Let me confess: I am a regular at Bistro Vue. A group of us have been having irregular Friday night dinners here for the past four years. We always go back. We've thought on occasion it's time to move on to try something new and different - and we do. But in the end, we always go back. Why? The... More

We used to really like this restaurant. In fact until now it was one of our favourites. A quiet spot, great atmosphere, great food, reasonable pricing. It's got a hat in The Good Food Guide after all. Must be good. So what's happened to it? I have to admit this is the first time we've back since it was remodelled.... More

Took us a while to find this Bistro but well worth the effort. Service was great, you are not rushed and the food is spot on. It is all about quality not quantity and the flavours are divine. Can recommend the smoked Trout entree if you are looking for something to share as a couple before getting into the excellent... More

We have eaten here for weekday lunch, big group dinners, Saturday lunch and 2 big family Christmas Day celebrations. The food is always lovely, the service always relaxed but efficient, the ambience special yet warm. I find the value for money excellent, especially at lunch time but am generally not a big drinker. Having said that, a bottle of excellent... More

Recently attended for dinner. We skipped entrees. I had the confit duck which was lovely. My husband had the steak with Bernaise sauce which he's still raving about. Lovely quiet place. Would love to go back and try the delicious sounding desserts.

We had a table of 15 for dinner recently. Drinks waiter was a little slow(saw him on his phone hiding in the bar) Everything about the food was absolutely beautiful. From the bread all the way through to coffee was delicious. Steak so tender it melted in your mouth.Atmosphere was great along with the music and wait staff. Great night... More

We made a last-minute decision to try to get a booking for nine people for a quick dinner before we tackled Melbourne's White Night festival. Luckily Bistro Vue was accommodating, with a 6pm booking on the proviso we got out by 8pm (not a problem). Service was excellent. We all ordered just a main meal (except the two kids, who... More

Beautiful furnishings at Bistro Vue, which set the mood for a pleasant early dinner. After booking only 30 mins prior, staff were more than happy to accommodate (in hindsight, perhaps because you could swing a cat around at 6:40pm). As I was seated, I was greeted by some current foodie mags and Shannon Bennett's Paris book (nothing like a shameless... More

Very expensive, although good food. Overpriced, small portions. Great bread! But the most arrogant waiters you can find, including host. They give you the feeling that you have to be thankful that you can dine in their place. Never again!

My booking was missed but a calm and measured host found a table for four at our requested time I visited here with five guests a few months ago and was left a little confused, but this time, back to what I expected of Bistro Vue. Brilliant food, superb Medoc Wine and friendly, efficient service. My original booking was found,... More
