Had a very nice dinner in Cape Town at La Mouette. We sat in a room a couple of feet from a warm fireplace. Our server, Knowledge, was great. We had a great meal thanks to his attention during our meal. We will definitely come back to La Mouette in the future.

If you enjoy interesting combinations and delicate flavours, a warm friendly ambience near a wood burning fire and subtle monochrome decor, you'll love the place. The staff are attentive and all 7 of us were served together. The Beef plate (main) and Rhubarb dessert was outstanding. The portions are adequate for nouvelle cuisine, but don't expect piled plates. An ideal... More

My husband and I tried the six course winter tasting menu with wine pairings for an astonishingly good value Rand 335 per head. The food was excellent, mainly deconstructed so each course was a surprise, imaginative and offered great flavour combinations. The wine choices worked well with the food and the service was relaxed, friendly and professional. Yet another fantastic... More

Yesterday evening we went to La Mouette to say farewell to our daughter and as usually it was a great experience. Since we couldn't quite find what we liked on the tasting menu we chose from the a la carte menu and shared it amongst ourselves. Trevor, our waiter was a great help, understanding the dishes and advising us. The... More

One of my favourite Cape Town restaurants. Try their winter tasting menu for only R195.00 per person. Amazing food for unbelievable value! Book a table close to one of their many fire places during winter. Wine selection is great and price range to suit everyone.

Congratulations to your chef. He understands how to respect his ingredients and delivers them impeccably. I had pork cheeks followed by the braised beef (I know, two braised meats), however the main course came with the surprise of some pan fried beef loin cooked medium rare.....delicious, my only question is to why the dish had pickled turnips on the plate,...

We visited this place due to the high ranking on trip advisor. We had the taste menu with wine pairing. Very noisy atmosphere, plastic chairs and lots of hectic. The 6 course menu was served so quickly, we had no chance to finish the wine glass from the previous course. I never wanted to leave a restaurant so fast. The... More

So this is our 6th time to La Mouette but who's counting... Service , food , attention from management were all just perfect. My favourite course was the final one but not just because they were all chocolate, it was our special message.

Spectacular food in a delightfully comfortable setting. This restaurant has a very inventive range of dishes that are an adventure for the tastebuds. Beautifully sculpted and presented dishes served by very well trained staff who were professionally attentive in a way that makes one feel very cared for without feeling overpowered. Don't miss this restaurant.
