Wow!! The meals were amazing, each dish was packed with flavour. I have dined In Paris at the Eiffel Tower and I can honestly say SkyHigh was of a much higher standard, it tasted amazing and the presentation was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and professional, the service was the best I have experienced in a very long time.... More

Four of us visited for an evening meal. The view from SkyHigh is incredible, unfortunately this view is not fully utilised in their restaurant and only the tables along the window have proper access to the view. We each ordered different items from the menu, including the chicken, lamb and pork. Each of us felt our meals were below grade.... More

We have taken groups of people (12) to the Sky High restaurant several times for lunch and have always had great food, a great welcome and great service. We work with carers who are caring for a person with a acquired brain disorder and we want their respite getaway to be a great experience with great food and that is... More

From the first point of contact by telephone to make a luncheon reservation with this restaurant, I was impressed. I found Kelly to be both professional and obliging and in a conversation a few days later, found Graham an absolute delight to deal with.....friendly, courteous, professional and efficient. I was looking forward to our family dining experience with our son... More

The setting is beautiful and grounds can not be faulted. Do not go to the skyhigh restaurant. It looks like a cafe not a restaurant as you entry. The food is average, the waitresses were good however the supervisor who I believe was called 'Naz' was rude all night to us. There were a few of us and our bill... More

It has been a long time since I have eaten here and what a change. What used to be the restaurant is now the function centre which has the best view when seated. But on a day to day basis they use the bistro and cafe underneath the restaurant. While it has some good views it does not rate nearly... More

After walking in from thick cloud covering the mountains, I was greeted by friendly staff who seated us in front of the open fire. It was lovely and cosy with a warm atmosphere.

I visited SkyHigh Mount Dandenong restaurant during June 2014, for a family lunch. I wanted to book somewhere special, as my elderly grandparents were also down from the country. The drive up the mountain and the views from the top were wonderful, however this is where the positive experience stopped. We had a reservation for seven and were seated at... More
