Find this popular restaurant set over two floors (converted basement wine cellars & ground floor) on the historic seafront.
The basement holds an informal brasserie, where you can eat lightly, or fairly lavishly - the the menu overlaps that of the smarter restaurant above. These 'Little Mora' offerings range from small dishes or starters such as 'Homemade Crabcakes'; Pasta & Risotto through Fish & Chips to Burgers & Steaks from the Grill.
The main Restaurant, with its open plan kitchen, offers starters such as 'Smoked Duck Salad with Spiced Pecans & Cranberries'; 'Pan-Fried Scallops with Confit Belly Pork, Roast Sweet Potato & Orange Purée' and 'Grilled Goats Cheese with Smoked Aubergine Toast, Lentil & Cumin Dressing' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Seared Medallions of Monkfish with a Chorizo Casserole'; 'Roast Rump of Lamb with Cottage Pie, Savoy Cabbage & Madeira Sauce'; 'Seafood Linguini - crab, mussels, clams & king prawns - in a white wine sauce'; 'Calves Liver with Bacon, Bubble & Squeak & Creamed Mustard Onions' - plus plenty of Steaks & Cuts from the Grill.
Those with a sweet tooth will be tempted by the likes of 'Orange & Cointreau Cheesecake'; 'Candied Ginger Crème Brulée' and 'Banana, Chocolate & Marshmallow Bread Pudding'.
