When it started poring rain on our walk, we popped into Moyo and was pleasantly surprised. The lovely staff seated us right in front of the fire with fees of the gardens and somewhat hidden mountain. So nice! I had the mussels and they were...More

Moyo serves hearty meals, reminiscent of home cooking, certain to warm you up on a chilly day. The indoor seating area is large and airy, there's also great patio seating.

The ambiance inside the large restaurant is really nice and my server was top-notch. However, I was a little bit disappointed with my nachos order. It seemed like the nacho chips were made from wheat flour instead of corn flour. It was a huge heap...More

The service at this tourist trap is slow, and the fish and chips had bones in it. I ended up swallowing a bone on my first bite which got stuck for 4 hours. Unless you want some overpriced drinks I'd skip this place.

Food was very good and face painting for the kids and adults was fun. Lovely view, and nice fireplace on the chilly days. Family friendly.

So just wondering why you did not respond last year when I wrote the review. Just been to Kirstenbosch again and avoided Moyo- tried the Tea garden place instead!
