“A dining pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

It is interesting to note other reviews of this restaurant, overwhelmingly they are favorable which was our experience. We had a tasting menu and we were completely happy. Yes it is expensive but then its a case of the old cliché "you get what you pay for" We found the staff helpful, informative and not the least bit intrusive in their detailed exposition of each dish. We loved each and every dish - the truffle marshmallow, smoked eel, Marron, Barramundi and a number of interesting and tasty dishes. The views are stunning, but we were more focused on the food. There certainly is an element of theatre in the presentation of dishes but we thought it enhanced our dining experience. We thought that the alcohol prices were not excessive and compared with other restaurants of this quality. We are about to do a gourmet tour of Michelin starred restaurants in San Sebastian so we will be looking to benchmark Vue de Monde with them, because we are looking forward to returning here on our next visit to Melbourne. We thought that this restaurant has been one of our most enjoyable dining experiences in Australia.

“Great experience for 50th Birthday celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had the best time, had an early dinner session, degustation menu was beautiful, great to try some food that you would not normally get a chance to try such as salt cured wallaby and emu jerky. Loved that they put us near a window when they found out it was for a 50th birthday. Serving staff were extremely attentive and explained each course which was appreciated. Well done Vue staff you made his celebration one to remember.

“Food was amazing, service on the otherhand; confusing.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Apart from the massive attitude on our main waitress and the thickest French accents around on most others, we had fun and the food was excellent.

If we could erase the sourness of the attitude with regards to being quick enough to order, it would have been sublime.

“Simply the best and continuing to evolve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Vue in all their locations from Carlton to the city and now in the heavens. The transformation of the dining experience is simply astounding. Carlton was wonderful, the city was busy, the rialto is amazing. The food as you would expect is supurb, the attention to details breathtaking and the entire experience will live with you for ever. Cant wait for the installment, thank you Vue.
