Hi Leanne You are absolutely accurate in your review of last Sunday's lunch. We were indeed short staffed so tried to keep our numbers manageable but a few tables increased their numbers on the day and we tried our best. We apologize for your disappointing visit and more so for the hair in your food - totally unacceptable! I would... More

If the lengthy drive up the jeep track was party of the country experience, it worked! Well worth it for a delightful and leisurely lunch. Food choices were great with real opportunity for food envy. Service was friendly in this quaint and quirky spot.

Laid back ambience with absolutely fabulous food. We were a group of 17 adults and 2 children and every single person could not stop talking about their food. Many of us had the linefish of the day and many said it was the nicest fish dish that they have ever had. Great service. We will be back! A memorable meal.

A picturesque setting high in the mountains with lovely gardens and views. After drinks in the garden, our table inside also afforded pleasant view of the valley. An enjoyable meal with a distinctly unusual menu and a very personal service. Will definitely return with friends next year.

What a wonderful experience this quaint country restaurant is. We had the most wonderfully presented, flavourful lunch here with fabulous, friendly service and a really lovely country ambience. A must when visiting Hermanus!

What a lovely gem of a restaurant. Beautiful setting, with amazing food and super friendly service. We visited as a group of friends for Sunday lunch. A warm welcome and a craft beer later... and everyone was looking forward to the amazing food! Must do if you are in the area. Well worth it!

After a morning wine tasting with friends in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley we stopped at Moggs for much needed lunch. Rabbit pie, lamb shanks and belly pork were our choices - really delicious. The atmosphere was very relaxed. The staff most welcoming.

My wife & I had the luck to enjoy a fantastic lunch experience here while tasting across S. Africa. From outward appearances the restaurant is very basic, but the complexity of the lunch offerings were superb. As a welcome surprise was the wide selection of beers they offered, which while tasting wine for 3-days was very refreshing.
