Excellent food and a willingness to do anything for their customers is the hall mark of SkyHigh Bistro and Restaurant. The food and views speak for themselves but what is different is the willingness to adapt, help out and generally work to make the experience as good as possible. I drive an electric car and driving out to the hills... More

Over 30mins to toast a pre-prepared sandwich, fish and chips delivered instead of the special barramundi and 2 RAW burgers which were still raw after asking for them to be returned and cooked to well done, cold chips and staff that looked unhappy to be at work. Take a picnic is my advice

A great place to take in the views of the city. The views are breathtaking, especially at sunset. We didnt dine at the restaraunt, however from what we could see was amazing. We went up for dessert - there was an amazing range of cakes and slices,however alot had sold out, so get in early. There was also ample parking.

Some nice food here but not a big selection. The menu has just changed and te meals were a little small. The best part was the Salted Caramel Mousse.

Enjoyed lunch with a friend up here and ate the fried flathead tails which was quite tasty. A bit pricey for lunch considering the interior of restaurant is a bit barn like, but still very nice and good service. Awesome view across Melbourne.
