La Mouette - Cape Town
La Mouette offers seasonally inspired menus which change regularly. We pride ourselves on showcasing only the best of local producers and Chef Henry along with head chef Andre Hill take great pride in sourcing these ingredients – respecting the seasons as we go.
La Mouette not only offers ever changing menus, but prides itself on the meticulous selection of complimentary wines carefully selected by our in-house wine list consultant.
La Mouette restaurant is housed in an original feature tudor home and has 2 floors, 4 dining rooms, 6 fireplaces, a bar / lounge area as well as a cobblestone courtyard outside – perfect for cozy winter dining by the fire or summer dining al fresco under the stars.
Chef Henry Vigar, the chef patron of La Mouette, spent a number of years making a name for himself as an up-and-coming young chef in fine cuisine in London. After also working in Australia and France, and a number of other UK based top-ranked and Michelin starred establishments, Henry settled as head chef at Kensington Place in London’s affluent Notting Hill.
