We used to be frequent visitors but don't dine aout so often now, and haven't been here for a couple of years. I do recall chatting with Shannon and hoping he wouldn't drop the ball on this place when his flagship moved up to the Rialto, as it was Melbourne's best value in the ranks of second-tier eateries. Well, today's... More

I was so impressed with the food at Bistro Vue! Massive compliments to their Chefs! Our entrees were kingfish and duck egg were both so perfectly balanced in flavours and textures. The kingfish was so light and refreshing. The duck egg was out of this world. For main we had the Friday weekly special of pied de cockon (pigs trotter)... More

I went there with my boyfriend for a lovely lunch. The place is charming and really beautiful : Old French Bistro Atmosphere (colors, furnitures, decoration). We both enjoy our lunch: I had a fabulous smoked kangaroo steak with veggies and puree; He had an amazing piece of beef with a really tasty sauce. For desert: I had the famous chocolate... More

My husband and I were very impressed with Bistro Vue, from the food to the decor. It is what I 'd imagine restaurants/bistros in provincial France would be like. We shared an entree and a dessert, and had a main each - and were both very full. The tarte tatin is the best I have tasted, the the foie gras... More

Have been to this place twice, and have been very happy each occasion. The serving size is good and price wise, it is very reasonable for such quality food. The bistro is French and the decor is rather quirky but charming. Does make you feel like you are in provincial France. Service is professional yet friendly, and the food gets... More

I enjoyed a business lunch at this French resturant in August 2014. Very good service and wine list is impressive. Food was very much rustic French country style. Very good and will return again. Nice atmosphere.

What a wonderful restaurant! The service was perfect, attentive without being overbearing. The quality and presentation of food is to die for and the ambience is intimate and authentically french. Every room is filled with little knick knacks. The menu provides lots of the usual french food like foie gras, french onion soup, bouillabaisse and delicious apple tarte tatin. I... More

As a solo diner, I was given magazines and cookbooks to read, which is a nice touch. The food was very nice, and the ambiance is great, too.

Great location, great fit out, exceptional service and quality food, ticks in all the boxes. The french style atmosphere is fantastic, you won't believe you're in CBD Melbourne. The food is exceptionally good and the cheese waitress certainly knows her stuff. PROS Location Food Service CONS Momentary confusion entering the bathroom, but then its quaint and cute
