This is a lovely restaurant/bar to visit if you want something different. The view, if you sit outside, is beautiful and has a calming effect on you. If you sit inside be sure that the live entertainment will get your attention. The food are delicious!

Great drinks and food. The beef cho cho has to be tried for sure and give the chicken wings a go also. If you are a spiced rum fan then you will not be disappointed with Trader Vic's own brand. Always good live music

Trader Vic's is the place to go and see people. The drinks are good, but pricy. Get a Rotana card to soften the blow. The food is amazing! I suggest the chateau briand for two. It's usually crowded and smoky so leave the kids with the nanny.
