Probably one of the fancier restaurants in Auckland. You have to take an elevator 52 floors up to get to it. Located in the Sky Tower itself, this is one restaurant that will be a challenge for those who are afraid of heights – the views, food and service are literally in the sky! Their food is fancy as it gets – this is not the typical Casino food on the lower floors but a true dining experience. Come here for a special occasion with a loved one or a fancy night out with friends.
The menu is fancy, pretentious with some French words thrown in to make you feel like an idiot. But the food is divine, you can tell the calibre of cooking is not of your normal cooks – their mains whilst not entirely generous do have subtle flavours that show that they use only the freshest produce and cuts of meat.
From getting to the elevator, being seated and taking your meals – Dining at Orbit is an experience. Just getting to the restaurant can be frightening for some – parts of the elevator floor are glass which can scare the crap out of height fearing individuals! However you can tell that everyone working at Orbit has been trained thoroughly to ensure you leave Orbit with a memorable experience.
You’ll be paying for a good meal, the price reflects the quality of the meal of what you’re ordering.
The views from the restaurant are amazing - You can see the entire Auckland CBD!
