Somewhere beyond the sea you’ll find the exotic flavors of fish, olive oil and garlic simmered together to form the staples of Mediterranean cuisine. This is the healthy approach to dining out and features a touch of influences from around this exotic region, whether Greece or Italy or Morocco or Turkey. Dining at one of these top five Mediterranean restaurants in Las Vegas means you’ll leave satisfied.

1 Costa di Mare

Fresh fish flown in daily from the Mediterranean mark the cornerstone of Costa di Mare at Wynn Las Vegas. With a view of the lake and romantic indoor and outdoor seating, you’ll have a memorable meal whether selecting a whole fish for the table or house-made pastas and other Italian specialty dishes.

2 Todd English’s Olives

Celebrity chef Todd English brought a version of his Boston favorite to the Bellagio to serve up Mediterranean fare. House-made pastas, steaks, rotisserie dishes, brick oven pizzas and sommelier-recommended wines complement the dining atmosphere that overlooks Lake Bellagio. Whether you choose the lively dining room with its mosaic-tiled floor and soft muted tones of yellow, orange and green or the noisy bar, you can find something that will put you in a seaside state of mind.

4 Picasso

Surely you can consider a blend of Spanish and French cuisines Mediterranean? That’s just what Executive Chef Julian Serrano does at Picasso, his AAA Five Diamond Award restaurant at Bellagio. Pablo Picasso takes center stage, influencing the menu and the decor with his original artwork dotting the walls. If the site of Picassos isn’t enough, how about the view of Lake Bellagio? A compendium of 1,500 wines make the list, mainly from European vineyards.
