We went for my 40 birthday what a fantastic experience, i had the eye fillet wrapped in bacon absolutely cooked to perfection, the entree through to the deserts just perfect, the staff/waiters were some of the best i have seen, they were professional, friendly, were always there when we needed them without being in your face, they were just an outstanding group of people, keep up the good work. And finally the atmosphere PERFECT is all i can say outstanding view over Melbourne, crackling fire and ambiance, very few places offer this kind of experience. Thoroughly recommend thank you Sky High, will be back. AAAA +++.

Very glad we chose skyhigh for our night out. Very cozy on a chilly night and the views are unbelievable. Make sure you make skyhigh your next dinber date!!

OMG! Looking for the perfect restaurant to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary was daunting but making the final choice was based on the numerous times we've come up there to visit at night and knew how romantic it was! Now the excellent n friendly staff on that night,the delicious food and the romantic atmosphere inside excel our expectation!!! We left full, satisfied and in LOVE!!! Simply A+..

After many visits "up the mountain" I finally decided to try the restaurant for my birthday this year. We went on a Friday evening in May, so the fire was on, and the stars were out.

The view is something that I was expecting, and is worth checking out regardless of if you visit the restaurant. It's a massive drawcard for the restaurant. So, with a view like that I was expecting laziness from the kitchen staff.

How wrong I was...


The lamb and steak that came to our table were perfectly cooked (medium rare) and complimented by well matched vegies and sauce. The menu's wine recommendation was excellent. And the pudding was a lovely way to end the meal.

Great food, okay. So, poor service then?

Nope! The staff were as high quality as the meals! They made it easy and were so friendly.

I was so happy that it was a great dining experience because we went for my birthday. And by sheer fluke our table number matched my new age!

We will definitely go back.

We booked for the Mother Day Lunch
We were totally not disappointed. We all walked in and said WOW. We stood and took in the remarkable views for 10 minutes.
The Buffet style Lunch was perfect and delicious.
Deserts were ones you kept going back for.
Was a special and memorable day
Thank you Sky High, we will be back next year.
