Movida risks becoming a chain, but the good news is that the food and service are great at all of them. The emphasis is on small plates for sharing, which worked well with four people who know each other pretty well. It was reasonably full...More

It is what it is. Delicious tapas, black tie wait staff, an early or late sitting but worth it for the quality of food and wine choices. Bucket listing in Melbourne.

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
