Founded in 1992 Rainbow offers a delicious selection of international and local food made with fresh ingredients(some of them organic)at really good prices in a great atmosphere. Since the opening of the restaurant, we've been hosting live music every night which started with our now very famous Open Mic Night (Wednesdays at 8pm).Hope to see you around!
