Wow, what a gem of a place. The tasting menu is fantastic, wide variety of choice. Service top class, not too intrusive but good attention to detail. A special meal in a special city! Recommended

“Tasty meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Rave reviews may be exaggerating a tad but all in all a tasty, imaginative meal, attentive service and a pleasant outdoor seating next to the fountain. We did have to negotiate not to sit right at the entrance which gives on to the main road, which was a slight effort but successful in the end. The courtyard was pleasant but the local is quite (sub)urban - looking straight out onto a busy road or loomed over by a construction site.

“Nice place - loads of atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We really like it here - been a couple of times and the service is always friendly and the food good. It's not expensive either.

“Interesting spot for a relaxed year-end team dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Unexpectedly attractive spot in Seapoint. We enjoyed sitting in the outdoor area at the front before dinner (service could have been a little sharper) and then moved to a large table indoors for our main meal. The food was good, but again the service could have been sharper.

“Incredible Food & Incredible Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Dinner at La Mouette is one of the most incredible experiences in Cape Town. It's a tucked-away gem and the friendly, efficient service only complements the incredible food served by Chef Henry.

As a local Cape Townian, it's where I choose to dine at least once a month!
