Rainforest cafe

Florida Guide > Dining

There are two of these wonderfully themed restaurants in the Orlando area, the first is at the Marketplace in Downtown Disney and the second is just outside the entrance to Animal Kingdom.

Both restaurants offer diners the chance to experience all the thrills on dining in a jungle with the sights and sounds of the animals as well as a simulated rainstorm. Larger than life Banyon trees, cascading waterfalls, tropical music, amazing rock formations and changing constellations all add to the ambience of this amazing eatery. During the rainstorms you will hear the trumpeting elephants and playful primates joining in with the sounds of the diners!

Very often just outside the restaurant there will be handlers with exotic birds and they love to chat with guests about these beautiful creatures.

They have a wide menu that is sure to appeal to all ages, appetizers include Safari shrimp skewers, Lava Nachos and Leaping Lizard lettuce wraps plus our family’s favourite the Rainforest Pita Quesadillas. The Awesome Appetizer Adventure is ideal for two or more to share and features a selection from Caribe Chicken tenders, Coastal Calamari, Big Blue Crab delight and Chimi Cha Cha! !

They also feature a good selection of soups and salads including a fabulous Seaside Clam Chowder while the entrees range from Flying Dragon Pizza, and Rainforest Burgers to Carribean Coconut Shrimp, Jungle Steak and Shrimp and the delicious Maine Stuffed Lobster and Macadamia Crusted Snapper. Vegetarian diners are not forgotten and can choose from things like the Hong Kong Stir Fry, Rainforest Natural Burger, Plant Sandwich and Paradise Pot Roast.

Children are well catered for with their own dedicated menu which includes all the usual kiddy favourites but all presented with typical Rainforest Café flair.

There is a great bar where you can enjoy a cocktail whilst perched on an animal sculpted stool, I’d love to bring some of these stools home!

If you do have a wait for your table there is a large shop at the front of the restaurant which stocks some great items, including an exclusive line of clothing featuring the eight ‘Wild Bunch’ animal characters and a variety of rain forest theme items such as home accessories, jewellery, bath products, books, games, puppets, and toys.

We usually end up spending more in the shop than on dinner and we never seem to manage a visit without coming away with at least one or two furry friends to add to our childrens ever growing collections.
