Pie in the Sky is an institution among the fantastic eateries in the Dandenong Mountains. The restaurant is decorated in colonial style and the warm wooden decor provides a unique look and relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant has three seating levels including outdoor.

Pie in the Sky does not take bookings, but I have been on a variety of occasions and have never had a long wait for a table. The award winning pies come in a variety of flavours, ranging from the classic meat pie through to vegetarian pumpkin, to the more unusual tandoori chicken and spinach and beef rendang. They also have a wonderful array of salads, gorgeous scones and other deserts and potato dishes.

On this occasion, I dined in a party of three on a weekday but despite it being school holidays, we were lucky enough not to wait for a table.

I ordered the gourmet salad, which was a generous serving. The salad includes such ingredients as beetroot, artichoke and asparagus. My two guests ordered the Aussie meat pie, which is a multiple gold medal winner (as advertised on the menu).

Dependent on additional cost, you can add salad, chips, peas or mash or a combination of two. The pie was said to be very good with perfect crust and tasty filling.

The cost is really very reasonable - on average a meal is priced around $12 (without a drink).

This is a fantastic restaurant to go to with overseas/ interstate guests, for family outings or just a good pie craving.
