We had a work function at La Mouette - what a treat. In the heart of bustling Sea Point, right next to the main road, La Mouette is an oasis of calm and enchantment with fairy lights in the trees and proper courtyard with a fountain and candles all around. Inside, the upstairs area was a delight, with two wonderful fires, comfy couches and a great service. A real pleasure !

This is a beautiful place for delicious food, the service is good, a little slow (for some) maybe but I like my food slow, and staff are friendly and helpful. The soup was divine and the crackling fire made it a wonderful place to shelter from the Cape winter rain. I highly recommend this as a treat of a night out.

We were a table of 7 yesterday and the service, food and ambiance was excellent. Our waiter went to so much trouble ensuring we had a great meal and time. Food was really tasty and attention to detail plating.

What a pleasure to experience a meal in a restaurant in which you do not feel like a sardine and where you do not feel rushed. La Mouette appear to stagger their guest arrival times thereby ensuring that one does not feel hemmed in and the waiters are able to give you their full attention - and what well trained waiters. Housed in a beautiful old building with effective, comforting fires on the go - a great atmosphere.

La Mouette offer a tasting menu which changes each month - a very worthwhile experience - or if you prefer, you can order from the a la carte menu.

Advisable to book!

We have read a lot about La Mouette, and we finally managed to book and go for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is set in an old Cape building and as it was winter the fires were burning inside, and we had a lovely table by the fireplace.

The service was very good from the whole front of house team. Our waiter was excellent with the waiter explaining all the dishes and being very attentive to our party’s needs. One of our party was pregnant, and as such didn’t want to eat the 6 course tasting menu, and with no hassle her requests for other dishes were accommodated.

The 6 course tasting menu that they have is extremely good value for money. The combination of flavours on the plate is exquisite and the plating is also beautiful in every sense. Each dish was perfect and we couldn’t find fault with anything that we ate.

We will definitely be back when in Cape Town again, and this definitely is a must for everyone that wants excellent food at good value for money.
