This was a very unique restaurant, pricey but well worth the price due to the atmosphere and entertainment by the animated animals. Great selection of dishes for varying taste, you should not miss this venue.

The food is good but not amazing and the prices are pretty high. We go because of the fun atmosphere!

This is a great place for good food and the kids will be entertained while sitting still for the entire dinner. It is also a great place for a date, so whether a girlfriend, or the wife and kids, it is a winner.

It's like every other Rainforest cafe. Impressive. Fun for the kids. But the service was just ok, and the food just ok. Definitely not a good value. But the volcano exterior was fun.
