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.

We wandered in on a Saturday night without a reservation and we were greeted and looked after by some superb staff. They found us a table and we opted for the 6 course spring tasting menu. What a surprise - interesting combinations which worked very well. Presentation excellent. We loved every course, especially the celery panna cotta and springbok. The... More

We went to la Mouette a week ago. The level of noise irritated us quite. The food was abit of a surprise. Many ingredients on slate plates but how to eat them. The meat was tasty. The staff was ok.

People who frequent Cape Town or live here regularly know this to be one of the top restaurants in the country. innovative courses, amazingly fresh ingredients, and most of all non-pretentious and welcoming! Staff and management are passionate about La Mouette and it shows in every interaction and is palatable in every bite. Thank you La Mouette!

I know it is the third time I review this place. Just wanted to say that I stll find it to be one of the very best in town, if not the best. Went for a la carte this time. Delightful calamari to start with, followed by the springbook pie, and then Eton mess for dessert. All in all, very,... More

We found this restaurant on TA, and it looked amazing! Happy that we did find it on TA, because one is not likely to find this by walking around or having a drive in Cape Town. The atmosphere was lovely and the food great! very well presented. Sadly, my favourite part of a meal - Dessert, was a disaster! See... More

I recently enjoyed a Sunday evening with some Danish friends at La Mouette. A charming outdoor section of the restaurant was set aside for our party (about 18 of us) when the power went out in the area. This had nil effect on our enthusiasm and the flowing conversation. This also didn't appear to phase the professional staff of the... More

Well, the good news is I am alive to write this review. The bad news is, do not drive to La Mouette in Cape Town, as I did per my GPS and directions. This address is about 40 minutes north-west of the V&A Waterfront and not a good neighborhood. In fact it was a residential area with people sleeping on... More

We have had a fabulous meal here last night. The service was excellent and the food wonderful. They have a six course 'taster' menu or A large carte. Both looked good, but we went for the latter. It was really tasty and beautifully presented. There was nothing ostentatious about the place, just good food in nice surroundings.
