“So little options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Menu variety has steadily been on the decrease and rates on the increase. Moyos Stellenbosch started off with lovely varieties in terms of exotic cuisine. Now instead you pay so much for what is no longer an authentic Cape experience. I have paid less at an alternate wine route venue where so much more was on offer and the food was TOP notch at other venue. Disappointing experience for me and my 11 guests on particular occassion.

“Fun place for dinner with local food and music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We wanted to try local food and not many places offer that with music and some dances. The restaurant is on a huge Wine Estate that was not our priority and only went there to try the food. They have tree houses where you can have dinner but be aware that you have to climb up. It looked fun but better closer to the stage to enjoy the music. It's very touristic, huge and a bit cold but I'll say go for it!
We enjoyed the breads, salads, dips and main dishes. My husband tried the game and he liked it and I had chicken, fish and calamari that were very good. Desert was average. The best part the friendly staff and the music!! Also they paint your faces too and our waiter did a very unique design on my face!! They have a shop where you can find unique local crafts and souvenirs.
It was a very different experience being in the wine country...well is the only one...

“The Treehouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The food is authentic African. First time eating Springbok and Osterich. The way it was cooked was yummy. Eating while dining in the treehouse was wonderful. The homemade breads were abundant and everything was good. It's easy to overeat. The drive to this location is beautiful and a nice escape from the city.

“Moya”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stopped at this winery and had lunch at Moya during our day trip to the winery. It was a good way to taste the local food and not have to afraid if you don't like it. It is a beautiful setting in wine country with outdoor and under roof seating. The staff was very friendly and glad to explain what you are trying. There are locals providing music. A bit touristy that was very informative.

“Much hype about nothing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

I have been invited to Moyo three times and each time the food has never impressed me. The first time my food was still frozen in the middle, the queues are too long and the service was disappointing.
