Mrs Miyagi Asian Restaurant

Mrs Miyagis Restaurant Playa de las Americas

Mrs. Miyagi’s Asian Kitchen in Playa de las Americas is a must-try for anyone visiting the area that fancies some Asian food.

Not only is the food delicious, but the atmosphere and service are fantastic too.

People queue most nights between 7 and 9 so I would recommend you pre book your table. This is a testament to the restaurant’s popularity.

This can be done via Facebook or the adventure app.

What truly sets Mrs. Miyagi’s apart is the exceptional value it offers.

We spent a very reasonable €60 for a meal for a family of four(2 Adults, a 6 year old and a 3 year old), which even included a bottle of wine.

The food itself is delicious, while the service is praised for being friendly and attentive, just like at other Venture Group restaurants.

Vegas Grill Steakhouse Restaurant

Vegas Grill Restaurant Playa de las Americas

When we were on holiday in 2023 with the in-laws, they had a meal in the Vegas Grill and absolutely loved it.

They stumbled upon this gem while searching for a steak restaurant, and let me tell you, it sounds like they hit the jackpot.

While they noticed that reservations are recommended for larger groups (more than 2-3 people), they managed to snag a table without one.

There might have been a bit of a wait, but they assured me it was absolutely worth it.

Apparently, the food was “unbelievable” and the service was top-notch, justifying every penny spent.

Think of Vegas Grill as a special occasion kind of place.

It might be a bit pricier than their usual haunts, but for a truly memorable meal, it sounds like the perfect treat.

They mentioned the restaurant is located opposite The Family Garden, and the coolest part?

Fancy stairs with Vegas-themed lights set the scene for a fun and vibrant experience.

Just a heads-up though, if you are traveling with young children, they recommend bringing an iPad or other entertainment incase there is a bit of a wait.
