Good Foods and Nice View
Food is tasty and also, the views form the restaurant are very nice. It's a worth for money restaurant.


the view
Food was tasty and generous serves. Waiting staff were experienced and helpful. Room was warm and inviting on a cold day. The view is spectacular: all of Melbourne. The surroundings and gardens are delightful. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.


"Beautiful Sunsets"


Beautiful view and very nice food. Great atmosphere for couples' romantic dine out experience.


Wow....I had heard of Sky High but never visited. I was told it was a tourist place and was expecting something like the penguin island. I was completely wrong. It has a proper restaurant with a full a la carte menu, happy and knowledgeable staff, a full wine list and proper chefs. The food was fantastic - aged eye fillet was cooked perfectly and my boyfriend had the lamb which was juicy and looked fantastic. The restaurant was packed, a little noisy but I prefer that than a dead quiet restaurant with no atmosphere. I was lucky enough to get a table near the window and the views were stunning. Almost got carried away with the occasion and proposed to my boyfriend but waited for him to pop the question instead. No luck though.....boys are so dumb!! Actually, there was a wedding going on upstairs at the time which put me off initially as I thought we would get second rate service and the food would take ages but I was proved wrong again. I highly recommend anyone to eat at Sky High, we loved it......
