What Insiders Are Saying
Vue de Monde might be tasting-menu only, but it still feels pretty casual and it has views from the 55th floor of the Rialto.
Varied selection of fantastic food, expensive yes, but real value when you consider the quality of ingredients, fantastic presentation, the surroundings in the restaurant, the view from the 55th floor, the amount of work required to produce such dishes and the standard of service.
Been here few years before. Had about 17 dishes for the set menu this time, they were like: appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, main course, main course, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, appetizer, desert, desert and desert. Wonderful experience but just too sour for us, maybe need some mild stuff to balance, otherwise it's going to be over-appetizing.
But this is majorly a personal taste, good job Vue De Monde.
foods are good and French style as it is a French restaurant and mix a bit with Asutralian style. some courses are salty and deserts are too sweet. good table services and wonderful introduction with each course.
Exquisite food and service
Clearly a top Michelin restaurant (if you had that in Australia). One of the best tasting menus I’ve experienced, top service and excellent wine pairing (with an excellent advisory by the sommelier). The ambiance and the views are at level. If you have one restaurant to visit in Melbourne, this should be it.
An amazing experience from start to finish. Food is spectacular and the service is impeccable.
If you have a restaurant bucket list, then VDM should be on it.
Excellence is the only was to describe the dining experience we had at Vue de Monde this week. Evry dish was expertly prepared and presented, every wine pairing was just perfect, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, expertly taking care of every detail of our evening. We chose Vue de Monde to celebrate a milestone birthday, and it was perfect in every way.
Mind blowing and next level amazing!!!
I have been wanting to dine at Vue de Monde for a very long time and was disappointed with my experience. The food was average and we should have had a menu with a description of whar we were eating on the night not sent via email a day later.
This was by far, the most magical dining experience of my life.
Went here for a special occasion and the team made it exactly that, little surprises from start to finish really made this experience so much more special.
Fine dinning but a friendly and relaxed atmosphere made this a truly memorable occasion.
So it wasn't cheap but it was extravagant and abundant.
Every time we felt we could had a another one of those, the staff picked up on it and another one appeared.
The table and space was huge making it a personal experience.
Very attentive staff. Imaginative cuisine. Exceptional dining experience at every level!
The food was phenomenal and the service exceptional. The staff were friendly and engaging. I would highly reccommend vu de monde.
I have eaten in fine establishments in over 40 countries in the world. This was the best.
Wonderful large (kangaroo leather) table by a panoramic window with 55th story views of western Melbourne CBD, from Dockland and Bolte Bridge to Geelong.
Service - a constant flow of authentic, energetic, knowledgeable and entertaining foodie advisors and table staff taking care of our every need before we knew we needed it.
Food - 10 Degustation courses beyond belief.
2003 Yarra Yarra Cab Sav - best ever!
Absolutely outstanding in every way.
Always an amazing experience.
Great views over the city and food and staff were excellent
Authentic high quality fresh Australian produce. Well knowledge staff who loves their jobs!
Nice fine dining. Good experience but not memorable.
Price was not clear at reservation compared to what the bill was.
Very good, friendly and professional staff.
Great choice of cutlery, crockery, glassware... amazing presentation
Good interactions between kitchen an front of house
Wine pairings were exceptional.
Tomato, sea urchin, avocado courses a bit underwhelming.
Spanner crab sausage, duck, marshmellow, cheese all brilliant.
All the staff were amazing and the food was crazy good.
An absolutely wonderful experience , one we will never forget. Raj & Alex were superb
Exceptionally different, food that you would probably turn your nose up at, but you really have to try everthing they serve as it is all very amazing and tasty. You have to be open to different food and if you are you won't be disappointed. Food and service was exceptional
Wedding present and it was amazing
Such a pleasure to return to the Vue de Monde restaurant again. We felt like royalty and ate like kings
The service was excellent and in many ways made the night. They were attentive, but not overly and really seemed passionate about their work and making sure we had a great night.
The food was incredibly different to anything I have eaten. While we had 12 courses, they were sized not to fill but were delicious and varied.
We chose the matching wine option and were glad we did as we drank wines I would never have selected.
We loved it - a wonderful experience!
A meal to remember, and worth every penny. Exceptional food, great service, interesting wines. A perfect night.
Just awesome. Splendid. The best of the best.
I thought that the food was a bit salty for my taste And it didn’t meet the high expectations I had.
But I still has a good time with my significant other.
Great dining experience
From the moment you arrive the restaurant gives you a sense of exclusivity it is like being apart of an exclusive private restaurant
Loved the service and food
We were welcomed to the restaurant with enthusiasm. Everyone was keen to share the ingredients of each plate - but with pride not because they had to. Very accepting of our 7 year old son
Great restaurant. Great venue. Great food.
Vue de monde is a landmark restaurant and the degustation didnt disappoint.
The food, wine and the staff. Especially the staff, every one of them made our dining experience that more enjoyable. Especially our sommelier (who’s name I forgotten) was amazing. Nothing was to much for him, friendly informative and a get asset to the company. We will defiantly be back. Thank you all so much for a night to always remember :)
Wow, what an experience. My husband and I loved it and will talk about it for a long time to come. We were blown away by the experience. The food was amazing, the waiters/waitresses were on the top of their game. Seemed to be very experienced about the food and wines. Being a top fancy restaurant we never felt uncomfortable in anyway. We were made to feel comfortable to ask questions about the food and presentation. would highly recommend the experience. We did it and loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exceptional service backed up by quality food albeit some dishes were very small. Great presentation of food, wonderful views and attentive staff who went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic wedding anniversary. We had the seasonal menu and while good I would question the worth of paying $275 a head and yes I am aware that you are paying for the ‘experience’. Drinks are well over priced as expected and we got charged $16 for ‘vestal’ water which is ridiculous ! Won’t be rushing back.
We had the chef’s seasonal menu and the first 6 courses where all outstanding especially with the nitrogen poured over herbs, really wow dish. However, their dessert was a big down fall. There’s no layers to it and the lavender sorbet tasted like cough medicine. Also, with th oyster, not very interesting in term of plating and a bit disappointed with its freshness. For the price we do expect every dish to be exceptional. Also, we have to say the service wasn’t outstanding, not warm and welcoming
Ten years ago in university, my best friend and I promised each other that one day we would go to Vue de Monde together. Safe to say, it was better than we could have ever imagined and far exceeded our wildest expectations. The staff, food, ambiance and view were sensational. It’s the best restaurant in Australia in the best city in the world. We wined and dined like royalty and will never forget such an incredible experience!
