Impeccable

As one would expect from the Shannon Bennett dynasty this restaurant exudes class and professionalism. It's at the top of it's game for the market its targeting. Delightful experience and have no hesitation in returning.

I have reviewed the TART TATIN at Bistro Vue twice before. It didn't seem possible that it could ever be improved on. However, this time, a fresh batch was just coming out of the oven ! Indescribable delight. Chewy, moist, not too sweet, caramelised apples without the flavour being overpowered by 'caramel'. Complimented by a perfect cup of English Breakfast... More

An impromptu early dinner on a Saturday night. Beautiful French Provincial setting and atmosphere, exceptional service and exquisite food. Will definitely be returning to Bistro Vue. Steak tartare was perfect, the veal milanese was exceptional. And the desserts! Le Magnifique!

I had dinner with friends and was truly satisfied with the food of course, service, the wine selection and the knowledge of the staff in terms of recommendations and wines. The place is cozy, ( tables a bit too close to each other, which is not pleasant) , and lively. The pork dish I had was excelent but the Tarte... More

Bistro Vue is a Great place. It's easy to find and it's a pleasure to find a nice and soft atmosphere for a good dinner on Good Friday's evening. The food is refined: We had the Foie Gras baked in Brioche as an entrée. Oh. My. It is definitely The Real Stuff. The melting thing in your mouth, salty, tasty,... More

I have never eaten three courses at a restaurant and walked away thinking that was amazing ..... Until I dined at Bistro Vue. All courses for myself and my husband were the most tastiest and beautifully presented meals. I just wished I lived here to go back again and again. The staff were exceptional too. Fantastic work Bistro Vue!!

Our booking at Bistro Vue for our anniversary dinner was made 5 weeks prior to the day. On arrival we were shown to the back room. Nice table apart from the techno noise being blasted into the room from the speaker right above us, therefore unable to have a conversation let alone hear the waiter. Suffice to say the manager...

Arrived around 830pm on an eventful night and the restaurant uad a good crowd in the dinning area. The decor was beautiful and ambiance delightful. If you're looking for a place in the CBD with style then visit. It was extremely easy to order a drink at the bar.

We had the express luncheon special and chose the appetiser and main options. Soft shell crab was quite good as a starter; but pork main was too salty. The was exacerbated by our (poor) choice to have frittes as a side which were way too salty. This spoilt what was otherwise a good value meal.

From the moment we entered Bistro Vue we could tell that this was going to be a night to remember. All of the staff were very attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Our party of four had 3 courses each and not one of the dishes disappointed. The portion sizes are larger than the average 5 star restaurant, without being... More
