360 The Restaurant in the CN Tower

In a city that is already full of iconic landmarks and popular gathering places, one landmark in Toronto surpasses all others. Standing over 550 metres tall, the CN Tower is Toronto’s most instantly identifiable and popular destination. The CN tower is located along the city’s waterfront in downtown Toronto and is renowned for its dazzling light displays that illuminate the city from high above.

While everyone in Toronto knows the CN Tower well, people who have recently purchased a Toronto home might not know they can enjoy a fine meal within a spinning restaurant in the tower itself. If you want to experience the most unique lunch or dinner in all of Toronto, head up the CN Tower to 360 The Restaurant.  Impressively, 360 The Restaurant sits 350 metres above the city. The platform where the restaurant is located rotates a full 360 degrees every 72 minutes, giving diners breathtaking views of the entire city as they enjoy a fine lunch or dinner.

Patrons may choose from a wide variety of finely crafted meal options. Start with a delicious appetizer like seafood chowder, duck wings, or mussels. Then enjoy an incredible main course, with options ranging from honey-rubbed chicken to prime rib to chickpea frites. Finish your experience with a satisfying dessert, like a chocolate and sour cherry cake or sticky maple toffee pudding. The food at 360 The Restaurant is delicious and enjoying your meal while getting a full panoramic view of Toronto from high in the sky makes this the most unique dining experience in Toronto.

Then enjoy a main course of beef tartare, a finely crafted burger, or a grilled striploin steak. Finish your meal with lemon meringue pie or a peach sundae. The dining room at Aloette is cozy and comfortable and is styled after a traditional diner layout, with a long row of booths and countertop with stools. The overall experience at Aloette is just as stylish as the cozy diner feel of the restaurant itself.


When you want to enjoy a quiet night out at a fashionable eatery, head downtown to DaiLo.  And you will end up recommending DaiLo to  all of your friends, Located several blocks from the Toronto waterfront, this trendy restaurant will feel like something incredible that you’ve just discovered for yourself.
