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.

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!

A beautiful reataurant with wonderful views over the Hemel en Arrde Valley. situated in the midst of a magical wine growing area, this restaurant specialises in seasonal food with an original and creative twist. New dishes are added weekely as seasons change, the choice is around 5 options per courese and is impossible to make as each dish is special in its own right. So if you like wonderful seasonal food, imaginatively cooked and in a heavenly environment. personal focus from this family run reataurant and a passion and pride from the staff, this a lunch place that can't be missed on any visit to Hermanus or their wine growing area.

Situated in the middle of nowhere, you will have to go some 12 kilometers from Hermanus. A cozy old small farmhouse with a veranda and lawn/playground in front. The place has been run for some twenty years by a lady and her daughter. The menu was written on a blackboard. I ordered what I thought was a main dish and got a salad. On our table a fillet steak was ordered, despite the fact that the price was higher than central Hermanus. When it arrived it was very small piece, estimated to max 100gr. Normally you should expect the double. There was only one desert available, ice cream. When it came it was grainy and full of ice pieces, which means that it had gone out and in the freezer several times. For this salad lunch we paid more than we paid for a seafood meal in center Hermanus. I can not recommend this place, it really seems it has outlived it's reputation. It is just not worth the trip !
