The Fountains of Bellagio are among the most iconic attractions in Las Vegas and are instantly recognizable worldwide. A free attraction, many of Las Vegas’ 40+ million annual visitors prioritize stopping by the fountains during their stay. Dancing to a selection of over 20 songs, no performance is identical to the last. Understandably, many also seek to have a meal at one of the numerous restaurants with a view of the Bellagio Fountains.
Below, we dive into both restaurants at Bellagio, and other resorts, that have a fountain view. It may be obvious, but we recommend being proactive with reservations to ensure the best view. Not all seating options are created equal when it comes to seeing the show.
Bellagio Restaurants With a Fountain View
Bellagio expertly leverages its fountains by offering a number of restaurants with stunning views of the water show. Restaurants that provide a fountain view at Bellagio offer a wide assortment of cuisine with various influences that include Japanese, Chinese, French/Spanish, and traditional American fare. Price points at Bellagio restaurants with a view of the fountains may shock budget-conscious travelers so we recommend checking the menu (which will be linked) before visiting.
Prime Steakhouse: Situated on Bellagio’s man-made lake with patio views of the fountains, Prime is a high-end steakhouse that serves a collection of steak and seafood.

Other Restaurants With a View of the Bellagio Fountains
Eiffel Tower Restaurant: Offering stunning views of the Bellagio Fountains across the street, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant is perched halfway up the replica Eiffel at Paris. Seats next to the windows and offer the best view tend to be in high demand. Be proactive with reservations, or book a reservation for a non-peak time. Entrees at the Eiffel Tower restaurant range from $35 – $80 on average.
Hexx: Also found at Paris, across the street from Bellagio, seats on the front patio at Hexx offer guests views of the fountains across the street. While there are some trees that obstruct the view slightly, the fountain show will still offer a nice backdrop to your lunch or dinner. Hexx is slightly cheaper than the other restaurants on this list with the typical entree costing between $20 for a burger and just over $50 for the 16 oz Grilled Rib Eye.
Mon Ami Gabi: Situated directly next to Hexx at Paris, Mon Ami Gabi’s front patio also offers views of the Bellagio fountains across the street. the average entree at Mon Ami will set you back about $30, and there is a burger and fries offered for under $20. Patio seating with a fountain view is first come first served, so we recommend checking it out at non-peak times to limit your wait.
Beer Park: Perched atop the front of Paris’ rooftop, Beer Park offers one of my favorite views of the Fountains of Bellagio at a low price point if eating. Get a seat on the rail overlooking the Strip (which also allows for great people-watching) and order up a burger or sandwich for under $15. To our knowledge, Beer Park is easily the cheapest restaurant with a view of the Bellagio Fountains.
Giada: Located on the second floor of Cromwell, Giada’s window seats offer a great view of the Bellagio Fountains. You’ll want to reserve them in advance, and note that a table with a view comes with a $25 upcharge. Pasta entrees at Giada cost about $30, while meats range from $39 for chicken to $84 for a 28 oz. Bone-in Tuscan Rib Eye.
Scarpetta: An Italian restaurant which can be found at Cosmopolitan has views of the Bellagio Fountains next door, Scarpetta boasts Spaghetti, Creamy Polenta, Veal Chop, and Salted Caramel Budino as their signature dishes. Scarpetta’s average entree runs between $30 – $60.
Hopefully, we were able to help you identify a suitable restaurant with a view of the Bellagio Fountains! While most carry a hefty price tag, there are a few budget options. Again, we suggest calling in advance for reservations to ensure you get the view you desire.
