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.

Fantastic tasting menu

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!

We returned to La Mouette having eaten there a year ago and enjoyed their tasting menu. This time we opted for the A la Carte not only because we didn't fancy some if the choices on the tasting menu but also because we wanted bigger portions of the ones we did fancy! I'm sure it was the right decision. We... More

Why is this restaurant not in the Top Ten?? Anytime we visit Capetown, this restaurant is the first we make a reservation for every visit! The staff, ambience, service and, more importantly, the food, is superb in every way! We are airline personnel and travel the world in our daily business lives! This restaurant is way superior to everything else... More

Good service with reasonable prices, we chose the taster menu for 395 Rand and would recommend it. It is advisable to book and the outside dining area is very popular.

Such a delight to have the gorgeous vegetarian menu with wines to match. Always rather a struggle to find more than one veggie "choice" so to have a whole six courses was wonderful. Loved some of the wine matches which were surprising but worked! Will be back next time!

The tasting menu was superb, perfectly matched by the wines. The vichyssoise was to die for. Book a table
