      Went there on Saturday it was busy, full inside and out. The service was excellent, personal and they didn't miss a beat. We've eaten here numerous times and the experience has always been first rate. The scotch fillet was amazing as was the salmon.

      Have dined here many times but seems to have gone downhill. Service was really terrible last time we went and we didn't enjoy the dining experience at all. Unlikely to go back again.

      Excellent, as usual - one of the best restaurants on the northern beaches.

      I just love this restaurant and eat there regularly for breakfasts and lunches. Besides delicious food and presentation, the view back to Dee Why beach is spectacular. The tables and chairs are arranged in such a way that you are not listening in to other conversations and there is space between the chairs so you can move freely. Highly recommended.

      Great food and service, even though it was very busy being Fathers Day the staff didn't miss a thing (very attentative), nice view of the beach from our table by the window, lovely, will definately be back.

      A very enjoyable experience, the food was excellent the best seafood marinara I have ever had. The only suggestion for the restaurant would be to put couple tables away from the large group tables as it was a little noisy but apart from that the service was fantastic.

      A great night out. Great food and service (friendly and warm). Furthermore, you can hear each other talking, you don't have to yell. Well done, Sea la vie. Highly Recommended.

      The food was very good, with quite large portions. Definite value for money. It wasn't as full as I expected it to be on a Friday night, but I suspect this is because of it's location - it doesn't directly face the beach. Service was fine, nothing to complain about. Overall a pleasant place to eat.

      Just came back from a night out at Sea La Vie - great food, exceptional staff, great place to catch up with friends and enjoy friendly service. We tried the scotch fillet and the slamon - both were cooked to perfection and very tasty - followed by a beautiful chocolate pudding and great coffee. Brett & Judi January, 2008

      Went down there Sunday morning, overall service and food quality was top notch in a really competitive area

      The food and service my wife and I received was exceptional. My wife had the Salmon Fillet and made "mmmm" noises all the way through. I had the Lamb Shanks - these were the best I've ever had. To top our dinner off we drank a bottle of their Petersons Shiraz, which was like velvet. We'll be back soon.
