Cucina Locale is a revolving restaurant located in Sydney's west on level 5 of the Blacktown Workers Club. There are views as far west as the Blue Mountains and on a clear day you can see Sydney's CBD, including the Harbour Bridge.
A full rotation of the restaurant takes 46 minutes enabling you to take in 360 degree views. We spent just over 2 hours enjoying the site and fine food. In addition to changing views, the menu changes every 3 months to incorporate seasonal foods.
For lunch I ate Chicken Tenderloins with chips, my mum was so proud as I ate all my chicken up and only left some chips; the chicken was so tasty. For desert I had gelato, it was the best! I wish I could of had more. My favourite part of the meal was the iced water , the ice was just perfection!!!!!
I enjoyed my lunch it was really nice. I ate it all up. Mum said it was real 'chicken', I said it was really tasty! The manager was also very friendly and helped me draw an elephant. I'd like to go back again.
At first glance you wouldn't think this would be a 'family friendly' restaurant. Alyssa even commented, "this must be an adult restaurant", as we passed the nice crisp white table cloths and fancy cutlery, but this thought quickly disappeared. The manager greeted us individually and helped the children settle in and make them feel special. The manager even taught our youngest how to draw an elephant in 5 strokes - I've never had that service from a restaurant manager before.
All questions were answered very quickly and we even had a visit from the head chef to make sure everything was OK or if we could make any recommendations.
I left the restaurant feeling so full and I really wanted to eat my last bit of gnocchi, but I just didn't have any room left. I also left feeling very welcomed and glad we stumbled across this lovely restaurant .
The revolving aspect definitely keeps the kids amused, but if motion is not your thing they also offer seats located near the windows.
This would be a great place to dine of an evening and see the city lights. I would highly recommend Cucina Locale for families or couples. I can say we will be back again!
