Overlooking Melbourne’s bustling business district lie’s Shannon Bennet’s, Vue de Monde “World View”. Situated on the 55th floor, Bennet’s French style restaurant offers local, organic ingredients, which are transformed into beautiful edible artworks. From the minute the receptionist signals the elevator through to finishing a few petite fours in the bar area, you are swept “across the city and beyond”.

We selected the degustation menu of 6 courses and arrived at 1:30pm and finished at 5pm. I tried a variety of food that I would never have touched in a million years! The food challenged my palette and took me out of my comfort zone. I decided to break the barriers of safe eating and test my ability. Vue de Monde takes you on a unique dining experience!
