    It wasn't the best tapas place I've been, and the food was a bit dry. Service is ok, but when crowded the restaurant is so narrow that you are pushed when eating. Nice place to go when quiet or nearby

    Everything was delicious but the grilled tetilla cheese with membrillo and walnut was a particular highlight - pair it with cruz del mar sherry! 😋😋😋

    Morito has the tastiest food I ever had in my life. Anywhere in the world. Stop reading Foursquare and just go there.

    Everything here is stunning - from the fried aubergine to the hummus.

    Good tapas plates but a bit pricey for small quantities of food. Its good tapas for one person but plates too small for sharing.

    Tasty tapas in a cozy spot. The aubergine is the clear winner. Skip the tempura.

    Spiced lamb with aubergine and the croquetas are delicious. Not the most comfortable seating but the food is well worth it

    London pioneers of the cuisine of North Africa, southern Spain and the eastern Mediterranean. Morito opened in May and is already very busy. Fortunately, it accepts bookings.

    Eaten here since it opened. Frightened to let everyone know in case youse all spoil it for locals. Explore new Hackney venue too.

    Carnivores should try the sweetbreads & the pork belly. Great veggie options, too - highlights were the pardon peppers & the mushrooms. Friendly, staff who aren't trying to get you out of the door.

    They take reservations during the day, but not at night. Best for singles, couples and smaller groups as it's teeny tiny.
