Best meal in Cape Town?

We ate a lot of incredible food in Cape Town, but I think La Mouette might just be our favourite meal. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings, a steal at 645 ZAR, and everything was just superb. You have a choice of meat, fish or veggie for the later courses, which is a nice touch, and there... read more

When reserving asked if anyone in the party had food allergies they were told I do not eat garlic. On arrival I was told that I could have the steak or the fish. I wanted lamb, and they agreed to do that. I was presented with a few slices of roast lamb with fries and some forgettable vegetables. No sauce... More

This was quite simply the best meal I have ever eaten. The tasting menu (with wine pairing) was utterly memorable. Every mouthful was a little taste of perfection. Beautifully prepared, thoughtfully presented and served with such care and attention to detail. It was also amazing value for money - you would be lucky to eat a meal this good for... More

There's no doubt that the food here is good and usually well presented. The service was pleasant and attentive. It was a birthday celebration and they made a nice dessert plate for us. The area around the restaurant is busy, but the courtyard is pleasant despite the large blocks of businesses around. There's no real view as such, but it... More

A superb experience, from time of booking till the end. A special Sunday night dinner celebration ticked all the boxes. A beautiful, gracious old house tucked away in bustling Sea Point. Entering the pretty garden, strung with fairy lights, you are welcomed by friendly staff. We were seated upstairs - beautiful wooden staircase- and we were pleased with the generous... More

Tasting menu with wine enjoyed in the fabulous courtyard setting. Excellent food, superb service as always and terrific value for those of us leaving the awful UK weather behind …

With their carefully crafted seasonal tasting menu, La Mouette is luxury without the price tag. My advice, go for the full tasting menu with wine pairing and take an Uber.

We had a wonderful night under the beautiful Cape Town sky. The tasting menu is truly a winner and not to heavy on your wallet! Everyone was extremely friendly. They even brought a special gift from the kitchen because we were celebrating a birthday. Fantastic night! Would definitely go again!

I find this to be a golden nugget when it comes to food. Their tasting menu with the local wine package amazingly good. The atmosphere in the garden is warm, friendly and perhaps a bit more stylish than other restaurants I've been to here. I'll go there again next time!
