    Cafe Bellagio: Far Better than Anticipated

    The huge restaurant between the Bellagio pool complex and Conservatory is a delightful space, with brightly colored fabrics and pastels lending a garden environment to what is basically one of the cheaper dining venues of the Bellagio Hotel. The best tables overlook and are open to the Conservatory, great for people watching. Open continuously, it offers a complete breakfast lunch and dinner menu 24 hours a day for those who have lost track of time in the casino. Menu items extend from cheerios to filet mignon with prices to match. We really like the open air atmosphere and wide spacing of tables, more a summery restaurant than a cafe.

    No, we were not happy with the alcoholic refreshments ( see warnings and dangers tip ). But otherwise we had to be very satisfied with our lunch here. As many internet comments indicate, service is slow and inaccurate, yet our older server was friendly and helpful and his tiny miscues might simply be attributed to the earliest phases of senile dementia and forgiven. We cannot understand complaints about relatively high prices in this setting - when one is getting a true 5star room and hotel for $160 a night, they should realise that the hotel has to make some money somewhere. And compared to New York, the prices weren't really that high.

    An assortment of hamburgers, salads, and sandwiches ordered by our posse all garnered high marks. The artistically presented burger with fries imaged was cooked exactly as ordered and excellent. My beloved P calls her salmon burger the best in her experience. And salads were large with fresh ingredients and plenty of the specialty item like shrimps and chicken. As for the coffee, well, this is Las Vegas.

    Many of the internet reviews do carp about service and prices, but most comments include reference to at least one excellent menu offering ranging from an entree to dessert to whatever. we agree - nice place.

    Cafe Bellagio: Huge Portions

    by dcayres Written Aug 1, 2007

    We ate lunch couple of times at Cafe Bellagio, it is located by the pool so very convenient. They have a good selection of sandwiches, burgers and larger meals. We both had the sandwhiches with a chips, the sandwiches were huge we could have shared one between us and you got plenty of chips and it was a very reasonable price.

    Cafe Bellagio: Breakfast Haunt in Hotel

    by boojum Written Mar 1, 2007

    Food was of good quality, Capucchino from a general machine and not good and orange juice was very sweet and not freshly squeezed as surely it should be in a 5 Star resort. It is not a special place to go to and if you want gelato go to Gellato bar which does only that in the Hotel

    Favorite Dish: Waffles were very good and so was the fresh fruit plate

    Cafe Bellagio: Not great coffee shop food for twice the price...

    by TravelChick67 Updated Jun 17, 2004

    This was a major disappointment. You would think for $17.95 you could get REALLY, REALLY good fish and chips. NOT. The breading was a bit doughy and thick, not crispy enough, and the fries were so stale I had to send them back. The second batch was much better but still not up to par.

    I've had MUCH better fries at the deli counter in the Flamingo and the food court at Venetian. There is no excuse for bad fries when you are charging $18 for the meal.

    My husband's meatloaf was much better but he says for the price, he'd rather have it at Cheesecake Factory.

    Favorite Dish: Now, I will say, we went there at 1am but, if this place is a 24 hour coffee shop then shouldn't everything be at least "good" no matter what time you go?

    I say yes, it should, and this was not.

    I did see a few omelettes that looked very nice but if you're not going for breakfast, I would skip it.

    Cafe Gelato at Bellagio: Best Gelato in Town!

    by TravelChick67 Written Jun 7, 2004
    Inside the cafe and our 2 yummy gelatos!

    If you like gelato/ice cream, you're in for a treat. This place makes the best stuff I've tried outside of Italy and we always make sure to stop here at least 2-3 times on every trip to Vegas.

    Favorite Dish: I haven't tried every flavor (yet!) but, these I can personally recommend...

    Chocolate (to die for, dense, rich, intense and not too sweet, more of a dark chocolate)
    Straicitella (basically chocolate chip)
    Amarena (dark cherry and not too sweet)
    Mango (so refreshing!)
    Coconut (ditto)
    Melon

    Cost is $5 for a single and $6 for a double. So, if you're on a budget for 2 people, get the double and share. You don't quite get double the ice cream but you get plenty and you'll end up spending $6 instead of $10 and still be able to try it.
