We spent a pleasant evening at Moya. Staff was lovely and attentive. I was particularly impressed by the beautiful fresh roses on the table, which is a real plus in my eyes. The food was presented nicely. I was, however, a little taken aback that I wasn't able to order their mushroom dumplings as a starter (since I didn't like... More

A friend from Eastern Europe suggested going to this place for his birthday having rated it before. When he called to ask if he could add two more people to the table, the owner refused and was quite unpleasant about it. So the two extra friends went home. Later, the owner called to say yes it was fine but it... More

moya_oxford, Owner at Moya, responded to this review

In fact your friend booked a table for Saturday for 6 people, so he wanted to add 4 last minute guests in all. We were fully booked before we opened and he rang after opening. He had seemed unsure of numbers so, just in case, I had kept a table free, especially for you, and joined it to yours. When... More

Moya is a small and tidy restaurant not too far from the cennter of town. This is a Slovakian menu and we were attracted by the Hungarian Goulash though I decided to order Turkey medallions instead. The Goulash had a slight red-pepper tinge to it which added a nice kick, and the Turkey was slightly browned with a light sauce.... More

We came here as a group of five on Saturday night. I ordered the pork and sauerkraut in creamy sauce. It sounds unusual, and it was, but perfectly blended flavours and a delicious result. Friendly staff, who genuinely want you to appreciate the food. Try this place before it gets to be part of the Oxford trend!

Never had Slovak food before and we thought it was delicious! Really tasty and well cooked with friendly service. The cocktail I had was also fantastic. Oxford restaurants can veer towards style over substance but this isn't one of them. We chose fairly traditional dishes and they were super filling. A great place for the colder weather - goulash, dumplings... More

Went here on a Wednesday night and unfortunately it was deserted--however it's a very interesting menu and a good place to go if you fancy something different. We had a bottle of Montepulciano which was excellent. I'd recommend the trip down St. Clements

I don't have too many words for this restaurant, only 'Amazing', 'Superb' and 'Fabolous'. You have to try... And I will again. Top day.

Been here a few times recently and the Slovakian food is delicious and the service is consistently excellent. The cocktails are excellent and the wine is reasonably priced. Always look forward to visiting.

Having decided to go for something different, we came on TripAdvisor to find somewhere in Oxford and came across Moya. We weren't quite sure what to expect but we were really, really happy with the results. The selection of food, seafood and meat, started and mains were all fantastic. Hot and tasty, fish cooked to perfection and sauces piquant without... More

I love this place. The food is great - the sea bass the best I have ever had (and often have it here, and it is always great). The food is Slovakia and really unusual but fabulous. Lovely staff. Great cocktails. Just love it.
