Tried to get in a few times and only inside tables, so eventually got an outside table.

A Parma ham pizza and creamy chargrilled chicken pasta.

Service not the greatest, but food we chose was good.

We first visited Life Grand in early December when we stayed in a nearby hotel to celebrate our anniversary and watch the 7s Rugby. (We're locals.) We decided to skip the disappointing hotel's breakfast offering and visit Life Grand instead. That proved to be a wise decision. The breakfast menu is varied and makes choosing difficult. (The lazy breakfast must be the best valued breakfast in Cape Town! Be warned - go hungry!) The meal was excellent and so was the service. So much so, we decided to return that evening for our anniversary dinner. From start to finish, we had the most magical night. Oysters, sirloin on the bone, belly pork, copious amounts of well priced wine - all fantastic. We've been a number of times since, including for our son's 17th birthday together with other members of the family. Again, we couldn't fault the restaurant. We will most definitely continue to visit and highly recommend that you do the same!

We enjoyed breakfast at this fabulous establishment. The view was stunning, of course it would be at the Waterfront. The service excellent, the waiters were very attentive. The food excellent, we loved our breakfast choices! Will definitely be back!

What a beautiful location overlooking the waterfront! My boyfriend and I only stopped here for drinks so can’t vouch for the food but the food on the surrounding tables definitely looked lovely! I had a jug of pimms which was beautiful!
