Fantastic country dining

We sat outside on Sunday and loved the experience - superb food, beautiful views, friendly and efficient service, great wine. Moggs is perfect for a long lazy lunch or for a family affair as there is a lot of space in the garden for kiddies to play away from the tables. The beetroot salad was... read more

We took our parents to this lovely farmhouse kitchen. The beetroot salad and mushroom ravioli Were excellent. Food came well presented. Attentive staff and great service. It was very relaxing sitting outside enjoying the views and farm life feel. We had been out to the kitchen earlier in the week to look at the venue, it was cold and we... More

Varied and interesting menu.Food well prepared and well presented.This restaurant has been operating for many years and is a credit to Hermanus which is poorly served by very mediocre and expensive eateries.To be recommended

Spent the whole year looking forward to lunch, been several times. Limited menu and they seem to have lost their sparkle. Big tent in front of restaurant spoils it. Feel they are trying to expand too fast. Recommended to friends who went independently and had a poor meal. Shame.

We have been to this restaurant many times over the years and it just keeps getting better. It is still more or less the same in size although there is now a large tent for extra outside seating. We went on a Wednesday and it was packed. Thankfully we had booked as quite a few people were turned away and... More
