When I went to Melbourne earlier this year, there was only one restaurant I wanted to visit. Although MoVida had already set up shop in Sydney, their flagship restaurant in Melbourne has been raved about for years.

To mix things up, I won’t be writing many words about MoVida, but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Every dish we ordered tasted and looked magnificent. I loved the fact that you could order individual tapa and also bigger plates to share. That’s enough from me. Enjoy!
