World class without pretention. Exhibition kitchen, stellar ambiance, excellent service again without pretense.. Check out the tasting menu with sa wine with each course. Just take the elevator down from your room through the gardens around the pool. A lot of locals call this place their favorite and keep coming back. Great diversity local/international menu at this restaurant.

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant, I came with great expectations but unfortunately they were not met. The menu was not adequately explained, there was confusion about my main course choice - I thought I was ordering Tempura prawns but in fact it was a fish dish, (unexplained). The fish was over cooked as were the 2 tiny prawns... More

We had reason to celebrate and my wife and I took her parents to Myoga for lunch. I had quail for starters. Very tasty, but especially the main (I had a chocolate and coffee infused shortrib) and dessert (we all took the chocolate and salted caramel one) were superb. The food was presented beautiful. The tastes were creative, rich, vibrant... More

We hadn't been back in a few years for fear of ruining our first brilliant experience then but this was just as amazing - attention to detail, service, menu choice, ambience. Four of us had quite different choices from the seven course meal and no one had a single course that wasn't adventurous and exciting. Loved the Full Circle detail... More

My wife and I recently ate there again after break of 2 weeks, and will definitely be back. Great food, attentive staff, and the most wonderful view of Table Mountain, whilst dining. The food is exciting and always a pleasure to eat. Give it a try next time you are in the City

Beautiful setting, opulent restaurant and food that did not fail to impress. From starters, mains to desert every dish was sensational. The service was excellent. Compliments to the chef. Definitely a must for fine dining.

I have dined at Myoga previously and took up an offer on Groupon. I was disappointed that there was another menu for Groupon diners. When I enquired about this I was told by the owner that I shouldn't buy the voucher and that I could complain to anybody else but not him. Not the response I was expecting.

Each year we return to this restaurant and each year we leave as very satisfied customers! The service is excellent and attentive (not sure how other diners who have published reviews could say otherwise). We always do the 7 course meal which is a bargain given the quality of the food. Quantities are appropriately small for 7 course meals but... More

If you enjoy fine dining then this is the place to be. I have previously enjoyed lunch here but dinner did not match up to that expectation and experience. The waiter was poorly trained so he failed to read his audience which included people from the cape flats and we love our food in abundance. If you are hungry then... More
