Restaurant Review: La Mouette

Team La Mouette

My name is Robyn and I am an addict. It has been 10 days since my last bowl of croquettes and I don’t think I can last much longer. Look, I don’t mean to be reductionist. The menu at La Mouette restaurant in Sea Point is extensive and utterly delicious. But by far the most delicious thing I may have ever eaten in my life, is their cheese and truffle oil croquettes. I die for them.

Croquettes from La Mouette

La Mouette is owned by Chef Henry Vigar, together with his charming wife Mari Vigar and business partner Gerrit Bruwer. Chef Henry is from England where I ate his food at Kensington Place on many a Sunday in the 2000’s when I lived in Notting Hill. Mari managed to drag him to South Africa, thankfully, and she mans the social media which has become the easiest way to get a booking in town.

Dining Room La Mouette

One of the real delights of eating at La Mouette restaurant is that they offer a tasting menu for the princely sum of R185. That’s for six courses of tasty treats. If you want to do a wine pairing menu, you can pay R295 and get a small glass of the best possible wine to go along with your course. I have eaten both the April and May 2013 tasting menu and it is the best fun I have had with food for some time. Don’t miss out. Make it a monthly visit. Or more often if, like me, you can’t get enough of the croquettes.
