If you’ve left Valentines day to the last minute, you’re sure to score a spot for spoiling your love at Moyo.  All the places are sure to be taken on 14 February, so why not spoil your date the day before? It will be a surprise and will leave your Valentine’s day open to spend alone with your love, rather than with crowds in public places.

It is so appropriate to declare your love here, as Moyo is a translation from the Sanskrit language, Swahili and means heart. Moyo embodies African cuisine and charm, providing a unique African dining experience and it’s available at two gorgeous Cape Town locations this Valentine’s.


The pristine shores of the West Coast is an ideal location for the Moyo Blouberg branch, just a 20-minute drive from the Cape Town city centre. You’ll find Moyo within the Eden on the Bay centre which offers exquisite views of Table Mountain.


The Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is the perfect partner to Moyo, both filled with the bounty of African charm. The garden, at the foot of Table Mountain, is acclaimed as one of the great botanical gardens in the world and provides magnificent scenery.


Choose your location, make a booking, and prepare for an evening of delectable cuisine and soulful tunes. On arrival, you will each receive a Love Bite – a fresh and fruity cocktail. You may choose whether you’d like it to be infused with vodka or not.


Next up is the starter: a platter for two, perfect for sharing. A delicious fusion of Meditteranean and spicy flavours will leave you anticipating more.

There is plenty more, as you can choose between four main courses. African spiced fish and salad with chips, Moyo’s fillet, flamed to perfection with a Madagascan zing, a Moroccan-inspired vegetarian stew or Maputo chicken and prawns with a Portuguese flavour.


More choices follow with a dessert buffet that will seduce all your senses. Moyo stays open late, so you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

Treat your soul mate with soulful sounds and dinner under African skies at Moyo this Valentine’s.
