    Try Spanish cuisine in Melbourne's European restaurants

    Among Melbourne's many European restaurants, there are a number of lively tapas bars and restaurants offering authentic Spanish cuisine. At MoVida on Hosier Lane you can kick off with some tapas plates to share of salty anchovy croutons and tangy beetroot croquettes with sheep’s milk yoghurt, before moving onto mains full of Spanish flavour. Seafood lovers will surely be tempted by the zarzuela, a spicy Catalan fish stew, while meat eaters might plump for the pork belly braised with cider or lamb cooked in Amontillado. These places usually have menus of Spanish wine and sherry that will impress even the most discerning aficionado.

    In addition, Melbourne boasts plenty of European restaurants specialising in Italian cuisine. They range from popular pizzerias and long-standing family-run trattorias to award-winning fine dining restaurants like Cecconi's on Flinders Lane. Kick things off with a plate of seared scallops with black sesame seeds, cucumber, avocado, pickled shiso and ginger, before a main of open raviolo of wild mushroom and rabbit ragu topped with sage butter, or try the duck tortellini, seafood linguine or prawn risotto.
