“Nice place - loads of atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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!

“My favourite place for the perfect Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Great gourmet food at very affordable prices; I especially favour the tasting menu. Really friendly service; with the full backup of the owners, one of whom is always present. The terrace gives al fresco dining in a really relaxing atmosphere.

They are also a strretsmart restaurant-a really worthwhile project to help children on the streets rebuild thier lives.
