CN Tower 360 Revolving Restaurant

The inner tourist in me was loud and strong when my friends and I decided to make the ultimate tourist restaurant reservation at CN Tower's 360 Restaurant.

Dockside Restaurant

My Dine Out adventures continue and this time, it's at Granville Island Hotel's Dockside Restaurant which overlooks False Creek and Yaletown.
