There is an abundance of restaurants, cafes, diners, and fast foods as well as a wide choice of dishes served in Canada’s Niagara Falls. There are plenty of options that you can walk around and choose whatever fancies your taste bud. However, prices tend to be inflated in Niagara Falls, targeting the hordes of hungry tourists – prices may not be double but just a few dollars more. Not to forget there is an 8% provincial sales tax and 6% general sales tax (GST) added to the bill and the expected 10-15% tip.

For a spectacular view of the Niagara Falls while dining, head to the 520-feet (160 meters) Skylon Tower. There are two restaurants at the top of the tower, a (lower) Revolving Dining Room and (upper) Summit Suite Buffet. The Revolving Dining Room seats nearly 280 diners and makes one complete turn every hour. Prices here are up the scale and not necessarily the restaurant of choice, but the view of the Falls from here is simply breathtaking.
