Virtual Tour of Mon Ami

Mon Ami, established 2003

A fusion of French, Finnish and Danish cuisine with multiple International awards over 20 years and still run by just the two of us who actually enjoy mucking about in restaurants. Wahoo!



Just wanting to say thanks for a wonderful evening on Saturday night, both my partner and I loved everything, the food, ambience and your lovely service. Thanks again.
– Santina

It was a lovely night thank you. As always the food was delicious. You both do such a superb job. The ambience of your bistro is so natural and happy. Definitely our most favourite place. Thank you again.
– Sally

We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our Melbourne wedding. The night – and the dinner – was everything we hoped for. A truly special occasion. We thank you for making it happen. It meant a lot to us and to our friends
– Damien & Carole

Thank you very much for looking after us at Mon Ami. We had a wonderful evening and everyone complimented the ambience, the dinner and the hospitality. We are most grateful.

Thank you to you and the Mon Ami Team for a wonderful night. The cuisine, wine, service and atmosphere were all spectacular. The duck and dessert were particular highlights. We shall return! Best wishes.
– Don

I just wanted to thank you both for lunch today… It was lovely! From the time we arrived to when we left we received excellent food and service… We are so lucky to have you in our local area… A chance to spend the day in Paris without leaving home! Thanks again
– Bev

Ulla & Jon, thanks for a marvelous event on Saturday. We had a wonderful time. Everyone was so happy. The food and wine were exquisite, as is your lovely hospitality. Thanks so much!
– Best wishes Fiona and Graeme

Just want to say a big thank you to you and Jon for making our marriage ceremony beautiful. Everything went well and smooth on the day and it would not have been possible without your amazing hospitality and food. We will always remember the day as our special day……

“Every member of the family commented upon how much they enjoyed the venue, the food and drink, and you and Jon being so helpful. It was a truly memorable celebration of a milestone birthday for which the family is very grateful to you both. We knew it would be good but you exceeded our expectations.
Best wishes”

“We were taken to Attica last week and I must say it is better than Vue de Monde – but nothing compares to Mon Ami!!!! “

“Thank you again so much for everything on Saturday! We had the best time, and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely! Thank you for looking after us! Your place was perfect (for our wedding dinner)
With warmest regards”

– Dan and Tina

“We left the menu of 6 degustation type courses to Jon and Ulla with three requests – duck, seasonal (autumn) and French. To provide for a range of tastes for ages 2 to 93 was perhaps a tall order but on arrival a French champagne (or cranberry juice) greeted us. On seating a pear shooter (schnapps or pear juice) then the “real food” as my granddaughter called it, followed – the style could be classic French with a twist but whatever it is termed it was perfect – raw fish curls [ceviche], cheese soufflé and duck boudin (sliced sausage) with calamari risotto between the soufflé and duck. All courses included a local seasonal vegetable. Given it was a significant birthday celebration; a profiterole cake arrived complete with sparklers and doubled as dessert. Now Ulla knows I have a weak spot for her affogato dessert and just when I thought I was complete, it arrived. O and did I mention the pinot? Perfect for lunch and perfect for this menu although I think we managed a bottle of white selected from the wine rack that tempts us every time. Thank you Jon and Ulla for treating our family to a beautifully crafted Sunday lunch for 12 and I do hope this has inspired you to leap into degustation – you will succeed.”
