LA mouette was a revelation when I visited the first time. Surprising food with inspiring new courses. Coming back after a year not much had changed for the good. Services gone down, with so much demand and popularity I guess you can treat our guests differently, indifferent. Prices have become to steep now with average services and no surprices anymore...

After reading the latest review entitled "an attitude problem" from SA T, we had reservations about booking at La Mouette. After a superb evening with an excellent menu and service, we decided to investigate SA T's reviews further. He/She did not have a good thing to say about any restaurant they attended in over 3 years. This either means they... More

Heard great things about this restaurant, but from the moment of booking to the moment of seating, more and more "restrictions" were placed - no substitutions, everyone on the table must order either tasting or al la carte. Sorry, as I diner I neither expect to be treated like I am attending a boarding school lunch, nor will I tolerate... More

Went for the 2014 winter special menu and had the menu paired with wine. Awesome quality at ridiculously low prices. Love the winter special initiative all over CT. Service is top class too.

I have eaten here a few times. The food and service is always great. Just really disappointed at how they've taken away table cloths and comfortable chairs. Feels like a pizzeria now.

Both of us had the 6 course tasting menu and we really enjoyed it. All courses were innovative and in an interesting way different eg. a celery panacotta (which I didn't like too much). Our highlight was the pork cheeks which were not from this world! The desert was also a phantastic combination of different sweet flavours! A wine pairing... More

I had to fly here a few weeks ago for work last minute and know nothing about the town so I relied on Tripadvisor for my dinning experience. This place is worth the ratings . I am sure the service is always this good because when the manager talks to the table you know the foundation is good. I love... More

Having eaten quite well several times at this pleasant establishment in the past, we were very disappointed last week with our overall experience on the occasion of my birthday despite the efforts of my family in organising it all in advance The service was still good and friendly but the food was very disappointing, especially the main courses- my lamb,though...
