Dinner at Life
Went with my daughter for cocktails and nachos but decided to have dinner there too. At the last minute my husband decided to come too. The staff were very accommodating and it was no trouble to fit an extra person in. My daughter and I both had lasagne and the portions were very big. My husband was not impressed with his mussels as there were not too many in his portion. All in all good value for money though.
My 2nd visit and my partners 1st. For our main course we both ordered steak...my partner wanted his cooked medium to well done and I wanted mine medium rare,his was perfect and mines was mediun to well done also. I called the waitress over and with no fuss and very pleasantly and quickly it was rectified and can I say it was cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend Life for value, service and great food.
