My husband and I had dinner here for our 1st wedding anniversary on 13 December 2015. We had the 6 course tasting menu, and as usual, the food and service was excellent. Thank you La Mouette for making us feel so special.

We have been to La Mouette a few times now and are yet to be disappointed. In my opinion, simply one of the best dining experiences at this price point. Always an interesting tasting menu. On our last visit I took my well travelled father-in-law and he was blown away.

La Mouette was so fully booked this week that we had to pay a deposit to secure a booking, even though we booked months ago! The only menu on offer was the 6-course tasting menu, although 3 of the courses did have 2-3 options. Quite expensive, by local standards, at 645 Rand each - 845 Rand with the wine pairing, which we had. Great flavour combinations and not too "fussy", nor too overwhelming in terms of the food on offer.

This is the second time we have eaten there and we were again in the courtyard. We were quite warm enough but maybe the locals were cold because blankets were on offer for those who felt the evening chill!

As we were leaving a neighbouring table of four was enthusing to the waiter that it had been "better than La Colombe". We haven't eaten at La Colombe since March as we couldn't get a booking this week but in my view La Colombe is more imaginative and displays a higher level of culinary skill. However, it is also much more expensive and, for anyone staying in Cape Town, is much less easily accessible, being located in Constantia.

La Mouette is a charming, very welcoming place with some very good food. We went for the tasting menu with wine and I'm glad we did. Some of the dishes were extraordinary (how can a tomato salad be so amazing?). Others frankly weren't so good but that was just personal taste. I simply didn't like the turnip spaghetti but I'm sure other would love it. The service was very attentive and friendly throughout.
