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.

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

Sunday lunch was a pure pleasure. The hospitality and service was excellent, the setting comfortable and serene, the food delicious and beautifully presented and the various dogs and chickens offered plenty of entertainment.

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!

It was our day off from our little restaurant in a different village in the Overburg and we wanted to have the gasto experience we also seek to deliver. Mogg's kitchen hit the spot on all counts. Service, atmosphere, presentation and food all excellent. Well done guys. We will definitely be back and confidently recommend to others. It is without... More

I have had lunch at Moggs several times over the last eighteen months, in very different contexts - a large family group that included several small children under five years of age, a small group with friends, and a large group of friends and acquaintances. On every occasion the experience was a huge pleasure. The food is superb - absolutely... More

We were stunned at the beauty of the food here at Mogg's. Not at all what we were expecting to find - in the most positive way! Ambience: absolutely relaxed and beautiful and cozy. fire burning, pinecones overhead, chickens running about, mountains in view. Food was delightful, well priced and drinks were served in carafes, the house wine was perfect... More

Off the beaten track farm like setting, simple decor and an interesting and unusual menu. Service was excellent, good wine list from the area . Food quality was very good and the value for money was worth the visit on it's own. Definitely a recommendation if in the area

We had lunch there yesterday (11 pax); I had the venison and oxtail pie (delicious) with al dente vegetables. The others had pork belly (yes there was crackling too). The chocolate pudding served in a tea cup with ice-cream was .... memorable Excellent food, what a lovely place to have a restaurant.
