Ps we had a swell time at this "new" trendy place in Beacon Bay...it has great ambience which of course fosters nice banter& good conversation.They serve divinely delicious meals ! The waitrons , almost regimental in their swooshing amongst the tables.You'd be forgiven if you mistake that they are about 3 times their number due to their prompt attention & concierge-like know-how.Last but not least the Winelist is non pretentious & very well sourced! NB. " new " because of new ownership...they have kept a lot of the niceties which makes this place special.

Excellent food, Great wine, but the most important it was the best service I had in South African restaurant. Waitress are well mannered and trained and definitely know what they doing and what they talking about. Very seldom you have that.

Always great to dine here and it offers nice quiet surroundings to have that important business meeting over a delicious meal like they do time and again at LA Cuisinette.The wine list is well picked out by the discerning owner/sommelier.

A recent dinner with 3 friends was my first outing to La Cuisinette. The incredibly slow service was offset by a pleasant and intimate dining atmosphere and an amazing wine selection with some highly drinkable value for money options. (And you can get bottles or even cases of wine to takeaway - amazing!). Although I had called that same day to ensure there was a fish option (and was told yes), there in fact was no fish available that day for dinner. So I chose two starters for my dinner - a prawn dish, gratineed with cheese and a goat cheese salad. Both were delicious and together were quite a filling meal. Two friends chose the hamburger which they gave big thumbs up. I'll definitely give La Cuisinette another try. But between the limited menu selection and very slow service that was on offer that particular evening, I'd give it a definite good rating but not a great one.
