Opening in late 2010, MoVida Aqui is our bigger space located on the terrace of 500 Bourke Street. With large windows throughout and a more contemporary feel than the original MoVida, Aqui offers a bright, lighthearted space to indulge in some of Frank Camorra's exquisite dishes. The menu offers an extensive selection of tapas and raciones featuring La Parilla (the charcoal grill) and specialising in Paella dishes for 2-6 people. Our private dining room is perfect for larger groups and can accommodate for exclusive parties of up to 35 people for those looking to celebrate with a bit more privacy.

    I was quite underwhelmed by the food at Movida Aqui. The calamari sandwich and and anchovy tapas were delicious with interesting contrasting flavours but the other dishes were less so. The kingfish with beets was bland and the wet rice with mussels seemed tired and uninspired.

    Dinner was great! Some dishes were very rich (the paellas & beef cheek with cauliflower mash), so can't have too much of it. The highlight for the night would be the pork cutlet and the creme caramel. Highly recommended.

    This was our first visit to a Spanish restaurant. Andrew, our waiter, assisted us in our menu selection and wines. His outstanding professionalism made our evening a memorable occasion resulting in lovely food and accompanying wines. Thank you Andrew and Movida Aqui.

    Food was OK but expensive for the money. Was met with a bit of attitude when we didn't order drinks or rack up the bill as high as they would like us to.
