I was taken to SkyHigh restaurant for my birthday (12/2/17) as a surprise, as it is somewhere I have always wanted to go to dine. The staff were very welcoming and service was prompt. Very lovely atmosphere and fantastic views of Melbourne, with lots of families celebrating various events. 3 course roast was delicious, soup, roast beef or pork, and... More

Location. Location. Location. Fantastic food. Fantastic staff. Did I mention the location? If you are after a wedding venue out of the city, then take a look at this.

Celebrated my birthday with dinner at SkyHigh with the family. The service was great and staff were very friendly and helpful. Meal was wonderful! Definitely not hungry afterward and the view was amazing.

The views here are amazing but the view is the only good thing. ate at the restaurant- very disappointing. Staff are just rude - no customer service whatsoever. Food was overpriced and not very good. (We had the fish) There are so many better places to eat nearby other than here. Go for the view and then go somewhere else... More

My partner and I took my partner's mum for lunch, but one meal, the cauliflower florets wasn't very nice. All 3 of us tasted it and agreed it wasn't good. When we returned it saying it was bland the waitress referred it to the chef and came back and said it is what it is. That was disappointing as it... More

I took an overseas visitor there on a Wednesday for lunch. It was 35 degrees outside so we chose to sit inside. The section of the restaurant with a view was only open to people who ordered off the "lunch" menu. I suggested that no one had offered that as an option when I ordered from the coffee shop. I...

Hadn't been here for dinner for years - decided to go with friends. Service was poor - not offered a drink for 20 minutes and then asked if we wanted to order dinner. Main course served on top of entree. Food was generally ordinary and overpriced for what was on offer. Really disappointed and will not be going back there... More

My mum, who is on her first time trip to Australia, and I went there last Wednesday, 25th of January. We ordered for a quiche and hot chocolate because we were starving and we need something quick. The order took 30 minutes to come! When we became anxious at around 20 minutes waiting, the lady who served us (her name... More

The views of Melbourne from this lookout were amazing! And that was on a reasonable day. Im hoping that the next time I visit that its clear so I can see all the way to Geelong. The $6 gate charge for 1 car is nothing and anyone who complains about such a miniscure price for something in their backyard should... More
