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

Went there last night with a group of 9 people. It appeared that they were understaffed and the service was concerning to say the least. At arrival I had to ask a number of times for more then one offered drinks menus, so that everyone could choose a pre dinner drink. Food was mostly very good, although my tartare, although... More

I love this place! I've taken many friends and family to this restaurant many times and everyone has always loved it. The food is amazing, the staff are lovely and the décor is beautiful. Everything I've had on the menu has been delicious, except the Bombe Alaska - I found it bitter. The escargot are amazing, make sure you try... More

Tonight it was lamb cutlets with a rich sauce, some meaty nuggets i couldn't identify (sweetbreads? -i should have asked), mashed potato,simple green salad, big piece of very good crusty... More

What a great venue and set up the restaurant has. Feels like you have stepped into a French Bistro. Splendid decor. We ate the degustation, every course that came out was better than the last. The food was so tasty and each plate beautifully presented. The matching wines were excellently matched with each course. The service was top notch, with... More

I used to dine at Bistro Vue quite regularly when it first expanded after Vue De Monde moved to the Rialto, and loved it. More recently however, the whole experience has deteriorated. I shall provide details of the most recent encounter. Firstly, the staff have become brash and rude. On an outing with my parents, who are in their senior... More

The ambience was really nice and cosy. The snails were on the smaller side. The fish was beautifully cooked. Kangaroo was nice and chewy. Was slightly disappointed with the desserts. The bomb alaska was meh and the chocolate soufflė was a tad too under but the flavours were there.

Looking for authentic french cuisine but in a relaxed, comfortable venue? This is the place. The fit out of the place makes it seem like a little bit of France in Melbourne. Staff were friendly, attentive and welcoming. Food was wonderful, particularly the Tarte Tatin for dessert! A must have.

Do yourself a favour and go there for a meal. Lunch this week we had a Tarte Tatin that was the best my wife and I have eaten here or in Europe. Excellent dishes and service. No question of not going there any time visiting Melbourne

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.

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.
