A great find with I treating food. Quail tapas plate was amazing. Beef cheeks great and creme caramel nearly as good as the ones in Spain. Only disappointment was the duck - hate the taste of burnt fennel. All in all a great experience

Dined early for our anniversary and from this experience, in comparison to the original Movida, the restaurant lacked the atmosphere we were hoping for. The Pippis were the highlight off of the menu, the flavours were amazing and we both wish we had have order...More

Liked the bar but curiously not many things on the menu attracted us. We took a selection and liked what we got but were maybe comparing it to a Spanish tapas bar. We were not hugely hungry so the tapas concept worked well. Maybe they...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
