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

I recently visited here with my wife and her family after a morning of antique hunting (there's a lot of antique shops in Ashburton). We found Moorish Restaurant and having read the menu thought it sounded great. We didn't order much, only 3 soups, 2 tapas, 1 main, 4 cake portions and drinks (non alcoholic). While everything was very nice,... More

I've recently been on a trip to South Devon and visited the town of Ashburton, between Exeter and Plymouth just off the A 38. I had the good fortune to visit Moorish Restaurant for Lunch ; what a welcome surprise ! Outstanding Cuisine and Excellent friendly service. Reasonable prices and well worth a visit.

Started terribly and got worse! We walked into a half full restaurant and the waitress' didn't acknowledge us so we found our own table, then whilst looking at the specials the waitress dumped menus at our tables and still not even a hello. So we looked through the menu choose our meals and drinks, ordered after about ten minutes waiting... More
