This restaurant is located in the MGM hotel & casino. If you have ever visited a Rainforest Café before you will know the drill. Tables surrounded by trees, animated animals, fountains and giant aquariums. Every so often there is a thunderstorm which aggravates all the "animals" and they start shrieking and moving around. This can be quite amusing if someone near the elephant has no idea it is about to throw its trunk in the air!
The food is usually pretty good and you get plenty of it. I had the Planet Earth pasta which was very tasty and my husband had the chicken Caesar salad, which he too enjoyed. As I mentioned you do get large helpings – especially if you are British and used to British portions. We could not finish our meals and therefore could not sample the desserts, which sounded great.
Although more expensive than many "normal" restaurants, you are paying for the ambiance. The staff always seem friendly and helpful. This restaurant in Vegas is the only one of the chain which opens for breakfast.
