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.

We were recommended this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. From our initial arrival staff were fabulous, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. The food ...there aren't enough adjectives to describe! Every dish ordered was just fabulous with our favorites being the lamb kebabs and mushrooms! The price was very reasonable and I'll definitely be back!

Love the food, atmosphere(Sit at the bar you can take everything going on especially the kitchen) and the service is second to none. We usually try and arrive about 2.00 and have always managed to get in without a reservation. My husband and I are not huge eaters so it suits us fine to have lots of small serves. Presentation and flavours are amazing.

We came after recommendations from locals. Very professional, helpful and friendly wait staff. Beef cheeks, cigars, mussels and chorizo excellent. Good wine advice.
Great atmosphere and superb food for serious foodies.

Sunday lunch for 4 was thoroughly enjoyed yesterday. The spacing of the tables is not too close and the overall ambience is great. Interesting menu and we all really enjoyed our choices, very good service, lovely wines by the glass. And at the end of our dining experience that included 4 small plates with 4 pieces, 3 larger share plates and drinks, $250 was excellent.
Definitely recommend and definitely will visit again

I found the food expensive with small serves and had run out of most of the specials. Beef cheeks were melt in mouth but expensive for such small serves. Tasty but not outstanding like we expected.
