Went to Moyo Kirstenbosch for out Christmas lunch and we had two waiters dedicated to our table. They brought in halaal food which was very nice and from what I heard from my colleagues the other food was also very nice. I thought I lost my phone at the restaurant and went back to see if they picked it up.... More

We went to Moyo's in Kirstenbosch for our year end/Christmas lunch. Kirstenbosch was as always the best possible "stage/backdrop" for our function. Alas, due to the lack of staff, it would appear that the "show" could not proceed as expected. The drinks were delayed for just too long...the food took just as long. I must admit though that the chicken... More

Wanted to have a nice Sunday breakfast, somewhere relaxed without being overly pretentious or overpriced - ie just a decent, respectable place that offers good value. Moyo SEEMED like it would be perfect, but sadly it is actually below fair, basic standards. I wish I had listened to the other reviews shown here, warning of bad food and bad service.... More

Africa is not known for its cuisine. Moyo is honest when it tells you that you will experience African Food. The food is bad , the service is atrocious and the whole energy in the restaurant is just toxic. This is so sad for a restaurant with such splendid settings and they do have a large staff compliment but they... More

I've stand in front of the desk and request for the bill twice but nothing happened. The servent just chat to each other, no one moves. I stand there like a fool for more than 10 min. Then I check the rate for this restaurant in tripadviser... I should check it before I walk into that restaurant...

Greatest of locations and quite nice food - when it eventually arrives. And watch you card when it comes to paying. I'll stay away in future - though tourists seem to want to go there.

We stepped in whilst visiting the famous gardens with 82 year old mother in law. The restaurant has a distinct African theme. The seating on the chairs inside is fairly uncomfortable as it is designed for the look and not for comfort. The menu has a selection of interesting items - we tried the crocodile pies and ostrich salad. It... More

Our table of 20 was pretty much neglected - it was difficult to get hold of a waiter and not many had their faces painted because this was not offered to everyone. At the price per head, the food was not acceptable. "Sautéed" vegetables were not - just boiled for an hour. "Beef dombolo" and "chicken and date tagine" didn't... More
