Vue de Monde is the pinnacle of fine-dining in Melbourne, an institution by Chef Shannon Bennett that sits on the 55th floor of the iconic Rialto tower. After exiting the elevator, we were immediately taken in by the grandeur of the setup. Where else can you have a meal perched atop of a skyscraper with vast panoramic views as the sun sets over the city? Jaw-dropping and memorable, that's for sure.

Although this was our first visit, the menu here has evolved from its previous classical roots to a lighter and more natural approach. The kitchen is open, which allows diners to witness the symphony of chefs and servers orchestrate in perfect harmony. Aside from the ambiance and visual spectacle, the food itself was balanced and thoughtful with a bit of gastronomic flair. The team celebrates local and sustainable produce. From the outset, we were presented with beautiful, heirloom and organic vegetables, much of it grown on their own property. As suspected, there was a "wow" factor course after course, alongside drink pairings (both wine and juices). Truly an incredible dining experience!
