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.

    This was the most luxurious dining experience of my life. Expensive, of course, but absolutely worth it - the food was exceptional. We especially have to shout out our sommelier James, whose wine pairings (and stories about the wine pairings!) were incredible.

    Wonderful experience at a wonderful venue. Not quite appropriate for regular visits but an amazing spot for that special occasion. They only thing we could complain about was the 2 hour time limit per sitting. Not appropriate for a restaurant of this stature and certainly not considering what customers are paying - no one should be bustled out because time had run out, especially if being served 14 courses!

    Vue was certainly a total food experience, from the moment you entered the building you felt well looked after and that a special night was ahead. The welcome was so refreshing, we felt like we were returning to a favourite restaurant. The service was exemplary and the food and wine outstanding. One of the truely memorable food experiences that we will remember for years to come. Thank you.

    Booked a surprise lunch for my wife. She loves trying new and interesting flavours so this was a perfect experience. The wait staff are attentive, polite, and possess a wealth of knowledge. The dishes were delicious as expected. Plates were visually intricate and immaculate. We enjoyed every moment.

    We came to Vue de Monde with high expectations and it didn’t disappoint. A tactile, sensory feast, strongly connected to the earth, while hovering over amazing city views. We loved the focus on Australian ingredients and details like the furry wallaby skin chairs. Highly recommended!

    It was absolutely magnificent, the space is lovely, plenty of room for each table without sharing conversation or space with other diners. The service was absolutely second to none, the food top notch, wine selections were great! Everyone is so personable and attentive, shout out to Hugh the executive head chef but not that he would tell you that! Dorian on the wines, Ben, Tom, Eddy, we had an absolutely wonderful time, thank you all!

    We are visiting Melbourne to see our son and his gf and I booked VdM for Jaz bday. We were so looked after by everyone, the food and wine was superb and the service matched this. We have eaton in a number of Michelin restaurants in the UK and the experience, food and wine matched many of our most enjoyable evenings in these restaurants. An evening we will remember for years to come. Thank you

    Never been before and dubious about the pre conceived thought we will come home hungry. The 14 courses we had were all so interesting and tasteful. Ben our waiter along with the wine and side waiters all created a memorable meal experience. Save up and try for the Special occasion.
