Visited Moyo on a quiet Monday evening. Sat indoors due to the poor weather. Food and ambiance were great, as was the service and their attention to detail.

Had a great time at Mayo with drinks and live music. Staff was attentive as well. Food quality was just ok. However, certainly worth the atmosphere.

We wanted to cap off our South African trip with a night of African food. Mayo delivered. The restaurant is cozy with a quartet playing. The crowd was lively. We started With some delicious and innovative drinks. On to the mains, where my guys went for ostrich and venison. The ostrich was amazing. My son was less enthused by the venison. I had a steak and an amazingly large house salad. We also enjoyed the roobois tea creme brûlée for dessert. The most fun came when our waiter asked if he could paint our faces! It was our last night in Africa and we were up for anything!

Such a fun and delicious final meal in South Africa. We would not hesitate to go back.

We sat inside upstairs looking down at the live band playing during dinner. Excellent friendly and helpful service. Food was delicious and interesting preparation. Several vegetarian choices on the menu. Good selection of wines.
