Meet the friendly experienced people behind La Vida Restaurant Noosa

Following a four night Noosa break from their restaurant in Launceston, Tasmania, Nicholas and Sarah Hooper purchased La Vida and made the move to Queensland four weeks later. They have been synonymous with Tasmanian hospitality for over 30 years. They value the support the local population has offered them through what was a tough first 18 months, and thank them from the bottom of their hearts.
