Opened in May 2010, La Mouette already established itself as a restaurant of note. We enjoyed a memorable Tasting Menu of 6 courses for R185, every item beautifully presented and delicious. We heartily recommend La Mouette.

We had an outstanding meal at La Mouette last week and now that we are home in Ireland need to congratulate the owners and staff of this fabulous restaurant. Our hotel ,the Atlantic Affair recommended the restaurant,and we were greeted by the owner on a very busy evening.We were warned that the power may be off for part of the... More

We had a dinner reservation for 13 people and were placed in a private room near the entrance which was quite nice. The restaurant wasn’t terribly busy that evening so the service was relatively good despite us being somewhat isolated. The food did take some time but wasn’t unreasonable, seeing as though there were 11 orders for the tasting menu.... More

10 out of 10. No space for dessert. Service good. Food top notch. Fair pricing for both the food and wine.

We visited here for lunch on a sunny Sunday in April and sat outside in the courtyard. Service was superb throughout - attentive but not intrusive. We had the trout confit starter, Namibian lamb, and then gin and tonic dessert. All were wonderfully balanced dishes, beautifully presented with great combinations of flavours, textures and colours. A feast for the eyes... More

My husband and I went here for our first dinner in Capetown while on our honeymoon. Our hotel Derwent House booked it for us so we had no idea what to expect but the food was absolutely incredible! We did the tasting menu with wine pairings and the portion sizes of the food actually left us feeling pleasantly full by... More

Excellent is the word. It is a taste experience. Small portions but very good. One of the better restaurants in Cape Town.

La Mouette is a real surprise. It's at the smarter end of Sea Point, on Cape Town's Atlantic coast, at the southern end of the High Street, where it becomes Regent Road. You dine in an open air walled courtyard on the corner of a main street and side street, but you could just as easily be in a rural... More

Over rated. Waited 50 mins for main, 20 mins for deserts and an amazing 25 mins for the bill!!!! Food was good but not stunning. The wine was good- Tokara Reserve. We won't be rushing back.

I've written 5 other reviews for Cape Town restaurants this evening and I am sad to say this is my "disappointing" post. We went on Easter Sunday so it was busy. At first service was great but then deteriorated through lunch as things got more hectic. Starters and desserts were great but the main course was disappointing (lamb - very... More
