One of the best things about Las Vegas is the sheer amount of restaurants you have to choose from. We wrote about the 9 best buffets (definitely worth a read if you’re planning a visit), so now we thought we would share our opinion of the best restaurants in Las Vegas.


Joël Robuchon Restaurant

A once in a lifetime experience, the Joël Robuchon Restaurant offers a three hour, 16 course meal within the Michelin three star restaurant. Found on the MGM Grand Casino Floor, this restaurant is the epitome of fine dinging and luxury; a special treat for your visit to Las Vegas.

Food type: French

Dress Code: Formal

Average cost: An average two-course meal costs $120 whilst the 16 course, Degustation menu costs $395 – making it one of the most expensive meals in the country.

Creative Travel Rating: 6/10 (Of course the food is delicious and the ambience is breathtaking but the price is a little too much for us).


Pizza Rock

Based in Downtown Las Vegas, this restaurant offers six different types of pizza that is just perfect! Plus, the atmosphere is one of energy and fun; making this place a perfect restaurant for those looking to unwind, pre-drink perhaps but still eat fantastic food.

Creative Travel Rating: 9/10


District One Kitchen & Bar

Inspired by the food stalls and vendors in District One of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – this restaurant offers asian delights. Bringing flavours from across South East Asia, this is a great experience for those visiting Las Vegas and a firm favourite of ours.

Try the Coconut Pork Belly and Lemongrass beef!

RM Seafood

Rick Moonen’s flagship restaurant found in Mandalay Bay. This chef is an expert on all things seafood and serves up incredible and creative options to chose from.

Food type: Seafood

Opening hours: 11.30am – 11pm

Dress Code: Casual

Creative Travel Rating: 7/10 (We love Sushi and Seafood but the price is high so this is a special treat for those that love sushi – opt for the lunch to enjoy the food at a better price).


Gordan Ramsay’s BURGER

Found in Planet Hollywood, of course Ramsay was going to make it this list. If you are looking for a good burger in a casual but comfortable atmosphere, head to BURGER. There are so many different variations of burgers here, you will find one you just love. I always opt for the Pork Chop and Applesauce Burger!

Food type: Burgers

Opening hours: 11am – 2am

Dress Code: Casual

Average cost: Burgers cost around $16 with staters around $13 and desserts under $10.

Creative Travel Rating: 10/10

A good 20 minute drive from the strip, Honey Salt offers arguably the best brunch in town. With a farm-to-table inspired menu and a real community, family feel to it, you would never think you are in Las Vegas at all.

Food type: American bistro

Opening hours: 11am – 9pm

Dress Code: Casual

Average cost: The array of breakfast options cost around $13 whilst All You Can Drink options costs $18. Lunch costs a similar price to brunch whilst dinner mains cost between $24 – $36.

Chada Thai & Wine

This tapas-styled Thai restaurant has 50+ items on the menu along with an extensive wine list.

Food type: Thai

Opening hours: 5pm – 3am

Dress Code: Casual

Average cost: Most of these dishes cost around or under $10 whilst seafood dishes cost around $20.

Luv it Frozen Custard

Of course a dessert restaurant was going to end up on this list! It is me writing the list after all. Anyway, opposite The Stratosphere is this understated dessert haven. The list of sundaes is crazy long, as is the topping options!

Food type: Dessert

Opening hours: 1pm – 10pm

Dress Code: Casual

Average cost: With sundaes costing around $5, this is a steal!

Creative Travel Rating: 8/10 (This is only not a ten because it is only dessert and not actual food)

    Great round up! I’ve been to Las Vegas a couple of times, so my favourite restaurant is Mon Ami Gabi in the Paris hotel – the views from their patio are spectacular!

      Oh awesome, we haven’t tried that one, we will definitely check it out on our next visit!

    So much good food. I love Thai food. Pizza Rock looks pretty amazing with the cascading layers of cheese. I have an obsession with frozen custard, so I have been to Luv It, and it is simply amazing.
