After opening the original Jaleo in Washington, D.C., in 1993, chef José Andrés expanded to the suburbs of the city before turning his attention from Spanish cuisine to other cuisines like Mediterranean and Mexican. Now he has opened Jaleo in Sin City. As Spain's unofficial culinary ambassador, for both traditional cooking and Ferran Adrià’s brand of avant-garde, Andrés keeps the Jaleo menu packed with traditional tapas and paellas, using the finest ingredients and time-honored techniques with measured modern flourishes.



  • bacon wraped dates are the best food I have ever eaten.
  • Great food
  • There is a $4 tapas menu at the bar from 1630-1900
  • Try the bacon wrapped dates.
  • Definitely try their Paella!
  • Amazing food and the sangria was great. I def would get the pitcher. We went there for my birthday and split 3 per person. Loved the potato gratas.
  • "Pay the premium for the purest pigs on the planet: jamon de Ibrico... Its an exquisite piece of meat, eaten with tomato-smushed bread and little else." - November 2012 Issue
  • Flauta de jamn ibrico de bellota was delicious. Overpriced at $18 though.
  • Dear Lord, its sooo good. The place is like an Oyster bar, appetizers only but the food is magnificent! Try duck with apricot - cocktail Albariza. And water with no ice by default! #Europestyle
  • Jaleo hour is a bargain! Only had 2 tapas plates & 1 dessert & came out pleasantly full. The dessert was amazing- caramalised bread,brioche ice cream and chocolate flan, perfect combo of salty&sweet!
  • Great restaurant for tapas & sangria!!!
  • Love this place
  • Excellent dinner, and great service. Will definitely go back.
  • The bacon wraps are not the best as Josh G previously indicated.
  • The "salt air" on Jose's Margarita is interesting... was not for me.
  • Want to take more of a break? Jaleo is an outstanding sit-down restaurant for Spanish food and tapas.
  • Worst service I've ever had. I will not go back
  • Jaleo stands out for such simplicity as garlicky sauted shrimp. - June issue 2012
  • Is there anything bad in this place?? I don't think so! My advice: just go often and try everything!!! :D
  • Garlic shrimp and croquetas de pollo are amazing.
