Mains were gorgeous!

Our visit here is mixed. The main dishes they offer (we ordered one sea bass, one duck) were amazing! Definitely 5 out of 5 in terms of quality, cooked perfectly, tasty. Service was good. We gave 4 rather than 5 as the tapas was good but not the quality as the mains - so those that opted for... read more

Friendly reception. Choice of some tapas, three desserts and three mains (fish meat, vegetarian). Mains only served for dinner. Mains were adequate, though underseasoned. Pan con tomate was a joke. Two chunks of untoasted bake-off wholemeal baguette with tasteless tomato puree and a couple of slices of Serrano ham for GBP 4.95. Total bill for three tapas, two mains and... More

My partner and I had dinner at Moorish while staying at a BnB nearby in order to attend a wedding. I was a bit unsure, having looked at their website, about the small menu, but actually we both found dishes we really enjoyed. The restaurant was quite busy for the time of year. The staff were very friendly and the... More

Ashburton is a real foodies town. Not only does it host one of the country's top cookery schools, it is also home to some very good food shops and delicatessen. It only follows that there should be a good restaurant in town. This is it. Good fresh food at an honest price.

This is the only non-pub venue to serve food in Ashburton. The decor and lighting are pleasing. The food was interesting and tasty, Moroccan based. There are plenty of tapas dishes available but only three mains, a meat, a fish and a vegetarian option. We tried both the fish and chicken and it was delicious.

I come here 2 or 3 times a year and love it. This time with close friend. Always a relaxed atmosphere with friendly relaxed service. A range of seating arrangements. Specials on chalk board, some tapas and mains plus a standard menu of tapas and mains. Good wine list, sherries and sweet wine. Sometimes with the tapas they have seemed... More

Found this place quite by chance one lunchtime with my sister. The place was packed , the atmosphere buzzing and we got lucky as someone was just leaving. The ribs are divine , the chicken wings tasty but I found the humus a little lacking in flavour. All in all would recommend

Just came in for some cheese and wine. The cheese plate was terrible for 7.50. Only 2 types of cheese and badly presented. Cheese all crumbeled unable to put on the few crackers. When we spoke to manager he was very unreceptive. He took the cheese plate away without an apology. Perhaps the other menu items are served better. Did... More
