The Café Lemur's food is really good, and the staff are really helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The portion sizes are great too!.

Lovely to see such a well supported zoo. Great to read all about the conservation projects, so you know the entry fee supports such worthwhile things. 
Christine, Camborne
The animals are well looked after and the enclosures are large and interesting for them. Such a variety of animals and birds and they all seem happy. The café and the toilets were of a good standard too.
