We dined here during our trip to Melbourne recently. I had made a booking a month prior and was glad to see we were seated at a nice round table for 2 people. Some of the other table for 2 were a little close to the next table. Nice ambiance and nice background music, professional staff. After ordering, we were... More

This place did not disappoint from the moment we walked in until we left. The international staff were warm, attentive and amusing while not inappropriately gushing, the ambience helped along by a piano accordion gently playing Charles Aznavour-ish music in the background. The oysters were especially good, followed by fillet steak. One of our number found his not as tender... More

Another early in the year long work day in Melbourne. The summer heat was sapping the locals and the restaurants seemed quiet. I felt like a reminder of a classic French bistro, so off I went in search of Bistro Vue, Shannon Bennett's elegant tribute to that classic of all French contributions to culiniary history! The bar was quiet but... More

Dined here on New Years before watching the fireworks. Service was great and our waiter was always at hand. Entree of duck egg and quail followed by the rib eye to share and chocolate cookie. We left full and did not need to order any sides as the ribeye comes with potatoes. Great beer options tap and bottled and cocktails... More

Bistro Vue reminded us of our dining experiences in rural France - exposed beams, a cosy, intimate dining room and attentive but unobtrusive service. Once inside, it was i'possible to tell that we were in Melbourne. In our group of six, the mains were very good however the highlights were the frites (moorish) and dessert & petit fours? The ode...

This was a fantastic meal supported by first rate service in a tasteful venue. Entrée of snails and zucchini flower. Snails were light with the right amount of garlic butter to enhance their flavour. Not being used to eating snails we did have to fight them but it was worth it as there wast the reward of a juicy quarry.... More

We went with an old friend who had come from NZ and all was well/ the food was excellent (steak tartare, slow cooked beef, mushroom risotto etc) and the wine great; in our case, a Tasmanian Pinot Noir from Kelvedon Estate near Swansea. Service was unobtrusive but very professional. This was my second visit for the month and both were... More

We had the most amazing meal here a couple of years ago, fantastic food, service and wine so I was delighted that they had room to accommodate us during this trip to Melbourne. However, sadly, this time, our meals were pretty awful. Actually, the service was excellent with a very lovely, accommodating waitress. There were 3 of us and we... More
