I went to Bistro Vue for lunch on Saturday with 3 other friends and was so pleased we chose this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the snickers bar which I have been wanting to try ever since Shannon did it on Masterchef. The food was presented really nice and the décor of the restaurant is lovely. The staff... More

My partner's special birthday dinner was a huge disappointment. She was keen to try foie gras. Sorry.Not available. Snails. Sorry, the supplier didn't deliver. 45 mins wait for steak tartare. Much commented on tarte tartin was nothing special. I wrote a formal complaint about the whole debacle and no surprise, no response. This place insists on bookings, but don't bother.... More

This place was highly recommended to us for a business dinner. Service was excellent and the menu looked really good, but the meals were pretty average for me. For entree, I had the kingfish cerviche which was small and tasteless. For mains,the grass feed fillet, french fries and hollandaise sauce, it was okay but not brilliant as it was quite... More

The week day lunch special offers looks good value . Cocktails and wine were excellent with lots to choose from .This is our second... More

It was a Melbourne Cup Day dinner. Three course menu was fixed but selections were wide and varied to suit all tastes. Food quality was to perfection, service was personalised and excellent and wine choice was great. Cost was in line with the quality and experience of the evening. Not our first visit and certainly not our last. Can strongly... More

Thursday set price menu is trout, salad and a wine for $32. The fish was cooked perfectly, with half a juicy lemon for some additional flavour. We had a plate of French fries for $8. A large very tasty serve, absolutely delicious. Great value lunch.

We wanted a light meal and discovered this was nearby on our last night after a day at the races. Food was excellent, service also good. Only disappointing thing was when some overseas friends dropped in to join us for a coffee we didn't get the sweet treats we saw everyone else getting :( The desserts others were eating looked...

Came to bistro Vue with hubby for our first wedding anniversary. Wanted to try something different to our usual go to restaurants. Great location if you stay on Southbank like us and the atmosphere was great inside too. French music in the background and the table setting matched. We order very differently so we each tried a few different things... More

The ambience at the bistro is buzzy and a little loud with the bar at the back of the dining area. The oysters from Batemans Bay were spectacular. I followed that with the Spanish Mackerel. While nice it wasn't amazing. I've eaten better on the BBQ in Cairns. Unfortunately the way this was cooked didn't do it the justice such... 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.
