Stopped by here for lunch one day after reading reviews for how this was a restaurant not to be missed. The food was o.k., but not the best thing ever tasted. The price of these small plates didn't help either.

My husband and I love visiting MoVida Next Door - it has become a special place for us on a 'date night'. Food is delicious and we can always rely on it to be open for a late night meal after a show, when most other places have already closed. It is our treat! During 'peak hour' the queues are... More

This was the second time we visited, a couple of years ago, with much anticipation, we got in on a Saturday night and silly me not reading the menu properly ended up ordering tinned mussels (I think). This time 3 of us came on a busy,busy Friday evening and the wait was about 20-30 mins before a table became available.... More

We return to MoVida regularly, or rather MoVida Next Door as that's our preferred venue. Sitting at the window is the favourite spot. On our last occasion we had overdone the hotel breakfast so we had a relatively small mix of tapas and raciones.....all good. Fish ones always seem good for some reason. With a bit of rose to wash...

Wow. Great food. Great vibe. Great staff. Rapidly becoming one of our favourite restaurants, and a must visit every time we're in Melbourne. The eggplant chips are fantastic. Better still are the mushroom croquettas. Gorgeous. Trust the waiter's recommendation for the best wine to match the food you're eating. If you're going there for dinner, best to get there early,...

Once again Frank Camora's team manage to take me back to Spain in all ones senses. Food is amazing and brings upon much of the flavours and ingredients of traditional spanish cuisine. From the tapa making me only wanting more, the mushroom croquetta was crisp and earthy, the chorizo bocadillo for any lover a chorizo, and the potato tortilla was... More

Very friendly and helpful staff being able to give good advice on the food and wine. An amazing selection of dishes, the scollops delicious as was the calamari. A wide selection of Spanish wines though somewhat on the expensive side. A relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. The main restaurant MoVida was very busy so we went Next Door - glad we... More

Neither of us was overly hungry so our relatively sparse selection of plates kicked off with a tapa that’s very similar to the one I tried at the Sydney MoVida outpost many months ago. In place of the small quenelle of smoked tomato sorbet I tried in Sydney, it was a piped streak of gazpacho jelly that joined goat curd,... More

Nice wines selection with many Spanish wines to choose from. Food was very nice - macego cheese, asparagus with jamon and cooked egg, grilled chicken skewer, lightly battered sardines on a pickle, mussels and grilled lamb cutlet with pickled onion. Plates all good sizes for sharing. Lamb, mussels and sardines were highlights. Staff are very helpful and attentive in sorting... More
