What a charming bistro. When we went it was a beautiful summers eve so we sat outside. The service is brilliant and very attentive. Their tomato salad is some of the best I've tasted. The wine pairing is good. I will most definitely be back.

Awesome mid-summer menu. Every course of the 6 course tasting menu was really intelligently put together and tasted fabulous. You have to have the muesli, I didn't but my wife did and she let me try it, just Perfect. The service was polite, helpful and timely. Never rushed. If you are in Cape Town one night eat here.

A wonderful evening with the family in December. My husband and I visited La Mouette in February last year and were blown away!!! We returned with the family in December and it did not disappoint. In my view this restaurant should be number one in Cape Town and is by far one of the best restaurants in Cape Town....I just... More

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Cape Town. Service was genuine and very friendly and the food fantastic! Clean and tidy environment. I recommend steak with a large selection of sides and sauces of your choosing. Everything fresh and with a home made impression. The waiter recommended a delicious S.A red wine, Chocholate Block. Was happy... More

We visited La Mouette as a party of six. The courtyard setting was great with locals and visitors dining al fresco. The menu was good and service friendly and efficient. A little more time by waiting staff explaining the composition of dishes would have helped our food selection and enjoyment of what was very good food. Very reasonable prices given... More

The food was very good and the service too! What makes this place memorable is the fact that it is frequented by locals and tourists alike, that the food is of fresh and good quality and that the setting, with its private terrace is unique in Sea Point. Also the price is very reasonable for what you get!

Several friends and I enjoyed a meal here when in Cape Town earlier this year wrapping up our trip. We all had the tasting menu, which was perfect. Much less heavy than a few others we’d done on the trip. Great service - the wait staff was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. I also love that you can BYO... More

The food was fantastic and the setting was perfect. This was an excellent tasting menu experience. The service, presentation, food & atmosphere were all great. The pork, gazpacho and Namibian lamb were my favourites. We were a party of 5 celebrating my son's 18th birthday - a gift from his friend. What an incredible evening with incredible people and food... More

Visited on a beautiful, still Cape Town evening and could not have imagined a better setting. Lovely restaurant with friendly staff and superb food - the tasting menu was to die for!
