La Mouette: A Modern European Restaurant in Sea Point

La Mouette: A Modern European Restaurant in Sea Point Frans Smit

Situated in a characterful old Tudor-style manor house, La Mouette combines an elegant setting with superb food, wine, and service.

Taking its name from the flocks of seagulls that inhabit the seaside suburb of Sea Point, La Mouette (French for seagull) is a modern European restaurant whose French-inspired menus change with the seasons.

Housed in an historic Tudor-style manor house on popular Regent Road, the restaurant has four dining areas, six fireplaces, and bar-lounge area where the atmosphere is warm, relaxed, yet undeniably elegant. Outside a cobblestone courtyard with a trickling water feature sets the scene for a wonderful alfresco dining experience under the stars.

La Mouette Restaurant Team

In June 2020 owner Gerrit Bruwer appointed chef Neill Anthony (who gained experience working for Gordon Ramsay) as a culinary advisor. Using carefully sourced produce and the finest seasonal ingredients, Neill creates fresh and flavourful dishes, sprinkled with Mediterranean flavour.

And, although the menu changes regularly, diners can expect a well-balanced two- or three-course meals, including items such yellowtail tartare with fennel mousse, radish salad, tom yum vinaigrette; seared scallops with cauliflower and white-chocolate purée, roasted cauliflower, toasted macadamia nuts; and braised lamb neck with harissa yoghurt, peas, broad beans, feta and mint.

A well-rounded five-course tasting menu is also available for those looking to pair their meal with a meticulous selection of top-notch wine.
