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.
