“It’s frenetic and fun…you’ll be back; it’s irresistible.” The Age Good food Guide 2013 16/20, 2 hats
In the past 10 years no one restaurant group has had a greater impact on the drinking and dining culture of Melbourne than MoVida.
Since its inception in 2002, in a humble tavern on spencer street, to its now iconic location on Hosier Lane, MoVida has promoted a culture of casual sophistication; high quality produce offered with generosity, sophistication, simplicity and world class wines and beers provided in an environment that promotes drinking as a natural extension of the provision of food rather than drinking for drinking’s sake.
“Camorra and co have created three clearly related, yet spunkily individual, venues” Larissa Dubecki, The Age Epicure
In the past several years the Movida Group has gone on to break new ground, opening Australia’s first genuine tapas bar, Movida Next Door (Winner, Don Levy Fitzpatrick Award, 2009) and MoVida Aqui. While each of these new businesses shares the soul of MoVida, they are in their own way unique, offering fresh new architectural direction (MoVida Next Door, winner, small space architecture awards 2010, MoVida Aqui, nominated, Architecture Awards 2010), and ever evolving menus to challenge and delight our customers. MoVida and MoVida Aqui both feature in Australian Gourmet Traveller’s top 100 restaurants for 2013.
