The location is on a 55th floor which offers breathtaking views of Melbourne. The decor is pretty classy yet modern with a great Aussy vibe.
The service is second to none, so far the experience is building up for the meal which will blow your mind in flavors and artistry. The wine pairing was just right with the exception of this “bacteria” processed sweet wine.

The most creative dishes I’ve ever experienced, and all of them taste amazing! Modern Australian cuisine, with fresh ingredients from different regions, using French cooking techniques. The theatre of the presentation was just right, the staff well trained only to please and make the meal most enjoyable. Be ready to spend, but worth every bite .

The food at vue de monde is absolutely amazing. The intricate detail of every single component is astounding and the wine list is gobsmacking. Service was not the exceptional standard I have experienced in my other visits dining here. An amazing experience for foodies. 17 dishes over 3hrs... WOW! Not to mention the little take home pack at the end.

Wow!Wow!Wow! Our party of3 agreed that the taste sensations we experienced throughout the Chefs Choice degustation menu, were the best we have ever had. My standout was the lemon myrtle oyster. Service was professional, making you feel special. I have eaten at some top restaurants around the world and this is No. 1.

We went for my Mum’s birthday which we had travelled to Melbourne to celebrate. This was the night and the experience that our whole holiday was centred around so we had high expectations. To say our expectations were exceeded would be an understatement. Our night was unforgettable. Amazing service. The food was not only delicious but immactualy and uniquely presented. Each course had us looking at each other saying “wow”. The standard was the highest I’ve ever experienced. Perfect!

The degustation chef's selection was excellent and served with great style and flair.

The staff acknowledged that we had a guest from London and made several comments/questions about her stay in Melbourne which was a nice touch.

The wine list is extensive and quite difficult to navigate. However once we had made a selection the wine waiter was superb in keeping our glasses lightly topped up with chilled wine.

The quality and variety of the food was exceptional (although we could have done with one less dessert). The service from all staff was excellent. The only negative was that the sound level of the background music was so high that it made it difficult to hear people at the other end of the table and also the staff explanations of each dish.

Absolutely stunning. The infinite consideration that goes into every aspect of the experience from collaboration between the chefs and the potter creating individual handcrafted pieces to compliment a particular dish to the amazing and creative use of native produce. Then there’s the wines..... wow.
We loved our experience. Thanks team, you were all bloody amazing!

The food was very good indeed, although the final sweet was very French and did not really fit with the overall Australian theme.
The overall experience is spoiled by the constrained timeframe: ten courses in two hours makes the experience somewhat rushed and out of tune with what we would call a fine dining experience, particularly when you consider the cost.

Vue De Monde is a true dining experience.
The food is well thought out and the flavours the chefs extract from the different ingredients is something very special.Fine dining without being pretentious.The staff love what they do and make it a goal to ensure that you love your time there. They seem to move around effortlessly as though performing a waltz.
Would highly recommend this establishment and as they change the menu to reflect what’s in season I look forward to coming back.

We had the degustation menu last night and it was the most amazing food experience we have ever had! 17 or so of the most delicious, innovative dishes and not one disappointed. The service also deserves a mention - fantastic, knowledgable, attentive and personable staff also made it a great night. And the view is spectacular. Couldn't have been any more special than it was.

Vue De Monde.. The complete dining experience. In fact its more than that, it is an event. The location is unparalleled for dining in Melbourne , while the restaurant ambience is world class. The staff and chefs interaction with the diners makes the experience even more enjoyable and adds a sense of theatre to the night. The wine list is the most extensive I have ever seen and both the quality and value is like no other. The cuisine almost defies description. Every bite is a carnival of flavour

Excellent experience with amazing food and an extensive (but incredibly marked-up) wine list. Service was laid-back and friendly, but both our wine guy and main waiter both left suddenly without allowing us to say thanks. Just go with the flow with the food, it's a really cool journey, and the matched wines, while pricey, are thoughtfully chosen and match the food well.

Vue de monde is the best place to have dinner. You can see the hole Melbourne while dining. The food is amazing and prepared with professional skills and every single dish is beautiful and unique. You need to be open minded while tasting. The service was amazing and all of the waiters were interested in us and very polite! We highly recommend this restaurant if you have special occasions or you want to eat a delicious and fancy dinner with friends or family! Love the place, strong 10!

We went here to celebrate our 20th anniversary and our daughter helped us choose this restaurant. The restaurant being located on the 55th floor with a stunning view made it very special, plus the attentive and friendly staff giving us a tour of the restaurant gave us a pleasant welcoming. The degustation menu was really quite special, with a reoccurring “campfire” theme that was exciting and also interactive.
