Our luncheon degustation was just remarkable..every course done with panache and excellent presentation. Produce excellent and flavours perfectly melded. Sommelier and all the staff just outstanding and very professional. Expensive, sure,but justified. Truly world class. Wine cellar top class also

Booked Vue De Monde (chefs table) for my 50th birthdays with three dear friends. What an experience. The food, the service and the atmosphere was - as a whole package - one of a kind. The food was amazing - hard to pick a highlight but we all thought the eel with white chocolate and caviar was pretty damn fantastic - but after 10 courses and mutiple deserts (OMG !) and treats - we decided (after a breather) we could fit in the cheese trolley and it was to die for! The service was sensational. Discrete, warm, friendly, engaged. The crew, who had clearly been briefed and know their craft, made the night very special. The views (between the city and kitchen - we kept rotating), the table setting, cutlery, the stones and vines - aboslute sensory pleasure. The icing on the cake was the package provided for the next day. Thank you so much to everyone. The price tag (clearly articulated and provided up front) is not for everyone, but if you could save for a special occassion - this is it.

Firstly the setting is great. The view, large tables and not sardined together and attentive service. Also whilst ultra classy not snobbish. Now to the food - sensational. We were asked if we were adventurous and the degustation menu was a combination of taste texture and presentation all to the highest standard. Yes it is expensive, but well worth it. I can only thank Shannon Bennett and his wonderful staff for a memorable night.

I was taken to Shannon Bennett's, high up on top of Melbourne’s Rialto Tower for a recent birthday. It's all it's said to be and more: an all round dining experience that lasted forover four hours with (very small) course after course just trilling our taste buds and eyes. For me the highlight was the Cucumber and pineapple sage.
