Cosy and delicious food

Up till now, I have only been here in the summer and in the garden for a light lunch. Always heard excellent reports and wow! they lived up to them. The food, ambience and wine list was just superb. I had a chicken baked dish, which can often be dry but it was tender, tasty and moist. Well done -... read more

My father and I went to Moggs and sat in small yet delightful room with a fire burning. We received some water then were made to wait another 40 minutes before we could order a drink. Once we complained all the staff and owners came to apologise, the rest of the meal was full of over compensation for the bad... More

Our 4th visit to this country restaurant and we were as impressed with the food, service and ambiance as we were the first time we visited. Honest, homely, delicious food each time. The ladies work extremely hard in the kitchen to serve a full restaurant. The menu is not over complicated, but still has something to suit everyone's taste. When... More

Four of us were driving the Hermanus Wine Route. A winery owner recommended Moggs for a good lunch. We were delighted with the small restaurant complete with free range chooks, lavender garden, veggie patch and lake. Inside, a roaring fire and tasty food, including beef and lamb kidney pie! We also had excellent soup and thick fillets of fresh fish.... More

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 one of the best salads...
