Ethics and Values

Vue de Monde’s biggest value is sustainability. They strive to make as many components of the restaurants follow this. They source sustainable fish, organic food and run a carbon neutral kitchen. They try to source food and furniture from local suppliers. Energy efficiency is important to Vue De Monde with installing latest technology in order to help reduce that amount of unsustainable sources used. Recycling is used, with their tiles and cutlery being recycled. Production efficiency is achieved through not only reducing the amount of waste but water usage and suitable water drainage.

Menu Overview

They do seasonable menus to support the locality of their produce. It is a degustation menu. The menu often uses locations of the main ingredient, tying back to locally sourced ingredients. Great focus is placed on the culinary techniques in order to produce beautiful food that appeals to all senses. http://www.vuedemonde.com.au/pdf/VDM-Menu.pdf
