C Restaurant in the Sky, Perth

On a recent holiday to Perth, Western Australia, my family and I visited C Restaurant in the Sky, the city's only revolving restaurant.  It is located on the 33rd floor of St Martins Tower in St Georges Terrace, a main street in the Perth CBD.  

We were seated next to a window, where we were greeted with various magnificent sweeping views of the Perth skyline as we slowly rotated around the circular tower:

It takes just over an hour to make a round trip around the restaurant.

For a mid-week visit, you are required to order three courses (entrée, main and dessert) for $99, if you are not ordering the five course degustation.

My first course was a double-baked blue cheese soufflé with quince gel, roasted hazelnuts, frisee salad and champagne sorbet:

This dish was light and fluffy and tasted just as good as it looked.  The champagne sorbet was a little strange with the warm soufflé, but delicious all the same.

My next course was barramundi with confit potatoes and leeks, grilled prawns,  lemon and garlic puree, buttermilk veloute and shellfish oil:

The lattice was purely decorative and did not have much flavour.  The fish was flaky and soft with  crisp, salty skin.  The lemon and garlic puree was a revelation and made the dish with its zingy citrus flavour.

Our main course was followed with a palate cleanser of lime and raspberry sorbet, which my brother mistook for dessert:

Finally, my dessert was a raspberry mousse, sitting atop a vanilla pastry base, with raspberry sponge and tuile and raspberry sorbet:

This dessert was as pretty as a picture and was devine - smooth and not too sweet, and set off admirably by the fresh fruit garnish.  The sponge pieces were a little dry, but this was easily remedied with a little raspberry coulis and raspberry sorbet.  I could easily have gone for seconds of this.

One of us had a birthday, so they were served with a teeny tiny piece of mud cake topped with a sparkler, reposing on a plate with a greeting in dessert sauce: 

So cute!!

All the while, the restaurant kept revolving, and Perth delighted us with its twinkly night sky:

The service was very friendly and efficient.  Our waiter had only been there for two weeks, but you would never know - he was an absolute pro.  

The hardest part was finding our way out at the end, as we were slightly disorientated after revolving around.

I highly recommend a visit to C Restaurant if you ever find yourself in Perth - the atmosphere, service and food are top notch.

Sounds like your friend had a great birthday! I find myself easily disorientated at those restaurants too :)
