An excellent dining experience in the heart of Noosa
Spending a weekend up at Noosa recently, my husband and I were very impressed by La Vida Restaurant. La Vida Restaurant is located right on the ever popular and ever busy Hastings Street.

Choosing a place to eat dinner was not easy as there is so many places to choose from. It is a bit of a licky dip unless you speak with a "local" who may give you some tips as to where to go.

My husband and I basically did the lucky dip thing. Our only criteria was that it was within walking distance from where we were staying. We were also happy with it being BYO ($11 corkage!), had outdoor seating and friendly and quick service.

We dined here for dinner and the menu had a delicious variety of items to choose from tapas and share plates to seafood and pasta. We started with the Japanese crumbed Calamari ($21) to share. This was simple but crunchy and tasty which my husband quite enjoyed.

Our choice for mains was Mooloolaba Prawn pasta ($25) with a side of seared vegetables ($9) for myself and Organic local duck ($38) for my husband.

The duck was served over a kumara mash with asparagus and an orange and apricot sauce. My husband was impressed with the tender and moist duck and flavours of the sauce. A clean plate back to the chef certainly showed his appreciation. My pasta was equally enjoyed with a good number of king prawns.

Even though the dessert menu looked very tempting especially the Poached pear wontons our stomachs wouldn't allow us to indulge this time. Maybe next...

La Vida is open 7 days for lunch and dinner. They offer an early bird special for either 2 or 3 courses if you order between 5 and 6 pm.



The weather was just right for eating al fresco and with a glass or two of red wine, our 'lucky dip' left us both very pleasantly satisfied. We would certainly pass on our recommendations to others for La Vida as a place to eat on Hasting Street.
