Toronto has plenty of restaurants with great views, but nothing even comes close to the CN Tower‘s famous 360 Restaurant. This stylish spot sits 351 meters (1,151 feet) above street level, giving diners a panorama of the city that’s nothing short of breathtaking, so drop by on your next date night for a meal–and a view–to remember.
As you take your seats, the light is fading over the skyscrapers, and the blue expanse of Lake Ontario stretches into the horizon. If you don’t have a perfect view of it right now, don’t worry, because this is a revolving restaurant. Over the course of your meal, you’ll see it all and then some, from the iconic Harbourfront Centre and the glowing Rogers Centre to the multicolored TIFF Bell Lightbox, among others.
You want to order a drink in time to toast the sunset, so select from more than 550 wines held in the wine “cellar” — which, at this height, is the highest wine cellar in the world — and get a bottle of rosé just in time. Watch the sun sink and the lights of the city start to twinkle as you savor the drink and each other’s company.
The crisp, lightly sweet wine pairs well with the seafood extravaganza you have in mind. You go all out, ordering the 360 Towering Platter, which features three tiers of local seafood. The fresh Malpeque oysters, Atlantic lobster, PEI mussels, and queen crab legs all provide a succulent feast unlike any you’ve ever had.
Now well past sunset, the city below you is studded with glittering lights. You take your sweetheart’s hand and walk out onto the Glass Floor, where you can look through the floor and see straight down. You both get a wonderfully heady feeling, standing there together, and it’s the perfect ending to an unforgettable night.
