Modern Australian
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.

    What a fabulous evening, the decor (leather lined tables and fur inspired seats), the service faultless, the food delightful and the view transforming as night fell. I especially loved Hugh Allen serving one of his dishes to your table, what a treat.

    2nd time back and we couldnt be more excited. Trying different foods and wine is always an adventure here. There service was perfect as always. The food was amazing and so was the view. I wish there were a couple more red meat dishes or fish to round out the menu. The coctails were fun, australian and unusual plus absolutely devine. Our amazing waitors and somilliars were outstanding, however at times it was a bit of a challenge understanding them. We didnt want to appear rude and ask them to repeat. But we love learning about wine. We loved going into the kitchen, this was a great initiative and its interactive. We will be back again one day, pending price. Thanks guys!

    Truly an amazing experience. We dined on the chef’s selection menu,accompanied with the international wine package. The highlight of the evening was simply the staff. The attention to detail, the care in the presentation of the food, the wonderful way they interacted with the guests was truly outstanding. We will never forget our special evening and the special surprise at the end of our night. Memories are made here.

    It was our first time at Vue de Monde and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. They also catered to my pregnancy diet and the non alcoholic wine pairing allowed me to try a different variety of beverages whilst my husband had the prestige wine pairing. The prestige wine pairing was one of the better pairings we have come across at fine dining restaurants. Would recommend Vue de Monde for those who like unique fine dining experiences focused around Australian produce.

    From the very start when 3 waiters poured our 3 glasses of sparkling water in perfect coordination to the very last bite of what can only be described as exquisite food, our lunch at Vue de Monde was simply memorable. Thankyou to all the staff, on the floor and in the kitchen for such an amazing experience. We'll be coming back for more, Shannon only keeps getting better!

    Food has always been very good at VDM and this occasion was no exception. But the service was not up to standard, being very slow and inattentive. We were left sitting there without service for lengthy periods despite other tables around us having frequent visits from staff. In addition the staff provided little information on the experience at times, particularly with the wine pairing. Would find it hard to recommend others to come here.

    Difficult to put into words as this is an awakening of the senses. It is so good it feels like you are eating for the first time! 5 out of 5 stars does not do the review justice as this is well above anything else you have experienced. Sometimes I feel like I am the judge from Masterchef. Sometimes I feel like a guest on an episode of Heston’s Feasts. An adventure is guaranteed for the senses. Food and drink both.

    This was the best food experience ever. We have both eaten at some if the world's best and at Vue de Monde since Shannon's early start in Carlton but this was just amazing. We liked the sous-chefs coming to the table and announcing each course but would suggest that they be given some help with speaking more clearly and slightly slower for patrons who might have minor hearing problems.

    Well, it’s not necessarily the European fine dining experience I am more used to. The courses were good but not outstanding and many of them were lacking wow factor. What was even more bizarre is that they do not offer bottled water but only tap (in still and sparkling version) but it lacked quality - chlorine aftertaste was disturbing.

    Everyone should experience the magic of Vue de Monde once in their life - it’s almost impossible to put into words just how meticulous every step of the dining journey was. We visited for my birthday and received a happy birthday from almost every member of the wait staff and kitchen, plus a personalised and signed note. The food was mind blowing and the wine pairing was divine. Thank you to the entire team - we’ll definitely be back!

    Outstanding. Second best restaurant ever worldwide after Quince. The Marron and beef were next level. Great service, attention to detail, ambiance. Perfect cocktails, and the chefs menu was not too conceptual, which some top modern restaurants can be. Thanks PJ and the team!
