Description: Avida is inspired by the tapas culture of Spain. We champion the wines of Jerez & Sanlúcar de Barrameda, and those made from tempranillo. We also like gin. Our menu is full of dishes designed to be shared. Plates are served as they are prepared. We suggest two or three dishes per person.

Excellent tapas, varied wine list, knowledgeable & friendly staff, great decor. Love this place. Every time I go back it is busier than when I was last there, no longer a well kept secret, but that means the atmosphere is even more buzzing and the service is as good as always. Highly recommend.

I found this place hard to fault. The maître d'hôtel is a true asset to Avida, the food was excellent and the wine list extensive. Happy to recommend.

We visited for one drink after a work day spent in Wellington, and stayed for four! I'm always a sucker for Sangria and this one did not disappoint! Only had the dukkha dish which was superb, but can't comment on other food dishes. Staff were friendly and efficient. Can see how it will get busy at the end of the week!

I've only been here once for a drink with a friend after work. We had a few rounds of drinks and a few appetizers. The service was really friendly and attentive, with helpful advice given on the wine list. The appetizers were beautiful - and I'll definitely go back to try more of their menu. Great atmosphere.

Went on a very busy friday evening. Managed to get a table but the food was only average to good. The slow cooked lamb dish was swimming in oil. The wine list is good with some good Spanish wines. Service was ok.
