    Very sad to say after a great recommendation from regular local patrons food was very bland, lacking flavour and therefore overpriced. Customer recovery by wait staff excellent but unfortunately they could not be responsible for food quality. As a local there are other options.

    This restaurant came highly recommended as a wonderful seafood restaurant but it was anything but that. Firstly, they didn’t have our table ready for us even though we had made a booking. Then, we were shown the menu by the waiter and he told us they were out of the snapper and the trout dish had been replaced by salmon, which meant this seafood restaurant only have 1 type of fish to chose from on the main menu. We got past that and moved on and ordered but then we had to wait for over an hour for our mains after we received our bread entree. We. Were. Starving. And when the meals finally came, we basically had to get our magnifying glasses out to see the food. The portion sizes were pitiful for the price they charge. My dad and I ordered the fettuccini di mare and had about 8 pieces of fettuccini. The seafood assortment was quite substantial in this dish but it was flavourless and extremely oily. My mum ordered the lobster ravioli which look like a soup with a slab of lobster sticking out of when it first arrived. The lobster was dry, tough and again, flavourless. We were then asked how our meals were going by the owner of the restaurant. We told her we were a little disappointed and she asked for some feedback so we told her the truth (put much more politely than the above review) and she simply would not take it. She kept making excuses and actually said “well you had the chance to leave when the menu wasn’t what you expected and you didn’t” which is absolutely unacceptable customer service. We would have forgiven the other issues with our evening if the owner had not been so rude and arrogant when receiving feedback she asked for. We won’t be returning to La Vida. There are many seafood restaurants to chose from in the area. Avoid this one altogether.

    The welcome and seating was very good, the service was also very good and prompt without being in your face and asking every few minutes if all is ok as some tend to do. The seafood platter we had was excellent and abundant {a tad pricey, but then again it is on Hastings St.] We will, and are, going back soon.

    All staff members were lovely!! We were so impressed. Everything seemed good but I must have chosen wrong with the seafood di marie. Seafood very salty and sauce tasteless. My boys ordered eye fillet abs said it was cooked to perfection. The fishcake was lovely. Definitely try it! Everyone is lovely.

    This restaurant was recommended by friends who were regular customers of their restaurant in Tassie. We were not disappointed, our French waiters were very personable and attentive, the wine list is extensive and the food was excellent. The ambiance is welcoming and next time we are in Noosa we will book a table for another lovely night at La Vida Restaurant.

    Disappointing service. When seated chairs weren't sanitised and we had ask for them to be clean. Waiters were fighting between themselves.

    Mixed Review, Food was 80/20.. Mine was great, my wife's was average. The service was great from a couple of the staff and not that great from the others. we made our booking for 6:00pm but when we got there were told we had to be off the table by 7:30pm. For us that was OK but still a surprise. All in all it was OK.

    I ordered a whole steamed fish that was one of the best I ever had in Australia in a long time with a generous size to satisfy two. I expected the Pacific Oysters to be larger to enjoy that salty ocean and indelible zinc flavour

    This is the 3rd time we have been there and the food choices have gone downhill but not the cost. The seafood is overpowered by the accompanying sauces. We walked away hungry after 3 courses and a hefty bill. The spirits were way too expensive !

    A disappointing dinner here after a lovely lunch on our previous visit. 15 minute wait for service after we were seated was a slow start. Wine and appetizers were fine and arrived promptly and ambiance is lovely.at LaVida . Main courses were very disappointing . My $60 whole snapper was quite dry and lacked flavor, and the kipflers were boney. the waiter offered to filet at the table, but did a poor job. My wife’s Tas-saf Moreton Bay bug was bland and tasted mostly of leek. We let the waiter know we were not happy, and were listened to patiently. In the end a few dollars were knocked off the bill ( price of the appetizers) . Hopefully the wax just a bad night in the kitchen, but it has cancelled out the great lunch memory and left us disinclined to return.

    A truly beautiful evening dining in an atmosphere of the appreciation of the finer things of life. Our waiter created a lovely mood of Italian ambience with food to match. The food and mood of the night which unfolded wonderfully. We were so pleased to have dined at La Vida. Highly recommend the experience.

    We are regular travelers to Noosa and La vida is always our first nights meal. We were greeted with being told we needed to finish by 8pm which was disappointing. Plus the $55 steak was overcooked and too dry. We expect to spend big on food in Noosa and would have been happy to eat more but the restaurant’s desire to push us through for the next paying customer took the edge of the experience. Rather than ask people to finish by a certain time, ensuring efficient service might be a better way of achieving the same objective.

    I wanted to relive memories of a classic seafood platter without the cheap deep fried fillers added to it. What I got here was all whole ingredients cooked in shell with some sauce drippings. Lobster, crab, prawns, oysters and clams enough to fill and please two very happy diners. Thank you.
