Just about perfect

Impossible to fault this superb restaurant. The cuisine is without peer. Faultless service, brilliant wine list. Go on a special occasion, but be sure to book well in advance.

What an amazing dining experience! The food, service, location is amazing. We dined here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were certainly not disappointed. The attention to detail is exceptional, and considering the cost to dine here, we were not disappointed. Will certainly be back.

A group of my friends and I were very lucky enough to secure a table at Vue de Monde during the Christmas/New Year period and were we blown away. Delicious food, tantalizing wines and the service was top notch! I could go on and on forever about how incredible the food, the wine and the staff were and to be... More

My husband and I were given this wonderful gift and looked forward to the night for months. On arrival the fellow at the desk completely ignored us as we walked thru the glass doors downstairs, he appeared to be playing games on his computer screen. Finally after 15 minutes or so, we realised we did not have to queue up... More

If you have eaten the special priced degustation lunch now done by Alaine Ducaisse's at Le Meurice in the hotel of that name in Paris then you have a point of comparison here. Food as theatre, food served with Gallic wit but here with a very Australian twist,. The very best ingredients, small portions, fine wines, professional service, and with... More

It truly was our favorite dining experience to date when we visited Vue de Monde on 30/12/2014. Not only was the meal innovative and delicious beyond what words could describe but the service was so friendly, warm and attentive it really made us feel valued and welcome which is not an accomplishment all fine dining establishments can boast. We especially... More

I had an outstanding meal in this restaurant a couple of years ago and was looking forward to eating there again, but the food is not quite as good in the new venue, the tables are quite close together and the ambience is not as strong.

You just can't beat the experience at Vue de Monde. You also cannot go to a more expensive restaurant in Melbourne though! We only went as we were given a gift voucher as a wedding present, which only covered about a third of the total bill (with only one of us having a wine match). But an amazing experience.

This is a class act from the meet and greet downstairs to the final act of the evening-the presentation of a breakfast bag to take home. Everything was sumptuous including the setting, the views, the service, and the food and wine. We opted for the 10 course degustation with matching wines and all in our party agreed that the experience... More

Excellent place for a special occasion. Staff are extremely professional, as you would expect from a fine dining establishment. Amazing service, food, views; can't ask for anything more. Except, perhaps more of that Tonka bean soufflé.....mmmm, simply divine. However, it can be difficult to get the night or time you want on the booking system.
