A late night saviour

We didn't get the chance to eat before a show, so we were wandering around after 10pm looking for a bite. Movida Next Door was open & almost empty. They were very welcoming on a chilly night & although the kitchen would be closing soon they were happy to serve us. I was very pleased to be in a... read more

Great Atmosphere and location (on the corner of the famous street-art Hosier lane & opposite Fed Square on Flinders Street). The staff were fun and knowledgeable (our waitress, Roy, was simply divine, funny and made our experience all the better). Now to the food - YUM, YUM & YUM. Just beautiful - in presentation and taste. As the sangria flowed,... More

The vegetarian range of what was available of their daily specials was small (2 out of 12 daily specials), but everything we had was great. Fill up on their yummy bread and EVOO if you can't get enough other options! The mushroom croquettes in particular were sensational. It is well located in the city - essentially just across the road... More

Was going to Movida but they were full when we arrived at 8+pm, so went to Movida Next door instead. Was told the kitchen closes at 930pm so we only had time for 1 order. No idea how big the portions were, though the wait staff told us the mains would be big plates so we thought we had enough... More

Drop in for lunch on a lazy Friday if you dare. As the crew for the specials of the day and you won't be disappointed. Lots of great wine to pair. Don't forget to finish off with some of the execptional sherry they stock. Great place to spend a long and lazy lunch, fantastic crew and fun place to spend... More

Only down side was the price was maybe a bit high for what you got. Great experience, would we go back and pay the same for what is... More

We lucked in on a Sunday night and only had to wait a few minutes for a seat at the bar. Very accommodating and helpful staff, they really know how to manage a crowd. A bottle of Spanish Rose and 4 Tapas dishes to share and we felt like we never wanted to leave.

While in Melbourne in mid-January we went here for a late-ish lunch, during a day of birthday celebrations, having heard about MoVida and MoVida Next Door. It was amazing! There was no wait for a table and such an array of food that we asked them to just bring us a selection of what they thought we'd enjoy. We just... More

The smoked quail was a dream! Couldn't stop raving about it. The wild mushroom croquets and tinned tuna belly was really good as well. Really enjoyed the food and drinks here :)
