Get your outdoor tapas fix by the warmth of a charcoal pit

MoVida Aqui is the latest addition to tapas king Frank Camorra’s empire. The brightly decorated restaurant seats a whopping 150 in contrast to the cosier offerings of MoVida and MoVida Next Door.

Sit in the massive outdoor bar (furnished with plenty of heaters to keep you toasty in winter) and order the deep-fried artichokes with almonds or a big ol’ bowl of grilled yabbies with garlic, chili and parsley. Oh, and make sure to order the bomba - little balls of deep fried mashed potato filled with diced chorizo. Wash it all down with an Alhambra beer.
