Having dined here before, my expectations were high and I was not disappointed. The menu is fairly short, meaning that each dish can be perfectly executed and cooked fresh. The desserts I'm sure haven't changed for 18 years, but the Yoghurt cake is so good, why change it?
Exmouth Market is a gastronauts paradise, with Moro leading the way. The food isn't pretentious, it's just honest and full of flavour. Each dish has a great contrast of textures and flavours without being over complicated. The presentation is rustic but that just adds to the explosion of flavours beneath. The crab, prawn and mussel salad set the tone. Good meaty fish with a spicy, zingy background. The lamb with bulgar wheat and labneh was one of those dishes where you cut your final pieces into smaller bits just to extend the experience. Then dessert. The Yoghurt cake isn't really a cake, it doesn't even look that nice, just try it and you will love it. Try it with the rosewater and cardamom ice cream and your mouth will be singing all the way home.
Three courses with a couple of glasses of wine each comes to about £55 a head which I feel is great value for money.

We have been to Moro regularly. This time was a (not busy) Saturday lunchtime.
Food and drink were excellent as always but the service was ‘shared’ across tables, which meant basically no service.
The waitresses were too busy chatting by the till to take our drinks order and we had to call across the restaurant to get the bill. At no point did anyone check if we were happy with anything or everything, not even when they brought the bill. The whole experience was extremely offhand.
We have had much better service in the past when it has been much busier, so maybe they were training new staff or fielding the B team. It was very disappointing, particularly as we were taking someone who had never been before and was excited to be going.

went with colleagues for lunch. the room is spacious and unusual, really special. the dishes on the menu are also unusual and very good (the chorizo/chick pea starter was very good, as was the lamb – some colleagues tried the kid and said it was amazing – chocolate tart was also very good). service is ok (had to ask twice for the tap water) but friendly and helpful (e.g., for the wine). it is a bit expensive, but the portions are on the big side, so definitely worth a visit. we all had a good time.
