Modern Australian
Vue de monde is a testament to the belief that dining can be a wondrous and unforgettable experience. The ever-changing chef’s menu pays homage to classical fine dining in a modern context by exploring the beauty of native Australian ingredients. While in the past the menu looked to Europe for inspiration, Executive Chef Hugh Allen continues to celebrate the unparalleled quality of home-grown produce with thoughtfully considered dishes committed to seasonality and locality.

Vue de monde has been synonymous with Melbourne dining for almost 20 years, continuing to present an exciting and dynamic experience with a progression of flavours and sense of curiosity. The whimsical spirit at the heart of the Vue de monde menu has not been lost throughout the years, with the lighter-handed and more natural approach to cooking being no less infused with theatre.

    What an amazing dining experience! The venue, the view, and the ambience were fabulous. The food and wine were uniquely delicious and beautifully presented. The young men and women who are the engine room of this magnificent restaurant are so passionate and professional in the execution of their particular tasks. The food is prepared and presented personally by the staff who explain the elements of each dish and how to enjoy the best of it. The staff are dedicated to making each person feel comfortable and in a position to enjoy every minute of their dining experience without being intrusive. The cost is high but well deserved. The cost will soon be forgotten but the memory of this exceptional dining will remain for a very long time. Thank you for making us feel very special!

    I took my boyfriend here to propose. The staff were absolutely amazing and orchestrated the most memorable engagement complete with some privacy for the proposal and filming it for us. The food was stellar, gorgeous presentation with perfectly paired wines. The Starr worked seamlessly as a team being attentive without being overbearing. Spectacular place with an amazing view of the city. Can’t begin to recommend it enough.

    Amazing experience and not just the food, it was like theatre. From the moment we arrived until leaving we felt very spoiled. I have never experienced anything like it. Definitely should be on everyone's bucket list. Even though it's been ticked off my list now, I would go again for sure. Love, LOVE, LOVED IT!! Congratulations and thank you.

    It was an amazing experience, the food exquisite, and the service exemplary, nothing was too much trouble. Our somelier was incredible so intuitive and knowledgeable in the wine matching and I had the non alcoholic matching and the teas for each course were absolutely sublime. The fourteen degustation courses were perfect and so delicious. There was absolutely not one thing I could fault. A perfect experience! and the view of the city is incredible.

    Fantastic fine dining experience with Australian ingredients and a world class degustation menu, paired with wines from around the globe - each course was a palatal delight. We celebrated our wedding anniversary over a long lunch and were made to feel like royalty with our every need attended to. The view from inside the restaurant as well as the various outdoor balconies was spectacular. It was a truly memorable occasion and we thank all the staff for making it so.

    We had the most incredible dining experience, from arrival to finish. Staff were fantastic, with a special thank you to Nicole & Justin. Views were wonderful, the restaurant beautiful & the food - WOW!!! Presentation was fabulous & every single mouthful was bliss. We had food & flavours we have never had before & would never think to order. Yes, very expensive (for us anyway), but an experience that we loved & will hopefully get to do again one day.

    Up until now Tetusya had been our most memorable dining experience, but Vue De Monde definitely eclipses it by a degree or 2. Absolutely everything was on point, especially the way they catered to my dairy intolerance in such a seamless manner, almost every dish that was modified was indistinguishable from my partner’s. For me the standout dish, without doing any disservice to the entire menu, was the tofu, eel & caviar. The level of service and the attention to detail were on a scale to behold, being invited to the kitchen for one of dishes was an amazing experience. If you are seeking an incredible dining experience I can’t recommend Vue Du Monde highly enough.

    Amazing experience and atmosphere. From the moment you step into the building you have personalised almost 1:1 service from many of the staff members. Each course is explained in depth by the the team, you can feel their passion for the food they have created and served. The theatre of Vue de Monde was on par with the food and wine.

    An extraordinary experience. Booked looking forward to the food and loved the unique wines where sourced out of Australia. Caliber of staff and everything about it was first class. Only quip was the initial bar, that I understand is not run by the restaurant. It is, however, the arrival experience and the grand cru champagne was nothing amazing.
