Kids under 5 are free. the guy at the skyline gondola ticket counter was able to book us a table by the window which was fantastic. Has high chairs and ramp. easy to push stroller in. Staff were great and friendly. Martin showed and... More

I took my boyfriend there for dinner, expecting good food, most good was ok, but some of the food was average, most of potato's were hard, and some were not very nice. love the dessert bar, if there was label on them would be perfect.

Had a fantastic time up at Skyline, went for a luge and then had dinner. Great system of checking in and then being called back for a table (Very clever first in first served gets the window seats so encourages you to get up there early) But was well worth it. Food was replaced straight away when they ran out... More

Great grilled meat and seafood options, excellent service, but needs a soft serve machine to make the dessert station complete.

Dear Simmi81, Thank you for sharing your experience at Skyline Restaurant. Our new rotisserie, recently extended grilled and seafood sections seem to be a favorite with many guests. We have opted for tubs of ice cream instead of soft serve machine and chose locally sourced vanilla ice cream made with natural vanilla bean seeds, as well as the New Zealand... More

The Skyline Restaurant was phenomenal! Our daughter actually took us here for dinner, and we are so glad she did! There are multiple food stations containing every kind of cuisine you can imagine. All in all, buffet food is buffet food, but I would consider this above average. Definitely come here hungry! I would recommend coming during daylight hours when... More

Nothing particularly wrong with this place, its all you can eat seafood. But it isn't the best seafood you can have. If quantity is your thing, dine in. Good value for money.

Second time we have been here since 2012. The first time was for dinner, so opted for a lunch this time. The views are fantastic and in the 2 hours you can spend there, you'll see anything from blue skies to changing weather conditions that bring snow. The food is okay, not outstanding and not something that I would normally... More
