Having stayed regularly at the vineyard I inevitably find myself having dinner at Myoga, the independent in-house restaurant owned by Mike Bassett. Myoga offers what most most other hotel restaurants simply don't - the promise of a good value tasting menu of big-flavours. They regularly deliver but you can't help but think that they are cooking at the edge of... More

You have got to eat at this restaurant.......I only wish it was back in Scotland. I visited Mygoa with friends I was visited. They highly recommended it. ....I was not disappointed! We went for the 7 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Excellent service from beginning to end. Our host and waitress was outstanding. Incredible food....words can not describle how... More

I booked for a sizeable group of 13, mostly ordering the 7 course. More than value for money, the flavours, presentation and most of all the service was superb. I've been to the Vineyard previously, but not this restaurant, and am glad to say I would definitely recommend it. Management and staff deserve a pat on the back for maintaining... More

The final dinner of our 3 weeks trip to SA should be special so we have made reservations at Myoga. Reservations went very well - we´ve asked for a table at the windows and we´ve got it - nice. As so many before us we took the 7 course dinner with wine. What can I say: we were more than... More

We ordered a 7-course tasting that was out of this world, but reasonable in price. Excellent experience.

We were treated by clients at Myoga as a thank you dinner. Having lived in Cape Town and driving past the Vineyard Hotel on my way to work everyday, I have never actually been into the Hotel. And what a surprise my first visit was! The hotel and restaurant overlook a majestical, almost Japanese / zen like peaceful garden, with... More

From what I read in previous reviews, the Manager is not to keen in receiving constructive feedback, even though this is crucial for his business. Still, I'm going to give some valuable feedback even if they probably are not going to like it. Located about 20 minutes by car from Central CT, in a very beautiful area and specifically in... More

I have read your review and am more than happy to address any constructive criticism. You seem to be more annoyed at me than the restaurant so I will try to address your concerns as the service you received clearly created a bad experience. We will certainly be more vigilant in our daily meetings with our staff and try to... More

We really enjoyed the 7(!) course menu at Myoga. Every course is a gastronomical experience you won't lightly forget. Do not leave Cape Town without having dinner in this restaurant!

Good food, slow service and quite noisy near the kitchen. However a must if you are near the Vineyard Hotel where this is.

Thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed the food we strive to maintain high standards. With regard to the restaurant being noisy close to the kitchen we have an open plan setup so unfortunately some noise will occur, we do however only call out the necessary orders to enable the chefs to work efficiently. I was just wondering... More

But much better options out there. The seven course tasting menu is obviously brilliant value but we didn't have that which was a bad mistake as on at least one course they just double up on the tasting menu version. The fish on risotto was brilliant and perfect for a tasting menu but then having to eat exactly the same... More

I’m not really sure how to respond to this kind of petty criticism. With regards to the dish that you were served, as you say the risotto was brilliant, did you not take into consideration that ordering a dish from our a la carte menu would be bigger than a tasting portion, the tasting portion is in fact just a...
