10 ten mean ! ***

This is an amazing restaurant ! It was full, so after a wait we took a seat at the bar. We had quiet a few tapas, including the anchovy and tomato sorbet, roasted lamb, fig salad and croquet. All were delicious, when I am back in Melbourne will be stopping there again.

I liked the atmosphere of this restaurant, and the wait staff were very friendly. But unfortunately, if you're a picky eater, you might have a hard time finding something to eat. I ended up getting churros for dinner, with melted chocolate on the side. The churros were delicious, as you would expect from a place like this.

We visited this tapas style restaurant by just stumbling across it. Located just opposite Federation Square in the street art covered Hosier Lane, it is a great position to soak in what Melbourne is all about. Our waitress, Roy, was wonderful and ended up ordering all of our meal on our behalf (one of the best restaurant staff members we... More

Great place for late night tapas. It is always crowded and they don't take bookings so expect a bit of a wait however if you have a late dinner you may get lucky and get seats straight away. Although the tapas may not be completely authentic to Spain, the food is still outstanding and is a regular go to place... More

If you like Spanish food and you live in Australia then you know you have to go to Movida, everyone talks about it. So I decided to give it a go. Service was friendly but it surprised me there was no Spanish people working there... then not very authentic. Food was ok but I guess because is Movida and, as... More

Great spanish tapas, this is the more casual 'next door' bar, casual quick dining, very popular so make sure you get in early for lunch before it fills up. Small selection of vegetarian options, but good quality food. Service a bit rushed, but this is a busy place.

I feel a little bit harsh only giving this place 3 stars, as I did enjoy the experience, but it was very overpriced for a tapas bar. It was roughly double what we had been paying for our family of 4 while dining out in Melbourne, but was not twice as good as the other places we tried. Wait staff... More
