The restaurant at the top is so cool. It slowly revolves 360 degrees within the space of an hour so you can get a complete view of the city from all directions. It took us a little over 2 1/2 hours to finish eating! Ha ha 1. there were 19 of us in the group (Bro. Jacobs' sister was with us) and 2. we had a full on 3 course meal with dessert and everything. It was so fancy! For an appetizer I chose their handmade ciabatta bread. I had no idea they were going to bring me a mini loaf! So much bread! My table all ordered different desserts so we could all share and taste the different choices. The peanut and cherry parfait and the pavlova were the best.Reflection of the Skytower in one of the buildings across the street. Cool, eh?Displayed feet: Jess, me, Janet
