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.

A wonderful day to remember for our son who turned 20 years old. He is an
Apprentice chef himself & asked for our present to him to be taken to a restaurant that has a degustation menu. We even managed a classic
Photo with all staff taken in front of the amazing kitchen. Definitely a must for
a special occasion.

Excellent menu and matching wines. Great knowledge from the sommelier. Pity they didn’t remember we had been twice before this year.

Fantastic experience rather than food simply being placed in front of you. Delicious plates and tastings and the ambiance was posh but with local “flavor.” The staff is welcoming happy to answer questions should you have them. The view on top of everything else can’t be beat!

Great service and delicious food.
Personally the only thing I would recommend is to add more greens to the menu instead of too much sweets

Not the sort of place to go if you're looking for a cheap night out.
That said, dinner was an EXPERIENCE, which was exactly why we went there.

From every waiter saying hi as you walked in, to a tour of the kitchen, to feeling like you're the most important people in the room, it was supurb.

the food was out of this world as well - how you can get such flavour into the meals is unbeleivable.

As the courses started coming out, Dad an I thought we would need some fast food on the way home, but at the end of the 3+ hour experience, we were more than satisfied.

We went there for my wife’s birthday and we think we make an excellent choice. It was really nice dining experience, each dish was cooked to perfection and service was excellent and attentive, they brought life to this place with his effortless charm in entertaining us and getting us whatever we need in no time. Food, the view and the world class service, just can’t describe it at all. Amazing!! Will definitively come back to try more dishes again..

It's a total culinary experience. The food, the service, the view and the kitchen tour. Pity it was a tad noisy though. Maybe it's just the particular patron that evening. But overall, we were very impressed and happy dining there.

A totally extraordinary experience: the food utterly original and exquisitely tasting, the service of international class, every detail of the setting--from tables and table decorations down to silverware and glassware--a feat of imagination. Lives up to its dazzling reputation in every way.

Interesting experience, majority of the menu was seafood which as someone that hates seafood was disappointing, there are no menus so I didn’t see what I was getting myself into. Highlights where the cheese board and excellent service. I would like to highlight that we made a request for seats with a nice view as it was our anniversary, but we got seated on a massive table that would have sat 4 people right in the middle of the restaurant with a very limited view. The bathrooms are also interesting, very very dimly lit so much so that I had to use my flashlight to see!
Overall a memorable experience not one that we will not be repeating. I dont recommend vue de monde if you don’t like seafood, aromatic flavours and paying $600+ for food you don’t know if you will like.

Excellent in almost every respect. Only wish we had been given a table in the main dining room so we could watch what was happening in the kitchen. Exquisite presentation and flavours. Awesome views. Stunning decor. Comprehensive but expensive wine list. A very special treat!

I went here on Sunday 6th October with my fiance. Our friend recommended it and we would definitely do the same to others.

Although expensive it's about the experience I think. There is obviously a high cost to have it in such a great location, use good quality ingredients and the superb staff.

There has been a lot of thought put into everything about the place.

If you're a food lover then you'll appreciate it.

We would definitely go again whenever the menu changes and would be available to test if you need food testers :)

Cheers Matt and Marina.

Stunning view

Highly recommend

We were told we would receive an email the next day with the menu and the wines consumed.

This has not been received to date.

Excellent lunch, both in terms of the food itself and dining experience. We have a few fine dining restaurants around the world, and this is without a doubt one of the most memorable meals. We also had dinner at Attica on the same day, it’s hard not to compare. Attica no doubt presents more innovation in its dishes, however, to me, the most important criteria for judging a meal always comes back to the taste - innovation not for the sake of it but additive to the taste. The meals at Attica started with being interesting and ended with being quite disappointing with the dishes mostly lacking the ‘wow’ factor in its balance. Vue de monde also has some innovative elements but mostly focuses on taking the traditional dishes to the next level of perfection. The splendid view and dining experience of Vue de monde are also added bonus, however, even based on the meal alone, we will be back to Vue de monde for sure.

Everything about this was incredible. The food was amazing, the matching wines were incredible, the staff was also amazing. Sometimes I was not able to really understand what was presented due to accents, however, may has something to do with my own accent (I am not a native). Maybe a little menu with a tour of all the things presented on the menu would be amazing, however, that is the only tiny comment.

Overall it has been a one of a lifetime experience which I will cherish forever :)

We enjoyed the 10 course full experience menu. The dishes were for the most part spectacular in taste, provenance and presentation. The only suggestion would be not to serve the mini Aussie biscuits as the final course after the brilliant celeriac granita - which just cleared the pallet and refreshed us perfectly after so many dishes.
