Visited on my birthday with housemates. We were after tapas and the waiter was very patient and knowledgable of the menu including the specials. I greatly appreciate it when the wait staff give you their honest opinion on which dishes to order and this particular waiter did not disappoint! He was friendly, attentive, very well presented and helpful. The food... More

I had a very good late night dining experience at MND, good wine by the glass options and tapas done really well. Highlight were the goats cheese cigars, and the special of the night, sous vide steak

Very nice cosy atmosphere opposite Federation Square. Very good food. Especially recommend the clams and the Beetroot salad. Wine excellent - starting around $60 a bottle or $12 a glass. Were able to walk in off the street without booking at around 8.30 pm on a Sunday. It was full but turnover was quick. They cease taking orders at 9.... More

My (adult) son and I had dinner at Movida Next Door during my recent business trip to Melbourne. The warm inviting atmosphere, the friendly staff and the amazing flavours combined to make it a fabulous night and a great way to enjoy the company of my boy. We will most certainly be back!

Movida is one of my all time favourites. Set in the very popular photo spot, Hosier Lane, you'll be sure to come across a large number of tourists taking photos in the laneway. Unfortunately they don't take bookings, so Movida is walk ins only, Once you arrive, you pick up your drink at the bar and take in the wonderful... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
