"The 6 course tasting menu was a good choice for a great dining experience – all the courses were wonderfully presented with each dish offering delicious elements. The service was efficient and friendly. Sitting near the fireplace added a warm, cosy touch to the evening. "
"A delightful dining experience which I will highly recommend if you are looking for amazing food and superb service in a beautiful restaurant. We had the tasting menu and dish after dish was just pure culinary heaven. I was so impressed by the flavour combinations and the beautiful presentation. Food fit for kings and queens. :)"
"We had a fantastic evening trying La Mouette's tasting menu. The 6 courses were exceptional. Even though each of the portions were bite-size, by the time we reached the final dessert portion, we really had to take a breather to find space in our stomachs. High quality food and service. And the ambiance, by the fireplace was wonderful. We highly recommend La Mouette to anyone willing to spend a little more - and you should definitely try their tasting menu! We look forward to visiting La Mouette again."
"We did the tasting menu and it was phenomenal! Be sure to request a seat near one of the fireplaces! Service is extremely efficient and friendly and truly attributes to your dining experience! Our favourite dish was the ravioli!"
"Absolutely delicious! Very interesting menu, alternative for vegetarians! Cannot wait to taste the new menu next month :)"
"Another excellent dinner at La Mouette! "
"Been threatening to go here for a while but just never got around to it. Finally made it there for a set menu special with wine pairing and WHAT a PLEASURE! This must be one of the Top 10 restaurants in CTN if you look at Flavour, Quality, Service, Pairings and Value for money...with an emphasis on the value for money. This is a must visit place for anyone that hasn't been and I now know why so many people frequently go back."
"Great food and atmosphere, attentive service and decent wine collection. We'll definitely be back!"
"Loved loved loved! the 5 course meal was different and exciting, and the service top notch. Will definitely be returning for their next menu update!"
"Excellent. We sat in the courtyard - stunning setting. Starters: salt and pepper prawns with sweetcorn puree - lovely. 3 people had the assiette of duck incl smoked duck breast, spring roll and pistachio crumble - amazing combination of textures and tastes. Mains: Bouillabaisse, which was superb. It has bisque-like elements - quite creamy, but perfectly balanced. Chalmar Beef Sirloin with marrow bone crust- outstanding. Moroccan style lamb - perfectly cooked, with a smoked aubergine puree and tomato harissa. Dessert: White chocolate and green tea macaroon - explosion of flavours. Delicious. We will be back soon. "
