With the stunning view from Scenic World's revolving restaurant, that sensation is truly possible... Famous for being the first in Australia with a revolving floor, The Skyway Restaurant has had a makeover. It's once again owned and operated by the Hammon Family and there are some exciting new menus. The restaurant is located on the top floor of Scenic World, overlooking the Jamison Valley and every guest gets a view of the famous Three Sisters as the restaurant's floor rotates. With such a beautiful backdrop, it's no surprise that it's also becoming more popular for weddings, corporate and other functions. Being fully licensed and able to seat up to 200, the restaurant is an ideal setting for a special day or function. As new Food Services Manager Brett O'Connor says, "We're committed to a long running, high standard of catering and have had very positive feedback so far". Head Chef Geoff Wainwright has been with the restaurant for some five and a half years and is excited about the changes being made. "We've come a long way since the 'good old days'," he says. "We're moving away from pre-manufactured products and are producing better quality and more updated menu items." Geoff is keen to encourage locals to come along and experience this dining experience in their own magnificent backyard -- "Come and look at us now!" he suggests. Diners can choose from an extensive buffet menu including sumptuous roast lamb and pork, mouth- watering salmon, Moroccan chicken, soups, fresh salads and much more. If you are visiting the Blue Mountains on Christmas Day, you will find traditional items on the menu including turkey, ham and Christmas pudding. Another drawcard to the 'new look' Skyway Restaurant is Sous Chef Pierre-Andre Fouard, who joined the team recently, having previously run local restaurant Escargot.
