My family and i enjoyed the 7 course tasting meal from 13:30 to approx 17:00 on Sunday afternoon. It was a very relaxing atmosphere where we enjoyed our engagement. We could hear each other and experienced no noise or disturbance. The food was interesting and tasteful. The desert was excellent. Reasonable value for money.

We have been to La Mouette several times and never disappointed, but this visit was certainly one of our favourites. The tasting menu was outstanding and perfectly paired to the chosen wines. The service is flawless - waiters are unobtrusive, warm, friendly and professional. The price has increased substantially over the years, but it still feels worthwhile for a special... More

The tasting menu with wine pairing is one of the best meals we have had in Cape Town over 8 years. First class flavours, sophistication and presentation made for a memorable experience - matching wines came from top vineyards and complemented the meal. Biscuit factory - watch out! Service and knowledge of staff also was excellent

Delicious tasting menu and very friendly staff, highly recommended. Especially the Caprese Salad (which you wouldn't think there was a lot you could vary with - you'd be wrong) and the Mushrom Gyozas (essentially mushroom dumplings) were amazing. Relative to other restaurants we visited in Cape Town I wouldn't say the price was particularly high when accounting for the quality... More

My boyfriend and I went here after our host booked us in, unfortunately we weren't on the list for some reason but the manager made no fuss of squeezing us in. The staff are so polite and always pleased to help with anything. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely.

I went to La Mouette to celebrate a special event with my mom and my boyfriend on a warm Saturday evening. We are used to good restaurants and it was our first time there. It was perfect : The standard tasting menu was delicious and each meal surprised us while not being pretentious. The waiter (sorry I forgot your name... More

The food was delicious and service ok. A bit too big and unpersonal. One could also say too professional and too less charming...all in all ok and we would come again.

The food was ok. The side veg was the best part. My ostrich was ok. Bit lukewarm. My wife's fish looked bit dry The wine was good and the service was good. The outside table was average, beside a tatty fountain. The inside Arabs looked better and more classy. They had a nice touch to recognise my wife's birthday with... More

Dear GolfDuck Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We value all feedback and have taken your food comments to the chefs to discuss in more detail as the ostrich should not be served lukewarm - my apologies for this. We are however pleased that you enjoyed the service and the wines as we have been working... More
