We had heard so much about this restaurant that we possibly had put the place on a pedestal. The service was slow and rather so so. The food was tasty, with the chicken and pork belly being really good. The fish cake were different but...nice. I found the place a little run down and rather overpricedMore

We absolutely loved Moggs! Please make a reservation when you are traveling in the Hermanus area. We went for a late lunch on a rainy Sunday. Getting to the restaurant is half the fun as it is in the Hemel en Aarde (Heaven and Earth)...valley next to several vineyards. The restaurant is on a lovely farm with several areas where kids can run and play. We would have loved to have sat outside on the patio on a nicer day but the inside dining room was cozy with a fire blazing in the fire place. The menu is relatively limited but there are options for vegetarians and kids. I had the baked mushroom and leek paella which was delicious. My husband really enjoyed his chicken, spinach, and olive stack. Be prepared to spend some time here as everything is made fresh and it can take some time for meals to be served. But you won't mind because this is such a charming place and the food is so fresh and tasty. This is a place that deserves all of the accolades it receives. We look forward to visiting again. It was truly one of the best meals we had in the Western Cape.More

What an unexpected gem?! Stumbled upon Moggs Country Cookhouse as a family - looking for something to eat & somewhere to spend some time. This was the best cooking I’ve enjoyed ever. This place is HONEST - From the chrysanthemum on the table, the herbs...in the salad, the vegetables in the dish, the apple sauce on the plate - ALL OF IT brought to the experience from the farm to the plate. This must be the definition of wholesome.More

Micheline star restaurant in the middle of a farm. Delicious food prepared with love and taste! Very good service and attention for the client. Loved the lamb, the fritters, risotto balls, curry, the fish and I am sure all what is on the menu is...as delicious! Top👍More

It was a special celebration and we were not disappointing ! The long and winding road did lead to a surprise! starter of cheese soufflé is not to be missed with a delish side salad! We were spoilt for choice but settled on the lamb...shank and pork belly which were both cooked to perfection. We tried the chocolate tart,which,although not to our taste,was pleasant. The staff were friendly and attentive and we will definitely make another trip out there to try all the other wonderful delights on the menu!More
