The rotating restaurant was very cool and enables lots of fantastic pictures. The menu really is designed for adults and the prices are high. My daughter and I was NZ$160 for mains and dessert so you will need to dig deep. We would go again

We initially set out for the view but decided to have dinner up given it was $28 for the lift to the top and only an extra $47 for a three course meal, totaling $75 - looks expensive but when you think, it works out about £27 for a 3-course meal in a pretty unique location. The view was great... More

Like most people we went for the experience and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, particularly in comparison to the CN Tower last year. Our experience there was good but this was much better. All the tables are directly beside the window and we set up an iPad at the end of the table to do a... More

Been several times up to the revolving Restaurant. Great dining tremendous atmosphere and always something to look at as the Restaurant turns around. When you come to the side where the thrill seekers jump from the Sky Tower everybody wants to watch and contemplate. "Would I do that?" If you want to see all the sites in Auckland; One Tree...

My husband & I had a beautiful meal here on the 13th April. Even though it was the day of Cyclone Cook we still managed to see good views. My husband had the Venison & I had the lamb. Service was excellent too. If you are dining at night and want to go to the shop, go there first as... More

If you want to dine with the views constantly changing of a very scenic city, this is the place to be. A full rotation happens every 60 minutes so it's not a place to rush through your meals at. The food quality doesn't quite reach the standard you expect in a fine dining establishment, but ultimately this is a place... More

The Orbit's first appeal is the location. The Sky Tower has this amazing view from Auckland. But not only the view makes this restaurant amazing. From the hosts to the waiters, everybody who talks to you is very polite and willing. And to make it even better, the food is great! Even with the lack of options (or because of... More

Go for breakfast. The Skytower tix is $29.00 NZD. Get a good breakfast/lunch at Orbit for that kind of money and a free ride to the SkyTower

This is a great place to have a meal and have a great view, we live in Auckland and find the best time to go for a view in this rotating dinner is go before sunset, as you get a free ticket to the dinner suggest you go up to the viewing platform to view Auckland then go to the... More
