Vue de Monde
Level 55 Rialto, 525 Collins St Melbourne, VIC 3000
There are no other words to describe a dining experience at Vue de Monde except ‘pure perfection’. No less would be expected from the lauded Shannon Bennett, who is known for his passion for classical food made using only sustainable, local produce. Vue de Monde is certainly one of Melbourne’s proudest gems, and transcends the notion of simply food to become a true experience of senses.
From the moment we stepped out from the elevator and walked through the opulent wine cellar to the beautifully earthy and atmospheric restaurant, we were greeted with impeccable service. It was clear that everything from the décor to the view to the cutlery and, of course, the food were prepared with the utmost attention to detail.
The menu at Vue de Monde is a degustation of approximately 14 courses, ranging in price from $230-275. The menu can change from day to day, as well as seasonally depending on available produce, but the idea is the same – an amazing culinary experience of flavours and textures to be enjoyed over several hours.
