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.

Pretty good service, we didn't have to wait too long considering we hadn't booked and the food was good. The only thing I would say is that it's not exactly the best value for your money, it's more of a tiny splurge experience

Nice atmosphere, good food and friendly service. Restaurant was very busy even on a Wednesday night which made service a bit slow but beside this good experience. On the expensive side for tapas but worth it

A sort of local knowledge spot with few tables.
But the latin cuisine is very good, and makes it worth the visit if you like latin.
We recommend it for a quality yet casual dining experience.
