Last time I was here I had a less than brilliant experience. Staying in the hotel on a wet and windy evening we decided to give Myoga another try. The tasting menu had just been refreshed and had a number of big flavored dishes to try. At R295 per person it is exceptionally good value. Generally the food was of... More

I went to Myoga last night for dinner to test the new 7 course menu and wow Mike Basset has done it again. I love the new menu. Its diverse and different. Who would have thought a egg dish at a fine dinning restaurant could be so amazing. The whole menu would make you drool. The only complaint i have... More

My husband and I had dinner at Myoga. We had the seven course tasting menu with paired wines. The meal was quite honestly one of the best we have ever had anywhere in the world. The food was fabulous. Everything was so tasty and the presentation was excellent. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. South African wines were... More

We booked for a birthday( of which the restaurant was informed upon booking). The directions for parking is very contrived and no effort is taken to escort patron to the correct restaurant even after approaching reception(they could not have been less interested; and simply pointed). The welcome was very average and even though we had informed them that it was... More

Three of us ate here on a recommendation from a (full) fellow restaurant. I have eaten at quite a few Michelin starred places, and in all honesty, this beat quite a few of them. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings, and with wonderful service and simply incredible food, couldn't fault it. In Europe you'd pay 3-4 times this... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. It’s wonderful to hear that a fellow restaurant has recommended us. We love to be complimented especially against Michelin rated restaurants, there is no higher praise. We strive to keep our menus exciting and at a price that people can afford. We hope you get the chance to visit again.... More

We had a three course lunch at the restaurant on Saturday. The setting is beautiful, it was a hot sunny day and we opted to eat outside with the view onto the gardens and the mountains, was very tranquil. The service for our meal could not be faulted, our waiter was friendly, present and professional. The wine list is great... More

Had a dinner with work colleagues here recently, and found it below par for the very high ratings that others give it. We were under a time constraint so did not have the tasting menu which others state is very good - one colleague said he thought it was served quite slowly from past experience. If one goes here and... More
