Great Tapas and Sherry

Visited this place after reading the draft reviews. Totally lived upto its expectation. Tried almost all the tapas and each of them were exceptional. Loved Sherry too. Special mention to the service, extremely friendly.

Well, when we arrived we were told we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. I didn't care and neither did my friend because we couldn't get into the other movida. So we enjoyed a nice beverage, and the time flew then we were seated! Well it was well worth the wait. The tapas were amazing, and were well... More

That was honestly the best food I have eaten in Australia so far. I really enjoyed it and recommend this place to everybody who loves good Spanish food! Melbourne has great Restaurants but Movida is one of the best! :)

I couldn't praise this restaurant enough. Frankly it was a backup option given there's an hour wait at Movida next door but we were happy to have tried this branch out. The food, ambience and the service was great and at reasonable prices. Especially loved the scallops, mussels, clams and mussels.

We went to MoVida next door late on a Friday after watching a Show. The Service was fantastic and then the Food was beautiful. Will be going back again.

Having been told to go to Movida and not being able to get a booking we went to Movida Next Door. Seating is bar stool style which fits with the tapas food. Service was very friendly and efficient. The sangria was so delicious that I had a second one. We shared Spanish omelette, lamb skewer, prawns and a really refreshing... More

Best lunch vibe. Lovely staff. Would have gone back for dinner the next night... (Closed). Loved all the tapas won't bother mentioning everything I had, as it was ALL great and the wine - something different and enjoyable. Kicked your big sisters bottom for value, service and food! Just loved all of it!! Congratulations.

We visit Movida/Movida Next Door on every visit to Melbourne and it never disappoints. The food is as good (if not better!) than what I had in Spain.

If you want to experience MoVida's tapas but not keen on the 2 hour wait, do what we did and go 'Next Door'. After a short wait we were seated and taken through the menu. We dined on snapper with mussels in a rich tomato and pea sauce, chorizo and pickled chilli sliders, grilled prawns with roast capsicum plus a... More

Wait for table of 3 wasnt too bad and we were able to have a drink whilst waiting on site. Food was delicious and fairly priced. Can always rely on taking guests here as you know you will have a good night.
