Myoga Magic!

A recent cause for celebration led us – sans kiddies in tow – to Myoga Restaurant situated in the Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town.

Now, as a food and wine lover – there is only one real reason to head to Myoga……a food-lovers phenomenon worthy of mention across the globe, one that we have promised to ourselves for some time now. And what better celebration than a wedding anni to utterly indulge in food finery through their signature seven-course tasting menu.


This menu has been in circulation for some time now, changing and adapting to seasonal trends and inspirations, having seen a shift away from their original east west fusion style to incorporate more contemporary ideas from around the globe.


Available as a tasting meal option at R325 per person or including a wine pairing for R565 each – we opted for the menu option without the wine pairing – easier on the liver – and given that it was a school night!
