Like so many other places in Punta Del Este, this restaurant is well overrated. The amount you have to pay is well above what it is worth. I had chipirones as a starter, which were good, well cooked but the thyme sauce wasn't best suited with the dish. Then I ordered thai chicken, and the dish I was brought had... More

Of three dinners in PDE, the evening at LIFE was the best. The room is elegant, service impeccable and the food exceeded expectations. The rack of lamb was done exactly as requested, and their signature stuffed fish dish is truly memorable. A strong wine list; only wish we'd had room for postres!

Ambition is written on the foreheads of the staff and with capital letters. It's so cool when the chef and his team make an effort and are creative. Sometimes they fail and sometimes they succeed but all the same it's an experience for us. I won't go into details of our portions but in our minds we gave them 10... More

They accommodated a group of seven for the same night, weekend, without any problems. We sat in the lobby area vs the salon, which was full and looked a bit more formal. We ate a variety of items from the menu and everyone was quite pleased, and the beer and wine were flowing freely and the price still was less... More

We went to dinner with 10 other friends and all raved about the meal. So far it is the meal I enjoyed the most I had ravioli filled with pumpkins and beets with a light tomatoe sauce. It was exquisite.The ambiance is romantic and the entertainment was enjoyable but not overpowering. Reservations are necessary.

Everything I ate here was superb - I loved the seafood taglioni so much I ate it two meals in a row. Excellent service - nice wine recommendations and the wine list accommodates all budgets. Most main dishes are approx $22 - $26 and are worth it. Some of the appetizers looked a bit expensive but I really enjoyed the... More

service was really good; food excellent; wines good quality at a very good price. Had the brotola in a lemon sauce. Husband had the new york strip which he seemed to enjoy. Dessert was -- of course-- flan with dulce de leche. Yummm! A bit pricey at $130 but we did have appetizer and bottle of tannat as well.
