Visit the cocktail venue on the pier. Except what is on offer and you would not be disappointed -do not be insistant or difficult! Enjoy the fact that you are having drinks some distance from the beach above the waves. The wind could be rather strong at times.

Beautiful views the boardwalk is right outside. Exquisite food! It was hard to pick one meal. I would recommend going with an empty tummy! Dancers were present throughout dinner and a wonderful women came by to do a bit of face painting.

Moyo's menu is all over the place and just doesn't marry well. Its an excuse for not being able to visit other African countries due to unrest, safety, etc. The food sounds exciting when you read the menu, however the delivery is disappointing. I had a Maputo spatch cock chicken for dinner, which was probably prepared for lunch and not... More

The menu offers but a few dishes, but they're all good. If you're really hungry, you better order two items. The place is located at the end of a bridge reaching into the ocean, such that you can sit above the shore while eating and watch surfers and the beach.

A plastic representation of an African restaurant. Touristy, extremely expensive and not particularly great service. Great views from the end of the pier and fairly average cocktail and drink prices considering the location.

This restaurant offers great choices of local specialties in addition to a very friendly staff. I got a flower painted on my cheek, while waiting for my food. The prices are very affordable, the 3 Bean Curry Potjie highly recommendable - at only 89 Ran. We visited twice and enjoyed the good service and great food. Our waiter then recommended... More

We visited the Moyo bar at the sea bridge at a Friday evening. The staff was really friendly and the face painting is a great idea. And hey the view ... amazing! Probably the best place for a drink in Durban. Unfortunately we can not highly recommend the food at the BAR (restaurant might be different). It was ok but... More

We just popped in for a drink .the location of Moyo on the pier us absolutely fantastic,but,boy,do they need to clean it up. Sitting there ,I felt like it needed to be put in a washing machine. Sure the sea causes damage,but that's the downside of being at that location.i actually couldn't sit there too long as the drain smell... More
