We came across La Vida as we were strolling along Hastings Street and had a lovely dinner for two. We shared the calamari which was cooked beautifully - not chewy at all. We then each had the prawn pasta which was also delicious - very tasty local prawns. Service was also very good. Would visit again next time we're in... More

La Vida never disappoints with both delicious food and friendly service. Sure it's not on the beachfront but still in a great location and the size of the restaurant makes it feel welcoming and you will get value for money which is not always the case at some of the other beachfront locations.

Stopped by for lunch, pretty happy with eye fillet club sandwich ( left a clean plate ) went back following night for dinner, but being Sunday a booking was necessary. Sadly, missed out .... Would recommend but for dinner make a reservation 👍🏼

As a Noosa Local, I have visited La Vida for the last 6 years on regular basis for dinner and lunch. I even had my hens event there plus family & friends birthdays and my 1st wedding anniversary . I have never been disappointed in the food nor the level of staff service. It's great to see a local couple... More

Ate at this restaurant for our anniversary at the end of October. Very pleased with the quality of the food. Very impressed with the chef being prepared to modify the daily special to accommodate my wife's (medical) dietary requirements. Great service, and an overall memorable meal/

I came here with my dad and brother for something different to try. We found the service to be amazing and we loved the meals. I tried the satay chicken with jasmine rice. I found it to be the best satay dish ever.

Having been told by relatives that they had had a lovely meal there previously, we looked forward to a great evening. We had a sidewalk table which we were happy with. Unfortunately we got a table of boorish yobbo loud mouths arrive next to us. This is not the restaurant's fault but the staff could have asked them to be... More

We sat at a table on the footpath and had a really memorable meal. The menu is quite adequate and the wines are excellent, so overall it's a real find on a quiet midweek night.

We chose this impromptu after being put off by the Indian Restaurant in Hastings St being empty. The menu and wall signs strongly promoted the tapas plate to share and in retrospect we simply should not have ordered it, although it sounded fine from the description. The oysters were warm, the chorizo tasted like frankfurters, the smoked chicken and Brie... More
