moyo Melrose Arch

In the heart of Johannesburg, the 350-seater, multi-level modern restaurant – clad in copper with pressed pebble walls – embodies Africa’s finest music and urban cuisine offerings.

Live stage bands provide soulful vibes and dining options are diverse – from relaxed meals enjoyed on the outdoor square, to romantic dinners in Gigi’s cosy alcoves.

Business lunches are ever popular, along with monthly events and corporate functions held in an authentic African club atmosphere, replete with a well-stocked wine cellar.
