Trader Vics can always be counted on for a nice dinner. The drinks are delicious. It's a great place to go. Unfortunately the ladies of the night are getting a bit too numerous and the management need to control this to keep the standard high. None the less a great night out is always had.

I have been to the Trader Vic's in Park lane London. It does not have the exotic atmosphere that this one does. It's not cheap, but the food is both varied and outstanding. We dined entirely on starters and mezes. Not a single one was less than perfect. They were in different style, but quality contril here is truly excellent.... More

This restaurant in the Ritz Carlton is beautiful, with a super view. I've been here several times & Liked the dance show, as well as many of the cocktails. However in my opinion the food quality & quantity has gone down. I dont think it offers value for money any more.

We sat at the Mai Thai Lounge, it is really beautiful. Tried some cocktails, the Scorpion is very nice, liked it, and the Puka puka was a bit too sweet and too strong for my taste.

I tried TV once and enjoyed the food, drinks and their cuban show. The only thing that needs improvement is their service.

We visit often Vic's place for its unique atmosphere, good drinks, and nice food. As the night evolves Latin music transfixed the restaurant and one of its corners moves at tune of Salsa.for those with two left feet there's always a good drink awaiting by the bar

When you decide to go for the Trader Vic's restaurant you are really in for a nice experience. The place is very nice and the reception staff is professional. The restaurant is flooded with waiters and supervisors with different jacket colors to differentiate them. The Polinesian decor is exotic but I think it got a little bit old and demode.... More
