“Back for more - great food, good value, excellent lamb”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Warmly welcomed by Hassan on a quiet Tuesday evening. One other couple were nearing the end of their meal, probably from the early supper menu. Down to earth and no fuss, a relaxing evening with food of a very high standard. The main menu now offers a two or three course meal for a set price, with a good selection of dishes, and is good value. Also an early evening (pre 7pm) and tapas menu too.

We both went for the spicy chicken livers - delicious! For mains we had a lamb tajine, with prunes and roast almonds, and lamb in mint and honey. The lamb was delicious, tender, plenty of it and no fat. The flavours were fantastic, the mint wasn't over powering. Veg was very good too. Really good flavours.

A genuine warm and friendly family business, definitely worth a visit.

Love the food! Will be back!!

“Amazing moroccan food”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Been for my third visit here and always had a lovely meal. The lamb tagine is my favourite, so full of flavours! The tapas is also excellent. The manager is very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is out of town, so sometimes is quite but we like that. Will definitely be going back soon

“Another great meal”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I cannot understand Louse R's review, we went to Moreno's for our son's birthday on 17th September we had great service and as usual great food. We will continue to visit Moreno's as it is one of our favourite local restaurants because of consistent good food and service.

“Wish I'd had something to eat!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We booked here on the 20th Sept and was really looking forward to it based on the reviews here and friends and colleagues opinions.
We ordered a drink and the food within 5 mins of arriving but an hour later we'd finished the drinks and there was no sight of any food. Within that time no one had come over to see if we were OK, wanted another drink or to explain why there was such a delay.
I'm not sure if this is because we had a wowcher or to encourage us to increase the drinks bill. After the hour we just left.
I was really disappointed as it's a local restaurant and I was really keen to try the food.

“Great Moroccan food!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Haven't been to Moreno's for a while, we dropped in for a dinner tonight. I was surprised to find out the whole restaurant is newly decorated. The décor was OK before like a Moroccan coffee/dinner, now it's Moroccan posh! Only things that haven't changed are the great hospitality from the owner and quality of the food!

We ordered soup and Calamari Ring for starters, and Lamb Tagine and Lamb Moreno for mains. The food were all came with generous potions, and so tasty! The meat were basically melting in your mouth!

The owner was very attentive and polite. We had some interesting conversation about Moroccan food, and I also tried to get the recipe of Lamb Tagine because it was so nice but was a failed attempt, obviously – can't blame me for trying!

If the restaurant is in the city centre, I bet people would fight over for a table, tasty food and great service, everything you need for a night out!
