LONDON | Morito Hackney Road is the third restaurant from Sam & Samantha Clark of Moro and Morito on Exmouth Market fame. Unlike the Exmouth Market location, the space is here is open and relatively large, with high concrete ceilings, concrete floors, and bright lights. Yes, it’s bright and airy but does suffer from lots of hash surfaces and a lack of noise dampening.

The food is influenced by what can be found in Southern Spain, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean, with a noticeable Cretan flavour – Head Chef Marianna Leivaditaki grew up in Crete where she worked in her family’s fish restaurant. Food is designed to share and comes out as it’s ready, which is a style of dining that we really like. Service is attentive, even when the place gets busy (which it often does) and staff are well versed in the intricacies of the menu and the ingredients of each dish.

The menu changes daily, depending on what’s fresh and good that day, and contains a lot of things that make us happy. The pan con tomate is light and fresh, and a great way to start the meal while fried aubergine ‘chips’ served with feta and date molasses are divine. The delicate and tender charcoal grilled quail served with rose harissa is another highlight. The drinks menu is Spanish focused and features reds and whites along with an on-trend orange. An impressive, focused range of sherry and vermouth and a few other spirits round off the list nicely. Beer drinkers are unfortunately left short, with only Alhambra Especial available.

We don’t mind loud restaurants, but Morito is really loud, so keep this in mind as it might not suit the particular occasion you’re going out for. Apart from the noise and lack of attention to the beer selection though, there’s not too much to fault here.
