We ended up here for lunch after Tastes Of Melbourne was cancelled. The food, service and atmosphere was amazing, not one complaint from our group of 6. Love the idea of Tapas to share with frieds, you can taste a bit of everything. The Sangria's,...More

I heard there was a light of hype around this restaurant and it was very popular so I went in with some friends for a quick wine and few tapas before 12pm. Service was horrible. You can not attract attention in this place despite 5...More

We stopped in at MoVida Next Door for a quick beer and tapas pit stop during an epic day walking around Melbourne. The Spanish beer was cold and went down well but a bit pricey. The tapas was divine. Try the chorizo and potato balls....More

First time I’ve been here in years and I wasn’t disappointed. The atmosphere is pretty casual and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They’ve also tried all the dishes so if in doubt ask. Next Door still does some of the best Tapas in Melbourne....More

Just as great as the first MoVida. Food excellent. We had the best waiter who knew his wines and recommended a couple of great bottles. This place is an addiction!

4 of us had dinner. Great little venue, wonderful food and lovely staff. Even the wait for table in the cramped corner of the room is an experience. Standing in view of the open kitchen you can start planning your meal, whilst sipping a drink....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
