Editor's choiceHidden jewel
Myoga, operated by renowned chef Mike Basset, is situated in the beautiful Vineyard Hotel and Spa in Newlands with spectacular moutain views and elegant, contempary furnishings. Ambience is relaxed yet service is impecible. A true fine dining experience. I will keep going back to Myoga time and time again for the excellent quality of food. The kitchen is set in the heart of the restaurant, and if seated nearby you can watch the chefs in action.

I will keep going back to Myoga time and time again for the excellent quality of food. The kitchen is set in the heart of the restaurant, and if seated nearby you can watch the chefs in action. The food is always of a high standard with fresh local ingredients. If visiting Cape Town in winter, take advantage of Myoga's special 5 course menu which leaves you more than satisfied but not uncomfortable. Myoga also boasts a very knowledgable sommelier who can help pair the perfect wine with your meal and is often overly generous with his pouring and is happy for you to taste your wine before choosing.

The ambience at Myoga is perfect for any occassion, although I would not recommend it as a family venue. Seating is comfortably spread out at elegant tables around the kitchen area and smaller booths and tables on the indoor balcony. In summer enjoy the spectacular views of Table Mountain and the rolling lawns of the hotel. Decor is classic but contemporary and certainly not stuffy, with quirky bathrooms including CCTV to the kitchens on the toilet doors!


Finally the staff are highly trained. They offer discreet service, never crowding or rushing you, but always on hand when needed. Nothing is too much effort. Locals may find Myoga a bit on the pricey side, however it is well worth the visit for a special occassion. back
