Great location day or night. The restaurant food is good (not outstanding but good). The service was good. For what you pay this is ok value for money in such a premium spot.

We booked a Sunday lunch at the Sky High via the internet which was great and very easy to use. We received a reminder email a few days before which included instructions on when to arrive, not too early, that tables are held for only 20 mins, about paying $5 entry at the gate, and the dress code being smart...

The whole evening was very professionally done, everything just seemed to flow really well, the meals came out a regular intervals and were delicious. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, they were so pleasant and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the night. It was a... More

Had dinner their with 6 people mid week. The service was very good, friendly staff and great views. Entree, most of us enjoyed it. I wouldn't recommend ordering the tart. It was dry and tasteless, the rocket salad that went with it had no dressing and was bland. Main, everyone had a good sized serving. Lime in the risotto was... More

The SkyHigh Mount Dandenong Restaurant was booked for 4 young adults and 1 single mum for Christmas lunch 2014. The food was more than enough, it was delicious, well presented and plentiful. The bar staff and service was impeccable. We have already booked our Christmas lunch 2015 and look forward to it!!!. GSimic

Was not up to their regular high standards. The food for the price ($165.00 drinks inclusive) looked excellent online with a well planned menu for the New Year's Eve Gala but when presented - looked well below average and not from qualified chefs (or professional cooks). Some serving staff had limited customer service and clearly lacked experience & training. The... More

A group of us went to the NYE gala, the night was pleasant and the views were lovely, however the food was not very good and it seemed that the Daiquiris were virgin as well as some of the other things available at the Bar. I have been to the restaurant on a different occasion which was fantastic with great... More
