We were staying in Oxford and fancied a different cuisine so thought we would try Moya. We were so pleased we did; the food was lovely and the staff were attentive, polite and friendly. The fish cake and segedin were particularly tasty!

We recently had dinner at Moya after looking online at the reviews and the interesting looking menu. As a vegetarian it was refreshing to see something different on the menu its just a shame the vegetarian goulash didn't live up to expectations. It was just a watery vegetable soup with "dumplings" what we know as pasta. To be fair the... More

Me and my boyfriend decided to go to Oxford for a date night and i am so happy we did because we found Moya. Lovingly prepared wholesome meals and sumptuous cocktails. No matter how busy the restaurant was (we went on a Saturday night so it was full by 20:00) the waiters were attentive throughout our meal. They were rushed... More

I cannot rate the food at Moya, because we did not get to eat there. I can, however, rate our experience of dealing with the place. We were on a one night stop over in Oxford, and Moya looked, on Trip Advisor, to be unusual and good. So we called them at 18:15 to tell them we would be there... More

Naturally we prefer customers to ring and request a booking, and most do (although usually days ahead rather than minutes). As well as answering any queries, this allows us (and all restaurants) to adjust and space out arrival times to optimise the service we give everyone. As you say, though, you rang to tell us when you were coming, not... More

Cant believe we have never visited this restaurant right on our doorstep. From the moment we arrived we were made so welcome, staff are really friendly and explain courses if you are not sure. I had the duck which was lovely, but i was very jealous that my husbands goulash was amazing. I for sure will be having that next... More

My Girlfriend brought me here for my 1st day of 30th b'day (beiing born on 29th of feb got to have 2 birthdays:) ) and what a treat that was. Dining out 2/3 times a week can get bit stale so finding a restaurant that makes me join tripadvisor to rave about it is hands down accomplishment to both my... More

Two very hearty dishes, pork shank and leg of rabbit. Both oven baked on tasty bed of cabbage. Served with sauté potatoes quatered in their jackets. Spot on for the cold winter night. But I was looking around for evidence of this Eastern European land. It does not help if the clientele are all folk talking loudly in their Oxford... More

Interesting question; I am not sure why you did n't ask us when you were in Moya? Hearty? Pork shank and rabbit (any game, indeed)? Tasty cabbage and potatoes? Typical of Slovakia indeed. Your dessert, Bublanina, a light batter cake made throughout the region to use the surfeit of fresh fruits that grow in large gardens or are picked in... More
