Coffees are absolutely awful!! I visited last Saturday after organising a spontaneous day out, and regretted it purely because of the coffees. The views are perfect even on a cold winters day. But everything requires $$$$ from entry to the carpark and extra $$$$ to go into a maze for 15 minutes. Not worth it! The only reason they get... More

It was a cold winters day but the venue was toasty warm, with fresh flowers on the beautifully laid out table. The staff were friendly and we had a great seat at the window, would have been absolutely breathtaking if it wasnt foggy, but that didnt distract from the amazing high tea. Was incredible value for the price, looking forward... More

A fabulous place to have dinner, mostly though because of the views. The food is ok, but the atmosphere in the restaurant isn't great. It could be done so much better to capitalise on the amazing location.

We were looking for somewhere different for my daughter's 21st lunch and decided on Skyview. The view was beautiful, the service friendly and attentive and the food wholesome and nourishing. We booked even though we probably didn't need to but it ensured a window seat. Lovely lunch venue, even in the middle of winter.

We attended a wedding last year and were expecting to be really impressed. The view was wonderful and of course the marriage of our friends was beautiful. The food however was very ordinary. Service not much better. I wouldn't go out of my way to recommended this venue.

We haven't been to Skyhigh in over twenty three years and won't be waiting that long to return again! Service was warm and welcoming and our afternoon high tea was both beautifully presented and delicious. Highly recommend and we'll be back again soon!

Tremendous views, food was pretty good. The place has so much potential I just wish it was better! It is one of Melbourne's best tourist attractions but it is just so vanilla. The setting is stunning but the food not so much. Service is passable.
