Beautiful restaurant in CBD.

Arrived around 830pm on an eventful night and the restaurant uad a good crowd in the dinning area. The decor was beautiful and ambiance delightful. If you're looking for a place in the CBD with style then visit. It was extremely easy to order a drink at the bar.

Our booking at Bistro Vue for our anniversary dinner was made 5 weeks prior to the day. On arrival we were shown to the back room. Nice table apart from the techno noise being blasted into the room from the speaker right above us, therefore unable to have a conversation let alone hear the waiter. Suffice to say the manager...

We had the express luncheon special and chose the appetiser and main options. Soft shell crab was quite good as a starter; but pork main was too salty. The was exacerbated by our (poor) choice to have frittes as a side which were way too salty. This spoilt what was otherwise a good value meal.

From the moment we entered Bistro Vue we could tell that this was going to be a night to remember. All of the staff were very attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Our party of four had 3 courses each and not one of the dishes disappointed. The portion sizes are larger than the average 5 star restaurant, without being... More

Wonderful atmosphere with a recreation of an old provincial French restaurant. Excellent food. Recommend the rotisserie - but choose sides as well. I love the style. Service is professional and efficient.

This was a special evening - I had been travelling for a long while and my partner had just flown down from Sydney to join me for the month of December. From the moment you arrive you know that this is a special restaurant, welcoming from the moment you step through the door. The staff are knowledgeable about the menu... More

Was a little reluctant to book a table here as when we rang to make a booking they would not accommodate our preferred time to dine at even though we were the 'customer '.Instead they offered a table for either 6:15pm or for 8:15pm.Reluctantly the 6:15pm booking was made but had it not been for a celebration dinner we would...

I had dinner with my wife. She enjoined her fish albeit when you order that is all you get. I ordered the rotisserie which was slow cooked lamb shoulder. My serve was mostly the outside bits and very dry. if I had cooked this at home I would have given these pieces to my dog. There was a tiny bit... More

It is very much like sitting in a Bistro in Paris, with intimate tables, plush furnishings, they even had a live accordion music playing very French tunes. We had French Onion Soup, Foie gras as entree's and they were excellent. mains were John Dory and... More

Had dinner here last month. Ordered the 3 different types of oysters, very fresh. Ordered French onion soup & escargot for entree. The onion soup unfortunately was a little bit bland, don't think the soup was thick enough. The escargot was ok, I've had better though. Both main dishes were really good. The secondary cut of the wagyu was very... More
