Lovely light lunch, shared a scrumptious salad with typical South African appetizer. Both were fantastic. Wine was delicious. The only reason I gave it a Very Good as opposed to an excellent was due to the fact the dining room was unbearably hot, which tainted the experience a bit. Overall quality of food and service was excellent.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2016

We visited the Gardens but it was becoming blistering hot. So we decided on an early lunch. This was a good move as later the restaurant became congested and people had to wait. We chose inside seating as it was cooler. The design was excellent with good views of the garden and good cross flow ventilation due to the high... More

Moyo serves good food that is reasonably priced for the location. It has a menu that serves South African food - a refreshing change from so much of Cape Town that is European-based. On the day I visited, service was slow - I fear the order was lost for a while. Apologies were forthcoming and the food was worth the... More

Family wanted to do this so as to experience a wider range of foods. We booked for the Friday night experience (usually not open for evening trade). Neil showed us around and enthusiastically explained what each of the options was. Edith waited the table. The two of them were superb. The food was great too, with dishes I had not... More

We chose this very nicely located restaurant for an early supper, before they close at 6pm and had a nice table on the terrace. One of the drinks asked for was iced tea without added sugar but just after the waiter opened the can he looked at it and said it had rather a lot of sugar in it -... More

We stopped at Moyo for coffee and milkshakes after a nice walk in the botanical garden. Everything took forever and the milkeshakes had such a strong artificial flavour not even the kids wanted to finish theirs. On the pricey side concidering the poor quality.

We visited Kirstenbosch Gardens in January and were blown away by its beauty! It is absolutely pristine! Surrounded by mountains, it's breathtaking! In amongst the gardens is Moyo, it's a fabulous place, sitting outside is recommended so you can see the views uninterrupted. We had the Avo on rye bread which was absolutely delicious and huge!! Will definitely be visiting... More

Not being a fan of gardens it was important to feed my husband before we started. We had a super lunch, sadly the outside seating was full, but the interior is nicely done. Good service and great food
