Visited Moyo in Kirstenbosch. The service was shocking. We had to request menus. Then we had to get up and ask for a waiter to take our drinks and food order. Our food took over an hour to get to us. Very disappointed.

Good for children. Good food options for kids, and the complimentary face paints were a hit. Would recommend. The food was tasty and filling. Friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful gardens.

Food was good, really enjoyed my chicken burger and homemade bun. Bit overprice but to be expected. Service was friendly but a bit slow, /.in his defense it was busy though.

I was shocked at how tasty the food was. I definitely recommend if visiting the gardens to stop by here for lunch or dinner. Drinks were good too. Casual and nice environment.

The restaurant is super different, inside the botanical garden. The food was incredible and they have a Amarula shot very good.

So just wondering why you did not respond last year when I wrote the review. Just been to Kirstenbosch again and avoided Moyo- tried the Tea garden place instead!
