Well folks firstly thanks to everyone on TA for the advise and help over the past few weeks as we planned our trip.
So we arrived and headed to the taxi rank we feel ripped us off but we didn't know so just paid. The taxi from the airport to the Mirage was $28 and only $15 on the way back. Was annoyed when i found out the price on the journey home but it was too late then.
Ok so we arrived at 10pm on a Sat night we were just gobsmacked with the volume of people partying. It was crazy walking through the hotel. We were too tired to even attempt to go out but I have to say I was itching. We went to bed to catch up on some sleep after our 18hr trip.
I am not going to go into the details of our trip as I don't have the time, instead I am going to rate food, expense and things we enjoyed and didn't like.
Food (no particular order)
1) BLT burger in the mirage- As we were tired and the waiting time was long we ordered a take away. 2 burgers and 1 skinny fries $33( Wow we were shocked. Got back to the room and opened it, what a burger !!! It was cooked to perfection and have to say tasted so good. We were shocked at the price but it was worth it in the end.
2)Kokomo's in the mirage -Went here for our wedding night dinner as it was part of a package with beatles show. Starter of asparagus flan was terrible and wasn't even eaten. They did offer to change it but we said it was ok. I ordered a steak for my main and had to send it back as it was raw. Desserts were lovely. Not a good experience overall.
3)Maggiano's fashion show mall- Price was very good food was excellent. Portion sizes were out of this world, we couldn't finish either main course. Nice place great value.
4)Stripburger fashion show mall- Had a voucher from restaurant.com so decided to try it. Have to say after all the reviews we were expecting a lot more. Burgers didn't come near BLT. the price was better but the food wasn't.- just my opinion!!
5)Cravings buffet at the mirage- Hadn't been to a buffet dinner before and was amazed with the quality of the food. Well looked after and maintained. Loved it !! and went back.
6) Brio town square- Awesome value, great food great service. One of the best meals we had in vegas.
Went a few more places but aren't stuck in my head so obviously weren't good or bad.
More to follow !!
