Food was absolutely superb. Cute, small little tapas bar. Lovely and warm atmosphere. If you don't book ahead you can be made to wait up to 20min, it can seem longer though due to the lack of space to wait.

We visited here several times over the week and enjoyed each experience. Wonderful tapas, real Spanish flavours. Wonderful sangria. Good and friendly service. It's only small but definitely worth a visit.

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

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.

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
