After hearing so much of this restaurant we and some friends decided to visit the Sky High restaurant. We were not after the views as it was a rainy day. We had to wait for about 45 mins for a table which is understandable as we did not have a reservation. No complaints here. However the person taking the reservations... More

On Saturday the 12th April we met friends for dinner at Skyhigh Restaurant simply to catch up . We enjoyed our window seat and were lucky we had a clear night and could see the view over Melbourne. We all enjoyed our delicious meals which were served by pleasant staff who went out of their way to make sure we... More

When making my booking for our 1st Wedding Anniversary dinner I requested a window seat for our special occasion. It could not be confirmed until the day and I was over the moon when we were allocated prime position in the front of the restaurant!!! Our meal was exceptional and the staff so very friendly! We had a clear night... More

We had such a lovely evening in the outside area of the restaurant; I couldn't believe how quiet it was, even though there were two large tables outside. The service was impeccable, and although we stayed quite late, continued to be throughout the evening. The service matched the view perfectly, and we will definitely be back. Sky High is to... More

lambshanks, mash and vegies, what could go wrong? Shanks passable, but nothing to write home about, instant mash, half cold, tasted like half cold inatant mashed potatoes taste. The vegies were from a frozen bag, microwaved to a perfectly tasteless state. Pork medallions with beans, turned out to be chewie, off the bone cutlets with 15 mm fat-rim. Not medallions... More

The mash was not instant, we peel, cook and mash the potatoes ourselves, just because our potatoes don't contain lumps (we rice our potatoes) doesn't mean they are instant. All our vegetables are fresh apart from our peas, which come in frozen. I think any customer expecting freshly podded peas in Autumn is clearly unrealistic in their expectations. The pork... More

While enjoying the stunning view from our table by the window, my husband and I enjoyed a delicious lunch, a glass of wine as well as a yummy slice of black forrest cake.

Great service from these guys who even provided FREE Limo transport from Como Cottage to the restaurant. The food was lovely as was the wine. Only downside was we went in the off-season meaning the secondary restaurant on the lower floor was in use rather than the main upper floor restaurant. This did provide good views but did feel a...
