If you went strictly by numbers, it would seem the French are a minor note in Australian history. Culturally, however, France’s cultural impact has punched way above its weight when compared to the size of the French-Australian population. Bringing over an incredibly rich history of dining and cuisines, French restaurants in Melbourne offer an elegant, centuries-old cultural history that local Aussies celebrate today.
When walking through downtown Melbourne, French steakhouses, bistros, cafes, and bakeries line the streets, each one giving off a distinct hint of succulent braised meats, savory French onion soup, and that unmistakable aroma of freshly baked bread. From croissants to bouillabaisse to béarnaise sauce, French-Australian cooking is said to evoke feelings of joy, comfort, warmth, and romance – sounds Frenchy, right?
Picking the right French restaurant to visit Melbourne can prove quite the difficult task, for all the right reasons. Over the past 100 years, famous French chefs have immigrated from Europe to call Melbourne home. In doing so, French restaurants in Melbourne have recently undergone a transformative “culinary moment”. Multiple Michelin star chefs operate within the city limits, opening incredible restaurants like Vue de Monde, owned by celebrity chef Shannon Bennet. Found on 525 Collins St., Vue de Monde is top of the local food chain – it would vie for a 3-star Michelin rating annually, one of the highest honors for a restaurant in the culinary world!
