Description: 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.

This lovely old house is in the heart of Sea Point with a beautiful fountain at the entrance. You are seated outside or in one of the charming rooms. Although the house itself has been beautifully looked after and restored, the decor is a bit mismatched. The service was a little slow but very friendly and knowledgable and the food... More

We had pre-booked a table for dinner here on our last night in Cape Town on the recommendations from Tripadvisor, and we are so glad we did. We chose the Taster Menu with wine pairings and were guided through each course with enthusiasm and passion. The presentation and quality of the food was just outstanding and the flavours amazing.

We all participated in the fixed-price meal with wine pairings. Each of the courses was an excellent medley of flavors and spices. I particularly loved the tuna as well as the chocolate dessert, but everything was so good. I will definitely return when we head back to Cape Town.

Impromptu Christmas dinner with new friends - we had the tasting menu and were not disappointed. Each dish was fantastic, beautifully presented and delicious. The best one initially and so surprisingly was the gazpacho, and the sorbet - everyone raved about that too. We had fab wine, a great evening in a beautiful venue. Well done guys, keep it up.

Very impressed with last visit to La Mouette and this time it did not disappoint. Service was wonderful as was the food. The ambience in the courtyard by the fountain is delightful, you are a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Regent Road. Starters of cauliflower soup was creamy and tasty and the celery panacotta surprisingly good.... More

This was part of a "date night" - and I really wasn't disappointed. Don't be fooled by the size of the portions - the food is rich, has an explosion of tastes and leaves you totally satisfied! I had the Roasted cauliflower soup to start and sampled some of my partner's Peas, ham and eggs. Out of this world! The... More

We first visited La Mouette a couple of years back and were pleasantly surprised to find an inventive tasting menu with paired wines for what seemed a bargain price. Back then the ZAR was about 12 to the pound and I thought we'd done well, this year with the rate being about 17.5 I honestly think you'd struggle to get... More

This had to be one of the best dining experiences for flavour of ingredients that I have experienced in some time! The 3 different home made breads that came to the table at the beginning were a lovely introduction of what was to come. We shared the cauliflower soup and pea,ham and eggs start and both were stunning in their... More
