Popped in for a snack when the Restuarant was fully booked and pleasantly surprised when offered a seat at the bar. Had the carpaccio and the Calamari salad. Both extraordinary and so very delicious. In the midst of the very busy season everyone was delightful Always amazing home made bread. Thanks Julia, Jenny, Jozi, Tyler , Farrah and staff for... More

Had a lovely lunch at this beautiful family run country house restaurant. A small menu which guarantees fresh ingredients and attention to detail. I had the pork belly with mustard mash. 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

We had a fantastic meal. Ordered the beetroot starter and Thai fish cakes. Really tasty and delicious. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. This is a fantastic setting, especially in good weather when you can sit outside.

Hearty country cooking in a fabulous setting. The lamb shank was wonderfully tasty as were the Thai Fish Cakes. The service was efficient yet relaxed. The home baked bread they offer you is amazing but it would have been nice to have a little more. There is place outside for children to play and it is a restaurant which offers... More

Had trouble with hygiene and the service was slow, the lamb, though cooked so as to fall off the bone, had nothing special about it, the garnish used with both the carpaccio and lamb shank was too overwhelming for both dishes.

We ended up in Moggs by accident as we wanted to do the food pairing at the Creation Restaurant but it was fully booked. On the way back to Hermanus, we saw the sign for Moggs and decided to give it a go. And what a discovery it was: after driving about 3 km's on a dirt road we arrived... More

In our day of wine tasting we stopped at Moggs for lunch. A beautiful setting and wonderful homely feel. The food was beautifully presented and really flavoursome, in fact my favourite meal in a two week holiday. The place has an unhurried friendly feel and overlooks the country cottage gardens. If you eat here you won't want to continue with... More
