Russell crows for Little Vegas in the Whitsundays

A LOCAL restaurant has received gladiatorial praise from a Hollywood celebrity.

Little Vegas Burger and Bar hosted actor and South Sydney Rabbitohs owner Russell Crowe on Friday night.

The Cinderella Man took to Twitter after his night out in Airlie Beach to praise the venue and its hospitable staff.

"Loved the experience at the coolest restaurant in Airlie Beach, your barmaid Chey is gold. I taste franchise!!" his tweet read.
 

Restaurant owner Mitch Andrew said Crowe's appearance took the team by surprise but they were happy to accommodate him.

"(He) just rocked up for a feed - lucky we had a table."

Crowe has starred in blockbusters Master and Commander and A Beautiful Mind, among many others.
