Expert review of Serendipity 3

Huge portions, knock-out cocktails and ice cream specials directly on the Strip.

Sitting pretty on the Strip outside Caesars Palace, Serendipity is one of the most fun places to eat in Vegas, from the fabulous pink decor to the huge menus (seriously - they're about two feet high). It's best known as an ice-cream parlour but don't discount the food - not only does it do great hangover food (giant omelettes, burgers and hot dogs) but its main courses (salads etc) are surprisingly sophisticated  too. It's very girly, but it's a top spot not only for me, but Vegas resident Holly Madison and recent visitor Gordon Ramsay, too.

Food and drink: 

A word of warning, first: portions are ginormous. The ice-cream sundaes will easily serve two or three people and the mains are also huge. They're great, though - the menu's pretty varied, from junk food, hangover food to posh salads. There really is something for everyone, and it's all great. 

Recommended dishes: 

The giant sundaes will satisfy any sweet tooth, but I actually prefer the Frrrozen hot chocolate - basically a big chocolate flavoured slush puppy (get it laced with booze, and it's even better). Foodwise, the 14-inch hot dogs are extremely popular, but I love the seared tuna salad - I expected it to be a bit junk food-y, but it's up there with my favourite dishes in Vegas.

Ambience: 

Noisy but fun - lots of groups of girls, and plenty of families. Everyone's on a sugar high, too. The food works wonders on hangovers, as well (trust me on that one).

Service: 

The (mainly) ladies are as friendly as their pink t-shirts suggest. It's informal, and it can take a while sometimes, but it's so fun that you don't mind.

Location: 

Outside Caesars Palace, stuffed between the gardens and the Strip. It's the perfect location, and the outside terrace has fantastic Strip views, too.

Price advice: 

Frrrozen hot chocolates start at US$9.75 (more for alcoholic ones). Mains start at around US$14 and sundaes from US$9.75.

Tables to book: 

If you can bear the heat, get a table on the terrace outside for great views.
