Description: 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.

“Beautiful Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

I went for dinner with some girlfriends while visiting Melbourne, we had such a wonderful experience. We were all very happy with our dinner and we all of course tried each others dishes. My favourite out of the four would have to be the Pumpkin Risotto. Absolutely Delicious! We all ordered dessert too, one each, which was probably overkill as we struggled to eat them all. My favourite of the four was the Tartetin, our waiter recommended this as we were struggling to order. So glad we took his suggestion. We were very impressed with our waiter for the night, he was very knowledgeable without being pretentious. A little on the pricey side but if you want somewhere special which will not disappoint it's a great choice. Will definitely dine here again while in Melbourne.

“Great Cbd lunch - we will be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

I met my Cbd working husband for a child free lunch before doing some business. It was pretty faultless in terms of food, and being exactly what it advertises. Sophisticated Cbd no nonsense, cut above the rest dining at a reasonable - for - what - you - get price.

“Simply fantastic ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We recently revisited this fantastic Shannon Bennett creation for a farewell dinner for a friend returning to Sydney. She had never been here before and was suitably impressed (and stuffed) at the end of the experience.

This is a first class eating experience without the pretence of some of its competitors in the fantastic culinary scene we now have in Melbourne. The service, menu, food and experience is well worth a visit. It is even worth going a little earlier and imbibing in a pre-dinner drink in their new Bar area.

I can highly recommend a visit to this quaint little restaurant and our friend will be recommending it to her friends and family "up north" to visit when they are next in Melbourne.

“Top notch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

One of the nicest bistro style meals I have had anywhere. If you are a fan of the bistro style make a bee line for this restaurant. Fabulous atmosphere and superb food with friendly service. A little piece of France in Australia.

Do not leave without having the tart tatin! You will not be disappointed! Highlight of our long, lazy lunch!
