Excellent, a surprise really

Unassuming street front canopied area and smallish inside but punches above weight. Excellent, experienced staff who were very helpful and efficient. We went for the Seafood platter which was excellent and the bonus was that they didn't bulk it up with chips, just pure seafood! Good wine list and... read more

On a cool winter night we visited this restaurant and were given a seat outside beside a heater. The waitstaff were very friendly and efficiently explained the specials to us. I had the Lamb Brains (4) semidried tomatoes, smoked bacon, spinach and aioli, and the Lamb Shanks (2) with honeyed carrots and creamy mashed potatoes VERY filling. My husband said... More

The food.... Absolutely Fantastic. The Seafood Platter for 2 was very popular. But we shared the Bugs and Chicken Breast. We mainly went there as my partner loves Lambs Brains. Definitely a must Restuarant to eat at when in Hastings Street. Waitresses are very pleasant and had service with a smile. Im disappointed I ate so much as I would... More

We dined with family last week. The service and food were top quality. The attention to our two small children was great and they enjoyed the coloured pencils so they could draw on paper table cloth.

Whilst staying at Noosa for 2 nights, we went out for dinner at La Vida on Hasting Street, checked out the menu which was impressive and and decide to take a chance and order the eye fillet steak which under normal circumstances I usually avoid these days when ever out at restaurants as i am nearly always very disappointed with...

I Didn't plan to dine in this restaurant and came across it accidentally. It was worth stoping by food was beautiful and service was good as well. Will go back there again on my next visit. The only criticism they could of have a nice music for ambience.

Portion size was good but the featured duck was over cooked. The meals came out quickly which may suit some but wasn't what we were lookin for.

On par with the best dinner ever. Seafood platter was huge and all delicious, while sticky date pudding was to die for. Service could not have been better. Definitely coming back to try the rest of the menu. Would highly recommend!
