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.

Interesting experience, majority of the menu was seafood which as someone that hates seafood was disappointing, there are no menus so I didn’t see what I was getting myself into. Highlights where the cheese board and excellent service. I would like to highlight that we made a request for seats with a nice view as it was our anniversary, but we got seated on a massive table that would have sat 4 people right in the middle of the restaurant with a very limited view. The bathrooms are also interesting, very very dimly lit so much so that I had to use my flashlight to see!
Overall a memorable experience not one that we will not be repeating. I dont recommend vue de monde if you don’t like seafood, aromatic flavours and paying $600+ for food you don’t know if you will like.

Excellent in almost every respect. Only wish we had been given a table in the main dining room so we could watch what was happening in the kitchen. Exquisite presentation and flavours. Awesome views. Stunning decor. Comprehensive but expensive wine list. A very special treat!

I went here on Sunday 6th October with my fiance. Our friend recommended it and we would definitely do the same to others.

Although expensive it's about the experience I think. There is obviously a high cost to have it in such a great location, use good quality ingredients and the superb staff.

There has been a lot of thought put into everything about the place.

If you're a food lover then you'll appreciate it.

We would definitely go again whenever the menu changes and would be available to test if you need food testers :)

Cheers Matt and Marina.

We were told we would receive an email the next day with the menu and the wines consumed.

This has not been received to date.

A little disappointing.

Excellent lunch, both in terms of the food itself and dining experience. We have a few fine dining restaurants around the world, and this is without a doubt one of the most memorable meals. We also had dinner at Attica on the same day, it’s hard not to compare. Attica no doubt presents more innovation in its dishes, however, to me, the most important criteria for judging a meal always comes back to the taste - innovation not for the sake of it but additive to the taste. The meals at Attica started with being interesting and ended with being quite disappointing with the dishes mostly lacking the ‘wow’ factor in its balance. Vue de monde also has some innovative elements but mostly focuses on taking the traditional dishes to the next level of perfection. The splendid view and dining experience of Vue de monde are also added bonus, however, even based on the meal alone, we will be back to Vue de monde for sure.

Everything about this was incredible. The food was amazing, the matching wines were incredible, the staff was also amazing. Sometimes I was not able to really understand what was presented due to accents, however, may has something to do with my own accent (I am not a native). Maybe a little menu with a tour of all the things presented on the menu would be amazing, however, that is the only tiny comment.

Overall it has been a one of a lifetime experience which I will cherish forever :)

We enjoyed the 10 course full experience menu. The dishes were for the most part spectacular in taste, provenance and presentation. The only suggestion would be not to serve the mini Aussie biscuits as the final course after the brilliant celeriac granita - which just cleared the pallet and refreshed us perfectly after so many dishes.

Service could be better. Some table get to visit the kitchen once and some twice. However, some table not able to visit the kitchen at all. Would be better if the service are consistent among all table. Food are great.

Spectacular experience, proud to have this world class restaurant in our City.
Friendly service, super high quality food and wine.
Only issue was the lack of entry-level wines. Very few affordable options which on top of a pricey meal makes it restrictive for some patrons.

An excellent group of employees who work exceptionally hard to ensure that the experience meets the cost.
If it were not for the effort that the staff put in to ensure you maximise the experience, it could be a very flat evening

We had the most wonderful experience. Each dish was amazing and flavourful. I was pregnant at the time, and they catered to all of my dietary needs. We also had a voucher for our wedding, and the staff prepared a special plate and experience for a congratulations. Would recommend Vue de Monde to everyone.

We had a phenomenal experience at Vue de monde. We dined for my partners 30th birthday - which I told them before we arrived. Every staff member wished my partner a happy birthday and went the extra mile to make it a special occasion. There were lots of little of courses and each one tasted incredible. The food was served with bespoke flourishes that added to the experience and we loved hearing the story of each dish. The matched wines were perfect and the sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable.

So last year I ate at Lamelloise in Chagny,Five Fields in Chelsea and was failed by Arpege in Paris (burnt Marron tail) amongst others. Last Sunday night at 8.45pm we were in a rainy, cold Melbourne night from Sydney and we had so much damn fun in this place that it was almost impossible to believe. Vue de Monde can't be given a third hat because it is so totally lighthearted and so enjoyable that many rules of "fine dining" are thrown out the 55th floor window. Unbelievable. Arpege be damned!

Vue de Monde provides a wonderful ambiance and impresses with the views (55th floor) but foremost with its food.
Tasting the treats in in the kitchen and the wonderful flavours of each of the dishes, this restaurant is after eating in Europe's finest restaurants and in Sydney, another dinner experience to remember.
