Great place to have lunch or a drink while visiting the gardens. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Prices are good, food is good, and service is good. Restrooms are clean. Nice atmosphere inside and peaceful outside. Great views.

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!
