A Must Visit

Although a little expensive, you get what you pay for. An experience with exceptional service and wonderful food. An extensive wine list is available however ask your waiter if he has any "special" wines available - these are wines that are at premium drinking age but maybe at reduced prices to... read more

Went there with my husband and my sister and it was great. We are not used to fine dining service but the service there was absolutely great. We were attended by one waitress and she was very helpful, even helped us a bit with the halal food available. We shared 2 plates of entree: the soft shell crab and the... More

Great food, comfortable and pleasant ambience but they know how to charge. Had the oysters, different varieties but high mark up. Tried the pigeon beatuful sauce but very small portion. Other diners in our party fared better. Location nad quality of the food and service make this an excellent choice but select meal carefully and don't expect too much value... More

Bistro Vue is another long term entry on my bucket list that I finally got around to ticking off this Saturday. It's towards the bottom end of Little Collins Street at the back of an unprepossessing office building. The interior is very shabby chic; wooden floor boards, rough hewn wooden beams in the ceiling, distressed paint, tables that look like... More

We dined as part of the Melbourne Food and Wine promotion showcasing roasts in June. We therefore did not see a menu, and had the roast pork which we expected. A generous wedge of loin was accompanied by excellent crackling, beans, and jus. And with the best mash ever. And a perfect serving size. The venue is as pretty as... More

I would have given an Excellent to this restaurant because it deserves it, only I have to be honest & say I was disappointment with my main, the poached snapper, clams, marrow broth, it really lacked in flavor & taste, I had to add salt & I never add salt to my food, every thing else was amazing.

We could only get a late sitting ( 9pm) on the night we visited Bistro Vue, but we were glad to have done it. We had previously been to Vue de Monde in Carlton (many years ago) and were really impressed. Now that VDM is at the top of the town, we thought we'd revisit is less fancy child. Friendly... More

I've been fortunate enough to dine at Bistro Vue on a couple of occasions and it never disappoints. The service is impeccable, the wait staff are knowledgeable and professional (and always have a recommendation, wine or food, should you request one) and the ambience is simply perfect. Highly recommended. Try the beef cheeks if they are on the menu, they... More

Booked a table at 8:45pm. We finished our dinner at 11:00. It was late but the service was awesome. the food was superb. The honey ice cream that goes with the Madeleine's was impressive. Will definitely go back!

The atmosphere and service was just like a French Restaurant. The food was delicious. I had roasted chicken and my husband had French Onion Soup and a beef dish. It was all superb.
