I had my Birthday lunch there yesterday and I must say everything was surely on point. The service from our waiter Benjamin to the serving of food and drinks. It was all go easy we never waited long and the vibe was perfect. Thank you and keep up the good work. Laura

My favourite time to eat at Moyo Melrose Arch is in the evenings, sitting outside with a blanket, good food, good service, feels special.

The Grand Circle tour group had its welcome dinner here and it was a delightful experience. The food was great as was the jazz music. The staff was friendly and attentive and we had a great evening.
