We have been there a few times. Mainly for lunch and a couple of dinners. Quality is OK and the staff is nice and gentle. Nothing to scream for pleasure, but an OK place in an area where it's difficult to find anything different from the usual pub cuisine.

The food is delicious, the service is very friendly and the ambience is relaxed and comfortable. We come here every time we visit Ashburton. Try the cake, you won't regret it!

We were recommended this place so on that basis visited.... Lovely quint resturant which was busy and had a nice atmosphere. However we hadn't come for a drink we had come for food and sadly we found that there was very little flavour to our meals, and the overall "foodie" experience just wasn't to be. The menus also rather limited... More

We had a fantastic meal here- my parents first foray into Tapas and a celebration on their retirement! The young lady that s ever us was delightful, attentive without being intrusive and helped us to decide on what to have. The food was delicious and the portions perfect, would highly recommend this little restaurant!

We ordered after few minutes wait the ribs hummus sardines and beans and chiken. The olives in the chiken were great so we ordered more olives and potatoes bread. Pleasant service, all tables busy , drinking wine Wednesday evening . Ribs were great with cloves!, but all quite interesting flavours. Enjoy!

We have been trying to visit Moorish for several years, but every time we go they have been booked and are not open on Sunday and Monday, so we were sighted to finally get in and it was so worth it. Fabulous food. Really packed with people, they were turning people away. We had tapas followed by a cheese board... More

I have been here several times, when i attend the Ashburton cookery school. Its a small and friendly restaurant. Menu isn't huge, but is interesting. I had the lamb and my friend had the stuffed aubergine, which looked and tasted amazing. Dessert was also lovely.

Pleasantly quite (but it was early Weds evening). Has an authentic feel and what we chose was just great. Choice a bit limited but all very good. Attentive but not intruding service. Would definitely visit again.

I came in for a coffee on Tuesday 2nd August. The woman who served me was very helpful and polite and made great soya lattes! There was beautiful music playing and a great relaxing atmosphere, as well as very comfortable seating areas. Definitely recommend and will hopefully be coming back for dinner soon.
