THE TEAM

EXECUTIVE CHEF






Chris Bonello
I left Malta at 18 for an adventure in the UK and spent a year working at the Hilton in Edinburgh. After spending time in Europe I moved back home and was later offered an Executive Chef position at RIU in Spain. I spent three years with RIU and then moved to the Gold Coast, as I love the beach, and worked for Palazzo Versace.
Joining the Bistro Vue team is one of the highlights of my career and working for such a renowned chef like Shannon was always a dream. It’s a great reward to give our guests an experience they never forget.

VENUE MANAGER






David Wilson
Before joining the team at Bistro Vue I worked in an exclusive five star Hotel in Scotland where I managed an award winning Restaurant and Bar, it was here I developed a passion for food, wine and service. When arriving in Melbourne I had to find the right place to develop this further and I soon found out that there was only one choice. What I enjoy most about my role in Bistro Vue is the ability to make people happy with an honest approach to food, wine and service in an environment where the customer comes first.

ASSISTANT MANAGER






Debbie Ashton
I left Ireland when I was 18 and completed a degree in Hospitality and Human Resources in Scotland. After 6 wonderful years there and with experiences such as working on a luxury cruise ship, at a five star golf resort and for a Michelin stared restaurant I made the snap decision to move to Melbourne and work at Bistro Vue. Bistro Vue is a special place where there is a genuine interest and passion for food and wine. I was once told that “hospitality is the act of treating complete strangers as if they are close friends". It is a great testament to the whole team when we see guests enjoying their time here and often returning again and again.
