Crown Colony Restaurant overlooks the Serengeti with the giraffes and zebras, so you have a great view while dining!! Our favorite meal is the family style chicken and fish. This restaurant is more expensive than the other eateries in Busch Gardens, but it is nice to sit and be waited on and rest up from the commotion in the park.... More

It was nice too have a fresh sandwich with salad. The boys had chocolate cake and the grown ups a nice cool beer. A pleasant stop on a hot day.

This is a wonderful place to relax after you've been on your feet all day at Busch Gardens. The view is the best part of the restaurant. Interesting artwork, as well. The food is adequate, but that's about all. Service is a bit slow. But I still would recommend it to others. It's definitely worth waiting to get a table... More

Ate here while visiting Busch Gardens on vacation. Good food choices for picky children. You can split the pizza/chicken combo easily between two kids. Great view of the animals out in the park.
