Giles Coren’s Top 50 Restaurants in The Times, November 2013


I’ve put this here to stand for all the brilliant little tapas places that have sprung up around town which are more of a favourite collective phenomenon than a collection of favourite places. It also stands for Moro, of which it is an offshoot, which I love but visit rarely. This place is simultaneously supercool and modest, and as much like a brilliant little backstreet place in Spain as you’ll find in this country.

Chef proprietors and married couple, Sam & Sam Clark travel far and wide to find inspiration for their menus and the result is a mix of perfectly executed classics and more adventurous dishes (kudos to the chefs who were beavering away behind the bar in full view too). We love a restaurant that doesn't rest on its laurels and despite its popularity Morito continues to deliver new, exciting menus.

The London Foodie, October 2012


Morito is my latest foodie discovery in London. The food is beautifully made, bursting with flavour with some super fresh, top quality ingredients that really shine through. Very well priced, it is also not going to break the bank. This is a gem of a place, and I cannot wait to return. Very highly recommended.

Morito is one of my favourite restaurants in London. Cosied up next to big brother Moro next door, Morito is a glam little Spanish bar, serving authentic and delicious tapas, often with a Moorish twist, and great wines and sherry too. I am often found there nursing a glass of my favourite Basque white wine Txacoli.

The format of Morito is essentially a relaxed tapas bar. For me, it is the perfect place to eat: the cooking, as you would expect from this stable, is completely delicious.

Sam and Sam Clark really are the Midases of the London restaurant scene. Moro is, well, Moro and their three cookery books are as near to perfection as humanly possible – perhaps only matched by Claudia Roden’s A New Book of Middle Eastern Food.

***** (5 Stars)


Eating here is like being transported straight to a tapas bar in Spain... The cooking is superb and the well-chosen all-Spanish wines are worthy of investigation - don't miss the sherries.

John Lanchester, The Guardian, January 8 2011


Morito is a tapas bar right next door to the famously successful Moro in Clerkenwell. The cooking is excellent and the list of hits I had was almost as long as the list of dishes I tried – and it was a long list;

Let’s go to Morito in Exmouth Market and try to forget about it. You’re gonna love Morito. It’s totally new and tiny and bolted on next door to the fabulous Moro, which continues to be one of the most exciting, talked about, foodiest, fashionablest, funkiest food places in London, even though it has been around now for what must be millennia.

It was more enjoyable eating here than in many restaurants costing three times as much. Go early, go late. Or wait. There are few places worth waiting for but Morito is one.
