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.

Innovative and tasty tapas! Include sea urchin, wagyu beef, veal tongue, beef cheek, duck liver, artichokes..... Must book at least two weeks in advance or try early walk-ins

Brilliant place... Awesome food and wines... Wonderful atmosphere, hard to get a seat thou... Worth trying for sure. One of those inner city hip joints, what a great venture - thanks Movida for bringing Spain to a lane in Melbourne.

Luckily I got there right on 12 noon when they open the doors. There was a queue. I ate a delicious meal - especially remember the endive & orange salad with a beautiful dressing.

Went here on a Friday night, arrived at about 7.00 as was told they could fit us in at 8.45. We left our name and number and they said they would contact us if it was any earlier. We went off to have few drinks at a bar and came back at 8.45 where we were promptly escorted to the bar to eat. Great to see all the action. Food is tapas style so small portions. The pate was so smooth and the foam that went with just amazing. I sipped on Spanish Apple Cider, and kept the cute little green bottles it came in! It was reasonable value at $130 for the 2 of us. Will be back!
