We booked this restaurant on line and paid a 200 rand per head booking fee (later deducted from the bill) for the last night of our stay in Cape Town and were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome and were served aperitifs whilst we studied the menus. My wife has several food allergies but this proved no problem as... More

Despite the fact many tables were empty. Waiter all over us like a cheap suit to pour our wine. 4 at our table We were on our 3rd... More

We had the tasting menu and loved it. Every dish was absolutely bang on....wine pairing worked perfectly....staff lovely and friendly. Put simply a lovely meal, with great staff in a beautiful setting. The kitchen can really cook and the staff are lovely so what could there be to complain about? Nothing. It is on the 'not to be missed' list... More

Had to book well in advance to get in here, Set around the courtyard of an old house once home to the Mayor of Cape Town, this French-inspired establishment offers modern cuisine beautifully plated. There is a seasonal tasting menu with excellent matching wines or a small ala carte menu which revolves around the tasting menu. My starter of tuna... More

This is the 2nd time that I had a meal at La Mouette and it was excellent. This time around we selected Ala Carte (not tasting) and as with the previous visit - the attention to detail and taste was superb. Lamb Shoulder and 3 by steaks were all cooked to perfection. The presentation is a visual feast.

La Mouette is a fine dining experience that brings good service, good wine and amazing food all together. The venue itself is worth a visit- steeped in history - a beautiful house that now offers amazing Cuisine. We opted for the A la Carte menu, and the food was of an exceptional standard. The waiter made some superb wine suggestions... More

When ever we stay at Blackheath Lodge in Sea Point we always dine at La Mouette. It is a restaurant set in a former nunnery with lovely walled grounds in Sea Point. It is always a treat to eat outside and the menu is always enticing. On our first evening in Jan 2017 we thoroughly enjoyed the Chef’s Tasting Menu... More
