Wowee! We had such a magical experience at Vu de monde. The whole time we were there we were treated like royalty, from the moment we entered the lift until the very end of the evening it felt like they went above and beyond the whole time. The cocktails and view in Lui's bar were amazing, then the ambience, staff, wine and of course the food was simply incredible. We had such a memorable night, thank you to everyone at Vu de monde for making it so perfect! More

The service was excellent from the moment we arrived. They explained each dish perfectly and the young lady (waitress) was very friendly and had good knowledge. The degustation was a hit as the variety of food was extensive. The chef took us outside our comfort zone with the combination of flavours, which we thought was fantastic. The food highlights - The Quail, the fish & the Marron. More

I booked a group reservation for a busy Saturday night and I was highly satisfied with the service. Our waiter was accommodating to our group and even requested a sommelier to assist with our drinks. The $69 banquet was delicious and the portions were appropriate. Our table was located at the back of the restaurant so the noise wasn’t too bad. Overall I would definitely recommend Supernormal and would love to go back. More
