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.

Our experience at Vue de monde exceeded all expectations.

The staff went above and beyond for customers and the food was exceptional. The view, of course, was also something to remember!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Vue de monde and do hope to dine again sometime soon.

Thank you Vue de monde and all of the wonderful staff.

Had a birthday lunch at Vue ... Beautiful friendly staff, impeccable food, my partner had food allergies & had a menu tailored just for her and they were just so lovely. Went for a lap through the kitchen and met everyone who wished me happy birthday and had dessert on the observation deck with a small gift from the kitchen for my birthday ... just an unreal experience overall we’ll definitely go back again

This was more than a dining experience. This was entertainment meets food, presented by the friendliest staff. Every single dish that came was absolutely amazing and left you baffled. There was a story behind every dish and was presented like an artwork! We will never forget the night

This was an absolute dining and an experience of the senses in all things culinary. It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary, and they did know, but the staff went above and beyond in making that special day totally awesome. Every-one was welcoming. Ours was the chefs tasting menu degustation with paired wine. 9 courses of pure indulgence with magnificent wines to match. To top it off, we get a chefs tour of the kitchen and then a private serving of a signature dessert dish on a private balcony with champagne.
This is nothing short of the best dining experience we have had. It is a once in a lifetime moment. It is not cheap, but you absolutely get what you pay for. Thankyou VdM for our moment.

If you want a memorable experience, Vue de Monde is a standout, from the impeccable service, right through to each mouthwatering course. The vegetarian option is magnificent, with explosions of flavour and presentation. No stone is left unturned for your comfort, taste and overall experience. Taste everything...even the palette cleansers were bursting with flavour and the desserts and cheeses were divine....and the damper...delicious. Thank you to all at Vue de Mondegor an exceptional night.

The experience left me wanting for nothing and counting the days to my next visit.

Upon arrival you are made to feel important, it is as if you are the only person in the room. The service is impecable and formed part of what made the evening so delightful.

The experience was made more indulgent by being able to gaze over Melbourne from the 55th floor of the Rialto Tower.

I enjoyed the 14 course chefs menu and tasted some of the best food of my life.

The dishes we exceptational and perfectly paired with recommendations from the sommelier.

It was our 20th Anniversary and we've picked Vue De Monde through words of mouth. We were made welcome from the beginning of the experience. The service was exceptional, and the ambience of the restaurant was perfect. Of course the food was top notch. Very happy with the experience and will come back.

Superb.
This experience was a special occasion so the card and subsequent menu touches were especially appreciated. It would have been even better if Shannon had also signed the card;-)
We are still talking about the experience days later, so you certainly met your brief.
Thank you all again for making this experience worth the round trip from Sydney.
A special mention goes to our Sommelier from Champagne, who's name I cannot remember, but you'll know who I mean when I say Billy Elliot!

Vue de monde is an excellent place to eat with an awesome view, ambience, innovative interesting tasty dishes and the service is the best when I had lunch there on Saturday. Raj and Hugo are friendly, very knowledgable about wines, and great service. Their wine list is extensive with lots of great Burgundy's.

Amazing from the moment we walked through the cellar and were met with the breathtaking view, all the way through an incredible degustation where everyone’s dietary requirements were considered and no attention to detail was spared. This is food as theatre and we the show.

If you are considering going to Vue de monde, do it. The food, service and atmosphere is exceptional. Its all worth it. We had our anniversary lunch here, we were not really happy with the set up of our table, so they moved us to another, without having to ask. There is a story behind each dish, which the knowledgeable staff will inform you of. If i had to describe the experience in one word - exceptional.

The most superb dining experience celebrating 2 40th birthdays. Not one thing could be faulted. The staff were all brilliant and as a special treat we were invited for a tour of the kitchen and it was lovely that every staff member knew why we were there and on our return to the table we had a lovely card signed by them all. Above and beyond!
The food - WOW. There are no words. The experience was unforgettable.
My second time dining there, first time of an evening. I loved going both at day and night but something about the ambience in the evening made it a little extra special.
Highly recommend visiting for a special occasion or just to make yourself feel a little special!

We have eaten at some of the world’s best restaurants in Europe, and honestly enjoyed the menu at Vue de Monde more. The creative presentation of Australian produce was a feast for the eyes and palate. The staff were attentive and professional. Yes it is expensive, but a fine dining experience of this caliber should be.
