Bambanani

Take your little bambinos for some kid-friendly dining at Bambanani. Offering play areas for children and delicious food plus drinks to go with that – this might just become a family favourite. Parents can actually relax while kids keep busy with fun activities filled with excitement while keeping boredom at bay.

The Fat Olive

What do kids do when they hear, playgrounds, canoeing, animal farmyard and climbing trees? Well, we imagine they go completely crazy with excitement because that is simply children’s paradise… So go and explore The Fat Olive. While they burn the energy off, you can relax with a glass of sparkles or a cup of soothes.

Papachino’s

What do you or think when Papachino’s is mentioned? Pizza, of course! And how many kids do you know who hate pizza? None! So there, you know where to go. If you’re not convinced, they also have burgers among other kiddies’ goodies on their menu. Plus, a rad play area for the kids to work off the sugar from their delicious milkshakes.

Picolino’s 

For a rustic feel and a wonderful atmosphere for parents and children alike, visit Picolino’s in Fourways. With occasional live events, live sports broadcasts, quiz nights and outdoor thatched lapas, this is the place for the whole family to enjoy. And let’s not forget the kid’s entertainment – there is a large play area filled with climbing walls, sandpits, slides, swings, jungle gyms, and more!

Tres Jolie

For some relaxation and fresh air, take a trip down to Tres Jolie with the family. With beautiful gardens and landscaping, complemented by fountains and water features, this is definitely the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Kids can enjoy the farmyard where they can feed the animals, have a pony ride, play on the jungle gym, dig in the sandpit and go for a swing, all within watching distance of parents.

AJ’s In The Park

When it comes to play areas there isn’t quite a play area like the one at AJ’s In The Park. Not only do the kids have fabulous fun but adults can join in – albeit on a separate playing field. So take off this weekend and enjoy some fun in the park. Did we mention they have amazing pizzas and burgers? Well, they do, so head over there!

Munch Cafe

For scrumptious food and drinks, take yourself and the little ones to Munch Cafe. With a kiddies menu to excite any child, you won’t have to bribe them to finish a plate at this cafe, for sure. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner – it’s perfect for anytime family dining. So what are your waiting for? Go munch away!

Happily Ever Laughter

This boutique restaurant is nestled away in Bedfordview. Happily Ever Laughter is the perfect location for quality food, children’s entertainment and parties. So when you need a restaurant where your kids are entertained while you and your friends can lounge around and enjoy an elegant party, this is the venue for you!
