As always the cocktails were amazing, ambiance is incredible and the staff are beyond exceptional. One and only downside is the menu is very limited. I understand the purpose of the menu but would have expected at least one or two items that were vegan friendly. It was the only reason we left. In future I think I will call to see where we are sitting as we had booked I definitely didn't expect to be sitting at the the bar and, although its great to be so close to the bartender, my back isn't great to start with and it was very uncomfortable and painful by the end.

If you have only one cocktail while in Melbourne, have it at Eau de Vie. An inventive and tasty cocktail menu (the menu itself an artwork), impeccable yet unstuffy service, and a transporting atmosphere combine for an exceptional experience.

Easily booked online for 90min pre- dinner drinks however were not ushered out after the booking had expired. Loved the house take on espresso martinis as well as the classic ones! Cocktails were in a class of their own only matched by the fabulous service! We were lucky enough to get a booth which was private and intimate. Please note I can’t comment on the food as we only had drinks however the tool will not let you not rate the food.

Hidden gem in Melbourne's laneways! Fantastic and varied range of cocktails, small but delicious food options. It's only downside is how popular it is! On our third attempt, we finally got into Eau de Vie. I would highly recommend making a booking!

We booked a table for two for my birthday 🎁 this was the second time I had been. It is an amazing place, fantastic coctail selection and drinks list. The food was great - being able to try numerous dishes to try was truly enjoyable. We travelled from New Zealand especially to experience Eau De Vie Melbourne.

Cocktails are lovely! Friendly service too. Only issue I had was I booked a table, and at that time I wasn't told that I'll have to vacate the table at a particular time. I was rushed towards the end. Surely you can do better job at that. I would have liked to continue drinks at the bar, which was not offered either. I would go 5 stars if communication was clearer.

My fiancé and I travelled from Sydney to celebrate our engagement at Eau De Vie. From the moment we were greeted at the door the service was exceptional. They offered us a complimentary drink to say congrats and explained he cocktail list to us. We had a bar seat which was very theatrical. The share plates and cold meats and cheese were delicious and came out in stages so that we could enjoy our evening. We booked about 5 days in advance and glad we did as it got quite busy. Would definitely dine here again, the cocktail and extensive drink list adds to the theatre of the restaurant. Could not recommend enough! A must try in Melbourne!
