This is probably the restaurant that we go to the most as a family. The food is always excellent and the staff always warm and friendly. The whole vibe is very nice and it is buzzing on a classy level!
Just stay away from the paella it is the worst in the world. Ask for all food to be served in porcelain and not the copper pans as it gives the food a nasty metal taste.
This is still our family favorite

Beautiful place, relaxed interior but also a European feel. Breakfast is big and quick service. Also a great spot for meeting the girls for drinks and tapas!

Had an awesome experience at this restaurant, the seafood paella was Devine and the sushi was not bad either! Definitely one of the better places to visit if you're looking for a great meal and vibe.

We go to life quite often for lunch or just drinks and we always have a good time.
My husband and I go there at least 3 times a month randomly when we are in the area as it has an awesome vibe in the day and at night.

Recently we had a bachelorette dinner, and after terrible service and unhelpful staff from Tasha's Menlyn, we phoned Life Grand Cafe on very short notice to book a big table on a Friday night. Half an hour before the bride would have pitched up. They were more than helpful and treated us like royalty the entire night.
The food was amazing as always. (I would recommend the sirloin and caramelized onion pizette)

We ended up having such a good time, that we noticed we were the last table there and they had packed up the entire restaurant, but the waiters were waiting patiently for us to finish without a peep and didn't try to rush us at all.
What looked like an evening where all our plans have failed, turned around and we had the best time.

Thank you to all the staff at Life for making it an amazing girls night and start to the bachelorette.

I actually went here twice on a recent trip to Pretoria-- once for breakfast and once for dinner. On both occasions I had a great meal. For breakfast, the eggs benedict were spot on and exactly what you want for this classic. For dinner, they have a nice wine selection and a menu with a bit of everything: tapas, sushi, steaks and pasta. The decor is really cute and fresh and overall a very pleasant place to sit and have a meal with friends or on your own.
