Some exciting things are happening over at La Mouette…  Chef Henry has decided to do away with their old-style a la carte menu in favour of a seasonally inspired 3 or 6 course menu.

Personally I’m super excited about this change, particularly because I’ve been a fan of their 6 course tasting menu for ages now.  In fact, whenever I’m asked for a restaurant recommendation for a special occasion, La Mouette & their tasting menu is without fail always one of my top suggestions.

Another cool thing is that their summer trading hours will continue until after Easter, which means you can visit them all 7 nights of the week for dinner or over the weekend for lunch.  We may have technically moved into Autumn, but Cape Town definitely still has a few summer-like days up her sleeve, making their courtyard the perfect spot to recline & dine. 😉

And to celebrate the fact that summer is not quite over just yet, they’ve just launched their 6 course Late Summer Menu, which looks like this:
