoreditch, Clerkenwell

Back in 1997 when Moro first opened, Exmouth Market was still a scruffy Clerkenwell street and this restaurant with its implausibly good looking bar staff and open kitchen was the second most exciting thing to happen to the area food-wise since The Eagle threw open its doors. Run by the marvellously-monikered Sam and Sam Clark, it's still turning out great food in a room that's packed every day of the week.

"...yes, Moro most emphatically can still cut it. I hope to be coming here long into the future, complete with ear-trumpet – it’s notoriously noisy – kvetching about the years I missed. " READ REVIEW

"Although new restaurants pop up regularly in Exmouth Market, well-established Moro still has the edge, serving quality Spanish/North African food that is cooked simply and presented with a twist." READ REVIEW
