Vue de monde
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.
Such an amazing experience, food, wine, environment, service all excellent!
Excellent experience. A definite giant step above the normal dining out experience. A little dear but totally justified given the overall food quality, ambiance and personalised care from the staff. Highly recommended.
Vue de monde is the ultimate in dining.
An exceptional experience that takes dining to a whole other several levels. You are treated like royalty from the moment you arrive and you are introduced to food masterchef style and you come away feeling and knowing that you just experienced something very unique, extremely special and no other restaurant will ever measure up to the standard of Vue de monde. Highly, highly, highly recommend. Vue de monde is where you go for that special occasion, creating a memory that you will talk about forever - the dining experience of a lifetime.
Great food, great flavours, impeccable service. Thanks!
Excellent experience and everyone enjoyed it and we would go back
Absolutely amazing - food was delicious, and different to what I would usually cook for myself! Staff knew the answers to all our questions and the entire experience was worth the price. 100% would return - I would probably dine there weekly if I lived in Melbourne!
We were a bit surprised to see we were charged for tap water it wasn't advised tap water wasn't free.
Also at the start of the night it wasn't made clear that drinks were not included in the $275 / head menu. Other then that the service and food was amazing.
We had the chef's tasting menu and it was an amazing experience. Each dish was carefully thought out and delicious! The staff are so friendly and don't make the fine dining experience too stuffy. Definitely recommend it for a special occasion. I can't stop thinking about how great it was!
Amazing experience. The team on the night really went the extra mile to make our wedding anniversary special.
Food was excellent and amazing staff that went the extra mile to make our experience really enjoyable. Would highly recommend!!
Amazing dining experience, ambience, service and food faultless.
This is the 2nd time I go back but I am a little disappointed with the overall food and speed at which the food is served.
Food wise - there were too many desserts, and not enough entree and savoury dishes...
Speed - I feel like they were rushing us a bit so they could get us out and have 2nd round customers in..
thank you for a great night the food and service was amazing
Absolutely fantastic, the food was perfect and the staff ensured a great birthday.
Girlfriends birthday although we waited 1:15min between the main and dessert with just a cheese trolley coming in that time
Wine was overly priced. Food and service was excellent, but too expensive. Fine cuisine meals and service from other comparable restaurants would be in the 20% less range.
Stunning all round experience that I would highly recommend to any foodie
Exceptional service, and the food cannot be faulted. I would however not pay $400 per person for wine as the tastings are very small.
The service and attention was excellent and the birthday dinner was therefore truly special.
The team deserves a real pat on the back.
The 9-course meal was one if the best we’ve had in over 10 visits to Vue De Monde in last 4 years
A wonderful culinary experience which was both an adventure and theatre event
A+++ outstanding service, experience and food that cannot be faulted (all 15 courses). Felt extremely welcomed, looked after and apart of the VDM family whilst we were there. Will definitely return! Well done Bennett, Allen AND team 11/10.
We went to Vue de monde to celebrate my mum's 50th birthday. The food was fantastic and each course was memorable, distinct and versatile in their own way. The service was wonderful, bubbly, and attentive. We loved how interactive the menu was (from washing oysters being shucked and choosing the dressing, to smashing up herbs(?) to make the sorbet, and putting together our own fancy hotdog). Thank you so much for a beautiful evening out to celebrate.
Chris, Sarah, Young & the team at Vue de Monde gave us a day my family and I will never forget. They went above and beyond to accommodate my requests for help in proposing to my girlfriend at their beautiful venue, and I will never be able to thank them enough. Every element of their service and cuisine made the day truly special - regardless of the proposal the lunch in that setting, with that level or service was simply magnificent. Could not recommend more highly for an experience we will all never forget.
Great meal made almost exclusively with Australian ingredients. The service was great although sometimes feel marginally over the top but still appreciated.
price point is high but I had a wonderful experience at Vue de monde, excellent food, nice scenery and the servers are very attentive. Worth the cost and is an experience worth having.
The thing that was a little disappointing was that when waiters were providing a descriptive overview of the dish we were about to eat, that the speed of verbal delivery when combined with a strong European accent made comprehension really difficult or sometimes impossible. Sometimes I asked for clarification or a slower repeat of the blurb as hearing this was really important for us.
Another minor issue was the timing of dish delivery which was sometimes fast and then sometimes a bit slow. A slightly more consistent time between dishes would have been better.
The Happy Birthday plate for my wife was really, really well done and greatly appreciated.
My most outstanding food experience to date. Service was outstanding, excellent choice of local and even local cultural ingredients. I’m saving my pennies and coming back!
Had such an amazing experience celebrating our wedding anniversary. The food and service was phenomenal and will be forever memorable. They were so accommodating for my wife who is a vegetarian. We look to returning on our next trip to Melbourne
Vue de Monde is special place, ideal for an occasion be it a birthday or similar celebration. FL 55 offers wonderful 360 degrees views. Service is fantastic and each course is delivered with fresh cutlery. Conor the waiter and Dorian the Wine Sommelier sand out but all staff are truly excellent. Food is exactly what the creator wanted : combinations of food that you will not prepare at home. Each course is better than the previous one - the cheese course (all Australian cheeses) is particularly memorable. Not cheap but it may be the best restaurant in Australia if not the World!
Beautiful restaurant. Food was very nice. But the noise level was quite high. Couldn’t hear people talking. Views were simply stunning.
Great food and hospitality. This was a memorable meal.
It has been a fantastic experience. Really good food and really good service, however the price is too high.
A memorable evening. Celebrating my 70th birthday, so wanted something special, and this was special. All aspects were outstanding.
Stunningly inventive and sophisticated - worth the high price tag for a once in a lifetime dining experience. Loved every minute.
Beautiful views of the city, coupled with the amazing service and food that was out of this world made for an extra special evening. A little bit on the pricey side but I would highly recommend going here because it is well worth what you pay for.
Had an amazing night with great food and service... they really looked after us on what was a special night for us in getting engaged!
Amazing experience and stunning food and wine. Very enjoyable. Price is way up there!
What an experience!!! Everything about it was mind blowing... the food, service and atmosphere.
Outstanding experience, the vibe was perfect, food and drinks were on point and I couldn't recommend this place more. Loved it
