The Original Rainforest Cafe

  • About
    Rainforest Cafe, London’s largest family restaurant, is a tropical hideaway in the heart of the West End. The spectacular restaurant recreates the sights and sounds of the rainforest with the help of stunning special effects such as thunder and lightening storms, tropical rain showers and cascading waterfalls. Rainforest Cafe is also home to a cast of astounding, lifelike, animated inhabitants including chattering gorillas, a menacing tree-bound jaguar, trumpeting elephants, a life-like crocodile and fluttering butterflies. Rainforest Cafe is committed to supporting worthwhile environmental causes.

    To date, the Rainforest Cafe has raised in excess of £20,000 for the World Land Trust, through the wishing pond and donations generated from the ‘Cool Rover Bream’ dish, which will be used to purchase forested land in Ecuador. This land will extend the Tapichalaca Reserve, located in the south-east of the country. The specific site has been identified, and negotiations are underway to purchase the land. The land that Rainforest Cafe will purchase is so far 7 times and will soon be 9 times the size of Hyde Park!
