Had heard of Vue du Monde but not the bistro. Delighted I saw it on the website as we had a fantastic dinner on a recent Friday. We ate quite early and had a really nice corner round table that allowed us plenty of room for our family of 3 (2 adults and 1 x 10 yr old). Service was... More

Right in the heart of the CBD. The staff provided a very fast and pleasant dining experience. The food was delicious. You must try the tarte tatin.

Me and my husband went tonight because I've wanted to go for a long time!! We were very excited but a bit apprehensive because of previous reviews however we had a great night. The decor is lovely, we were lucky and as it was a Monday at 6.15 it was empty but it did start to fill up and the... More

Bistro Vue catches your interest as soon as you walk in with its eclectic decoration. The seating is comfortable rather than elegant and the crockery gives the feel of home. The food was delicious, we were particularly impressed with the red cabbage with almonds to complement our main courses. The creme brûlée had a rich creamy custard and a crunchy... More

A fantastic meeting place with good variety of food and a great selection of wine. Good and relatively fast service.

It's not everyday you get a chance to eat the food of one of Australia's best chefs (or their contemporaries). I was very much looking forward to it, however I can't recommend this place on either the consistency of the food or the service. I ordered the fillet steak medium rare and it arrived medium well, it was dry and... More

In the face of some recent mixed TA reviews for Bistro Vue, I thought that our call to have a special birthday lunch there might have been reconsidered. On balance, we are glad that we didn't. An interesting French-themed dusky kind of ambience... very well-trained and professional front of house staff....attentive without being in your face...some generally excellent food... and... More

I almost gave this two stars rather than three, but to be honest the food was unremarkable, but OK. Certainly not a 'fine dining' experience on a Friday lunchtime. I think one problem is that the 'refreshed' premises (per the website) is now a confusing mix of bar, cafe and restaurant spaces so any sense of occasion has evaporated before... More
