360 Restaurant CN Tower is one of the most popular Toronto attractions because it’s all-around exciting to dine atop of one of the world’s tallest structures but also because of the incredible view of the sparkling city beneath. The restaurant is centered in the tower’s main area where Toronto and gleaming Lake Ontario are visible. It boasts the highest wine cellar in the world designed after a classic underground cellar featuring cherry doors, redwood wine racks, and a bottle capacity of more than 9,000.The selection has itself has won numerous awards and boasts choices of more than 500 Canadian and international varieties.
One of the absolute best features of the 360 Restaurant is that it revolves so one literally cannot get a bad view no matter where they’re seated. The outer isle is the most coveted, where tables edge into the glass, the only obstacle between the diner and 1151 feet. On the inner side are plush booths built into the restaurant so they overlook the tables below with front row seating in a way that they’re not intrusive.
The view complements the food in every way; several options in fresh seafood platters, fixed dinners featuring Ontario market fresh foods, and irresistible desserts dot the menu. Though expensive, prices remain reasonable for a fine dining experience in such an amazing location. Visitors enjoy free entry to the 360 restaurant for dining and can also access the Glass Floor and Look Out for free when purchasing main course. Guests with reservations should proceed to the Check-In Reception situated at the tower’s Mezzanine.
The intrepid might also want to try one of the newest additions to the Guinness Book of World records called Edge Walk, a 360-degree walk around the main pod perimeter of the CN Tower opened in August of 2011. The hands-free Edge Walk commences with groups of six people and a tower guide, all safely harnessed from above by rail tethered to a special harness. It is quickly becoming one of the leading things to do in the city.
