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.

    My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and the staff was absolutely fantastic. They certainly made us feel like the only people there, even though I am sure they made everyone feel this way. This was a dining experience like no other. The food is remarkable to say the least, and the wine pairings were absolutely perfect. I would like to add that we are not people who are able to attend fine dining venues on a regular basis, which I am sure is apparent. It was a little out of our depth and could have made for an uncomfortable experience, but the staff made us feel completely at home and welcome. This is truly the top of the top establishment.

    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.
