I went to MoVida today for lunch with family. We sat out in the courtyard, under a sun umbrella on a glorious Melbourne day. My brother was offered a very stylish hat to cover his head as his seat was in full sun. The waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and helpful, recommending wihich of the delicious menu selections to try. We started with tapas, including anchovy on a crisp base with a lovely sorbet, Bomba - potato in breadcrumbs with a chorizo centre, lamb cutlet with a pork pate and herb sauce, very tender salt and peppper calamari on a rustic roll with a home style mayonnaise, and a potato and carmelised onion tortilla. So tasty, and single serve sizes so you could try more than one without ruining your appetite for a main. Tapas varied between $4.50 - $9. Mains we had at our table included a beef cheek in a sherry sauce with mashed vegetable, a baby beet salad with fromage (cheese), the best scallops I've ever had with cured meat slices and roasted cauliflower, and more tapas for those who loved it too much to order mains. If you go, you must have a mojito or two. This restaurant probably would cater for children, but it has a more adult feel and I think children would seem out of place here. there were none the day I went, but it was a weekday / schoolday.
