We came to La Mouette in November to celebrate my fiance winning an award at a conference he was at. Everything from the atmosphere, to the food, the service and attention to detail were superb. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone and...I would be back again in a heartbeat.More

First proper date night meal in ages, and boy did it not disappoint. Took my wife there on our first date 6.5 years ago, and was absolutely blown away by our meal! Seated outside on a fresh summer evening, tables nicely spaced apart, service was...incredible, and food was the absolute highlight. From the breads upon arrival, the canapes, our starters, and the lamb & pork belly mains, we were delighted with every course! Definitely going back, well done to the team at La Mouette!More

The minute I walk into La Mouette, I feel like I have come home. Amazing, warm, knowledgable staff, make you feel like you're the most important person there. The food is outstanding - with or without wine pairings. They truly make fine dining accessible and...attainable, without the pretension. We LOVED the Spring Tasting Menu. I never thought that I would dream about a soup - but hey, 2020 has been a whirlwind ;) It's also the perfect place to go as a vegetarian or vegan, as they have a menu dedicated to you (call ahead and let them know) so you don't feel like you get second pickings. Thank you La Mouette for all you do!More

We just had to taste their newly launched Spring Special 5-Course Tasting Menu with wine pairing. . . Upon arrival the staff was welcoming,attentive and effortlessly well versed with the decor, the exquisite food, and wine pairings. . . @_lamouette_ took all the Covid protocols...and made us feel safe throughout the entire experience. The Spring Special 5-Course Tasting Menu with wine pairing was absolutely groundbreaking, every dish was an experience, a mystical taste bud, - orgasmic journey.

We had the 5-course meal for R350 which is reasonably priced but honestly nothing amazing, nothing blew our socks off, most meals lacked flavour, portions a bit too small and service was extremely rushed. I would rather just pay an extra R100 for something more...flavorsome and more reasonable portions. Feedback on each dish. The menu is set for the most part (only the option to choose for starter and main). -The chicken liver and mac&cheese canapes were flavorsome however, extremely small(a bit skimpy) -The tartare starter itself lacked a bit of flavor (fish looked dull), the sauce however was good. Portion size too small. -Butternut soup was amazing. -Lamb neck dish was extremely salty. Salt on salt on salt and once again way too small. Def not going to fill up any guy. Literally, 3 bites and it's gone. -Dessert had potential but was average and lacked flavour. I think extra sauce could have done the trick.More
