Staffs are nice and things are well prepared. All special requests from us are met. Glad to have chosen this place for a special time. If weather was better that day it would be perfect. :)

We took a drive up the Mt. Dandenong Tourist Rd on a Sunday morning for a group breakfast/brunch booking for 8, to celebrate a birthday. I was our first visit to dine at the downstairs cafe. Overall we had a fantastic experience. We were greeted by friendly staff, who were attentive to all needs. There was some minor timing issues... More

I was very disappointed with our lunch at Skyhigh. I didn't expect it to be over the top as it is a tourist destination and you always pay more for average food. I assumed when I received the email stating the time of our booking and if you were late the table would be given away that perhaps we were... More

Decided to go up and check out Skyhigh after reading some ok reviews. Looked like a place to get a different vantage point of Melbourne. After what was a nice drive up through some nice roads we got there to find that there was a $5 entry fee into the grounds. After a quick back track to the closest ATM... More

Certainly worth the $5 entry fee to park. The views are absolutely magnificent. We arrived in daylight and stayed on to have a meal in the restaurant. The gardens, maze, coffee shops etc allow you to take as much time as you like. Found the restaurant to be value for money and the staff were excellent. Did not have to... More

Whether you are new to the Skyhigh Restaurant experience or have returned for a visit after many years to reminisce the old grounds and heyday of the original Skyhigh, you wont be disappointed. The view remains captivating, the air will renew your senses, and the atmosphere of being above the clouds will leave you feeling a sense of magic. All... More

We had family visiting from New Zealand and what could be better than taking them to the Sky High Restaurant. Yes we had to pay a $5 fee to enter the park, but it was worth it. The views are magnificent although the view of the city was covered by haze and they enjoyed the garden. We had an ok... More
