Been here quite a few times and I've never been disappointed. Staff are friendly, informative and attentive without being intrusive. I can't fault the menu. The Plat du Jour menu is great value and my fav is the Monday Bouillabaisse but I also love the lamb and the pork and the duck and... The Tarte Tatin is my favourite dessert... More

Been here quite a few times and never disappointed. Staff are friendly, informative and attentive without being intrusive. Plat du Jour menu is excellent taste and value and Monday's Bouillabaisse is a fav. Tarte Tatin... wish I had one right now. It is one of my favourite dessert ever!!

The menu and wine list were quite ok, I'm a vegetarian and only had a couple of suggestions but found a tasty enough meal. The waiter however found it necessary to make jokes of my being a vegitarian which was just unprofessional, I don't think it was at all necessary, he also had a crack at another guest for eating...

Perhaps the best restaurant I went during a four weeks stay in Australia. Good food and very good wines. But there were several facts that surprise me. Just two to mention. The first, the system used by the kitchen to inform the waiters dishes are ready: an annoying Bell just in the separation shelf between the kitchen and the main... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary by dining at Bistro Vue. Great French provincial decor, lovely helpful staff. My husband enjoyed Loin of Venison which was extremely tender and tasty. I had the Rotisserie which was lamb shoulder, very nice and a large portion of which I had to give a third to my husband. Desert was fabulous with a chocolate... More

This is a restaurant for a special occasion! I took a friend to Bistro Vue for her birthday and the food and service were excellent. Unfortunately we were in a back corner where I was facing the wall and couldn't see anything except the wall so was unable to get a feel of the whole place. If you want a... More

Flew in (delayed) to eat at Bistro Vue. Firstly the reservation staff and ultimately the restaurant manager were totally accommodating of our delay. We were welcomed (suitcases in hand) by name and received wonderful service from beginning to end. Food was as good as ever - onion soup delicious. Porc roti delicious, my wife's white fish proclaimed as good as... More

We attended from Perth for my sister-in-law's 40th. Bar staff for pre lunch drinks were excellent. We then had a private room of about 60 people. Staff were good, food nice. Not really for fussy children though. We didn't pay but it is on the expensive side.

I went to this place some time ago and was very impressed, although expensive we got some delicious food and it was very worthwhile and worth paying for.This time around it seemed to be a little less in the meal creations, but still high in price. I'd still give it another go though. The seating and dining area are fabulous... More

Bistro Vue's lauded menu is classic French cooking at its best: steeped in tradition, using the finest produce. Premium oysters and caviar crown a selection of sublime appetisers, exquisite entrees and magnificent mains boasting the very best of meat, fish and garden produce. Guaranteed to satisfy any craving. Our weekday 'plat du jour' menu offers unbeatable value with a prime main, salad, and glass of wine for just $32, celebrating the historic art of fine French cuisine. Our sides, fashioned from Victoria's best produce, seamlessly tailored to our prime courses, mare perfect for sharing, while our deceptively simple desserts unite technique, precision, and knowledge to crest a truly memorable mouthful. And what bistro experience would be complete without cheese? Our enviable trolley selection will satisfy even the most discerning fromage fancier. Bistro Vue: a taste of France you won't soon forget.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
