AMAZING!

Perfect meal - the best service I have ever experienced! Meal prepared to perfection. Even the black pudding was great! Recommend trying the 'snickers bar'.

A little taste of France in the heart of Melbourne! We've spent a lot of time in France and love it. We visited Bistro Vue and loved it. Décor / Ambiance: sensational replication of a true French bistro Food: brilliant selection and fantastic quality. Loved the ducks egg / pigs jowl dish - such depth of flavour and balance. The...

We visited Bistro Vue with friends from Sydney tonight Perhaps we should have been forewarned by the number of empty tables, The waiter made several clumsy attempts at humour and was otherwise OK. The snails were average with perhaps too little garlic butter. My ox tail was passable without being memorable accompanied with a delicious mashed potato/cheese custard. My wife's... More

This restaurant lived up to all my expectations and more. The decor is gorgeous, the ambience pleasant. Then there is the food. It is sensational. The classic french dishes are crafted into modern cuisine whilst maintaining the flavour. The duck leg confit is delicious, as is the kangaroo loin. But most delicious is the bistro vue snickers for dessert. Highly... More

The food is as you would expect: superb. The service is A grade. I mean what more can you say? It's not cheap but it is worth it. I will say that with the décor they have gone for the rustic French provincial bistro look, and they have done it well, but that sort of thing always looks naff to... More

Vue is located beautiful old building and the restaurant has great rustic decoration, so the atmosphere is amazing, you really enjoy by sitting there. Also the food is great, I can’t say anything bad about that. I take the onion soup by starter, pork belly and black pudding by main and tarte tatin by desert and all of them was... More

In a time of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine inundating Melbourne, it is a delight to find a real French Bistro, similar to those in Paris. The menu and service first class, with charming waiters full of wine knowledge.

Monday plat du jour, Bouillbaisse. Lovely wine, salad, bread and a super Bou. Good value. Like to try every plat du jour. Now know where to go in Melbourne for great French food on irregular visits to Melbourne. French scholar friend approved too. Poached salmon and sorrel sauce on Thursday also extremely good. Next time must try the dessert.A class... More
