“Wonderful food in a wonderful setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This very rural restaurant is worth the effort of driving the 15km from Hermanus. The food is exquisite and interesting cuisine delightfully presented. We made 2 visits here and it made for a perfect final day lunch venue before returning to the cold of Europe! We will definitely be back when we next visit Hermanus.

“Limited hours but worth the effort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Not easy to find but do make the effort. Only open from 12:30 to 14:00 and not every day but we turned up after hours and the staff stayed on to provide a memorable experience. The Hermanus region is blessed with superb eating choices but do try to get to Moggs it is unique and you will not regret the extra effort.

“Never had a bad meal after at least thirty visits.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

If I was traveling in France and Italy and found a place like Moggs I would probably go back to it almost everyday. I love the way every item on the menu is carefully explained and the food matches the description. Staff and especially owners very friendly.
The drive is not difficult and getting easier.

“Splendid Way to spend a Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We have just enjoyed a wonderful meal at Moggs where the food is consistently first class with interesting and different menu choices. The service is friendly and the surroundings amazing. it is a bumpy drive up the mountain but well worth the effort!
