Value-for-money Tasting Menu at La Mouette


Enjoy a six- (or seven)-course dining experience at this fine-dining restaurant in Sea Point.

Situated in an old manor house in Sea Point, La Mouette offers modern French cuisine with a hint of Mediterranean flavours. The fine-dining restaurant – a nominee on Eat Out‘s 2014 list of Top 10 restaurants – combines a cosy-yet-elegant setting with excellent food, superb service and a meticulous selection of complementary wines. While the eatery offers à la carte options as well as a tasting menu, it’s the latter we can’t get enough of: either six courses (R445 – or R795 when paired with wine) or seven courses (R525 – or R915 when paired with wine).


Made using only the freshest local ingredients, some of the exquisite dishes you can expect on the Summer Tasting Menu include:

  • Crispy duck gua boa, with Asian red cabbage salad and smoked mayonnaise
  • Organic locally produced vegetables, pickled beets, carrot purée, mushroom and quinoa soil
  • Fontina ravioli, with Parmesan bread crumbs, baby artichokes, tomato and black truffle dressing
  • Tuna sashimi, with fennel and potato purée, smoked dressing, mussels and calamari
    Or Ostrich tartare, with cauliflower cous-cous, pickled mustard seeds, apple and curry purée
  • Grilled beef sirloin, with mushroom cream, charred onions and potato galette
    Or Potato gnocchi, with peas, Parmesan aioli, asparagus and charred lettuce
  • Optional 7th course Cheese picnic, with buckwheat flatbread, oat cakes, tomato chutney and pickled onions
  • Melting Ferrero Rocher, with salted hazelnut-oil parfait, praline cremeux and chocolate sauce
