Skylon Tower

Well, I am taking you back in time now. We ate at Skylon Tower on our first ever trip to America back in 2011! It is a beautiful revolving restaurant on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls – incredibly romantic when dining in the evening.

We had 8pm reservations and walked from our hotel on the US side, across Rainbow Bridge to Canada and then the 10 minute walk to the Tower. At night, The Falls light up with different colours making it just magical. Niagara Falls is perhaps my favourite place in the United States and it was this first day there, that made me fall in love.

On arrival at Skylon Tower, we took the elevator up to the dining room and were promptly seated at a table next to the window. The sun was setting and the room was candle-lit with a pianist playing softly nearby – incredibly romantic I know!

As a Vegetarian who was under 21 at the time, I ordered their homemade Lemonade (sweet and fruity) and Grilled Vegetables Stroffolino (also delicious!) whilst Calum tried the Chicken Feuillete, of which he very much enjoyed. The restaurant revolved around, giving us a beautiful view of the Falls and Canada.

Creative Tip: Don’t leave things the window ledge! I went to take a photo, popped the camera down and 10 minutes later realised the camera was 5 tables behind us as we were revolving. 

We finished the meal off with cake (of course), I had the Chocolate Amaretto Torte which was so yummy and perhaps enough reason to go back to the restaurant just to eat it again! Calum enjoyed his Crème Brulèe and we continued to have a few drinks after the meal. This restaurant takes Canadian dollars and our meal of two mains, one side of garlic bread, two desserts and four soft drinks cost us $142 CAD (about £85).

Whilst eating at the restaurant, you also have access to the observation deck which makes for a beautiful end to an evening. Skylon Tower is a romantic restaurant with a view and is perfect for couples in the evening. The food was all delicious and the menu is varied with some good vegetarian options. Although the meal did cost quite a bit, we felt the price was reasonable considering your location, view, service and food quality.

NOTE: If you are visiting Niagara Falls in the Winter, make sure you head to the Niagara Icewine Festival!

We love Niagara Falls! Are you heading there soon? Check out this hilarious wax museum and our video of the jet boat that whizzes you through the rapids!

  1. I have always wanted to visit Niagara Falls, it looks stunning! Especially in your photos! I’ll have to find someone to come with me to this incredible restaurant though as my other half is terrribly scared of flights, which is a shame because he would love the observation deck!! I could do with a piece of chocolate ammeretto cake right about now

  2. This sounds like such a beautiful setting to eat! And the grilled veg stroffolino sounds divine (fellow veggie over here!). Great tip about not putting your things down – I laughed when I read that your camera ended up a few tables behind you.

  3. As someone who lives about an hour and a half away from Niagara Falls, I never really considered it a big tourist destination. As I grew up and travelled more, I started to realize how many people actually loved visiting it!
