Lovely Friday night meal at Movida Aqui - booked in advance of course! Staff were very efficient and generally very knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. As is right for tapas, the food arrives when it's ready rather than at fixed times. Some of the...More

First visit to MovidaAqua and to say we were delighted was an understatement. My only criticism is, as in so many of these places, the wines were hugely expensive, so we settled for Sangria! The food though, is divine. I love tapas and this was...More

Third visit to Movida this year with colleagues and they never fail to disappoint. Great environment and the most amazing Spanish food. We had the anchovies and calamari burgers - amongst others - and were absolutely amazing. Just the perfect dinner after a full day...More

I had business lunch at MovidaAqui today.Quality food which was well prepared and tasty.I really liked the signature anchovy on a biscuit.The only problem is that a lot of the dishes are fully fried.Service was attentive but a little slow taking our order.

This tapas bar & restaurant offers a set of delicious tapas as well as larger dishes. Everything is incredibly tasty and presented in a fancy dress. Handsdown my favourite place in Melbourne. Prices are adequade to what is served.

In my opinion, location, setting and service are good, menu has a bit of a twist, I think it is directed at particular customers. I ordered the Gambas (King Prawns) and indeed enjoyed it, i would have liked this Special of the day to come...More

Maybe I'm not cut out for this place as I didn't find anything spectacular about the food. Of the 4 dishes I shared, the ones I found interesting was the bomba and the dry tuna. The service was generally fine except it took a long...More

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
