About La Mouette Restaurant

Since La Mouette opened their doors, they have been embraced by the ‘foodie community’, and for good reason. La Mouette is more than a restaurant, it is an experience that will educate your palate and your senses, making it a venue that should be on your ‘top ten list’ to experience in Cape Town.

Drawing their inspiration from traditional French cuisine, but with a modern edge, incorporating aspects of the cuisine of the South of France, owner Henry and his Senior Sous Chef, Darren Shinners, source all their ingredients locally from the finest suppliers. The chefs pour all their creativity into every morsel, with a philosophy of quality ingredients, ingenuity, innovation and transcending the norms.

La Mouette, meaning seagull in French, was named after the seagulls so often seen riding the breeze in Sea Point. La Mouette offers three dining rooms, one of which is aptly named the Winter Lounge, a private dining room, called the Mayor’s Room and an airy outdoor courtyard, complete with a fountain and Koi fish.

An example of their current a la Carte menu reveals a few of the sublime and exquisite dishes that can be expected, such as the Fontina tortellinis, which comprise of pickled mushrooms, chestnuts, baby spinach and truffle dressing; or the crayfish ravioli with cucumber, ginger and lobster oil, and the Assiette of duck - comprising of a smoked breast, spring roll, parfait, peach, pistachio crumble and toasted brioche. The Franschhoek trout is served with lightly smoked potato salad with pea puree and mint, for mains, and the bone marrow crusted Chalmer beef sirloin is served with smoked onion puree, gnocchi, red wine ‘caviar’ and crispy mushrooms.

Nothing impresses more than a robust, innovative and decadent dessert menu, and La Mouette rises to the occasion with their White chocolate and macha green tea macaroons, their deconstructed strawberry cheesecake and a now rather famous gin and tonic dessert.
