First of all the welcome in the main hall is really not up to the standard of such a place. The lady should learn how to smile! Then the system of the menu is very difficult to understand, especially for europeans, a bit complex and when you are told you can select 4 courses, whether it´s 2 main or two... More

Plus points: Good view of Melbourne Dockland area and great food presentation. The appetizer and chocolate dessert were great. Not so good points: The 5 meals option priced at 200$ with additional 1 meal for 10$ each, I wont recommend to take the additional meals, as the additional meals were nothing special compared to the main 5 meals. Portions were... More

We did wait for a special occasion - wedding anniversary. We live 8 km from this restaurant but have never been. It is a total experience and you must see and soak it all in. Arriving on the ground floor and being escorted in the express lift to the 55th floor of one of Melbourne's tallest buildings. Then allow time... More

It was a wonderful experience visiting this restaurant. The view is fantastic, the service immaculate and the food fingerlicking good. Highly recommended.

We went up to enjoy a drink before our dinner elsewhere, as we were not lucky enough to get a booking, or to be called from the wait list. We scored a window table in the bar, and enjoyed a few cocktails and a light snack while enjoying the view and the sunset. I really enjoy a cocktail that is... More

Came back a year later for another dinner - definitely not disappointed. Still great service and food. I love the whole theatre and experience of the food. If you are after 3 courses and a stuffed belly, go somewhere else. This is an evening to take time and pleasure from small morsels of interesting foods with texture, taste and presentation... More

The food was beautifully presented; the waiting staff were extremely personable and friendly during the service. I could help feel there was an overly pretentious feel to the presentation of offal such as ox tongue and ducks' tongue on a skewer, though they were aesthetically prepared. At the end of the wonderful evening for our party of four, after an... More

My husband and I travelled from New Zealand to have our 20th Wedding Anniversary dinner at Vue de Monde. The food, staff and design of the restaurant was more than we could have imagined. Would definitely rate as one of the best food experiences we have had.

The top of the world, as you look over the city. The service was right for me, not too chatty in a situation when catching up with friends not seen for many a year. We had an 8 course degustation with no real misses. I got a feeling that there is a show being put on for you, which i... More

I have been a great fan of Vue de Monde for many years. I attended recently and was quite disappointed. The food was OK but it has lost its magic. A number of the dishes were simply not up to the previous quality that I've experienced there. We had the 10 course menu with matched drinks. We paid $90/head extra... More
