Excellent food and service without the hassle of downtown!

This rain forest-themed restaurant in midtown Savannah has some of the best food for a moderate price I have ever had. And not only that - they played soft jazz in the background instead of the blaring noise that's so prevalent in low- to moderate priced restaurants. My local clams in a creamy white wine sauce over pasta was wonderful... More

We went with our family and enjoyed some very tasty food. The specials were very good and so were the regular menu items. Filet Oscar was delicious as was their risotto dishes. Plan on spending about $20 per person without drinks or appetizers.

We had a wonderful evening here amid the colorful decor. The Cafe is aptly named as it reflects the colors of its namesake. The Moroccan Salmon was cooked to perfection, moist and flavorful. Also in this dish was toasted almonds, olives and my favorite, mandarin oranges. The Creme Brulee for dessert was creamy with a crunchy top. Service was excellent... More

Went on TripAdvisor recommendations. Absolutely spot on.. Food was wonderful. Kind of out of the way, but easy enough to find. I had the Seafood Risotto, wife had the Clam Linguini. Both were great. Up there with the best meal we had in Savannah

Tried Toucan Café thanks to Tripadvisor's recommendations. Perfect. Friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere. Easy to find and ample parking. ( no hassles of parking garages and tons of tourist). Delicious meal all around! Fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Would definitely eat here again. Been at this location for 15 years so must be doing something right.
