My daughter and I had a really lovely time at SkyHigh Mount Dandenong. We had a delicious lunch at the restaurant and coupled with the amazing views outside, it truly was a day to remember with such gorgeous ambience. The staff were so friendly and courteous and the food, including desserts after our meal, were sensational! We will definitely visit... More

I took my partner on a date here as mount Dandenong is one of my favourite places in Melbourne. We arrived and were promptly seated and presented with our menus. After having a look at the menu we were asked if we would like something to drink. Drinks arrived in a timely manner and we ordered our entrees. Garlic bread... More

We have visited Sky High on a number of occasions, from a romantic anniversary dinner to numerous visits with the kids and even two wedding receptions. Each time the views are different, but equally amazing, different weather and different light depending on the time of year/day. The service is always excellent, comfortable and friendly. The food is generally very good... More

Our visit to SkyHigh was beyond our expectations. The staff were great and provided excellent service. A great variety of food was served and there was plenty of it. The atmosphere was friendly and the view from SkyHigh was stunning. Despite a set time, the staff were 10 to 15 minutes late in opening the doors.

The sky over Melbourne obscured the view, but still had ALOT of fun. Site has Hedge Maze where visitors collect stamps as they work their way through. Finish the maze and receive a little "I WAS AMAZED BUTTON." Also included a beautiful English Garden with lily pond. Amenities included cafe and take-away food store. Well worth the visit.

The panoramic views are the big attraction. I attended with my partner last month and this was a rare lovely clear day. Food was not worth the $20 pp as there were no fresh slices or tarts or petite fours or pastries....just packet biscuits, a sweet scone, dried out rock like savoury scone, rubbery frittata. Finger sandwiches were tasty, friands... More

We did not have a booking but was so lucky to have a table. The staff were efficient, friendly and accommodating. The food came out quick and hot. The quality was 5 stars. The best part was when we paid the bill we were surprised as it was so cheap......I wish I lived in the area. Would have come every... More

It has changed a bit since I was last there 10+ years ago... Paid parking... That sucks but worth the look. It was a weekend so super busy. The view is unmatched. It's a shame they planted an English garden up there a native garden would have been far better to showcase the native flora and fauna rather that a... More
