Excellent food was served - we enjoyed a lamb shank and sticky date pudding for dessert. Unfortunately the great food wasn’t enough to make for an excellent evening, it appears that the staff aren’t trained as well as they could be, which is a bit disappointing. After mains we waited a considerable time to have our dishes removed and had... More

I was shocked at the service at the bistro this afternoon. They could have been overwhelmed by the amount of visitors but the service and food was appalling. I am disappointed because I always take visitors to this spot. Whilst we were seated , I counted seven tables waking up and leaving. We waited 20 minutes for drinks and about... More

After waiting for 15 minutes we begun watching the man who was making the cold drinks (looking out for our... More

This was our families second trip to The Sky High for breakfast. At the ripe of cost of $50 per head the food is terrible. We thought we would give them a second chance but again hugely disappointed. The food is not hot, mushy packet scrambled eggs, cold bacon and all else in the buffet to a low standard. I... More

I highly recommend the chips and sour cream and a hot drink. The food is average but the staff are excellent and care about the service they provide.
