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.

One of those rare venues where the food always delights and surprises. That, plus the service and venue matches what you pay.

We absolutely loved the experience. The food was phenomenal, the service was outstanding and they managed the Covid restrictions so well. We felt comfortable the whole time we were dining with Vue De Monde. Cannot wait to return for another experience. The cocktails were also so well balanced and delicious!!

A truly spectacular dining experience.

Not only was the food inspired, the wine pairings were perfect for each of the many courses.

Both the vegetarian and carnivore in the party were well satisfied. Who would think that a barbecued kale leaf would be a highlight of the course!

If you are looking for a truly special celebration meal, do not go past Vue de Monde.

Wasn't offered the wine pairing menu, we would have had the wine pairing if offered.
If not service was good and food was good.

We were at Vue for our 6th year anniversary, which I briefly mentioned to the restaurant, as we completed the booking.

The moment we 'checked in' for our booking, we were given that personalised service by them confirming that is our anniversary and that apparently all of their staffs know about this. I found the staffs to be professional,yet friendly at the same time.

The experience from the start to finish was impeccable and the food were great, especially the macadamia tofu, the cheese platter, wagyu beef,cured kangaroo meat and the cos lettuce with stuffed crab! Some dishes that I truly would not even think of trying if it was not for the chef's tasting menu.

It is definitely worth the experience and I feel like you do pay for the high class service and high quality food. The cutest thing is the bag of 'breakfast' that all of the diners took home with them to mark the memory. Top notch! It was my first fine dining experience, certainly not the last!

How do we begin to describe an experience that demands the attention of every one of your senses?

Sweeping views of Melbourne create a litany of color on an inky backdrop of the night sky from the 55th floor of the Rialto building. Not even this picturesque backdrop could compete with the guided multi-sensory 15-course journey. We went from the shores of Sydney with oysters, to the waters of Tasmania with trout, to the plains with expertly reared Wagyu, to a simpler time of handcrafted cultured butter with traditional flame cooked flatbread and there were so many more in between. As with all things, the journey came to a close with a delicate separation eased with melon lined sorbet with Queensland ants offering the citrus hints of their past.

We cannot thank you enough. The attention to detail, the storytelling and the expertly paired Prestige wine offering by your Sommelier with the Chef’s Tasting menu took us so many places within your beautiful country without ever requiring us to leave our seats. It was the perfect ending of our three week holiday.

My partner and I went to Vue de monde for lunch on Saturday. From the moment you step into the dark lift to go up 55 levels, to walking through their wine cellar to get to gorgeous table overlooking Melbourne, you just know you are in for a real treat. We were greeted, served and entertained by truly lovely people. The food was beautifully presented, interesting (some a little unusual) and delicious. A few surprises throughout the meal was the cream on the top. What a great restaurant! If you are in Melbourne and love a great food experience, Vue de monde is definitely worth a visit.

A truly theatrical experience of inspirational food and matching wine; as a solo diner, appreciate the extra attention from offering a selection of books to peruse between courses (though not necessary) and the guided tour of the kitchens before the dessert courses.

The time and money spent for a lunch experience like no other at Vue de monde was definitely worthwhile. The intimacy of the dining experience was remarkable - from being welcomed in to the kitchen to eat a freshly shucked oyster for the first course, to being taken to a secluded balcony where there were surprise birthday cakes waiting for our guest of honour. The stories of fresh, sustainable produce from the chef's who ever-so-delicately assembled our dishes in front of us was an important and rewarding part of the experience. Fresh produce, culinary perfect techniques and an atmosphere to stun. Thank you Vue de monde!

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.

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.

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..
