Rainforest Cafe is a standing favorite with children with the animated animals in the rainfores setting bis very cool, however for adults, comes off a little cheesy. Food is average at best and service was not good.

Beautiful food along with fast and friendly service. Everything was to a great standard and I would definitely recommend eating here for lunch at least. Restrooms were also spotless!

The whole family enjoyed this night out. There are plenty of surprizes for the kids, and great food for the connoiseur. A balloon sculpter came to our table and made a complimentary animal for daughter.

We only stopped here for a drink. The drinks were very nice and we got a lovely souvenir glass. There is no bar area at this restaurant so had to drink our drinks in the main restaurant. Great location.

We always use valet parking when we go to this location, it's pricier than paying to park yourself but quite a bit easier when you have little kids (especially if the weather is bad).

Yes - the food is predictably overpriced - be careful when you order. Skip the expensive soft drinks and you'll save a fortune. All of these "theme" restaurants are more expensive than most places, but it isn't prohibitive... More
