Moyo fountains has gine steadily downhill from being a great place to take overseas guests to a place with badly strained staff, slow service and very ordinary food, overpriced for the quality. I think that poor patronage has probably played a role.

This might be OK for a first time foreign visitor but for someone who lives in Pretoria, there are better places for exotic food. My wife and I were in a large group for a birthday party and the waiters/esses battled to keep up, although are friendly. The live musician was authentic and the staff very entertaining, although a lower volume on the amplifier would have been appreciated. My wife's North African salad did not match up to the quality we expected as we have eaten in Morocco & Algeria and know what the real thing is like. There was no snoek pate although it was on the menu. The oily dressing for my steak salad lacked the general the sort of broad range of flavour I was looking forward to but the portion was adequate. The desert was OK, and other people on the table got a reasonable steak. However, the African experience was exemplified by the time for the main course to arrive - at least 45 minutes!The fire in the room was very welcome, but towards the end of the evening, it got quite smokey which detracted from the atmosphere. The ambience is reasonable and the staff very entertaining. The wine list is extensive and some might find expensive. The menu is quite broad, but I would rather try a more specialised upmarket eatery for the best quality food.This is not the sort of place you would come for a romantic evening although the setting is lovely when coming to the Groenkloof Nature Reserve.

One of the worst restaurants in Pretoria and maybe South Africa! We were there with a group of friends and everything we ordered was awful. I hope I'm not sick tomorrow. We spoke to the manager and he only nodded his head and didn't offer any discounts.
The desert was also horrible.

And they also charged us more per plate than originally quoted!

Dear Demerch
My apologies for the late reply to your review, moyo fountains was only recently registered on trip advisor and had only made me the administrator of the account today.
My most sincere apologies for your less than satisfactory moyo experience.
I would truly appreciate it if you could send me your contact number or email adress as I would like to get more detail about the meals order and manager on duty. Once I have all the information I will investigate further. We appreciate constructive feedback from our customers and take complaints seriously.
I am the marketing manager for the group and will ensure that corrective steps are taken .
please email your details to bianca@moyo.co.za
