One of our favourite local spots - good atmosphere, beautiful food and great views. But the last couple of times the staff has been a miserable bunch of people. To a point where we actually just got up and left because of the rude waiter...at our table. Pity that places with great food gets dragged down in this way by some staff members.More
Burger served with stale rolls sent back. Ordered burnt prawns zero seasoning... Because i came at night i was expecting more than the view. Employees started sweeping before we left causing us sinus reaction. Poor poor service.... Ate coz i was tired of complaining and...i was hungry...More
Being a group of 8 it’s always difficult to meet expectations. Especially during COVID-19 regulations you can’t be to critical on Hospitality. Nevertheless the team and especially Chaka went above and beyond. Whenever our travel takes us back to Cape Town we will return. Great...atmosphere, great food and great staff. I can only imagine how this place rocks when times are normal again. We were there for late lunch and spent whole afternoon with sushi, pizza, oysters and platters.More

Wow, where to start? Beautiful view, gorgeous café with amazing vibe, awesome staff and incredible food!!
Life Grand Cafe is highly recommended to anyone wanting to dine at the V&A Waterfront. Don't even go anywhere else - just head straight to Life Grand Cafe for...an unforgettable meal!!

Nice spot to sit and watch the boats go past. I had a steak and veg. Was okay not tough. My daughter had the chicken on brioche- but the chicken was raw inside And we had a lot of tears. I also ordered a gin...- served without much style. So possible only for tourists ? Not for localsMore
We used to be big fans of this restaurant. Sitting by the harbor with a glass of wine, good and not overpriced food, friendly service and relaxed music. All gone. Every time we visit, it's getting worse.
When we went today, there was nobody at...the entrance to take our temperature, offer sanitizer or take our details for Covid tracking. Inside, nobody said hello or cared about us, walking up and down, looking for the best place to sit. The waiters were not busy, as the restaurant was almost completely empty, they just didn''t feel like helping us. Fine.
When we got a menu, we only received one to share. I asked the waiter if we could get a second one, he said it's against the law to give each guest his/her own menu.
Which law might that be? - Is it really better that 2 guests who might not even know each other stick their heads together to read the same menu? - Ridiculous.
As we have a restaurant ourselves, we know the protocols very well. And what we would urgently recommend is: Replace your filthy paper menus by laminated menus which get sanitized after each guest. This place pretends to follow the protocols, but one must certainly not take a close look at the details.
Food was below par, mussels sold out at 12h30 already (despite restaurant being empty). Music used to be chilled, now more like on a teeny birthday party.
What remains beautiful is the location, but that is not the merit of the restaurant.
Wouldn't be surprised if this restaurant will get new owners, soon.More
Was there for brunch, so it wasn’t peak hour and not busy at all. However, the staff are extremely slow and because the restaurant is so big it’s hard to call them. Also many people have said that the food is over priced but it’s...really not, it’s standard western food prices so pretty reasonable. I love the entire interior design of the restaurant which gives off a luxurious vibe and the outside view overlooks the boats and yachts which makes it so lovely! I definitely preferred this one over the one in Mall of Africa.More
