Five of us met there for a quick tapas dinner. We were squeezed into a high table with a sort of stools right very close to another table. Not comfortable! We ordered many dishes of tapas most of which were not very good. I think tapas has become too popular and over rated and not really like the real tapas... More

This was not a comfortable, relaxed experience. I went with 4 friends and we had to share a large table with another group, perched uncomfortably on stools. It was so noisy it was hard to chat across the big table. Service was efficient but it was all about getting us fed and out of there before the next sitting. Food... More

We have been to this restaurant many times over the 4 years we have lived in Melbourne. Service is top notch- efficient- but not in your face. Waiters and waitresses also tend to have a great sense of humor so you can have a chat and laugh, but they also know their stuff. Food is consistently fantastic. Small portions -... More

Went to Anada on a saturday night, after waiting about 10 or so minutes before we were asked what we wanted to drink (don't expect change out of a $50 for wine) the service did improve, however the food is over- rated, in regards to a set menu tapas at $55 a head, one small portion each, of which was...

We had dinner here recently. Small food portions with medium price to each (its part of the Tapas trend of ordering a few small plates which can be fun). Jerusalem artichoke soup was delicious. Came in a small glass though - the size of a Turkish mint tea cup. Cost was $5. They should give you the option of a... More

Ananda is simply great. The do tapas well, they do wine well, they do service well. Croquette, the benchmark of tapaliciousness are light, crisp, creamy and flavourful. The space is light and welcoming, as are the staff, with close to a fine dining experience of service. Good wine list by the bottle and glass, with plenty of Spanish beers and... More

Anada provides a taste of Spain together with a good selection of wines. Helping raise the standard of Gertrude Street.

Nice tapas place in/around Fitzroy, away from touristy areas. Authentic Spanish food but more pricey than even usual for very small tapas portions. Customized a few nice dishes, including a seafood paella. Decent service. Not very veg friendly. We had a fun evening there.
