The place looks nice, in a house in a garden, in mid Sea Point. Different rooms, we were near the bar, a quiet place. Decoration is a mix of traditionnal and modern. The menu is little bit short. Only fish was a truit i think. But quality overall, rafinate. Prices very correct

This place has been the best so far of my vast experience and will be a long time in my mind.Very good silver service followed by quality of food worthy of fine dining. An explosion of tastes in your mouth and quality of food is followed by a wide selection of wines. After sending my clients there, It is the... More

After reading the great TA reviews my girlfriend and I booked this restaurant and were very much looking forward to a great night. When we arrived we were impressed with the lovely setting and pleasantly surprised to be sitting outside around the outside of the large fountain. The only problem with that is that as the sun was setting it... More

After having so many excellent meals in Cape Town, we were rather disappointed with La Mouette. Perhaps it was an off night because other reviews suggest that it is usually quite good and the restaurant came recommended by a friend. I loved the setting - a grand Tudor style house with leaded windows in Sea Point. If the weather had... More

We had the six course tasting menu accompanied with wines. It was great to get a small choice as well and overall the food was really good. The wines were lovely and well chosen. Our waitress was excellent and it was lovely sitting outside in the courtyard. This was the best meal we had in Cape Town.

Dined here on our first night in Cape Town and eat outside in their lovely fountain dominated courtyard. Warm welcome and a wonderful meal accompanied by excellent friendly and efficient service. Good value for money with a good priced wine list too. I would certainly recommend La Mouette to anyone.

Last night I had the opportunity to enjoy the 6 course tasting menu. Right from the start the service was perfect. Our waiter did everything he could to ensure our experience was great including my personal issue with onions. Every course that was brought out; the chef made slight changes to accommodate me. It was great to see one of... More

Went for Sunday lunch with friends. It's a lovely old building with a pleasant courtyard adjacent to Regent Road, a little oasis amongst the concrete sprawl of Seapoint. There is a choice of the tasting menu or a la carte. The menu is not extensive which to me is always a good sign that the ingredients are fresh and cooked... More
