On the Financial Review top 100 restaurants in Australia list, Movida Next Door is well located on Flinders Street. It's decor blends well into the Melbourne graffiti alley. As planned, we popped in without reservations pre-flight because we weren't sure what part of town we...More

You can't book at night, but the wait is worth it. Great Spanish beers and authentic Sangria. The food is interesting and delicious. Fun night out in Melbourne. Make sure you check out the graffiti in the laneway....awesome!

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.

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
