Last Friday I came in for a work team lunch, we were accommodated without reservation in a timely manner. The decor and music were delightful and with a view of the kitchen made a great atmosphere.... From where I was sitting I did notice some of the techniques in the kitchen which I enjoyed but better than that was the... More

Fine dining used to be a regular thing for me and my husband, but since the advent of kids and a move to the country, it is now a rare treat. Visiting friends in Melbourne, I wanted somewhere for a special treat - with fabulous food and a Melbourne feel, but without the snootiness you sometimes get from upmarket restaurants.... More

Had walked past a few times and thought it looked great so picked this venue for a breakfast get together with friends. Long black coffees were not drinkable, lattes ok, juices came in commercial plastic packaging with a straw stuck in them, pancakes were served with segmented fruit that had perhaps been cut on a chopping board previously used to...

I booked the meal to celebrate my husband's birthday, during a celebratory weekend in Melbourne. I booked having read reviews of the restaurant... I was not disappointed. Rather than the 6 course degustation menu we chose to go "a la carte", as we liked the selection. We both went for the foie gras, after checking with our waiter it was... More

A very busy Saturday night. The staff thought they were knowledgeable but even though they insisted a foie gras starter was foie gras it was in fact pate de foie gras which was a big disappointment. However, the belly pork with loin and black pudding was fantastic and the pinot noir one of the best we've drunk. Combined with excellent... More

My partner and I were looking forward to a wonderful evening flying to Melbourne to celebrate his birthday for the weekend. Once we walked through the entrance and into the amazing decor we new we were in for a treat. Unfortunately it started with a whimper. After being seated at a table set for 5 (only 2 of us) we...

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
