Whether you choose to simply have a drink in the bar or enjoy dinner, this is an absolutely breathtaking option. The highest structure in the US, west of the Rockies, you will never tire of the view as the restaurant revolves 360 degrees during your dinner. Don't be put off by the location of the Statosphere at the end of the Strip - get a cab - don't walk as it looks deceptively close. The Stratosphere itself is a low budget hotel and you may feel dubious on your way to the restaurant, but don't be put off - the ambience in the restaurant does not reflect the rest of the establishment.

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas. Ate there in May of 2005 and the steaks were absolutely amazing. The service was fab, the restaurant decor and layout really stunning. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to dinner there!

In a city of a amazing food, this restaurant topped the list! Typical Tuscan cuisine but with an incredibly vast menu. It has an excellent atmosphere and friendly staff. So good I even bought the recipe book!

Les Premices is a great, cheap restaurant with an excellent location over looking the Djema el fna square. It has excellent service, food, and cocktails, and is the perfect place to watch the square come alive.

Buffet-style restaurant serving range of traditional Moroccan dishes. High quality, excellent choice, elegant dining room. In the evenings, you pay £10 and get a 3-course buffet meal, with as many repeat tastings as you like. Excellent for those that want to try a range of Moroccan foods.

No visit to Chengdu and Sichuan would be complete without a visit to Shuxiangge. Try some of the very famous local dishes: Mapo Toufu, Lai Dumpling, and Han Steamed Bun.

The well-established Shamrock (Irish) Bar is something of a landmark meeting place for Chengdu expats and locals. Up to 150 people per night roll up for music and fun on a Friday or Saturday evening. There is a free pool table, as well as live international sport (such as Aussie Rules, cricket, rugby, and soccer) televised on several screens throughout the bar area. The beer garden out front provides an excellent alternative for those who wish to generally chat.
Every Day: 10.00am – 3.00am
BAR FOOD SPECIALTY:
Pub grub includes the popular Shamrock burger and chips. Add lettuce, tomato, cheese, egg and / or bacon to your own liking. There is no shortage of ketchup (tomato sauce) to otherwise smother hot potato chips, wedges or onion rings. This can be washed down with a variety of local and imported beverages including Irish draught Guinness beer.

We have a home in Cheshire and in Bala, north Wales but we rarely went out in the local town of Bala to dine. The food we found wasn't up to much, but we found a great little gem that only opend 12 months ago. It's called Awel Yr Aran and is run by a great friendly couple, Wendy and Mike. We go there every time we are over in Bala and the food is always to the highest standard, the menu is seasonal and fresh, and great value for money. They don't advertise, they don't need to - word of mouth is enough, as we always book, we do recommend you book before you visit,

You will need to hop on the back of a motorbike to get there because it can be hard to find, but it is totally worth it. There are many different types of snakes in glass cages all round the seating area and snakes inside the glass-topped tables! The food isn't bad either. The only thing we didn't like was the crocodile on a chain.

The Opernpalais cafe at Unter den Linden offers an experience unequalled anywhere that I know of. The opulent surroundings are only upstaged by the wonderful choice of delicious cakes. You can imagine being here in a long past era, whiling away your leisure hours with good conversation, kaffee und kuchen. Not to be missed.

A restaurant where we ate from the 'Winterzaubermenu' available from October to January. This costs 30 euros for 4 courses - and 3 of them are duck! Duck pancake rolls, duck 'cappucino' soup, leg of duck, and (hooray, no duck) a light mousse with cherries. Basil Fawlty ('the duck's off') has nothing on this! All served beautifully and politely in a warm, cosy environment.

Part bar, part puppet show, this one-man-cabaret of a dining experience is for anyone who likes to eat out in truly surreal fashion.
It's the choicest blend of beer, bar snacks, party games and singing lavatory available in Tokyo, though definitely not recommended for the overly self-conscious.
Home base of the GoWest Club (free membership) - launched by western China's pioneering magazine for culture and nature. Cafe Del Mar's elegant and tasteful decor provides a friendly and affordable place for expats, tourists and local white-collars to interact and better understand Chinese culture through creative, literary, recreational and social activities.
Delightful indoor and outdoor areas with attentive English-speaking staff. Customers are welcome to add to the already international menu (e.g. American, Australian, British, Chinese, French, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish).
