The staff is well organized. Friendly and good customer service. The rest rooms have single cubicles, one for men and one for ladies and this results in ques to use them.

This was my first time going to South Africa, but everyone one of my Uber drivers told me I needed to go to Moyo to have some authentic South African food. When I arrived, I was not disappointed. Not only were the views fantastic, but the food was so much better than I even expected.I had a prawn curry dish that had one of the richest, nicest flavors I have ever had. But somehow, that wasn't even the best part.Believe it or not, they add a bit of a secret spice to their rice that made it taste super exotic and phenomenally good. I was really, really impressed.

There are only a few of these left, one recently shut, please support them, they are an awesome African themed restaurant whit some awesome food of a pan African nature. The food is amazing, really decent portions and nothing fancy just classic and well cooked.The morrocan flat bread, calamari and veggy tagine options are delicious and that maybe the place itself or the chef, either way for me it's fantasia.The place itself is an artisan heaven with lilly/jellyfish lamps and modern and African art, it's really quite hard to describe but somewhere between hobbit and Gaudi...There is a gift shop below with a small selection of krafty bits and an amazing florists with some incredible flower selections.I love this place, its in Zoo Park so looks onto the lake next to the jungle gym.Only Downside is service is slow but I love the lay back and chill.

Lovely open air, friendly staff. Had a great work breakaway there. Food a little pricey but good quality and the airy garden vibes are both tranquil and lend themselves to privacy.

Came for brunch on a Monday morning when it wasn't busy at all. So incredibly impressed by this entire restaurant. Easily one of the most beautiful restaurants I've ever been in. The ambiance that starts inside and travels to the outdoors to a scenic lake and peaceful zen-like vibe. Even their restrooms are awesome! Did I mention the food is phenomenal? Portions are generous and delicious! Our server was excellent and attentive. Can't say enough great things, would love to come back some day. More...

You can taste traditional South African food.The location and the scenery are the best, which makes me feel like I came to a restaurant in the resort.When you go out of the restaurant there is a lake and you can enjoy bird watching.There is also a souvenir shop and you can purchase souvenirs from Africa.

Always a pleasure coming here... Really well designed space... It's feels like how I'd imagine eauropeans imagine the African Dining experience to be. .. Outdoors, shady with the sun and water a short distance away.Complimentary bread is delicious... The food is okay... I think my tongue is picky... I didn't know, I realise this through these reviews. But the food is tasty enough to not cause regret. Overall good vibe and energy, it must be all the occult looking wooden carved statues, there's an overpriced gift shop (judging from the prices, the target market is tourists) with beautiful art and artefacts.There is a live music stage... And when you're lucky you might get some grooves... Mostly one dimension "sound of Africa" but there are surprises every now and again... I've caught an afro Cuban singing, guitar playing Velaphi and his band of musos... Worthwhile experience, all in all... But I wonder about the who the owners are, and if there are any Africans involved judging by the amount of what can be termed "cultural appropriation" in this southern Africa... Late Lunch with a bit of post colonial politics. More...

This place is one hec of a south African experience. Both morning breakfast, and evening lounging with friends. The natural sounds from the park is just the a satisfying ambience and perfect African date night experience. Summer has the openness and art and winter has the blankets and fore bowla's. Pleasentaries to Moyo for keeping it up. Also... I love traveling to different moyo's across the country for the creative locations, setups and African interior and exterior. #datenight #heaven More...

A relaxing and different experience with a classic SA ethnic flavour. Upstairs platform seating area, plus large downstairs general area, plus very large and spread out outside areas under stretch tents. Face painting service standard as per Moyo's tradition and guess what...the outside areas are pet-friendly and you may even ask for a water bowl for your pet. A great experience all round. Wheelchair friendly too. More...

Beautiful place. Great chilled vibe with live music. Food and drinks are amazing. The cocktails are nice and strong. I also love the complimentary starter bread that we got. It's very unique, I really enjoyed it. More...
