We often visit Moggs when we are in Hermanus. The food is always great and the menu changes according to the season. In winter there is an indoor fireplace to keep you warm and in summer you can sit outside and enjoy the view. We have always experienced excellent service and meals.

I also ordered some wine that they served. It was a good choice of wine against the pork served. The only glitch was trying to find... More

I can't recommend Moggs highly enough. We booked for a large group of us (11 adults and 3 children) for lunch and ordered a range of different dishes, all of which were delicious. The desserts were so good that a few of us, myself included, ordered two (just couldn't let that lemon curd and passion fruit brûlée go untasted...)! We... More

We have been here Last year and have been very satisfied with food. This year it has been even better. The meals are freshly cooked with a Touch of a biological Trend. This year we had to stay Insider because of the Wind and it has a very friendly atmosphere inside. Strongly recommended. When you leave the Street into a... More

Outstanding flavones, surpassed expectations. Worth the wait, and definitely worth a return visit, despite several hyperactive children.

We went to Moggs on Saturday for lunch & it was great. The road has finally been completed so it was a quick drive up Hemel & Aarde to get there. Service is great, setting is beautiful - very rustic & laidback, amazing for kids. The duck was delicious, no complaints at all. We love this restaurant & will always... More

A drive up a very rough track brings you to this amazing gem. Welcome, ambience and food were all excellent, could have settled in and stayed for the day!
