La vie en Rose is beautiful. We were here at night and the garden is lit up with fairy lights. There is an indoor dining area too for colder and wetter weather. The gardens are also beautiful which surround the the restaurant. I was expecting french inspired food with the name, but the menu is more eclectic, with a number... More

I attended a large outdoor function. Well managed and first rate coffee. Wide spread and nice to see owner Yanki on site. Great venue and ample parking

Our afternoon at KCC La Vie En Rose was such a pleasure! Gorgeous setting, sublime food and great hosts! We had been missing some really great food and wine after months of travel so this was the perfect spot :) Particularly reccommend the dessert menu as well as the Haute Cabriere chardonnay pinot noir they have on their wine list...

This is a very nice setting for a meal with a large group of friends. We went there for brunch for a friend's birthday - sat at a large table under the trees and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. Definitely worth keeping in mind for birthdays, bridal and baby showers.

I had lunch in their old location in Illovo and was utterly charmed by their garden, their service and their food. They moved to the Killarney Country Club now, it is nice, the food is pleasant and the service was good. That's the problem, now it's just nice, modern but nothing special,like many other places.

I had dined many times at La Vie En Rose in Melville Road and this was my first visit to KCC. I was very disappointed. My small piece Norwegan Salmon was served skin side up? with a salad which was served in a small ramekin. The salad consisted of 6 Soggy rocket leaves. 6 garden peas and 3 thin slices... More

I did book a table, but when I arrived at La Vie en Rose, I was told I could sit anywhere. I chose to sit outside but when it started raining, asked to be moved inside. We were put away in the corner despite my booking, and told they were fully booked for a function. The writing on the menu... More

We celebrated a birthday lunch at La Vie en Rose in Sunday. Sitting under the lovely trees on a gorgeous day enjoying great food, is definitely the way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Our waitress Bianca was extremely helpful and efficient, nothing was to much for her. The food portion were very generous and very tasty. The menu has some... More

La Vie and Rose is a lovely and refreshingly simple venue with excellent service and the most delicious food. One small glitch was a bowl of cold chips. The desserts are legendary!
