Vegas can be many things at once, classy and tacky, relaxing and hectic, beautiful and gaudy. The food there is no different. Las Vegas, if you know where to go, boasts some of the best restaurants in America, whilst simultaneously playing host to endless food courts and tourists traps charging high prices for mediocre food.
For me, a holiday can be made or broken by the meals I’ve had over the course of it. As such, with so many places to choose from, and a probably already hectic lineup for how your time will be spent in Vegas, how do you ever go about picking somewhere? Never fear, I’ve got you covered, from one of the most insane breakfasts I’ve ever eaten, to a relaxed lunch spot away from the madness of the strip and a perfectly theatrical Vegas dinner, this is where I would eat for each meal of the day!
Sterling Brunch, Bally’sBottomless. Perrier-Jouët. Champagne.Do I have your attention now? Good, because Bally’s is really one you can’t miss in Vegas. Bally’s takes the idea of bottomless brunch to new levels. Running for 25 years, the Sterling Brunch at Bally’s is truly a Las Vegas institution, that I intend to return to on every future trip. From the Perrier-Jouët, which flows freely throughout the brunch, to the endless helpings of brunch delights ranging from a classic eggs Benedict to delicious entrée options such as filet mignon, lobster tails and caviar. All of the food is phenomenal and the service truly attentive.And did I mention the bottomless champagne?

The Country Club, The WynnDon’t have breakfast the day you visit here. This is a steak restaurant you’ll want to visit with an empty stomach. Overlooking the 18th hole of The Wynn’s golf club, you would be forgiven for forgetting you were in the Nevada desert at all whilst looking out over the peaceful greenery and waterfalls. Inside the restaurant, the atmosphere is cosy and homely enough for a relaxed lunch, but also exudes enough sophistication (and has an impressive enough cocktail selection) for an elegant evening meal.If you’re a real meat lover, kick things off with the extremely generously sized truffled beef tartare for a truly memorable start to the meal. All the cuts of meat they do here look divine, but you can’t go wrong with a classic filet mignon. Personalise it with a topping of lobster tail or scallops.3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Le Cirque, BellagioEat inside a circus whilst you watch the famous fountains of The Bellagio dance for you just beyond the window. Holding numerous prestigious accolades, including a Michelin star and the AAA five diamond award, Le Cirque is a truly iconic restaurant and one of LasVegas’ best.Offering a choice between either a prix-fixe menu ($108 per person), the 5 course Degustation Tasting Menu ($135 per person) and the 10 course Menu Prestige ($350 per person), Le Cirque caters to all appetites. We opted for the Degustation Tasting Menu.Highlights of the meal for me included the Japanese Yellowtail served with a creamy avocado puree, and the touch of theatre brought on at the end of the meal with the Chocolate ball, doused in molten chocolate to reveal white chocolate ice cream and a hazelnut crunch.

I’ll be heading back to Vegas as soon as possible, so any other restaurant recommendations are welcome!
