We had lunch here on a busy afternoon with a good atmosphere of families and couples. The food was of outstanding quality. Very well presented. Great flavours and textures. Would have been an easy five but for some pretty slow service at times.

We spent New Year's Eve at La Mouette - we were there for six hours from 630 to 12:30 AM. The food was inventive and delicious - but not too fussy - and the service attentive, but not overbearing. For example on the appetizer menu...More

I can’t believe how much Cape Town has changed but mostly Sea Point. Many excellent restaurants and La Mouette is not to be missed. Enjoy their excellent food and services. And if you are in for an even better treat, do the wine pairing as...More
