We just popped in for a drink .the location of Moyo on the pier us absolutely fantastic,but,boy,do they need to clean it up. Sitting there ,I felt like it needed to be put in a washing machine. Sure the sea causes damage,but that's the downside of being at that location.i actually couldn't sit there too long as the drain smell... More

The place is very well located at the very beginning of the Golden Mile. The views over the see and the promenade are nice and the sea breeze makes it nice to be at a hot noon. However the service is slow, inaccurate and the food is very average - too spicy, basic and makes it feel as a place... More

So disappointed in this place. Service is terrible. Something so much better could be in this location and do a hell of a lot better then these guys do..

The place is in modern traditional revisited style, close to the beach and it's possible to have dinner with great view: Ocean and Golden Mile. Fish is great, wine is fantastic. Prices really convenient. Waiters careful and present.

I went to Moyo with my mom and my 4 year old in January, the restaurant was so run down and dirty! It is in serious need of a revamp! The waiter was really slow, AND the restaurant was very quite, I ordered the dukkah mushrooms on toast, it is supposed to come on toasted roosterkoek but they just served... More

Absolutely the best views you can find! I think Moyo is the only restaurant on the pier so it is worth the trek out, keep in mind it's in Durban South, so keep your wits about you for safety. Servers were friendly and fun, only gripe is that the cocktail I ordered was 3/4 ice which was slightly below expectations... More

Few times I visited Moyo , compared to other places in Durban I think offers the best package - the atmosphere is good, the crew is nice the,food is delicious it is clean and all feels right, of course a bit slow but I already guess this is something normal for South Africa.
