I really don't understand all these bad reviews! It's a very typical restaurant and the food is really good! The price is medium and they are very professional. Recommended.

A great hearty meal after a cool walk around the mountain. We read the previous reviews and were prepared for a disaster. But, the meat dishes were superb, one mixed meat skewer, one pork skewer and a steak on a hot stone was plenty for...More

Jungle Rain Restaurant is the only one on the island, which tries to resemble the most hidden jungle on the planet. The restaurant is unique in Europe, as its decoration and theme environment simulate a tropical forest. The “robot” animals, the trees and decorative plants, and the special effects with background music recreate a genuine “forest” that makes your meal a very special and unforgettable experience. There, you can closely observe the behavior and the wild roaring of several animals in their habitats, such as the lion, gorillas, an elephant, the anaconda or a crocodile. Simulated thunderstorm, fog and rain complete the scenery and give it a more realistic touch. We offers you the best in traditional Madeiran and Portuguese cuisine, as well as special dishes of wild meat.
