“Perfect with young kids”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We LOVED Café Rain Forest and ate there daily during our trip to La Fortuna. The kids had a lot of foods they enjoyed there, and they make excellent iced lattes! DO NOT miss their desserts, they are fantastic!

“Great for coffee”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had a great breakfast here! The service was prompt and food was delicious. Make sure to ask for "Costa Rican" coffee. It was great!

“Rain Forest Cafe in La Fortuna”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

After spending lots of money eating at different restuartants (that weren't good) we finally found Rain Forest Cafe. Once we discovered the Rain Forest Cafe we went back for breakfest and dinner every night. Rain Forest Cafe is amazing and cheap compared to all the other restaurants we ate at. Especially if you compare the prices to Tabacon Resort which we were staying at. Their coffee is excellent. I always had the Cafe con Leche or Latte. They are excellent for breakfest, lunch and dinner. We came across them when one of the tour companies took us for lunch. We never spent more than approx $7 USD per person. The service is great and so is the food. We usually got "Casados" which is pretty much rice, beans, salad, and some kind of meat. I always got a pinapple juice in water. It is an amazing natural fruit juice. I highly recommend eating at the Rain Forest Cafe!!! Oh and they offer FREE WIFI.
