This tapas bar on Gertrude st is a hidden gem. It is a small space, yet had created a cosy and warm atmosphere. The tapas are authentic and the staff are helpful with the menu. We were unsure on some dishes, the staff were great in describing the dish. Food is great and sangria is on point.

We seem to be sampling Spanish restaurants in Melbourne and have tried Tinto in Hawthorn and Chato in Thornbury (see related reviews) so this time we decided to try Anada (pronounced Anyada) for lunch in Fitzroy not only because of the good reviews in TA, but also because it was just around a 3 blocks walk from St. Patrick's Cathedral...

To be fair, I haven't been to Spain - but of all Spanish restaurants I've had in Europe and Asia, this definitely counts as the best. The ambience can be described as cosy and charming, and aside from the great food, service was also warm and friendly - couldn't have asked for more. Be sure to call in to make... More

I've eaten a lot of tapas in London and different cities in Spain. Anada is up there with the best. Lovely decor and comfortable seating - always a good start. We had the tapas tasting menu and were served a wonderful range of dishes including tender lamb brisket, mushroom croquettes and zingy salad. Great food and great value.

Great Spanish food in a cosy space by friendly and helpful staff. A charming and intimate setting that works well. Great meal choices on the menu allowing us to enjoy a range of meal offerings. Good wine list including Spanish wines.

A lovely gem of a restaurant in Fitzroy where delightful Spanish Tapas and larger plates are served when you need them. Order as you go to share or not, and if the one you just had was way too good, order some more. The staff are very helpful and friendly and we wish we could tell you about the desserts... More

Had a long Sunday lunch at Anada and loved everything that we tried! We shared a number of dishes including the Hervey Bay scallop with pilpil & migas, pimientos del padron (we were 'lucky' enough to get the 1 in 20 hot one!), pulpo a la gallega (octopus), Alazor Serrano Reserva jamon, trumpeter with confit white beans & cherry tomato...

My daughter booked this restaurant for my birthday for 3 of us. She had been here before and liked it. However I was not impressed. The restaurant itself had a nice atmosphere , the service very good but I felt the food was a let down. The mushroom croquets tasted like mushrooms mixed with flour & water, very gluggy. The...

We had excellent service. The waiter was knowledgeable and got the right balance o attentiveness. We ate the chef's selection of tapas and it was very good. I'd definitely go again
