We enjoyed a very tasty lunch here. The food was especially delicious, and of course the setting at the Vineyard Hotel is lovely.

We ate here last night as a family of 4 adults. We booked it based on the reviews on trip adviser and we were not disappointed. We had the 7 course tasting menu which was amazing. We all enjoyed every course. We didn't have the wine pairing as we felt 7 glasses would be too much so we ordered a... More

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

How can one even begin to respond to such praise except to say thank you. To be told that our restaurant was the best you have eaten in is probably the biggest compliment and what every restaurateur strives for. It will be our pleasure to welcome you back when next in Cape Town. Kind regards Mike Bassett 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

Sometimes it can be quite tricky to manage large tables especially with our tasting menu and to see that we achieved that is an indication that we are reaching our goals. Thank you for your generous review I will certainly convey your message to the staff and management. Kind regards Mike Bassett 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.
