Discover Why Wally's Desert Turtle Is The Premiere Fine Dining Restaurant In The Desert

The most highly awarded restaurant in the desert is the proud recipient of the prestigious Mobil Travel Four Star Award, AAA Four Diamond Award and the DiRoNA Awards.

This magnificent restaurant was built by Wally Botello, the founder of the famed Velvet Turtle chain, and is now owned and operated by his son Michael.

Entering over twinkling lights, guests are swept away by the spectacular design by famed interior-designers Steven Chase and Randy Patton. The beveled mirrored ceilings, Peruvian artifacts, and hand-painted murals create a warm and elegant ambiance in which to savor the culinary creations of Executive Chef Richard Pelz.
