We had a fantastic meal. Ordered the beetroot starter and Thai fish cakes. Really tasty and delicious. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. This is a fantastic setting, especially in good weather when you can sit outside.

Hearty country cooking in a fabulous setting. The lamb shank was wonderfully tasty as were the Thai Fish Cakes. The service was efficient yet relaxed. The home baked bread they offer you is amazing but it would have been nice to have a little more. There is place outside for children to play and it is a restaurant which offers... More

Had trouble with hygiene and the service was slow, the lamb, though cooked so as to fall off the bone, had nothing special about it, the garnish used with both the carpaccio and lamb shank was too overwhelming for both dishes.

We ended up in Moggs by accident as we wanted to do the food pairing at the Creation Restaurant but it was fully booked. On the way back to Hermanus, we saw the sign for Moggs and decided to give it a go. And what a discovery it was: after driving about 3 km's on a dirt road we arrived... More

In our day of wine tasting we stopped at Moggs for lunch. A beautiful setting and wonderful homely feel. The food was beautifully presented and really flavoursome, in fact my favourite meal in a two week holiday. The place has an unhurried friendly feel and overlooks the country cottage gardens. If you eat here you won't want to continue with... More

Good location in the valley, down a bit of an unpaved road, but the reataurant itself is in a great spot. Very interesting menu, with some different combinations of food. Service was good, as was the food. Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

This well-known restaurant has been on top of our minds every time we visit Hermanus and the Hemel en Aarde Valley. Never a dull moment with them. Quality of food and... More

We were recommended Moggs by friends and were so grateful they did. The location is beautiful and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly from them moment you arrive. We opted for the day's specials - beetroot soup followed by kingklip fish cakes. The meal was outstanding- simple but with interesting flavours - especially the soup which had hints of chili and...

What an unbelievable location and then you add friendly service and amazing food. Had lunch here whilst on a wine tour in the valley and all I can say is that if you are in and around, please don't miss the opportunity
