Vue de monde is a testament to the belief that dining can be a wondrous and unforgettable experience. The ever-changing chef’s menu pays homage to classical fine dining in a modern context by exploring the beauty of native Australian ingredients. While in the past the menu looked to Europe for inspiration, Executive Chef Hugh Allen continues to celebrate the unparalleled quality of home-grown produce with thoughtfully considered dishes committed to seasonality and locality.

Vue de monde has been synonymous with Melbourne dining for almost 20 years, continuing to present an exciting and dynamic experience with a progression of flavours and sense of curiosity. The whimsical spirit at the heart of the Vue de monde menu has not been lost throughout the years, with the lighter-handed and more natural approach to cooking being no less infused with theatre.

                                    Vue was certainly a total food experience, from the moment you entered the building you felt well looked after and that a special night was ahead. The welcome was so refreshing, we felt like we were returning to a favourite restaurant. The service was exemplary and the food and wine outstanding. One of the truely memorable food experiences that we will remember for years to come. Thank you.

                                    Booked a surprise lunch for my wife. She loves trying new and interesting flavours so this was a perfect experience. The wait staff are attentive, polite, and possess a wealth of knowledge. The dishes were delicious as expected. Plates were visually intricate and immaculate. We enjoyed every moment.

                                    It was absolutely magnificent, the space is lovely, plenty of room for each table without sharing conversation or space with other diners. The service was absolutely second to none, the food top notch, wine selections were great! Everyone is so personable and attentive, shout out to Hugh the executive head chef but not that he would tell you that! Dorian on the wines, Ben, Tom, Eddy, we had an absolutely wonderful time, thank you all!

                                    We are visiting Melbourne to see our son and his gf and I booked VdM for Jaz bday. We were so looked after by everyone, the food and wine was superb and the service matched this. We have eaton in a number of Michelin restaurants in the UK and the experience, food and wine matched many of our most enjoyable evenings in these restaurants. An evening we will remember for years to come. Thank you

                                    Never been before and dubious about the pre conceived thought we will come home hungry. The 14 courses we had were all so interesting and tasteful. Ben our waiter along with the wine and side waiters all created a memorable meal experience. Save up and try for the Special occasion.

                                    I have never not had an amazing time at Vue de Monde. The staff are knowledgeable and incredibly friendly, the venue is amazing and the views divine. And then there's the food experience. They've got the timing down to an art form, and every dish is outstanding

                                    Once in a lifetime experience on our bucket list. More food than we expcted... i.e. we left full. Noice much louder than expected. Views and Service (1 staff for every 2 patrons) was amazing. Value questionable though.... the experience was worth about $350 for my wife an I imo.. but paid double that.

Thank you for making my birthday celebration in Melbourne so great and i am so glad it was my first non-Sydney restaurant since covid as it just blew our minds how great it was.

                                    It was an absolute wonderful experience the view furnishings glassware and presentation all with their Australian story, eg; the river rocks sourced to rest cutlery on. The service exceptional very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly staff. Unfortunately the price puts it out of my reach for regular special occasion visits.

                                    Food was beyond expectations. If i have 1 complaint will be when they serve the split pea bread. They had to grill it on the charcoal and it makes the whole room full of smoke. Otherwise everything was excellent!

Stunning panoramic view from our table. We loved the anniversary celebration card signed by the staff and the kitchen tour with Nicole at the end of the evening. Unforgettable!

                                    We loved our experience from the moment we arrived. We were so beautifully and professionally waited on: we were even moved next to each other after one of the hosts overheard us saying how far we felt from each other from across the table. The food was divine and I loved that there were a few 'science experiments' involved (liquid nitrogen and flower petals). We'll be talking about this lunch for years to come.

                                    This would be our fourth or fifth time dining at Vue De Monde and once again it did not disappoint. The staff were fantastic as always. Knowledgeable and attentive. The food was fantastic and theatrical. Could not fault!

                                    From beginning to end , a perfect lunch. Amazing views of Melbourne from the 55th floor. The 14 courses consisted of lovely small dishes of flavours, textures and visual excellence. Service excellent. Good value for money
