Fabulous cosy evening!

After a friend recommend this restaurant we decided to visit. Were lucky to secure a table on short notice, to our surprise we were able to sit directly next to the roaring fireplace. The food was true fine dining and the chef/s really did out of the ordinary dishes. Loved the evening and added... read more

This restaurant was one of several recommended by our tour guide and, being just a few blocks from our hotel, we booked a table for an early dinner one night. We took one look at the tasting menu and were happily shocked at the reasonble price -- only about USD 60 pp. That included the 9 wines, which were first... More

I have visited this restaurant twice, each time with a friend and my daughter. We have never been disappointed. The service is excellent with staff that are friendly and knowledgeable without being condescending. On both occasions we chose the tasting menu which is great value for money. It makes it possible for us to treat ourselves to food of the... More

I have recently dined at La Mouette where I opted for the set menu. I enjoyed my meal encompassed by a beautiful romantic surrounding and absolutely impeccable service. I was treated extremely well by the front of house and waitrons. If you are looking to treat a significant other to an impressive meal and ambiance, do try La Moutte.

We had a delicious meal at La Mouette in January 2015 - they have a large outdoor space for dining when the weather is good. Coming from London, we found the meal to be extraordinarily good value and at times the food was Michelin star quality. Highly recommended!

Well done to the minds behind this restaurant. I am not one for Tapas/tasting menus but this restaurant really blew me away. I was able to get a booking on the day which was incredible especially for a weekend. I decided to do the 6 course taster and I was very impressed... definitely a suggestion for first timer costs R295... More

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary on Sunday 14 June 2015 and chose to celebrate over a lazy lunch at La Mouette. What a fantastic choice. The service was excellent, the staff very friendly and professional and the food was outstanding! The fires were burning which created a lovely warm atmosphere for a cold winters day in Cape Town.

Probably the most adventurous cuisine in Sea Point. The restaurant occupies an old Victorian stand alone house in Regent Road, Sea Point. It is a very gorgeous house. There are four rooms downstairs and upstairs area which I did not see. Nice and cosy with excellent service. Open fires in most rooms, necessary in winter. In summer there is an... More
