I was taken to the venue by Durbanites...love the venue, however the service was awful. Spoiled the experience. The loudest individuals in the venue were the staff! They did not seem at all interested. Would I return...probably not.

This place came highly recommended by locals. I went with three other expats while in joburg where we all shared our different dishes and the general consensus was that the atmosphere was nice and the presentation too but that was about it. You really could not go and you'll miss nothing at all. Trust me...

Had to phone the reservation line to get service to my table. They do not care at all about patrons and management ( as per western world standards) is non existent. Staff obviously have no leadership. Very sad because its a beyond amazing location. Poor and inexcusable ... ultra low standards.

I had the ostrich and it was the best I've eaten in my two-week stay in South Africa. Staff was nice and friendly.

Came knowing that its high season so we were not in any rush. It took 45 min for our drink to make it to our table & after asking our waitress 3 times when our food was coming, only 1 of our plates arrived nearly an hour & a half later. Worst service!!! No explanation, no apologies... Think twice before... More

I found it overpriced -we had snacks and drinks -they were mediocre . Service was slow but the view and chilled atmosphere compensated for this .

The location is great, especially the bar on the pier! The vibe is a bit generic and catering mainly for tourists, but it's definitely worthwhile going for a drink or lunch!

Very disappointed- Moyo has a good reputation, but this location is trading on the name and the location. Service was slow (last meal delivered well after other parties had finished eating). Had to go and find the waitress to get drinks, eggs Benedict had almost no holandaise, and the price represented a premium experience that we did not get to... More
