As we walked into the Rainforest Cafe the first thing we noticed was how realistic the surroundings were. Lots of huge ferns, vines and animatronics.
We were greeted by a lady dressed in satin who asked us if we had any food allergies. This was very important as one of our parents has a shellfish allergy. We were then taken to our table and whilst en-route the whole restaurant erupted like a huge thunder storm (minus the rain). This was so realistic. We sat down next to two huge lifelike elephants that flapped their ears and moved around, then they belted out a huge trumpeting noise. Amazing! The dining area was surrounded by many animals which would keep any young child amused. Our waiter came over and introduced himself. He was very friendly and helpful. He also mentioned he had been informed of the shellfish allergy. The menu had lots of choice, very much like American diner style food which Jessica and I both enjoyed. They also had a great choice of smoothies. As we waited for our order, we were surrounded by happy families and children who seemed engaged by the atmosphere. The service was really fast considering we visited in half term and it was very busy. Food was really tasty and all staff were so friendly. We would highly recommend this restaurant as it’s a great place to eat and hang out with friends and family.
If it is your birthday, they make you stand up and everyone has to sing Happy Birthday to you. The Rainforest Cafe is a great place for kids of all ages to come and enjoy food as well as enjoying the sights and sounds of the Amazon.
