Very good. Awesome tastes and interesting ingredients that blow your taste buds. Service is great as well and nice ambiance. No a la carte menu only 2, 3 or 5 course option. Pricey but well worth it.

Not quite as good as my last visit a year ago, but still good food served in a pleasant atmosphere. Service seemed to have dropped a little. Hopefully just a blip.

Went with a medium size group of people (seven) for dinner. They certainly know how to keep bringing the wine, sometimes even substituting more expensive bottles for what was actually ordered. (This only happened once, and the correct bottle was then brought, in the interests...More

I’m surprised this restaurant is in Tripadvisor’s top 30 in Cape Town - there is nothing wrong with it but it doesn’t deserve such an impressive rating unless the competition is sadly lacking The 5 course taster menu was ok without making me sit up...More

We were looking for a light dinner after having had a somewhat late lunch and also wanted a place we could walk to from our hotel. The manager suggested La Mouette. We were not disappointed. We started with the Burrata tomato salad, which was fresh...More
