Jaleo … much better than paleo

When I visited: July 2014

Location: Las Vegas, in the Cosmopolitan hotel

Team: Jose Andres (Chef Patron), Luis Montesinos (Head Chef), David Oseas (General Manager), John Peiser (Head Sommelier)

Rating in the Michelin Guide: Not rated

Dining Owl Hoot rating: 3/5

What to wear: Men – jeans or nice trousers and a shirt; women – jeans and a smart top or a smart dress

Ambience: Fun, smart / casual

Course of the meal: Iberico ham

If I could change one thing: More vegetarian options


This restaurant is a great place to go in Vegas if you want somewhere fun to chat with friends, where you can share a multitude of delicious Spanish dishes. The waiting staff are friendly and will recommend how many things to order for your group, and they cater well for vegetarians too. Particular highlights are the patatas bravas and the Espinacas a la catalana (sautéed spinach, pine nuts, raisins and apples). Head chef Jose Andres is also behind the wonderful Bazaar (review here).
