How disappointing

Myoga has always been one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town. No more. In spite of being warned by friends that standards had declined, we decided that possibly they had just been unlucky. Sadly, we were mistaken. Amateurish service, overcooked food, and a total lack of management. All this... read more

My family went for Sunday lunch buffet in the beautiful fine dining restaurant! The food is "different" (combinations you wouldn't normally think of) but it is really good!! The dessert.. the best peppermint tart I've had! The gardens are absolutely beautiful to walk through! Lovely experience!

Myoga comes very close to being a great dining experience but in the end it perhaps is trying just a little too hard. The restaurant is situated in the lovely Vineyard Hotel and as I arrived for dinner with my three companions at seven the fairly large venue with its central open kitchen was already busy. We all ordered the... More

Myoga gave me by far one of the best food experiences I have had in my life. The service was good, friendly and knowledgable staff, amazing food and especially with the wine paring the seven course menu was incredible. Absolutely value for money!

After reading all the reviews I was extremely confident that I had made the right choice by picking Myoga for our Anniversary. The ambiance and service were top class, and the tasting menu was well thought out. We could easily find a meal in each section which we were excited by, and on arrival, each time the presentation would be... More

We were four persons celebrating a birthday on the 25th of February. We tried thetasting menu with seven courses. The food was excellent, the wines super and the combination better than any other place I have tried in Cape Town. The sommelier knows what he is talking about and the service in form of Lynette could not be better.The only... More

Struggled to find exactly what I was looking for as an anniversary dinner, so decided to go back to Myoga. No disappointments, the food, the service the ambience and the wine all hit the target and we had a stunning evening. Settled on the 7 course with wine, make sure you are not in a rush so you can have... More

fine dining at the Vineyard Hotel. Formal but relaxed. We opted for the 7-course tasting menu. Served very delicate variety of breads. The courses tiny and tasty and my favorite being the pork belly ( i could eat many). By course 6 we were just too full to move....and there was a surprise last course no8. I will be back.

Beautiful setting in Vineyard Hotel, Newlands. Our party was a family group of 5. The first problem is that there are 2 menus , the regular menu and the tasting 7 course menu. If some of the party want the tasting menu then all must choose that menu. This was too much food for 2 of our party but they... More

We ate here twice during our recent stay at the Vineyard Hotel, having visited this restaurant several times on previous trips to South Africa. Sadly, we found the quality of both the food and the service to have deteriorated. While the food was ok, it did not live up to the 'fine dining' promises and in our opinion was no... More
