La Vie en Rose

Hello Journeyers!
Cedric and I have been living crazy busy lives and it's scary how fast you can just start living past each other. This is happening to us. Even though we are together every single day our minds are somewhere else. So I thought it would be a nice idea to start organising breakfast / lunch / dinner dates for us. You know, force us to sit down and talk about us and just relax! I went to La Vie en Rose a few weeks ago with some blogger ladies for a nice catch up and I loved the place so much that I decided to take Cedric there.

La Vie en Rose is situated in Illovo, a mere 7 km from Bryanston. The perfect spot to break away from the hectic city life. What I love about them is the location. I would have NEVER guessed that there was a beautiful restaurant when driving down that street. With their main theme being Rose and Pink it's any girls dream to sit back and soak in these lush green gardens. Not to mention the attention to details, from the pretty pink ribbon around your cutlery to the pink serviettes sticking out from glasses on the perfectly set tables.

Once again we were not disappointed. They are very popular for functions it seems as just yesterday they had 3 going on. And the day the bloggers were there they had 1 big birthday party if I remember correctly. Good thing we booked in advance.
The weather wasn't playing along yesterday, it was windy, overcast and a tad chilly. But that didn't stop them as they put up marque tents with nice heaters all over. They are definitely ready for winter.

They have a wide variety of food and drinks and their dessert menu is something to dream about. I started off with a glass of bubbly (duh). By the time I saw and smelled some of the food from the other tables my stomach was screaming at me. It was time to order!!!

Cedric had the Thriller and I had the Wild at heart wrap. The food is really very good and reasonably priced. Not one of us could finish our food. I had to obviously leave some space for that beautiful dessert that feels like butterflies playing in my mouth. The Pistachio ice cream with a shot of Frangelico. Yum!!!

This is truly a little gem in the city and I am planning my next trip there soon. Maybe even have my birthday party there...
The average costs per meal range from R50 - R170.
