“Beautiful setting but unsatisfactory food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014

We went for lunch with family on a Saturday. We were very impressed by the beautiful garden and fantastic restaurant. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive and the wine was very good. The menu was impressive and we were excited about our food. It was beautifully presented but really very disappointing. The tuna carpaccio was almost completely tasteless except for the unpleasantly large chunks of salt. The goats cheese parcels were good but soggy and very oily. For mains the pork belly was tough and covered in a crust that was bitter and burnt tasting and an equally burnt tasting 'jus'- not possible to discern the promised chili and ginger at all. The kudu loin was well cooked but covered with the same unappetizing crust. All the food was excessively salty. While the menu certainly has potential and presentation is good it feels like it is all just trying a little too hard to be 'haute cuisine' rather than getting the basics right and doing justice to the ingredients.

“a small paradise off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

i stayed at Mo & Ro earlier this year, and was lovely.The staff were eager to help, and the food was delightful. The rooms were lovely and the gardens a real treat. The gentleman in charge of the gardens has an imagination of note, and after he has explained things you can see what he is trying to achieve in the garden. there are other treasures down the roads, as well as lovely towns near by to go and explore.

“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I was very pleasantly surprised at Mo and Rose, as I never expected to find a place of this standard in Robertson! I was taken with friends for dinner, and they ordered all the different wines to go with our food choices. The manager was extremely attentive, the service excellent, great wine list and the food divine. What more can I say?

“It wasnt a good night”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The Roast Duck on the menu was the first choice for 2 in our group. Nothing prepared them for the excessively salty dish which the owner rudely defended as having being prepared that way. When asked why it wasnt shown as such on the menu, he was quite offish and not really interested in a complaint.
Its a pity as he spoilt the evening for the rest of the table
