Description: When we opened the doors to MoVida in Hosier lane, Melbourne in 2003 no one knew what to expect. Here was this little bar on a graffiti covered cobbled lane near the cathedral serving Spanish tapas and shared plates in a down lit room playing funky tunes. It's the kind of place you can come in for a beer and a jamon croquetta at the bar and then move across to a table and share a plate of slow braised lamb, some patatas a lo pobre and down some seriously good Spanish red wine.

Loved the tapas and the platters. Tasted v authentic. Staff though weren't that attentive to clients. It wasnt full when I visited at lunch but had to get the attention of staff several times before being noticed. pretty annoying as i was seated by the bar. ( i hope it wasn't because i am asian)

What a treat not cheap but worth it. The place had a great vibe every one seemed to be happy and enyoing them self.
We had a few tapas but the morsels where the crowning. Like said before not cheap but then what is cheap in Melbourne??
Over all rated in the top 3 on our short trip down under.

What can I say, Tapas from heaven. Not cheap but you can try the most innovative and delectable morsels imaginable. You will not forget your visit to MoVida I can assure you.
