We thoroughly enjoyed our lunchtime treat here. Delicious food prepared by one of the sisters, whilst Mum (an artists whose lovely works were displayed on the walls) ran "front of house". Not surprisingly it was busy, so pre book. A lovely 30 minute drive from Hermanus centre.

Moggs is set in beautiful surroundings, not over-manicured. The service was good, the pork belly amazing as was the dark chocolate cake - light and delicious. Thai fish cakes also a winner. Good vibe. Will be back !

Came here on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews and the reality was SO much better than I could have hoped for. The food was superb, the ambience relaxed and unpretentious, and the service attentive but discreet. Absolutely perfection. Well done.

It was suberbly presented with fresh flowers, crispy skin and bacon. It was delicious and I ate every morsel. My husband had the Thai style fish and he said... More

Went here for Granny's 80th birthday celebrations. There were 19 of us in the party and they managed well with all of us including the four children. The service was good though at times slightly patronising...never mind we were a big group and it all ran smoothly. Great country location, lots for the kids to do. Good hearty food. Great... More
