Skyfeast at Sydney Tower: 360 Degree Views of Sydney Harbour
If you are planning a special lunch or dinner and would like a restaurant with an incredible view, you can’t go past Sydney Tower.
Skyfeast at Sydney Tower offers food lovers a unique dining experience with stunning views of the city skyline. Held on the top level of the tower you can enjoy an all you can eat sumptuous feast while taking in the sweeping panorama of Sydney.
With a range of delicious dishes on offer, Skyfeast is the perfect way to enjoy a special day or night out with family and friends.
My son recently turned 21 and whilst we had several celebrations planned for this milestone, I wanted to take him for a special meal just the two of us.
I didn’t tell him where we were going and only gave him directions to a carpark nearby. As we started walking towards the tower, I asked him to turn around, so I could take a picture (with the Sydney tower in the background).
He happily obliged and when I was done taking the photos he finally asked where we were going. I simply pointed at the tower behind him.
His face lit up when I told him we would be dining at the top of the tower, which has a revolving restaurant and all you can eat buffet.
I booked a window table through the Sydney Tower Skyfeast website. The cost was a little higher but the views were incredible. The seating was 90 minutes, which meant we got to see the full 360 degree view of the city. One full revolution takes 70 minutes.
Luckily it was a mostly sunny day and the views were like nothing I’ve seen before. I couldn’t get enough.
And the food was incredible as well. The buffet included a wide variety of delicious food from all over the world and catered to many dietary restrictions including:
- Gluten free
The menu on their website indicates what each dish contains, eg. dairy, nuts, shellfish, sesame, soy etc, so you can choose dishes which suit your dietary requirements.
Some of the delicious dishes that were offered included:
- Sydney rock oysters
- Tiger prawns
- Eggplant caponata
- Middle eastern cous cous salad
- Creaole seafood curry
- Greek style grilled chicken
- Braised BBQ pork belly
- Farfalle with Alfredo sauce
- Apple cider glazed turkey breast
And for dessert, we were spoilt with:
- Chocolate hazelnut tart
- Passionfruit coconut cream cake
- Cookies & cream cheesecake
- Carrot cake
- Matcha Tiramisu
During the booking process I was asked whether it was for a special occasion, so I indicated it was my son’s birthday.
When we finished our meal, I was pleasantly surprised to see one of the staff members bring a special “Happy Birthday” dessert for Jordan.
