A little taste of Latin America

Whether you're in the mood for an after work drink, a romantic dinner, or even a dance with some friends, Vamos is the place to go. Located on the first floor of a beautiful old building at the top end of Little Bourke Street, this place has the wow factor. The beautiful decor oozes industrial chic and the welcoming staff and chatty crowd set the scene for a charming night. The Latin American inspired tapas menu and delicious cocktails are produced with local, high quality ingredients, bringing a little taste of Latin America to Melbourne. Come and enjoy the live music that goes on Thursday through to Sunday, or settle down in one of the intimate booths and enjoy a drink and some tasty tapas snacks. For a night that's sure to blend good food and good times, come and visit Vamos.

Best Dish: twice cooked Kurabata pork belly served with poached corella pear and beetroot puree.

The service is friendly and the live music very good.
The tapas really didn't do it for us, apart from the croquete.
Expensive mishmash of vegetable dishes. There are better options of real tapas in the CBD.
Good place for a drink and live music

One of the finest Spanish restaurants, that I had been in Melbourne. Splendid food and service, topped up with live music. Had a wonderful dine out with my wife.
I would recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends.

Admit that I am not used to Tapas restaurants, however I have to say that the value here is negligible. Yes, nice jazz fusion music, is the best I can do. However $20 for a tiny junk of Barramundi looking very lonely on the plate all by itself was hardly enough to feed, an already well fed cat. If you like the idea of being seen to spend a large amount of money for very little return, then this is your place..If you want a decent meal for a decent price go elsewhere.

This is my second visit and using a voucher. This is at a request of a friend I took the first time. The food is once again magnificent. This is how classy tapas should feel and taste like. Prices are definitely not cheap but for the quality I would say worth it. The staff can be a hit and miss. Most of the staff this night was nice but just over worked and didn't see the many many times when we tried to get their attention until I went up to the counter and requested or get the water myself. The maitre d was the worse. The only time she cracked a smile is when we arrived. But once I produced the voucher, her faced turned and that was it. She wasn't particularly friendly and for some strange reason shot me dirty stares whenever we passed glances. Oh well.

Fantastic food, particularly the pork belly and the chicken skewers. Awesome music as well - Sol e Alma Quintetto! Plenty of tables and service was great.
