Although the restaurant is located along a busy street, you can eat on the patio in a peaceful atmosphere. The food is sophisticated. Not cheap, but you get value for your money. A must if you want to enjoy a quality meal in a peaceful setting.

We enjoyed the tasting menu at La Mouette. It was a spectacular setting, with Cape Town experiencing quite a warm patch of summer, the evening was temperate and the garden table was perfect. Each course was tasty and well presented. It was a truly incredible evening.

This is one of the best restaurants in Cape Town. Food is amazing, and right on Seapoints main shopping street. A short walk from Beech Road.

My wife and I recently dined at La Mouette which was suggested by the B&B at which we were staying. The food was delicious and artfully presented. The only reason I did not award a 5-star rating is that some of the concoctions seemed a bit contrived such as the crispy shrimp and popcorn appetizer. Trust me, these are two... More

My wife and I chose La Mouette for our final dinner in Cape Town. We were not disappointed! The tasting menu (we chose vegetarian) was a succession of wonderful tastes and unusual combinations. The Goats cheese panna cotta, Sweet corn risotto, and Hazelnut latte (desert) are especially memorable. With very good accompanying wines the 6 courses were 475 Rand for... More

This was the best restaurant experience of my life. An atmospheric, romantic setting; attentive and exceptionally knowledgable staff; outstanding value for money; and the most delicious, creative menu. We sampled the 6 course vegetarian tasting menu with wine pairing. Exquisite.

I have been to the Sea Point area a number of times, but had no idea that there was a restaurant of this quality in the area. The service was very good and the food prepared with thought and care. Lovely flavours! Don't expect big portions, this is nouvelle cuisine. Highly recommended if looking for something to please a finer... More

At the suggestion of our hotel we ate here on the second night of our honeymoon. The service and food were both very excellent and the taster menu (we opted for 6 courses not seven!) outstanding.
