Top class visitor restaurant. Free wifi with password. Lovely terrace, comfortable restaurant. Good service, fairly priced cocktails (plenty of choice). We did not eat but the menu looked interesting and I would do so next time confident that it will not disappoint.

Fantastic buffet breakfast. Chef on duty went out of his way to accommodate our wheat free dietary restrictions.

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!
