Spanish tapas and shared plates

When MoVida first opened its doors, no one quite knew what to expect... a little bar on a graffiti-covered lane, serving Spanish tapas and shared plates... but it worked. MoVida launched to critical acclaim, with chef Frank Camorra and his team introducing Melbourne – and Australia – to Spanish tapas and raciones. Now, MoVida has arrived in the heart of Britomart too! 

Since 2003, MoVida has been an international restaurant known for its great food, drinks list and most importantly, a sense of theatre and fun. Using the best possible seasonal produce, their dishes showcase and celebrate Spanish food, culture and flavours. Iconic tapas sit alongside newer additions with ever-changing daily specials. Prepare to be wowed as you enjoy alongside iconic views out to the Waitematā Harbour and beyond.
