Vamos isn’t just a Spanish restaurant in the heart of Melbourne, but it’s also an entertainment venue which hosts live music and dancing during its opening hours, from Thursdays to Sundays.

The cuisine at Vamos is as excellent as its live acts, and includes Spanish entradas like polenta-crumbed salmon and coriander croquettes served with chilli cream, seared scallops and Peruvian kingfish ceviche. Platos fuertes, or hot plates, consist of dishes like marinated king salmon, Basque-style slow-braised lamb shoulder or Rangers Valley Wagyu beef skewers, all served with a variety of delicious Spanish sides. Vamos in Melbourne’s central business district offers desserts galore, with unique options like quinoa pudding with honey and cinnamon ice cream providing a nice way to go out with a bang before leaving. Reservations are a must!
Great food and service but the music was far too loud and ruined the mood. This is not the restaurants fault (the band were hired to play) but it was frustrating as everyone was struggling to hear and speak on all the tables I could see around me. A few people had mentioned it to the staff but it wasn’t until about 20 mins later that we could all enjoy our conversations again. I’d totally go back but not on a Saturday late night if I actually wanted to talk to my dinner guest.
As usual our Vamos experience was great - food's always excelent and the service as good as it can be when considering the number of people that had to be looked after. Loved the Flamenco music - it just seems to fit with the Vamos atmosphere. We look forward to our next visit
The services was excellent; the environment is very nice and the place very cozy. Food was yummy although portions a bit small. La Rumba performance was awesome. A bit disappointed as the menu on their website is not the same as the menu on the restaurant; I really wanted to bite a Cubano sandwich :(!
Really enjoyed our evening at Vamos. Very tasty food, welcoming and friendly staff. The lamb was so tender! Nice decor. Great to find a venue that has Latin food and live Latin/Spanish music! Close to Parliament Station and Theatres. We will be back with family and friends! Next time will try some of the interesting cocktails! Only disappointment was the loud conversation noise from other patrons.
Excellent food, good music but the highlight for me is the friendly staff :) I have been few times at Vamos and would happily go back with friends.
Not only the best Tostadas we've got in Australia, but great, friendly service, cool ambience and, if you book on the right day, great live music and dance performances. Definitely recommended. A wonderful fusion of hispanoamerican flavours.
Great food, great service and excellent entertainment!! Thank you! See you again soon Recommend everyone to try. Only change I'd make is the sangria, too sweet.
Friday nights with live band was good. Loved the chicken dish. Very flavoursome food
