What Insiders Are Saying
Vue de Monde might be tasting-menu only, but it still feels pretty casual and it has views from the 55th floor of the Rialto.
My lunch yesterday at Vue de Monde was the best food experience of my life!
I had 13 tasting plates and each one was exceptional!!
I highly recommend Vue de Monde, it’s worth every cent!
I have stage 4 gastric cancer (actually a rare form of it called Krankenburg Cancer) and the level of care, attention and kindness from the staff was exceptional. They ensured I was comfortable, able to digest my meals and adapted some of the meals so I could eat. I was moved to tears with their efforts ❤️
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!
The service was exceptional and that’s not a word I often use. The food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble.
Absolutely all round amazing experience.
Amazing! Simply amazing. Was here 4 years ago and was amaze then and going in this time we were concern the food will not live up to our expectations but we were blown away. The food was beyond our expectations. After a very disappointing night before at Attica, we were so happy with the quality of food given. Every dish has its own moment. We will be back.
Simply an incredible experience with a beautiful view over Melbourne city! The secret menu is a great idea to develop curiosity and be even more surprised!!!
Amazing view, friendly service, fresh ingredients but the broth was way too salty. The duck wasn’t cooked well. Given the feedback to the staff immediately but nothing changed. Not worth to pay $310 per person.
A truly special experience for a milestone birthday. The staff did everything to make it memorable. Almost perfect, with two small exceptions: pre-dinner drinks (Lui bar-separate to restaurant) did not come and had to remind them. Also, my view from the dinner table was a little obstructed. However the birthday person had a perfect outlook- so all was fine. The food was fabulous and we enjoyed the explanations. The extra 'touches' of breakfast and an emailed menu enhanced a wonderful evening.
The service was exceptional. The food was amazing and the matching wines were perfect
Excellent attentive service. Wonderful theatre of food. Loved everything
Varied selection of fantastic food, expensive yes, but real value when you consider the quality of ingredients, fantastic presentation, the surroundings in the restaurant, the view from the 55th floor, the amount of work required to produce such dishes and the standard of service.
Been here few years before. Had about 17 dishes for the set menu this time, they were like: appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, main course, main course, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, desert, desert and desert. Wonderful experience but just too sour for us, maybe need some mild stuff to balance, otherwise it's going to be over-appetizing.
But this is majorly a personal taste, good job Vue De Monde.
foods are good and French style as it is a French restaurant and mix a bit with Asutralian style. some courses are salty and deserts are too sweet. good table services and wonderful introduction with each course.
Duck course was inedible: texture of rubber! (What is this mania for serving duck very rare: as soon as it cools the fat underneath the skin is inedible and the meat cannot be cut). Stay with the Chinese: cook duck properly!
Some of the courses were over salted.
The kangaroo wasn’t very palatable: reminded me of the kangaroo meat my mother used to feed our cat.
A disappointing experience for such a hyped restaurant.
Exquisite food and service
Clearly a top Michelin restaurant (if you had that in Australia). One of the best tasting menus I’ve experienced, top service and excellent wine pairing (with an excellent advisory by the sommelier). The ambiance and the views are at level. If you have one restaurant to visit in Melbourne, this should be it.
An amazing experience from start to finish. Food is spectacular and the service is impeccable.
If you have a restaurant bucket list, then VDM should be on it.
Excellence is the only was to describe the dining experience we had at Vue de Monde this week. Evry dish was expertly prepared and presented, every wine pairing was just perfect, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, expertly taking care of every detail of our evening. We chose Vue de Monde to celebrate a milestone birthday, and it was perfect in every way.
Mind blowing and next level amazing!!!
I have been wanting to dine at Vue de Monde for a very long time and was disappointed with my experience. The food was average and we should have had a menu with a description of whar we were eating on the night not sent via email a day later.
This was by far, the most magical dining experience of my life.
Went here for a special occasion and the team made it exactly that, little surprises from start to finish really made this experience so much more special.
Fine dinning but a friendly and relaxed atmosphere made this a truly memorable occasion.
So it wasn't cheap but it was extravagant and abundant.
Every time we felt we could had a another one of those, the staff picked up on it and another one appeared.
The table and space was huge making it a personal experience.
Very attentive staff. Imaginative cuisine. Exceptional dining experience at every level!
The food was phenomenal and the service exceptional. The staff were friendly and engaging. I would highly reccommend vu de monde.
I have eaten in fine establishments in over 40 countries in the world. This was the best.
Wonderful large (kangaroo leather) table by a panoramic window with 55th story views of western Melbourne CBD, from Dockland and Bolte Bridge to Geelong.
Service - a constant flow of authentic, energetic, knowledgeable and entertaining foodie advisors and table staff taking care of our every need before we knew we needed it.
Food - 10 Degustation courses beyond belief.
2003 Yarra Yarra Cab Sav - best ever!
Absolutely outstanding in every way.
Always an amazing experience.
Great views over the city and food and staff were excellent
Authentic high quality fresh Australian produce. Well knowledge staff who loves their jobs!
Nice fine dining. Good experience but not memorable.
Price was not clear at reservation compared to what the bill was.
Very good, friendly and professional staff.
Great choice of cutlery, crockery, glassware... amazing presentation
Good interactions between kitchen an front of house
Wine pairings were exceptional.
Tomato, sea urchin, avocado courses a bit underwhelming.
Spanner crab sausage, duck, marshmellow, cheese all brilliant.
All the staff were amazing and the food was crazy good.
An absolutely wonderful experience , one we will never forget. Raj & Alex were superb
Exceptionally different, food that you would probably turn your nose up at, but you really have to try everthing they serve as it is all very amazing and tasty. You have to be open to different food and if you are you won't be disappointed. Food and service was exceptional
Wedding present and it was amazing
Such a pleasure to return to the Vue de Monde restaurant again. We felt like royalty and ate like kings
The service was excellent and in many ways made the night. They were attentive, but not overly and really seemed passionate about their work and making sure we had a great night.
The food was incredibly different to anything I have eaten. While we had 12 courses, they were sized not to fill but were delicious and varied.
We chose the matching wine option and were glad we did as we drank wines I would never have selected.
We loved it - a wonderful experience!
A meal to remember, and worth every penny. Exceptional food, great service, interesting wines. A perfect night.
