360 The Restaurant on top of the CN Tower, is one of those things you have to do once in your lifetime and I’m surprised it took me this long. It’s arguably Toronto’s coolest dining atmosphere with a revolving view of Toronto more than 351 metres (1,151 ft) below. Take the glass elevator up and feel your ears pop as you look out over the city as well as checking out the glass floor. When we arrived, we were immediately taken to our table..which I thought I’d be disappointed not being right at the window but we got a huge booth with the best view directly looking out.

I have to say it revolved faster than I thought it would and you can actually see it moving. I’m not sure if it was the 4 beers I had before we got there or being able to see it move but it made me slightly dizzy. One full rotation takes about an hour and you do get used to the movement–after a few glasses of wine from the highest cellar in the sky.

Overall the food was a bit average, the service was a bit neglectful, but you’re really there for the view and I have to say it was amazing. We picked a night where the moon turned orange like a big pumpkin in the sky.
