    Add more to your drink selection. Ensure dineplan booking fee is included in bill without queries. Serve table bread especially due to food waiting time.

    Moody Lagoon at Benguela Cove responded on Sun 15 Jan 23:
    Thank you for your review I am pleased you rated Moody Lagoon so highly. I am sorry for the service level you experienced, your server actually left yesterday as well which may account for their lack of effort and care . If this happens again please alert our management whilst dining.

    Definitely a place to take visitors for a special evening. The booking system was also easy to use and convenient. The silhouette of the Faith statue after the sunset was spectacular.
