“Fun with kids, food is ok”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Great entertainment and decent food. You don't go there for a fantastic meal, but for the experience and it meets the expectations. They have great kids' meals and our server Kathy was phenomenal. Salads were good.

“The experience is better than the food!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

We had a great time at the restaurant! The decor was great and the waiter was very entertaining. He did forget to put our order in and we ended up waiting an hour for our food. The dinner food wasn't great. Kids loved this restaurant. I'd go there again but only order appetizers and desserts.

“Reservation pah means nothing here”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

If I were not caught by a $50 charge for cancellation I would have walked - arrived at 7.15pm for 7.30pm reservation - finally sat at 9.00pm, ridiculous - and empty tables - if I hadn't complained we'd still be waiting. If your a party of 2,4 or 6 slightly better, but 5 woooohhh nope as that's 1 cover of a 6 table! Ridiculous

Food - not worth the wait - $28 for half a rack of lack lustre ribs, uninspired pasta gloop called Earth.

What a shame, T Rex instead

“Food is NOT worth the price. Completely overrated”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

We ate here while on vacation at Disney and I must say it was by far the most expensive place that we ate at during our stay. $160 is a bit much for a party of 4. Melinda L. Was our server and she was excellent. We had reservations for that night but others that did not have reservations were being told it was a 3 hour wait. Our reservations were at 6:15 and it was after 8 before we left. Speed up the service and maybe the wait time wouldn't be so long. Definitely won't visit again. We ate at several Disney restaurants and they were not even close to being $160.

“A must place to visit”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

All I can say is you have to visit the rainforest cafe with your kids.
This was one of my childrens favourites and it's very magical inside.
The food was brilliant and the staff really friendly it was well worth the money as it doesn't come cheap.
You must go on a night to see the volcano it's amazing.
