    Fabulous food and service. The moreton bay bugs with garlic dill and mash were just amazing. The wine list is interesting and reasonably priced.

    We actually ended up not eating at this restaurant. We arrived and were shown to our table, which was in the corner, next to the road, so it was noisy and away from the majority of the other diners. We eventually got asked if we would like some water but we were told he would have to come back with menus as he didn’t have any available as they were all being used! He did come back a few minutes later with the menu, but that is where the service ended. We waited and watched the tables around us being serviced, drinks orders taken, menus given out etc, but nothing for our table. We eventually got up, spoke to the waiter and then walked out. This restaurant has recently changed hands and the staff and menu are completely different to what it used to be. The drink and food menus are a lot smaller than before and there didn’t appear to be enough staff to cover a very busy night.

    The highlight of the meals were Moreton Bay Bugs in garlic butter, highly recommended. The host was very kind and gave us a good wine recommendation - the wine list is very good, would definitely return.

    Lovely new management and staff. My absolute favourite dish which I look forward to whenever we come to Noosa every year (and have for the last 10 years) was the Mooloolaba Prawn Pasta. The equivalent was nice but nowhere near as delicious. The entree was amazing though.

    Great food and service. Food was presented beautifully and we felt it was well priced for the quantity and quality. We rate this place way higher than Ricky’s River Bar & Restaurant, which was an expensive and disappointing experience for us. We’ll definitely come back to La Vida next time we’re in Noosa.

    The old owners of La Vida ran a very good restaurant but the new owners from Tassie have taken the food to a new level. On of the best meals in Noosa for a long time and reasonable value.

    Without question the most overpriced bowl of pasta I’ve ever experienced. $59. The pasta tasted like store bought Barilla and barely had any seafood. Total gouging. If you want a great restaurant, perfect food and drinks go to Locale, it’s (I can’t believe this) cheaper, and better in literally every way.

    Newly opened restaurant in Italian style and quality food and drinks and staff are on the ball. We would book La Vida again on a return trip to Noosa.
