La Mouette is based in an old house (which once belonged to Cape Town’s mayor), oddly placed in a shopping strip at the south end of Sea Point.
A fairly recent arrival, this restaurant has been making foodie waves in the local gourmet population, and has soured to number 2 on the Tripadvisor list, after La Colombe. Unlike that fine icon, you won’t be required to hock your mortgage to eat here. Chef Henry Vigar is building a reputation.
The menu is constantly changed to match seasonal ingredients, presentation is superb, and is accompanied by an excellent wine list.
Watch for the tasting menu special run from time to time.
