Impeccable dining experience

The restaurant views and overall experience is a 10/10 in my opinion. Presentation of food, and service is impeccable. In saying that, the 10 course menu selection just takes way too long. We were there for my mothers 50th birthday. We arrived at 7.30pm and left at midnight. If you have a group of... read more

Place like no other I have ever been to. This is not just a restaurant, you feel like you are inside an even or an entertainment. Everything is just so different, wonderful& innovative. We truly enjoyed this experience.

Staff were extremely attentive and welcoming from the front desk through to the whole team. We had a beautiful 5 course degustation. Interesting modern cuisine. It's not just about the food, it is the whole experience. Food, staff and the view.

My husband surprised me for my birthday with a nite out at Vue De Monde - I was a bit flustered by the cost of the evening but have to say it is a MUST DO! Our pre-dinner drinks in the bar offered spectacular views, truly amazing & then the ambience of the dining room was just wonderful. Our wait... More

We dined at Vue de Monde on a Wednesday night. On entering the Rialto Tower foyer we approached a desk manned by an "ex CIA operative" complete with ear piece! Pleasantries were not exchanged. After giving our name we were ushered into a "private" lift which was programmed to reach its destination even though there wasn't a designation for floor... More

Smart, classy surrounds, great service. Its quite expensive, for what is admittedly a beautifully presented, yet quite miniscule meal. But I guess you pay for the experience. In my personal opinion, I preferred Attica over Vue de Monde in all aspects, save the vue

Unique culinary experiences can be a little choreographered in Sydney, which made our visit to this establishment a resounding success. Melbourne has a different style of service to her Northern neighbour; engaging but unobtrusive. My partner was thrilled from the outset, with a great wine recommendation following appraisal of our menu selections. Feel a little bit out of my depth... More

An old business mate from 40 years ago invited me here for a quiet meal. Well.....what a venue...absolutely stunning.....food presentation, service, atmosphere to die for and my friend paid the bill, which was fantastic of him. I have eaten a long time ago throughout Europe, especially in Central London and often in the best hotels in Paris and Belgium and... More

This was our second time dining at this restaurant and once again they impressed with their amazing food. The quality of the food, the presentation and flavours were beautiful. The waitstaff were friendly, informative and genuinely engaged in conversation. Any requests we had in relation to food preferences and allergies were immaculately catered to with a smile. The wines were... More
