This restaurant is well situated with a great view of Table Mountain. The menu is local and the service excellent. A good place to eat after a morning visit to Kirstenbosch Gardens.

We started our visit to the Kirstenbosch with breakfast here at one of the outside tables. The food was very good and the friendly service excellent. Add to this a beautiful view over the gardens and a promise of what was to come,

Good on Moyo for coming up with a pensioner special day. The tope restaurant does not offer meals. Fish and chips excellent value coffee good. Very hot even under the trees. Water... More

Nice venue let down by very dirty toilets. The gravy on the filet steak was far too bitter which ruined the steak. Steaks also overcooked for what was requested. The bread and humus starter was bland with the bread to humus ratio biased towards the bread. We visited on a very quiet day but still the service was slow.

Dropped in for an impromptu lunch, had some delicious food, well seasoned and put together - we both had something "light" but be warned, there seem to be no small portions in this place!! Given the location, is not bad value at all. It is a lovely thing to be able to wonder around the gardens afterwards.
