On a recent visit from the UK, my daughter and family took me to Moyo at the end of the pier by UShaka. Although we didn't eat - just beers and cocktails - the atmosphere was great. My daughter and granddaughter both had exquisite African style face painting for free. Unfortunately, while we were there there was a huge storm... More

We went for dinner and we ordered pork ribs and Oxtail Amos (159 Rands). The ribs taste good but it was not that tender similar to oxtail. The setting is nice and the staffs are friendly.

Wonderful place on Ocean coast in Durban. I am impressed of panoramic view of Durban from Moyo. In South Africa, everything is slow but the service in this Cafe&Restaurant is very quick. Not expensive place. I recommend to everybody to visit here, get a drink and watch Durban coast...

Ideally located at the end of the pier where they have cornered the market as they are the only outlet of any sort unless you go all the way back to Ushaka Marine World. Word of warning, as you enter the pier there is often a sand sculptor on the beach below, we didn't see the man himself as he... More

The restaurant is on a pier at Ushaka. Great views from the pier and the staff are friendly. The food is good but is a little overpriced.
