They say: The La Mouette philosophy is simple – finer dining with integrity. We’re named after the seagulls so often seen riding the breeze in Seapoint. We offer modern French cuisine with a distinctly Mediterranean flair, imitating the climate and produce of Southern France. La Mouette offers three dining rooms, one of which is aptly named the Winter Lounge. A Private Dining room, called the Mayor’s Room and an airy outdoor courtyard, complete with a fountain and 13 Koi, as well as five fireplaces inside, gives La Mouette a perfect atmosphere in both summer and winter.
Parker Cottage Guesthouse says: Taking a beautiful mayoral mansion (like Parker) out of its dismal nightclub days and turning it into a real venue (not just a place to eat) isn’t easy and Henri, Mari and Gerrit have really done this so well. Here, you’re going to be surrounded by Capetonians, greated at the gate by a doorman and actually hosted by Gerrit throughout the evening, not merely served. Expect homely cooking, some experimental flavours but generally informal and honest food and lots of smiles. Excellent wine pairing too, we think, without the snobbishness and pomp.
