Visited on a Friday night when there was live music. The menu is not really suitable for lovers of fish and vegetarian options but well priced and supported by local clientele

We call ourselves regulars at Mo's but the last visit was not so great. We took guests to entertain but admittetly the pizzas we had were sub standard. I ordered my pizza and added pepperdews but the pizza that arrived did not feature pepperdews but anchovies..... The wine by the glas was cheap too, more like tinted water. This was food locals expect during season (that's why most locals don't eat out at that particular time) but the holidayAkers had left long ago. Were we served 'left overs'??? We'll give it another bash bit if it does not improve we'll have to find another restaurant :(

After a long day in the car driving for hours we were super hungry and had no idea where to go eat, after taking a drive we found Mo's, we were a little early and the kitchen wasn't open yet but the front of house gentleman allowed us to be seated at a table, having a drink first and then ordering our meals. The food was really really good , fresh and tasty! Warm atmosphere with some music playing - loved it!!

Mo's is a pub style restaurant which has excellent food and live music. The burgers are excellent - especially the ostrich. We visited Mo's for a second time during our stay in Knysna because we enjoyed it so much. Recommended!

Mu husband and I walked in on Mo's by pure chance. It was the 1st restaurant we saw on our way back to the hotel and we decided to stop for a quick lunch. The ground and the atmosphere was nice and pleasant. Our waitress was good. The food took a while but it could be because we were hungry and lacking patience. My husband got the gourmet burger and I got the half portion spare ribs. They were both delicious. The half-portion was so big that I had to take-away and got to have it again the next day. Yumm. I didn't think it was anything exceptional but it was good down to earth home cooking.

** Don't miss your chance to meet the world famous "Meat Smoker". He has a shop in Mo's and we ended up buying 6 packs of smoked meat.**
