We visited for a late lunch, ordered the seafood platter, it was very tasty, fresh, plentiful. It was a bit costy, but you are prepared to spend money while visiting a beautiful place like Noosa! :D The service was good, we noticed quite a few other customers there are regulars as they know the staff there very well.

This was a return visit and I couldn't resist having the hearty lamb shanks again, which I remembered from three years ago. They were just as good as before! The vegetable stack was a great starter and the barramundi very good as well, all accompanied by a Pinot Grigio from the Veneto Region. Great service, friendly staff and we will... More

Only spent a week in Noosa but found ourselves at La Vida's twice because the food was just great. We're really angry we didn't try the gnocchi after reading so many good reviews on it. Will definitely be on our list for our next trip. Friendly, courteous staff and wonderful food ... what more could you ask for.

We ate at La Vida 3 times during our stay and found it was a gem of a dining experience. First time I had the gnocchi that has been raved about. I concur!! I enjoyed every mouthful and even though I ordered the entree (I wanted to enjoy a dessert as well), it was quite a generous serve.... The dessert....WOW!!... More

Don't go to La Vida simple as that. The food was terrible. The attitude even worse. We got 12 smelly off oysters which we sent back after eating one each. There was no apology or even an acknowledgement. The chef then insisted we pay for the off Oysters we did eat! Not to mention the calamari that could not have... More

We have been holidaying in Noosa every year for the past 10 years. Our holiday is not complete without dinner at La Vida. The menu, atmosphere and service tick all the boxes and our kids just love creating unique art on the paper tablecloths. An absolute stand out on the menu would have to be the gnocchi and now our...

I need to talk to you all about the Gnocchi. A divine being whispering praise in the form of sweet symphony, in your very ear, would only insult the standard of commendation this meal deserves. Nay, this wasn't a meal, this was an experience. I enjoyed it so much my partner felt neglected for the extent of the meal, as... More

Me and my wife were celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary and we stumbled upon La Vida and were drawn to it's charm and authenticity that made it stand out from the other more modern eateries along Hastings Street. Jo, our host for the evening was attentive, friendly and obviously a veteran to this restaurant. She later informed us she had... More

We were attracted to this restaurant as they offered gluten free options on their menu. We chatted to the staff about the Mooloolaba Prawn Pasta and were advised that the chef substituted rice for the pasta as a gluten free option or we could bring our own pasta & the chef would cook it up. We chose to bring our... More

We stayed in Noosa for four nights last week. We dined at LaVida for two nights mainly because of their fabulous fish daily menu. (Cone Bay barramundi) Staff really friendly and food fantastic. service excellent. Great location and great menu chef - thanks - always thoroughly enjoyable.
