    Absolutely the most incredible dining experience we’ve had, and we’ve been to many best restaurants around the world. Food was exceptional, service was outstanding - the staff’s attention to detail and care was beyond. Ambience was beautiful and the open kitchen was just stunning. Could not fault it.

    Brilliant menu with delicious food. Extremely attentive, cheerful, well-informed staff. Almost too much for old fogies like us to eat after 14 dishes. I recommend turning up fasting.

    Perfection is an understatement. I have eaten at many exclusive restaurants, and this was my most premium all-around experience. Simply put, I think everyone needs to experience this level of dining, food and wine at least once in their life. The atmosphere is relaxed yet highly professional, and the team is dedicated to creating the best possible experience for you, personally, talking to you like a real person without a pretentious act or script that can sometimes be found in high-end restaurants. Without a word of a lie, The whole team signed and embossed a letter for my wife's birthday with wax. If that's not a personal touch, do know what it is. You will pay for this experience, but it is worth the money. The team's skill is unique, and the quality of the cooked food and alcohol is beyond anything I have seen. If you can get a booking, you need to go

    We went there for Easter, the food was definitely very good and a beautiful presentationService was great and very attentive (without me even saying anything they swapped side for my cutlery)They do alternative food for dietary requirements, even the desserts as you can see from the photos of the petite fours in the small box for me and the large one for the rest of the table (had a small accident with the ice cream but all in all was a very good experience)

    We attended Vue de monde for lunch on 12 April 2024 and were overwhelmed with the incredibly attentive and professionalism of the staff. The food (14 courses) was outstanding and the entire lunch was a theatrical experience in a wonderful way in which each meal was presented. Overall very impressive and one that will leave a lasting positive memory.

    Me and Wife had a great time at Vue de Monde. From the time you enter, every single person or the team greets you with a smile and makes every effort to make the experience faboluos. We had the Chefs tasting menu, which we loved. It was very carefully planned, highlighting Australian produce. Tastes amazing. Highly recommended. Will visit again.

    It’s such a nice and unforgettable experience we had here for a birthday dinner. Beautiful food presentations, excellent services and wonderful atmosphere from both within restaurant and outdoor views. A bit expensive but counted number of staff on duty it really worth the cost. Guests are happy to be engaged with the making of deserts and live cooking.

    Very glad to come back after the renovation. Hugh and his team have always been on song with their creative ideas and attention to details whilst keeping the two main signature dishes - marron and chocolate souffle. Well done, and congratulations once again on your achievements!

    It was a magnificent experience! We came for our wedding anniversary and it was such an amazing night. The attention to detail is next level and the food not only looks incredible but tastes sensational. Thank you to all the staff who made us feel so welcomed. We will definitely be coming back.

    A birthday to remember- sublime food, fabulous service and awesome atmosphere. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left it was the tiny details that made everything seamless. Ben, Samuel and Francesca looked after us… and I cannot remember the sommelier’s name but he was also amazing. Thank you

    We feed our imagination and take a walk through the Botanic Gardens, rooted in our seats. Visually this is what dining at Vue de Monde feels like; an artist’s impression of garden scenes with the plate as a canvas.Chocolate pralines are disguised like gum nuts dangling off a eucalyptus leaf. Like a terrarium in a dinosaur egg, we dig past a wreath of cucumber, caviar and kelp jelly into a creamy well of smoked eel tofu. In a Japanese pond we fish for lightly dried tomatoes, swimming beneath floating nasturtium leaves in soup. We are invited to play, crushing flower petals to the gush of liquid nitrogen, the sensations rather like the crunch of crisp autumn leaves under our feet.If the food evokes imagination by sight, then the taste does it more than adequate justice. There is an underlying thread of sublime elegance, perfect execution and a beautiful balance of taste and textures that can only come from a consummate master in the kitchen. This kitchen we get to tour as part of our dining experience, getting up-close to chefs at work at their various stations.Service leaves an impression. We came to celebrate our anniversary, and a passing remark to one waitress about the number of years we have been married is thoughtfully passed on and reflected in a greeting card, signed by all staff at the restaurant. Chefs wish us “Happy Anniversary” as we walk through the kitchen.Where we think Vue de Monde can do better is in the consistency of service standards, bearing in mind this is a three-hatted restaurant (Australia’s equivalent of 3 Michelin stars). Many waiting staff were highly engaging, but a few were evidently going through the motion, revealing a lack of enthusiasm to be present. Noise travels and is amplified in the restaurant, making it hard to hear introductions of dishes. Wine list is extensive but so are the mark-ups.But change is coming, and as Vue de Monde closes this winter for renovations, we hope this period of reflection will fix some of these issues to be truly worthy of a top-class restaurant.*This visit was made at the end of May 2023.

    A truly wonderful experience. From the moment you arrive, you are in a perfect food world. The team are engaging, the food is delightful, the view spectacular. 13 courses, and never rushed. Fingers crossed we can experience it again, post renovation. Happy to post a couple of pics as we were told the entire menu is changing post renovation. Apart from their famous souffle - that is staying.

    What an exquisite fine dining experience! Enjoyed a Friday lunch with family overlooking the north east on a beautiful sunny winter day. Staff were brilliant, food was great and the location top notch (no pun intended). Can't wait to see what it is like after the renovations.

    We got a gift certificate from a friend for our wedding. What a great gift! Everything about this meal was extraordinary from the view, to the service, ambiance, and of course the food! Everything was locally sourced and innovative. We even got a tour of the kitchen and the chefs and staff were so much fun! An experience of a life time.

    We have wanted to dine Vue de monde for years so it was the perfect choice to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We loved everything about it! From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left, the staff were exceptional. Very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was…. Gosh I can’t even find the best word to use…. Unbelievably exceptional. Absolutely exceeded my expectations and loved every course especially the soufflé. The tour of the kitchen was such a lovely touch and to end our final course on the balcony in private with a note from the staff for our anniversary, beyond perfect. Thank you to all the staff at Vue de monde for making our first wedding anniversary a memorable one.
