10 great casino restaurants for gamblers

No player should go hungry when visiting a casino.

And while you will have to rustle up something special yourself while playing online roulette or online blackjack at home, there’s always a culinary reason to visit a top-end casino.

Feast your eyes and stomachs on the best casino eateries around the world.

10. Picasso

Where: Bellagio, Las Vegas

Try the… warm quail salad

You could fill a top 10 with Bellagio restaurants alone. But we’re trying to give some space to other places around the world.

Let’s kick off, though, with Picasso. The legendary Vegas story goes that owner Steve Wynn stuck an elbow through a $75m Picasso masterpiece while showing it off to guests.

However, you can still enjoy some of the artist’s works as you sit down for a two-Michelin star meal.

9. The Golden Peacock

Where: The Venetian Macao, Macau

Try the… Kandari Murgh Tikka

Voted Best Restaurant 2016, the Golden Peacock is perfect for lovers of Indian cuisine.

There’s a big emphasis on marinated kebabs like their take on the classic Chicken Tikka but the veggie selection is worth ditching the meat for.

8. Wicked Spoon Buffet

Where: The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas

Try the… All you can eat buffet with bottomless drinks ($42+15)

One of Las Vegas’s swankiest new casino-hotels has restaurants to match. While Rose. Rabbit. Lie is more refined and provides evening entertainment, the Wicked Spoon is one of the best all-you-can-eat buffets in town.

It’s one of the more elegant buffets in Vegas and boasts an omelette bar, carving station, plus a great Asian food bar.

7. Top of the World

Where: Stratosphere, Las Vegas

Try the… Wagyu Filet and Lobster Tail

Vertigo sufferers can probably give the highest restaurant in Vegas a miss.

Everyone else, head up to the 107 Sky Lounge, enjoy 360-degree views of Sin City, and tuck in to two-for-one cocktails and Wagyu Ribeye.

6. Buddakan at the Playground

Where: Caesars Palace, Atlantic City

Try the… Tasting menu for two ($60 pp)

If over-sized Buddha statues, rock gardens, and communal tables are your thing, Atlantic City’s Buddakan is for you.

The food is unfussy, and the $60 tasting menu includes four courses.

5. The Buffet at Wynn

Where: Wynn, Las Vegas

Try the… all of it. But save room for a visit to the chocolate fountain.

Voted Best Buffet in Las Vegas, the Wynn all-you-can-eat restaurant is like stepping into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory: marble floors, red canopies, and sleek lighting await.

In fact, you’ll be spending so long looking at the floral arrangements you may forget to indulge in everything from tacos and black mussels to prime rib cooked on an open fire.

4. Bazaar Meat by José Andres

Where: SLS Hotel, Las Vegas

Try the… dainty Sloppy Joe sandwich in a steamed bun. Just kidding, it’s the massive Angus steaks.

Meat-eaters will salivate at this award-winning restaurant complete with fire pit and ‘raw bar’.

The tartars, carpaccios, and cured meats will get you set up for the Wagyu or Black Angus oak-wood cooked steaks.

3. Le Train Bleu

Where: Casino Monte-Carlo, Monte-Carlo

Try the… Roulette

If you can afford to spend a few days gambling in Monte-Carlo, you’re probably not too concerned with the prices at Le Train Bleu, the Casino de Monte-Carlo’s best restaurant.

The views of the Mediterranean draw the punters in, but it’s the Orient Express styling (hence the “train” part of the name) that really looks the business.

Best of all, the roulette and blackjack tables are a stone’s throw from the restaurant doors.

If you’re short of cash, try the €46 ‘Roulette’ (an entree, main and dessert) at the casino’s Le Salon Rose.

2. Restaurant Guy Savoy

Where: Caesars Palace, Las Vegas

Try the… Caviar tasting menu ($170 pp) or langoustine ($75)

Flowers and perfume are banned at this Vegas restaurant overseen by Michelin-starred chef, Guy Savoy – all the better for diners wanting to savour the unbelievable smells coming from the kitchen.

Stay for the artichoke soup with black truffles before venturing into the new Caviar Room to feast on an exclusive menu.

No wonder the restaurant has won Forbes’ five-star award four years in a row.

1. Robuchon au Dome

Where: Grand Lisboa, Macau

Try the…home-made Iberico crispy pork sausage with mushrooms

If you’re visiting the gambling mecca of Macau, a visit to the three-Michelin star home of chef Joel Robuchon is a must. You can enjoy great views of the city while filling your belly with mini-burgers, confit duck leg, or black cod in pepper sauce.

Just don’t crick your neck straining to take in the Swarovski chandelier made up of 131,500 pieces of glass.
