Nice atmosphere, good food. A nice place for lunch. They serve every day a lunchmenu. You can eat a la carte, they serve different plates, e.g. North African dishes.

We happened to walk past this fabulous building on a Sunday when they were closed. Just the atmosphere of the garden was enough to make us curious, so we came back on Monday for a coffee and dessert.

Me and a friend were trying to look up for a new restaurant, something different. So we ran into this one, located in the heart of San Jose. It was a bit hard to locate, and the parking spot is right on the curb, not very convenient. Nevertheless, I had heard a lot about this place, so we walked in... More

We were a party of six staying nearby at the Radisson. We had a variety of dishes and glasses of wine. We enjoyed the food and the service by the owner and her assistant waiter. Some of the dishes were different from Mediterrean dishes we have had in the US but they were tasty in their own way. We felt... More

If you like nice food, don't go to this place. The waiters are unbearable, the food is tasteless and tiny. I won't come back

Last week we had dinner at Cafe Moro. We were very impressed with the waiter, Harold, who bent over backwards to make our meal enjoyable. Three of us had the sea bass and it was excellent. The desert platter was very good! The pistachio flan was fabulous!

This restaurant was reccomended by the staff of the hotel we were staying at. The building is beautiful. The food was fabulous and our waiter, Harold, was helpful and attentive. My sea bass was cooked perfectly, and well seasoned. The desserts were huge, try the pistachio flan, it was incredible.
