This is the best restaurant on the strip so for us one of our usual haunts. Visited twice during our stay - once for the buffet and once for our usual chateaubriand. Both really nice. You can eat in or out and the owner and staff are friendly attentive and smart. Well worth a visit. The owner also owns the... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time after reading previous reviews on here. Well worth a visit - meal was very tasty with a varied menu. Staff were great and the chef took time out to ask diners about their meals. Would recommend a visit.

We had a lovely meal but found the restaurant to be full of English people ordering fish and chips, not very sophisticated ambience but the food was good.

We knew to look out for this restaurant as it was so highly praised on TA but stumbling on it one evening we were lucky enough to find a table (we advise booking in advance as it's VERY popular particularly on BBQ nights). We'd found a couple of other restaurants that we felt happy eating in but this one trumped... More
