Good vegitarian tapas

Great evening meal in this busy little restaurant. We had tapas and the aubergine main. All the dishes were very tasty particularly the fennel and feta. Staff were polite and efficient.

So disappointed! Food was so poor as was service! It was a Friday night and I wish I hadn't bothered. Scruffy and rubbish little cafe.

Found this place on Sat night when we were staying in Ashburton for the weekend. It is super. Tapas were great (we only had a couple, would make sure we were more hungry next time), also had mains and deserts which were both at least as good as the Tapas. Glad we booked as it was Sat evening and totally... More

Nothing special, very dark inside, felt like a burden in here. Sadly won't be visiting again. Came here a good 5 years ago.. probably more.. with my nan and enjoyed a posh hot chocolate and comfy chairs

I'm nervous about this sort of themed restaurant in a small town, but I have to say that it was very good. Should have been busier for a Friday night, but they assure me it is during the summer. But basically, good tapas, nice wine, and all very reasonably priced.

I live here and have been probably a dozen times on Friday and Saturday nights and would never really have needed to book. I can never understand why this place is never more than half full. The food is excellent, my friends and I all agree the tapas are better than at The Olive in Newton Abbot, which is always... More

Dear Reviewer ( alfajerry), Thank you for taking the time to write about your latest visit at moorish. I feel I need to clarify the price of our bottled beers ( 330ml) are £ 3,25. I fail to understand how you came to that inflated price! Thanks for your kind comments regarding our food. Please feel free to pop around... More

I have eaten here a few times now, and when I come down to the Ashburton Cookery School. (This is a Mecca for Foodies who want to become better Foodies, and lean to cook like a Foodie) For a small and sleepy little South Devon hamlet to provide such a gem is not much short of a miracle. With only... More

Great evening with the usual high standard of Tapas. Always enjoy our meals here and as it was only half full when we were there, we were able to chat more easily. Can be a bit noisy sometimes when full. Still worth it for the food.

We went to Moorish as a party of 8 as a birthday celebration. Very relaxing with tasty tapas shared between us all followed by excellent main courses. Friendly and attentive service throughout. Olga helped us with the arrangements in the preceding days. We go to Moorish most Saturdays for coffee and cake and will now add it as a regular... More

This has become our favourite restaurant in the area. Always high quality ingredients, perfectly and imaginatively cooked. The menu is different every time, which we love, and there are always plenty of veggie options. Their potato dishes are always superb! Last week we had 5 small tapas and one bigger; desserts and drinks - plenty for us, and all for... More
