We were recommended by the hosts of The Vineyard Country House to have dinner there.If you prepared for the long drive out there.
What a great experience. From the moment we stepped in, where we were welcomed by our German host with gusto.
Service was superb and then the courses began.
Starters to die for , followed by the other courses which all had great responses from the rest of the table. I will certainly be back again and try some of the other tantilizing dishes.

Mo & Rose at Soekershof, between Robertson and Ashton on Route 62 comprises a stylish contemporary restaurant with a guest house currently under expansion, owned by a young dynamic European couple (German & Italian), overlooking exotic succulent gardens with indoor and outdoor seating. A Belgian influence in the kitchen, and an excellent manager, very good wine list and creatively good food combine to make this a welcome addition to this scenic region. We all agreed it was a fresh delightful venue to which we will return and well worth seeking out.

Ma and Rose have been open for little more than a year. We visited on a wintery evening for dinner. The previous evening we had dinner at Reuben's at the Robertson Small Hotel (see my review there). Axel, the proprietor was in the venue and looked after things, and that's where the difference comes between the previous evening's disappointment and our great dinner at Mo's: The menu is limited but covers all bases. A lot of effort goes into the concept and preparation and it shows: The bisque of seafood was really that and my chorizo stuffed calamari was just perfect. The ladies relished their aubergine souffle. One could taste the hours that the stuffed lamb shank spent cooking slowly; it arrived in a small pot. The double of pork was perfect too. For desert we asked Axel to make up a plate of a mixture of all deserts. The mousse au chocolat was creamy and decadent, the parfait perfectly melting on our tongues and the tiramisu contested. Protions are good, bordering on generous, you won't leave hungry. Pricing is upmarket for the food and justified. The wine list is small and in the majority sourced out of the Breede River Valley; it is very reasonably priced. Belying Axel's German origins, a number of gourmet beers are available, too. All in all a very satisfying evening.

My parents took myself and my fiance out to dinner to Mo and Rose for my birthday in March as we were visiting from London and had heard really good reviews about the restaurant from locals.

The location, scenery, atmosphere, grounds, staff, food, wine - absolutely faultless! We each had a 3 course meal - every single dish was pure perfection. As a result we have decided to fly back to South Africa to get married at Mo and Rose in March 2014! To date Monika (the owner) has been nothing but helpful and accomodating, going above and beyond to assist us and make this the day of our dreams.

You would be silly to pass up an opportunity to eat or stay at Mo and Rose. We can't wait to show it off to our friends and family in March next year!
