The restaurant has a distinct French feel, although the menu is combination of home-made fusion food. Their menu has something for everyone; with breakfasts, soups, salads, starters, wraps, light meals, burgers, pastas, desserts and a fantastic wine list. There are both indoor and outdoor seating areas and the restaurant has recently opened up for dinner too!  As their website says: the core philosophy of La Vie en Rose is the capacity to view life through rose-tinted lenses; with attention to the positive, the vibrant, the pretty… and with the hectic hustle and bustle of Joburg life, what a beautiful philosophy to strive to live by.
