A family celebration dinner for six of us. We were royally treated to great food in a comfortable environment, but the cherry on the cake was the service - during and after the meal. Thank you La Mouette!

This is the second time we visited La Mouette and thoroughly enjoyed it on both occasions. Their new menu is well thought out , intelligent and balanced. Everything on the plate makes sense. Not over complicated or too fussy. Perfect

Other than the bread and dessert the rest was average! Service is very good. No a la carte menu, only 3 or 5 course menus. Cannot understand the 5* ratings by others or a suggestion of a Michelin Star, maybe my taste is different.

The food and service was amazing. The balsamic and olive oil dip with roasted garlic was particularly tasty. I must admit, I didn’t anticipate such flavors. This may be my favorite restaurant in South Africa.
