The food was shocking! Quite possibly the worst meal I have ever paid for! The atmosphere was lacking and we went there to have dinner with a beautiful view, instead we ended up being tucked away in a corner with a view of the wall. The only good thing about this place was that the waiter was polite. Overall a... More

We dined here for a romantic date night on a Thursday evening. We were blown away by the gorgeous views however felt the restaurant itself had more the feel of a bistro than a nice restaurant. My husband found the portion sizes to be small and I thought my food was pretty bland. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable... More

Fantastic views of Melbourne combined with friendly service make SkyHigh a great choice for dining in the Dandenongs. Don't forget the limo pickup....

Booked for Sunday lunch (10/8/2014). Service was good but the main meal not so good. The roast lamb was cut thick and not that tasty. Limited options for lunch The dessert bar was to die for - many options & delicious - chocolate mousse (yummy). Great views Not so happy about having to pay the $5 entrance fee when dining... More

We enjoyed a delicious high tea in the Sky High restaurant- it was amazing value at $20 per head, and the atmosphere was very special. We had a gluten free person amongst our party, and the separate plate she was given (with pre notice to the event) meant that by no means did she feel like she was missing out.... More

Skyhigh Mt Dandenong: Nice view point, expensive and poor service. Many foreign tourists, not many local Australians. They seem to take advantages of foreign tourists! You must pay at the entrance and then you must pay for attraction such as the Skyhigh Maze. The worst service was at the Skyhigh Maze. The young lady was really not customer oriented.

Have been to Sky High countless times, and it has most certainly changed over the years. Not sure how the entry fee is justified (?) - happy to hear all about it. I must say that it has improved over time (the actual appearance of it). If you are coming for the view, then you will probably enjoy your visit.... More
