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.

    The food and services were unquestionably the top in Australia and on par with the other Michelin 3 star places in the world. Our server, Nicole, was incredible. I could tell she cared about customers having a good time and all the dietary requirements were accommodated for. the spark in her eyes when introducing the food items to us was particularly magical that made the experience extra special. The wine pairing was ok. Nothing stood out, equally nothing I could recall being particularly questionable. One of the highlights was the wagyu beef dish that was incredibly tender and full of flavour. One problem I had was while the meat gets bbq’d throughout the night, the smoke went everywhere in the restaurant. The manager did move us to another table further away from the kitchen. I appreciated that action was taken but unfortunately didn’t help much as the smoke has penetrated to every corner of the restaurant by that point. I had to fight against my strong urge to call the night as I was honestly miserable. I don’t know if everyone else was impacted but for someone with a heightened sense of smell/low tolerance for grease, might be worth checking with the restaurant before coming in.

Room was a bit warm as it was a 40 degree day but staff brought extra cooling clothes when asked. Save up some money and go 👍

    Vue de Monde was such an exceptional place to dine at. From the service at reception all the way through to the end, there was always a waiter/waitress there to guide you like your own personal valet. Food was extremely delicate and delicious in every bite, which takes you on a journey around Australia. Staff was very attentive to detail, i.e, I am left handed and all their replenishments of cutleries are normally on the right hand side. I took notice that the staff switched this over from the right to the left for Course No. 3 onwards (it's the little things like this that creates the experience so much more enjoyable). Then there was the personal tour around their kitchen, seeing all the wonders come to life was so amazing. 100% would recommend to anyone who wishes for an amazing dining experience like none other.

    The service was amazing and the Crew were entertaining to watch with their synchronised movement in serving the food. The Chefs were so accommodating when we requested for a photo. They Crew signed a card for my daughter’s celebrating the graduation. Our overall experience will be a tucked in our bucket list. Thank you to the crew at Vue De Monde.

    Most of the food are too salty. For the sweet, watermelon one is good. but choclate one is too sweet, also the last biscuit dish is unnecessary. The best two for me are damper and marron. For the cheese plate, I think it will be better to add some fruit like berries.

    2nd time back and we couldnt be more excited. Trying different foods and wine is always an adventure here. There service was perfect as always. The food was amazing and so was the view. I wish there were a couple more red meat dishes or fish to round out the menu. The coctails were fun, australian and unusual plus absolutely devine. Our amazing waitors and somilliars were outstanding, however at times it was a bit of a challenge understanding them. We didnt want to appear rude and ask them to repeat. But we love learning about wine. We loved going into the kitchen, this was a great initiative and its interactive. We will be back again one day, pending price. Thanks guys!

The attention to detail, the care in the presentation of the food, the wonderful way they interacted with the guests was truly outstanding.

    It was our first time at Vue de Monde and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. They also catered to my pregnancy diet and the non alcoholic wine pairing allowed me to try a different variety of beverages whilst my husband had the prestige wine pairing. The prestige wine pairing was one of the better pairings we have come across at fine dining restaurants. Would recommend Vue de Monde for those who like unique fine dining experiences focused around Australian produce.

    From the very start when 3 waiters poured our 3 glasses of sparkling water in perfect coordination to the very last bite of what can only be described as exquisite food, our lunch at Vue de Monde was simply memorable. Thankyou to all the staff, on the floor and in the kitchen for such an amazing experience. We'll be coming back for more, Shannon only keeps getting better!

    Food has always been very good at VDM and this occasion was no exception. But the service was not up to standard, being very slow and inattentive. We were left sitting there without service for lengthy periods despite other tables around us having frequent visits from staff. In addition the staff provided little information on the experience at times, particularly with the wine pairing. Would find it hard to recommend others to come here.
