“Solid and reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We always go to Mo's for one dinner whenever we are in Knysna. Over the years it has changed hands and undergone a number of transformations, but one thing is consistent - good hearty fare. We loved the pork belly and the onion rings are some of the best we have ever tasted. We will be back (again...)!

The best food and entertainment in Knysna! Food was really great there - service excellent and a lot of entertainment. Please Mo's - can smoking be banned in the bar area???? Be nice... send the smokers outside!

“Pork Belly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

I have had the BEST pork belly strips that I have ever had! Mo's on Rex, I don't know how you cooked them (apparently a three-stage process), but they were succulent, juicy (and not fatty) and had the best crackly bits! I will be 'so-back' for more! ... from a Knysna local – about to become more local at Mo's. Well done.

“DELECTABLE - DELICIOUS - DEVINE .....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

On a recent visit to this hidden little secret of Knysna - I was blown out of my mind with the delicious, succulent, well prepared and beautifully presented melt in the mouth Lamb Shank with all the trimmings in place. We were greeted by friendly and efficient personnel, making sure we were well looked after at all times.
A must for everyone

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Mandy and I ate at Mo's in June 2014 whilst staying at Knysna. It may be a bit off the beaten track but it is well worth the effort of finding. We both had the lamb shank and it was absolutely superb!

After our meal the landlady / owner took the time and effort to have a long chat with us. She was very friendly and made us both feel extremely welcome. It is so nice to be valued as customers and it was very much appreciated.

A superb meal in a great restaurant with extremely friendly staff - highly recommended.
