Menus

We offer a range of delicious menus. Whether you are after canapés, walk & fork or a fine dining affair we have something to cater to your vision. Our talented team of Chefs are also happy to meet with you a curate a menu especially for your day.  

If you are wanting a sit down meal, you can choose from 2 or 3 courses and we can accomodate your preferred service style;  shared family plates, buffet or  individually plated.

All our menus cater to main dietary requirements—vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free, so let your taste buds decide.

We offer a seasonally changing wine and cocktail menu, complemented by a full bar with a variety of tap beers, wines, and cocktails.

We can set up the bar in any way you want, either: 

  • Open 'cash bar' 

  • Arrival drinks only 

  • Subsidised drinks where guests pay half

  • Set drink limits

  • Reduced drink offering with a bar TAB. 

You choose the drinks for the TAB, and we create a custom menu for each event, complete with images. 

 

We also offer a $16 mini cocktail list, so you can offer cocktails without the usual price tag.

Drinks

VYC features elegant decor with simple decorations. 

Our event planner can arrange decorations, DJs, bands or entertainment for you, but you are also welcome to book your own and transform the space to suit your vision for your wedding.
