Loved this restaurant. Great atmosphere and good food although the portions were massive!! Be aware of this if you have a small appetite.... You can take your own wine which we didn't know until we saw the menu, they do charge a corkage fee which was $11 which is great if you find Dan Murphys and get a decent bottle... More

We've been to La Vida each year for the past few years, menu is consistent, standout points for this restaurant, good selection of main courses and entrees, main meals are priced around high $30s. We love the crumbed brains they serve here, not commonly found in restaurants. Quality of food is excellent and it is BYO, $11 corkage per bottle

Located in famous Hasting St, enjoy the weather and sites from the footpath tables, we dined before 6pm and had early bird specials. Very nice food and great value for this area. Would recommend.

My husband and I ate dinner here one night in early November.I ordered a "blue" steak and it came just the way I like it. It was accompanied with mashed potato and green beans. My main complaint is that it took a long time between ordering and the food being served and the food was not hot.

Bangers and mash - poor. Caesar's Salad - poor. Wine okay but not worth the money. Staff disinterested and hardly any about. I know it was lunchtime but La Vida can do better, and should. It's in the famous Hastings Street and we tourists do deserve better. Also no ambience because the place was nigh empty. Oh dear!

Had dinner in early November. After strolling up and down Hastings St, we thought La Vida looked very inviting. We were so glad we did. The atmosphere of the restaurant was so stress free and relaxing compared to other parts of Hastings St, I would have marked the restaurant up on ambience alone. But the food was also sensational. We... More

The food here is always reliable and the early bird specials are always amazing. The lovely Hastings Street Sidewalk atmosphere makes it part oft his beautiful Noosa road with it fairy lit trees. The food is basically Italian and I never been disappointed.

We were dining quite late on the Saturday night of the weekend of the G20 in Brisbane. Our reservation was for 9.15pm. The restaurant was packed inside & out. Always a good sign. We were dining with two other couples and we were an additional late invite. The restaurant had no problem with adding a couple of chairs to the... More
