Moody Lagoon at Benguela Cove
Relaxed lagoon-side dining with cocktails and great wine!
Moody Lagoon at Benguela Cove is set in the heart of the Benguela Cove winery complex. The restaurant is in an elevated setting with expansive views of the lagoon and the Atlantic ocean. The kitchen at Moody Lagoon is the domain of Annie Badenhorst a talented young Namibian chef with a passion for finding only the best fresh produce and creatively turning dishes into simple but creative menu items.
You can expect outstanding views, a casual and relaxed daytime eatery in Hermanus, with outdoor covered seating areas. We offer a choice of dishes, together with food and wine pairing with Benguela Cove’s Estate wines.
In the evening, Chef Badenhorst likes to cook to create an occasion, and Moody Lagoon restaurant is the perfect place for a date night or a night out with friends.
We offer private dining in our vinotheque for up to 12 guests with a combination of exceptional food, superb wines and outstanding service.
The Barrel Room can accommodate 60 guests. Booking essential
Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is also open for vineyard tours, wine tastings
on the lagoon, live music on Sundays and wine tastings and pairings at the Tasting Room.
