What wonderful staff, made to feel so special AND important. Fantastic ambience, view and service. We had to wait downstairs for seats and after being whisked upstairs we were directed to stools next to the bar. After 5 mins we were asked to move - the joke was that we had armchairs next to the windows. Not ordinary armchairs, these... More

They view from the Lui bar is incredible and the atmosphere cool, hip and casual. The tasting plates divine - we loved the Wagyu burgers and chickpea fries - try them!. A great place for a light snack or pre-dinner drinks. Awesome for visitors to Melbourne.

I took my beautiful wife to Vue de Monde for her Birthday and we had a great time. The staff at Vue de Monde where great and contributed to the experience. As it was a special occasion they even prepared a desert with her name frosted on top. After dinner the staff moved us to a window viewing area and... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Vue de Monde. This was our second experience, but first one at the Rialto. Our expectations were high based on our first experience. All staff were fantastic, very friendly and explained the fine details of each dish. The view is one of the best in Melbourne. Dietary requirements were also well taken care off.... More

Every now and again one should treat oneself to something special, and Vue de Monde fits the bill. I'm not going to bore you with the nineteen dishes, each one is small, but each one is art. The staff are very friendly and the view is stunning. Most of the other reviewers have stolen all the superlatives leaving me none... More

I spent a night here back in November with a couple Mates. We drank more than we ate but food was sensational. Service is the most impressive thing here and the atmosphere. It's an awesome place to go for a drink even at the bar. When we were in the restaurant we had no cigarettes and asked a waiter if... More

It is expensive, but worth every dollar you spend. Top notch service, exclusive dishes you have never tried before, breathtaking panoramic view – you’ve got all in one. It’s been over a year since we went there for my wife’s BD, but we are still talking about the dinner from time to time.
