Great restaurant, one of my favorites in London. Had diner at Moro this night, and food and service were absolutely great. You could add a 'dining alone' stamp to the review, as they always make a space available at the bar when eating alone, and that's a good spot to dine on your own.


We dined here last night and it was absolutely superb! The service was welcoming & friendly whilst precise and efficient. We selected a range of dishes and all were delicious.


It's rare to go somewhere in London where the service, ambience and food are all amazing and in equal measure. Having spent a lot of time choosing a restaurant for my mum's birthday, we settled on Moro, and did not regret our decision. From the moment we walked in, the service was attentive and personal. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. All in all - this restuarant deserves 5 *.


Recalled really enjoying a meal here on my one previous visit several years ago so returned yesterday expecting more of the same only to be disappointed. In a nutshell: portions were meagre, food lacked interest, prices (mains in particular) were unwarranted. What really soured the experience, however, was the arrogant and dismissive attitude of the maitre'd who really ought to examine whether the service sector is where he really wants to be!


Have been to Moro on and off for 15 years. We went again last week. Excellent as ever. Fine friendly service, knowledgable staff and food that is exceptional: interesting, flavoursome, inviting. The best bread in london. A wine list with dozens if interesting well priced spanish wines. I see a lot of negative reviews but I cannot understand why. Every time I go it reminds me of what a great restaurant should be.

After all the hype it was one of the most disappointing meals I have had in London in 15 years. I work in hospitality and found the service slow, food very average, over priced and bland. If you are after the north African flavours mentioned on the website you will be dissapoipnted.


Went to Moro on a Sunday lunchtime following a recommendation but very disappointed. Couples were seated at tables on a long row with not much space between, to be expected when a place is brimming with clientele but the place was only a third full. Food was uninspiring and presentation boring, lentils on a plate with three slices of pork, a couple of chunks of aubergines and a highly oiled salmorejo sauce did not warrant the extortionate bill, altogether a very uninspired visit. Won't be going back.


Went to Moro for the second time for my boyfriends birthday and it was lovely. The staff were so friendly and happy to serve up a birthday cake that I'd brought with us after the meal. The food was incredible and completely worth the money. Moro has an unpretentious, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere. Wish I could afford to eat there every day!!

The food was great, much enjoyed, but the service was risible. We waited 45 minutes from the end of the starter to the mains being serviced. Every single time we wanted a drink we had to flag someone down and my wife even had to get up and interrupt three waitresses chatting to get the bill. I was really disappointed and couldn't imagine recommending Moro.


It's hard to find good tapas but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend Moro - expensive, food too salty, ridiculously small portions and very arrogant staff. Seems like a place resting on it's laurels!


All I can say about the other comments is "Bad Luck" ... we waltzed in at 10pm on a Friday and had one of the most defining food moments of London (and our lives)!


We were warmly welcomed by a very enthusiastic maitre d' but once seated it was definitely not service with a smile. The waiters were not forthcoming. Not once were we asked how our meal was or whether we wanted more drinks. The food was terrible-plain, tasteless and massively over-priced. Particularly the starters ( avoid the jamon and peas, you will be de-podding those raw suckers for ever! ) Won't be going back!


Really disappointed... I went to Moro on Saturday. The waiters were nice, but the food was really boring. The chicken I had was tender but the sides were terribly boring and the whole thing was presented like a canteen. I won't return. Also, I am working from time to time close to Moro and they have a tent on Exmouth Market. The hygiene is terrible, the woman makes your things with hands with gloves, but then take the money with the same gloves. She is not friendly at all and I won't return either.


Extremely disappointing meal. Dirty tables, lackluster service, dull tapas menu, an uninspired and tasteless main and far too over-priced for the quality.
