Blissful Barramundi

This lovely little restaurant pays homage to Spanish cuisine but has no Spanish connection. It's quite small but with a covered patio area in the street, just like in Spain. The menu is small but with a good range of fish and meat. You can choose a sharing platter of Tapas (although nothing... read more

so much choice of seemingly good restaurants in Noosa we decided to take pot luck and this was the nearest to our hotel. It was Saturday night and we hadn't booked so we were lucky to get the last unreserved table. very good food and worthy of the recommendation from our concierge.

When we holiday in Noosa we love going to La Vida on Hastings Street. My husband and adult son visited recently twice over the last 10 days of our holiday. It is at the quieter end of Hastings Street, with lovely ambience inside and outside. Food is of good quality and a variety of choice. Choice of the early bird... More

My husband and I have visited La Vida several times and have thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful of our meals. The owners take alot a pride in their presentation of food and flavour. The steaks are to die for and the seafood platter is worth every oyster. I would recommend La Vida for a traditional home cooked meal at the right... More

Not the best meal I have ever had and don't think we will be back. Staff were pleasant and the service was okay. The food was pretty yuk. We both had prawns semi sun dried tomatoes and pasta. The tomatoes were way to tart for my liking. As we both had the same meal not sure what the other meals... More

We visited here on a Monday night, the food was just ok, the service was just ok and the cost was expensive. We had wine which was completely off, I had Gnocchi it was ok. All in all it was wasn't worth it at all sadly.

La Vida was a big disappointment on the night we visited over the Christmas holidays particularly given reviews we had read . The owner or maitre'd looked bored and tired and the other staff were bordering on incompetent. The food was very average with the exception of the fillet steak which was cooked perfectly. The menu lacked diversity and was... More
