Vue de Monde













Dining at Vue de Monde would simply have to be the most exciting and complete culinary experience available in Melbourne. The whole experience from being seated to leaving the restaurant lived up to every expectation I had in my mind. We ate the Degustation Menu with matched wines, and it was not only delicious and perfectly cooked and presented, but challenged your concepts of food, and especially of wine matches. The Sommelier has done an extraordinary job of finding some amazing matches for some challenging dishes.

I cannot start to describe every dish we ate, or try to explain it on this blog. It would simply not do it justice. You must go. It is not cheap, for four of us it was about $1600.00, but it was awesome. We were taken on a tour of the kitchen, and on leaving were presented with take home bags with the makings of eggs on brioche for breakfast, along with some of their own tea blend, and home made cookies.

I have listed below the menu we ate along with the wines to match.
