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.

    Cannot fault anything. The service, staff and food all exceeded expectations - What an incredible experience. If we could give 10 stars we would. Hugh and staff were amazing, as was the food both in flavor and presentation. An extensive wine selection that made a perfect pairing with the food courses in combination with a spectacular ambiance in a lovely private little area for to the four of us on the most beautiful leather table with touches of nature and an amazing view, that were all part of this unforgettable experience. And to our delight Hugh served us a couple of courses (we were star struck a little!!!). They shouldn't change a single thing - its perfect in every way and we will be booking again. Georgia

    Perfect for the special celebration when the purse strings can open a little wider. Marvellous dishes that one normally only sees "on the telly". Charming and knowledgable wait-staff who moved around us silently and gave the full "voila" service.

    What an amazing experience showcasing Australia’s local ingredients to my American fiancé. Right from the start, the hospitality was exceptional. The food was amazing and we were ready to roll out of there. We got the matching wines which also went well with every dish we got. Views are spectacular

    What can I say, this place was next level. My partner and I came here for my birthday and we could not speak more highly of it. The service was second to none, every staff member knew it was my birthday, everyone said happy birthday and even signed a personalised birthday card from the restaurant. The staff were so attentive and were like stealth ninjas chaperoning me to the toilet, relaying our napkins and filling our glasses. The food was so creative and delicious and being from South Australia it was really nice to see a lot of produce and wine was South Australian. Finally the views were absolutely stunning, the gorgeous sunset and the beautiful city lights were a perfect backdrop. All in all we HIGHLY recommend Veu De Monde for your next celebration, night out or just for fun. (7:30pm booking in Nov for a stunning sunset) Thanks again to all the staff for a memorable night x

    WE had been here some 10 years ago and had loved it. Our most recent experience was as good as the previous meal. Food was different but tasty and interesting, the gumnut sweets being hard to believe as a dessert. Nicole served us diligently and attentively and we strongly recommend her. The sommelier was also vary good. The tour of the kitchen was also a novel touch. Very much a once in a lifetime experience as we do not come to Melbourne that often

    Vue du Monde is a life experience. From the swish of the lift taking us up 55 floors to being greeted by a bevy of waiters/chefs explaining the wine, the food, describing what area certain produce was from, the providence of ingredients we knew we were in for a treat. The views over Melbourne and beyond are extraordinary. Each of the thirteen degustation courses were presented like art works. The flavors were complex and complimentary. What an evening. A total ‘experience. All the staff were absolutely at the top of their profession, physically and metaphorically. What an experience to treasure. Thanks Vue du Monde!

    Our experience at Vue de monde was exceptional. A luncheon to celebrate a success was provided a level of excellence in food, beverage and service we had not experienced before - despite a lot of looking. In particular the energy and passion of the full team was evident in every aspect of our experience and was a major contribution to what we saw as one of the great dining experiences of our lives.
