I visited Kirstenbosch Gardens and I am disturbed by the behaviour of the workers - Jolene. We asked her for the bathroom and she told us that we should use the bathrooms that are all up the hill which was so far away from where...we were, I think bathrooms are fully open to the public - it’s very disrespectful as I had a baby with me who needed the toilet too. My daughter went to order at Moyo later on and she told them they couldn’t enter inside the restaurant and we should order from her but they were aware that she is not the nicest person and told her they were prefer ordering inside instead and while they were inside she came in and was rude to one of my girls and rudely told her not to tap the card on the machine. If she has issues with herself, she should not work around people. She is rude and the manager should do something about it. Her attitude stinks.More

To whom it may concern I would like to lay a formal complaint and it is to be noted in this email against your restaurant managers, Patricia and Floyd who work at the Moyo branch in Kirstenbosh Gardens. My mother is 83 years old and...justifiably scared of contracting COVID 19. It was son's birthday and it was the first time we were getting together as a family. It was a big deal to a close knit family. I literally begged for half an hour for the maitre d’ to allow us to sit outside because there were two empty tables to the right of the entrance. My mother still refused to go inside the restaurant because it would increase her chances of getting COVID. Out of desperation I asked to see the manager (Floyd) He refused but at my insistence he conferred with another manager, Patricia who also refused permission. He explained that because if he allowed us to be seated there it would lay a precedence to the other patrons. After all the fuss my mother reluctantly agreed to go inside. We had a lovely meal, enjoyed a wonderful get together and we celebrated my son's birthday. I was very content. However, upon exiting the restaurant the table we requested outside was full of people. As you can imagine I was furious! I spoke to both Floyd and Patricia to express my unhappiness. They apologized but what was more concerning was their double standards. An apology is not acceptable under these circumstances. It spoiled our day what should have been a happy event. I would greatly appreciate it if you speak to your managers and chastise them for their lack of judgement and discrimination. I refuse to enter the restaurant again. Sent from my iPhoneMore

Great to be back outdoors breathing fresh air and enjoying the excellent service at Moyo. They check your temperature as you enter and follow all sanitizing protocols.

Horrible. Common power outages are part of our lives. Get a generator! But many menu items were not available not due to power outage but no stock. 3 of the wines we asked for they did not have. 3 meals were cold and chicken so...undercooked one friend had to eat alone. The place needs some TLC. Considering you have to pay R75 just to enter the park and then get mediocre food not on.More

We've been to this restaurant several times and it's usually great. However, our visit yesterday was disappointing. While the food was satisfactory, the service was bad. Two of us didn't get the drinks we had ordered until we we halfway through our meal and attention...by our server was generally sloppy. To crown it all, while we were chatting at our table after we had eaten, a server came up with two new guests and asked if they could join our table (obviously knowing we were going to leave soon.) it was rude and unprofessional. Time to reinforce customer service.More

This is much the same as it has been for several years. The food is tasty and undemanding. You don’t end up feeling you wanted to eat more and the service is friendly and well-judged, so if you need another ten minutes sitting while you...digest the meal that’s fine and if you want to shift out fast then they facilitate that too. We have never booked and they always seem to fit us in, even though it’s a quite busy restaurant. It’s child friendly too although that wasn’t an issue for us so far from our grandchildren. Anyway I recommend it.More

A sullen non-welcome, unwillingness to seat us outside to have just a drink before lunch, sullen service, cold coffee, no sparkling water led us to cancel our lunch plans and get a taxi to another venue. The restaurant was not busy and we also had...to call for the bill twice. I think I know why it was not busy on a Sunday... so disappointing as the views are world class.More

So just wondering why you did not respond last year when I wrote the review. Just been to Kirstenbosch again and avoided Moyo- tried the Tea garden place instead!
