We have been to La Mouette a number of times and have never been disappointed. We have had the tasting menu every time and the inventiveness of the food, the flavours and tastes are some of the best I have had. We have travelled extensively and in my opinion, this is still one of my favourite places. Well worth it... More

We chose La Mouette because it's been highly rated on TripAdvisor, so maybe we expected too much. To begin with, we weren't that impressed with our table - I sat looking at a fire extinguisher on a wall all evening and there really wasn't much atmosphere. But we wanted to enjoy ourselves so we started by ordering a bottle of... More

Set menus are always easy when entertaining business clients. La Mouette makes it super easy and top-notch. I will use the venue again for business groups. Topped by really slick service. Best for me In Cape Town.

Absolute value for money, amazing management team, and just quality food to satisfy everyone's needs. Offer a tasting menu and ala carte, when the weather is great, you must sit outside in their stunning courtyard. Just keep... More
