For instant Spanish flair and taste, this is a yummy spot to rest and snack. Can be expensive if you get confused when paying the bill, by eftpos, as they 'give you're the option of paying a 'gratuity' which is really a tip. But good...More

I've been a fan of Frank Camorra's Movida for a long while now and it would be an unusual visit to Melbourne without having a meal there. And while it is not the most inexpensive of meals, I can say that it has always been...More

We were spending a day walking around Melbourne and wanted somewhere convenient and informal for dinner, After checking reviews we chose this tapas bar near Federation Square, and close to the very popular Movida. There are no reservations in the evening and we arrived early,...More

Be sure to enjoy the walk to Movida Next Door as this adds to the overall experience. The graffiti / street art is reminiscent of Berlin (although not on such a grand scale) but its interesting and stimulating. The restaurant itself has a nice European...More

Tapas done well. Food highlights were the chorizo bomba, the anchoa, bistec and number 1 the cream catalana. The Cava, Rioja and Alicante by the glass were great, any easy sell to pass the time as you wait for a seat.

Wanted to go to MoVida just a few doors down but there would be a long wait. Waiter suggested we try MoVida Next Door. More casual than MoVida which suited us as we had been to the theatre and were hungry. Very busy, noisy, cramped...More

Central Business District
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
