In the centre of Blacktown, in Sydney’s western suburbs.

With only half of the fame of revolving restaurants like Summit and 360 Bar and Dining, Hi Lights, which resides on top of the Blacktown Workers Club, is a bit of a hidden wonder. But famous or not, it does spin at a languid speed of one rotation per 45 minutes and offers 360 degree views onto suburban, mountain and city landscapes. Far more enchanting at night when it allows guests to dine in the gentle company of twinkling street lamps, houses and passing cars, it is by no means a bad spot for a relaxing lunch. Although it reaches a bit of a feverish peak for big events like New Year’s Eve, when it offers diners a landscape of a city lit up by fireworks.

Head chef Benny Rebong, who lists the Sydney Opera House on his CV, watches over the Hi Lights menu striking a balance between familiar and fine dining cuisine. A good way to dig into what he has to offer is to start with a garlic and mozzarella bread or a lamb rump. The latter comes served with chickpea, tabbouleh and a mint yoghurt dressing. Mains include top-quality dishes like MSA-grade Black Angus filet mignon which keeps company with a fresh herb, mushroom and skillet potato ragout, and the delectable crispy-skinned Atlantic salmon which sidles up to Moroccan panache and Caserrecia pasta. Dessert presents options ranging from the chef’s ice-cream of the day to a Belgian chocolate tart. There's even a seasonal fruit plate for the health-conscious and a cheese platter for lovers of dairy. All of the meals can be paired with one of the wines from the modest, mostly local and extremely well-priced range.
