When it comes to cafés in Las Vegas, this one is wild! The jungle theme is perfect for this family themed restaurant. Kids will love the large animatronic animals that move and make noises as you eat right in the heart of the rainforest. Rain and thunder light up the sky as you enjoy your meal. As you enter, you must pass through the 10,000 gallon aquarium. Trees and other plant life make it almost impossible to find any signs of walls as you are surrounded by the jungle of the Amazon with wild animals almost everywhere you look. Monkeys, elephants, snakes, and other creatures will surprise you if you aren’t careful. Every 15 minutes a thunderstorm erupts and the animals come to life with excitement as rain and lightning fill the sky for a short period before the jungle returns to its peaceful nature. Unlike many themed restaurants the food is anything but ordinary. New American cuisine is served with a tropical twist.
Start with an appetizer like the Leaping Lizard Lettuce Wraps. Kids love this appetizer as they are allowed to play with their food by filling pieces of lettuce with chicken veggies, sauces, and cheese to make their own lettuce wraps. Other kid-friendly menu items include salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, wings, soup, and burgers. Adults will enjoy entrees like Steak, ribs, fried chicken, pot roast, Jambalaya, lobster, king crab, and several other seafood options. What family restaurant would be complete without a large dessert menu? Some highlights include the banana cheesecake, bread pudding, and traditional root beer floats. Order the chocolate volcano dessert and your server will make sure that everyone knows it by yelling out, “VOLCANO!” The restaurant also has a large gift shop with plenty of fun and educational toys for the kids. Take home several items straight from the rainforest like scented soaps, candies, and other trinkets. You can also order apparel with animals and other fun prints to remind you of your trip to Las Vegas or your trip to the Amazon, whichever way you want to see it.
