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

Bistro Vue in Little Collins St in Melbourne is wonderful. Not only is the food fabulous but the staff are wonderful, very friendly and welcoming. The French atmosphere is cordial and beautiful. Just a must for a restaurant with a difference in Melbourne.

From the moment we walked through the door we were given the impression that we had made a good choice for a Saturday night dinner for two. The staff were incredibly friendly, the decor looked authentic and the food was without doubt up there with some of the best meals I've had. Starting with a couple of cocktails, delicious and...

This Restaurant lived up to expectations. The food, service and ambience was fantastic. A superb birthday experience which brought back fond memories of many trips and holidays in France. Thoroughly recommended.

We are long time fans of Shannon's but these days it seems he may have too much on his plate! Arrived at Bistro Vue, was seated, Sommelier approached for wine order and he had the worst halatosis I have ever encountered. Couldn't get rid of him quickly enough! Order was taken and I was disappointed with the tuna - it... More

From the time we stepped in the door we were so well looked after the entire night. The staff were fantastic. My niece even wanted our French waiter taken home in the suitcase! The food was glorious and the snails were to die for. Drinks menu extensive. All our questions were answered with sound knowledge by all the staff right... More

We were impressed with our initial visit to Bistro Vue, however, during our last visit we were very upset. We took another couple to dinner and they had great expectations due to our positive recommendation. We were seated at a table right next to the entry to the bathrooms! It was extremely unpleasant and impossible to relax and enjoy the... More
