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.

Superb

This is a really great restaurant. My wife and I ate here whilst on holidays in Cape Town. We had the tasting menu, and found it to be excellent. Don't miss this place if you visit Cape Town!

Friends and I ate here two nights ago. The food was excellent -- we had seafood and chicken -- and the desserts were very beautifully presented and very tasty. I recommend it!

Good food, reasonable prices. Not the best meal we had in Cape Town, but certainly worth a visit. The portion sizes were average.

Having just arrived in Cape Town on the first night of our honeymoon this restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel Manager. We took the short walk to the restaurant which looks lovely from the outside and once inside the stately ambiance continued. We were shown to a very lovely table upstairs and were treated almost like royalty by... More

This restaurant had a good diverse menu with fish and meat. The tasting menu looked really good but we decided to go with the menu. The food was very good. The restaurant was full and obviously does well with people who live in Cape Town. It was a good meal and reasonably priced for the quality of food.

After a long day of activities that ended with a cable car ride up Table Mountain, we learnt about La Mouette and drove right there! They had enough room to accommodate our party. Cozy, non fussy, yet sophisticated atmosphere! The food was excellent! Only downside: seemed there weren't enough waiting staff to go round.

We were 3 couples. We decided to go for the food and wine pairing menu. The fireplace creates an amazing, warm atmosphere. I was really impressed with the beautiful plating. The wines complimented every dish it came with. Great experience.
