I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with some friends here a few months ago. We arrived late for our reservation and less two people, but the host still greeted us with a smile and welcomed us to our table. The food was outstanding and the knowledge of the waiters impeccable. The set menus were extremely exciting and tasty, beyond words. I... More

La Mouette is a beautiful historic house in the heart of Seapoint neighbourhood. Their set menus are amazing, and rotates every season! In the winter, we love popping by LM to dine by the fireplace. Their courtyard is spacious & sunny for summer vibes, food is delicious with great presentation!

We have been to this lovely little Seapoint gem a few times and every time we did the tasting menu. The price is amazing for what you get and the service outstanding. All round a great romantic option for Seapoint if you sit outside under the fairy lights or inside by the fireplace in winter.

This is the 2nd time I have been and it's by far the best restaurant I have been to in Cape Town! The service makes it extra special! I've been lucky enough to have Annie on both occasions! She is phenomenal at her job and completes bye whole experience! Tasting menu is a must paired with wines! Thank you again!... More

My wife and I are on our first visit to Cape Town, and decided to eat at La Mouette. This place is phenomenal! We went with the 6 course tasting menu, and loved every bit of it. Not only the taste, but the presentation and service was really good too. Highly recommend.

My mom and I went there on a Friday night after booking reservations that afternoon. We were blown away by how amazing the good was and the service was excellent as well!! We went to Test Kitchen the next day for lunch, and I have to say that La Mouette was better! We both wanted to lick our plates after... More

The tasting menu paired with wine is superb and a must do. The flavours, the combinations and the presentation of the food is spectacular. The portions are big for a tasting menu recommend you pace yourself. A wonderful evening and great ambience.

LA mouette was a revelation when I visited the first time. Surprising food with inspiring new courses. Coming back after a year not much had changed for the good. Services gone down, with so much demand and popularity I guess you can treat our guests differently, indifferent. Prices have become to steep now with average services and no surprices anymore...
