After spending all week eating out having fancy meals I couldn't go pass a place that would give me good old Bangers & Mash with the most delicious caramelized onions with a side dish of 4 different green vegetables. I was in heaven. My partner had entree size Prawn Pasta with rocket so good he wished he had ordered the... More

We had the baked gnocchi which was absolutely divine. It was creamy, flavorful and delicious. We also had the all day breakfast with scrambled eggs. They were the best eggs I have ever eaten. You can't go wrong at the restaurant. Our waitress was fabulous!

We had an over night stay in Noosa while traveling south. Chose this restaurant from the "Entertainment Book" a very wise choice. We both had the Seafood Chowder, a special of the night, the stock was very well balanced with out being cloying as can be the case with Chowder, the shell fish & fish cooked to perfection. We followed... More

Started with dinner ordering Tapas which was delicious. Returned for their All Day Breakfast, not many in Noosa a feast to remember. If you want varied scrumptious food with pleasant service go to LaVida.

Friendly staff & great service. We visited the restaurant twice during our week stay in Noosa. First time I had the chicken breast & my partner the eye fillet. We agree these were probably the best meals we had the entire trip. Second visit we went back for the baked gnocchi.. Just devine! Loved every bite. The balsamic tomatoes just... More

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.
