Things started off badly when my girlfriend tripped over and hurt herself in your unlit carpark, and got worse from there. The pamphlet we were given said the kitchen was open until 10, but when we got there before 10 we were told it had already closed. Instead we bought ice creams, which were mostly melted (though we got our... More

We were in the Dandenongs over Valentine's Day weekend so felt it essential to book a restaurant for the Saturday night. This one was mentioned on the website of our accommodation so I decided to go for it. We were not disappointed. The views from the vantage points around the site were amazing with distant views of the Melbourne skyline.... More

We ate at SkyHigh with the set Valentines Day menu and the food was outstanding. There was a shared entree and dessert and separate mains, but having the shared meals made the evening even more intimate. We got a seat right next the window, so had the amazing view. Will be going back again to experience more of their amazing... More

The night we dined here was on Sat 24/1 which was a romantic evening dinner with a 50/50 set menu in their function room which my partner and I shared all the meals and enjoyed every single one. The view was amazing and listening to a beautiful harp player whilst we dined was so relaxing along with fantastic service. This... More

We pre booked on line and requested a window seat for a birthday, which we were given. The staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful with our selections. And the food... our meals were fantastic with our party of 4 each enjoying a perfect meal. The wine was reasonably priced also. We will definitely return, and would recommend to friends... More

After paying to get into the carpark, we walked into the bistro for a pre-booked lunch time meal. We all ordered different food, some from the menu and some from the 'specials' notice board. My food stated it had coleslaw (one of my favourites), but that was a little bit of green cabbage in the burger. We found plastic in... More

We ate at the restaurant down stairs.. The food took 40 mins to arrive and our fish was cold and it was missing olives, bread and lemon. I wouldn't recommend to eat here to anybody... what you pay is not what u get.... I hope they will pull their socks up and fix their food standards.. The best part of... More

We visited this restaurant after pre booking online. When we arrived at 12 noon the restaurant was completely empty and we were shown to our requested "window" seat. The walls of the restaurant are higher than eye level so when you are sitting at your table the view is more of the windowsill than the vista as the restaurant is... More

The view is nice but bright and could do with shade outside. However my husband injured himself on a stick poking out from some badly trimmed bushes, and will end up with a scar. When we told the duty manager she offered no apology or sympathy and acted as if it was doing us a favour to make an effort... More
