There we were, sitting on a deck, the rainforest drooping down to greet us, when snap, this friendly grin is laughing and joking through the process of taking our order.

I joined a colleague and client at the Rainforest Cafe for a casual lunch and was delighted by the freshness and quality of the food. The cafe itself has a lovely view of the rainforest and service was very friendly. My dining companions were equally pleased with their meals. Will definitely be back!

Went here for lunch after a long drive and we waited over 40mins for our food. The food was over priced and just edible. It's a shame because it is such a nice location and the waitstaff are friendly.
