Restaurants in Las Vegas

Most of the best restaurants in Las Vegas are to be found within the hotel and casino complexes, and they each fight to sign big names to draw in the crowds. Dining choices are usually overwhelming, even within individual properties, so you should have no problem finding your favourite cuisine.

The restaurants below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Expensive (over $100)
Moderate ($50 to $100)
Cheap (up to $50)

These prices are for a three-course meal for one, including half a bottle of house wine or equivalent, tax and service.

There is an 8.1% restaurant tax in Las Vegas for both eat-in and takeaway purchases. The tax is normally added to the bill at the time of payment, although some buffets and fast-food chains may incorporate the tax in their prices. Service charges are unusual in Las Vegas (except for parties of eight to 10 or more); it is more usual to leave a 15 to 20% tip.


Price: Expensive
Cuisine: Modern Japanese

Arguably the best Japanese option in the city, barMASA showcases the culinary talents of chef Masa Takayama. The sushi and sashimi is simply prepared and ultra-fresh – the boast is that the bluefin tuna was swimming in the seas around Japan less than 24 hours before it arrived on your plate. Other dishes are blended in a distinctive splash of Southwestern Latino spice.

Gonzalez y Gonzalez

Price: Moderate
Cuisine: Mexican

With its 'fiesta' atmosphere of candy-filled piñata toys and brightly lit courtyard dining, Gonzalez in the New York-New York Hotel and Casino is probably just as popular for its selection of traditional Mexican drinks as for its food. Typical meals include burritos, enchiladas and tacos (corn or flour tortillas filled with a choice of meat, vegetables and a spicy sauce).

Located in the iconic Golden Nugget Hotel in the heart of the downtown area, the setting couldn’t be better either.
