Although the furniture is a bit tatty the food and drinks are still great. Anyone visiting SA for the first time should really eat there as you can sample many of the foods from Africa at one place without getting ill. Try the Mopani worms....More

Very tastefully setup place, large enough to accommodate our large event. Food was great, the service personal and attentive, and wines wonderful. All in all a great place to host a gathering. Especially for international visitors, Moyo offers quite a different dining experience, all good.
