We have been lucky enough to have got a table despite having arrived there around 1 pm without reservation. The place is somehow 'basic' but sophisticated at the same time and the food and the wine are just amazing and the surroundings are gorgeous. The...More

We went for a mid-week lunch. Moggs is a delightful stop among the wine estates of the Hemel and Aarde Valley just outside Hermanus. It feels like a homely country cottage with fabulous and friendly service. The menu is varied with some good vegetarian options...More

We have often raced past the hidden track to Moggs. Country Cookhouse? Reminds me of backwoods USA and hominy grits! More fool me. Friends chose it for a weekday lunch it proved a delight. The setting is brilliant - tucked away on the serenity of...More
