Went here once before as part of a larger group (about 14 people) and the breakfasts all took forever to be served and arrived cold, they were not busy so I dont know why. Gave them the benefit of the doubt and have tried them again, this time only two people. Food again took forever and was only luke warm... More

What a very special way to spend my special birthday!! We booked table number 22 (best view) and were very lucky that the night was clear and the lights of Melbourne were laid out before us! The service was great and the food was very good. I had the scallops and my husband had the prawns for entree, then Barramundi... More

went to Skyhigh for our Anniversary on Wednesday 24th, with family & a couple of friends. The view is awesome on a clear night. Have been a couple of times before, really enjoyed it, unfortunately this time the service was a little bit ordinary. Waited too long for our drinks once we had ordered them, food was great. Staff didn't... More

If you're a hiking enthusiast and by that I mean more than climbing the 11 steps to the viewing platform then it's a bit of a waste. No decent trails and looks more set up for wedding functions than as a tourist location. We hiked about 7k to get there then decided we should have probably driven and hiked somewhere... More

Staffs are nice and things are well prepared. All special requests from us are met. Glad to have chosen this place for a special time. If weather was better that day it would be perfect. :)

We took a drive up the Mt. Dandenong Tourist Rd on a Sunday morning for a group breakfast/brunch booking for 8, to celebrate a birthday. I was our first visit to dine at the downstairs cafe. Overall we had a fantastic experience. We were greeted by friendly staff, who were attentive to all needs. There was some minor timing issues... More

I was very disappointed with our lunch at Skyhigh. I didn't expect it to be over the top as it is a tourist destination and you always pay more for average food. I assumed when I received the email stating the time of our booking and if you were late the table would be given away that perhaps we were... More

Decided to go up and check out Skyhigh after reading some ok reviews. Looked like a place to get a different vantage point of Melbourne. After what was a nice drive up through some nice roads we got there to find that there was a $5 entry fee into the grounds. After a quick back track to the closest ATM... More
