Signature dishes by award-winning chefs add to the spectacular views!

 Las Vegas has become one of the top culinary destinations in the world, but not just because of its gourmet food. Several Las Vegas restaurants provide a spectacular view you won't find anywhere else.

See the entire city from a panoramic viewpoint when you enjoy a meal at the Top of the World restaurant at the Stratosphere. Not only are you perched more than 800 feet above the ground, but this fantastic view changes while you eat -- the restaurant slowly rotates, altering your vantage point so that every few minutes you'll have a completely different view of Las Vegas.

The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas also provides an inspiring view of Las Vegas Boulevard. You'll eat inside the famed replica landmark and look out more than 100 feet above the Strip. Across the street, you can watch the fabulous Fountains of Bellagio and a stunning view of the man-made lake while enjoying a memorable meal at Olives.

For an intimate setting with a marvelous sightline of the Las Vegas landscape, try Nove Italiano atop the Palms. Or enjoy the 51st floor setting of VooDoo Lounge at the Rio Hotel, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view from your indoor seating or a table on the outdoor terrace.

At the top of THEhotel at Mandalay Bay sits Mix, with one-of-a-kind culinary creations and another fantastic view of the Las Vegas Strip.

If you've been to Vegas before, take this opportunity to enjoy the newest views of the Strip.  The Cosmopolitan Hotel offers spectacular views looking both North and South from various restaurants including Comme Ca, Scarpetta, and Estiatorio Milos.
