“Well worth a visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We had a delightful Sunday lunch at Vie. There was a bit of a hold-up on our mains; we were offered omplimentary drinks (although in that setting it was barely a hardship). The set menu arrangement is very well priced and the food beautifully prepared and presented.

“Spectacular location and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Took my husband for Fathers Day and enjoyed it so much we returned two weeks later with another couple. It was just as good and I highly recommend. Food and service outstanding and it was just glorious sitting overlooking the water for a long lunch. This restaurant needs to be rediscovered. I had given up dining on the GC but will make this restaurant a regular. Set menu very reasonably priced for the location and standard. A glorious way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

“Impeccable food, service, view, wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We had an enjoyable lunch from the 3 course lunch menu $49 (2 course $43). We were impressed with the food, everything was fresh, tasty and well presented. The waitress was friendly, attentive and helpful when deciding on the meal and wine. We had a view of the marina; our table was on the inside edge of the restaurant looking out through the balcony. We were celebrating 2 55th birthdays and were presented with a birthday card and a small bottle of Versace perfume, which was a nice touch.

“Slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Food was good but small portions and very overpriced, service was good but slow. For one drink and one entree, I was in there for over 1 hour 20 mins.

Thank you for taking the time to review us at Vie. I am investigating your concerns but I wonder if you could let me know when you dined with us? At lunch we offer a 2 or 3 course set menu and at dinner for the last few nights we have had functions in the restaurant. As such I haven't been able to find any record of a guest who had only an entree and one drink. Please feel free to contact me any time at Vie so that I can address your points and continue to improve our service.

Kind regards,
Simon Shanahan.

“Enjoyed my lunch immensely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Had the "Slow roasted Tasmanian Aberdeen Angus beef sirloin medium rare, grilled field mushrooms, romesco, roasting juices" for main course with "Blood orange trifle, olive oil sauternes cake, catalan cream, tuile" for dessert.
The sirloin was fantastic and just melted in my mouth.
Dessert was delightful with a very tasty combination of flavours.
Highly recommend Vie.
