La Mouette Twitterati

March 8th, 2011 by karen

Through some very consistent on-line twitter activity I had heard only good things about La Mouette Restaurant based in Sea Point, Cape Town. La Mouette, meaning seagull in French, was named after the seagulls so often seen riding the breeze in Sea Point.  They offer modern French cuisine with a distinctly Mediterranean flair, imitating the climate and produce of Southern France.  The team is headed up by married couple, chef Henry and Mari, who met abroad but held a dream to own their own restaurant and ended up making that dream come true in a beautiful old building in Regent Road

Unfortunately I was not able to get their sooner, but I was determined to attend their Twitterati party held on a gorgeous summer day in their courtyard.  Twitter friends abounded, as did sponsors, gifts and prizes!

Villiera wine & canapes

On arrival we had a glass of Villiera bubbly, and lets be honest, we didn’t indulge in anything other than these refreshing bubbles the whole day, other than tasting the Villiera range that was available.  I was exposed to the infamous croquettes, and take my word for it, they are everything and more that you could expect

The love affair 🙂 Elmari Swart aka @Cheviot_Publishing & Villiera Brut

The afternoon flew by and was spent between nibbles, meeting the twitterati (new and old faces abound), receiving our lovely gifts of Lemon Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Cabernet Sauvignon Balsamic Style Vinegar from Willow Creek, ultra-delightful cupcakes from Wildflour and prizes from Villiera
