Moyo Melrose Arch is a 500-seat African a la carte dining experience that has won multiple honours. This gourmet African pleasure is spread across five stories, with quaint copper and steel staircases connecting the mezzanines. African-inspired water features and intercepting alcoves and pathways showcase the continent’s historical roots. Watch the performers on the double-volume centre stage while tapping your foot to an African beat coming from the bar or, if you’re lucky, having sporadic conversations with them at your table. In the cigar lounge, take a puff on a hand-rolled cigar while exhaling shapes of clouds flavoured with African vanilla. The restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Johannesburg.
The fine selection of single malt whiskey and cognac is romanced by the ambient lighting, while a wine cellar and wine connoisseur connect this rustic experience with the refined. A Moroccan tent dominates the ground floor, and beaded curtains on stage level two will shield your company from the audience. Both locals and visitors from other countries will feel as though they should continue on safari after an evening at Moyo Melrose Arch. The Swahili word for soul is “Moyo,” and dining at Moyo is a soulful African experience. A great place for an African Christmas or New Year’s celebration… or just a simple African date.
