Long a favourite, and with good reason, Frank Camorra’s tapas bar changed the way Melburnians dined. If the restaurant was fully booked that was okay – you could put your name down for a spot at the bar. Now you’ll find folks sitting up at the bar sharing plates of food right across the city. It’s the perfect scenario for tapas, which is what MoVida does best. Make sure to order at least one anchoa (a Calabrian anchovy on toast with smoked tomato sorbet) and the bocadillo (a toasted sandwich made from brioche, pate and Pedro Ximenez foam) is a must-try. Pair with a glass of tempranillo from Rioja for a taste of Spain in a street art-strewn lane in mid-Melbourne.


Hosier is one of Melbourne’s most famous laneways. Nearby you’ll also find Federation Square and Hosier also intersects with ultra-hip Flinders Lane.
