Kid friendly restaurants with play areas

More and more restaurants are opting to include a play area so that parents can relax while their kids play and eat. Jungle gyms, sand pits, climbing walls and ample space to play allow parents the opportunity to spend more time savouring their food without worrying about the kids being bored. Most of these restaurants offer supervised playing by awesome childminders so you don’t have to run around after your kids.

Farm style restaurants

These are particularly popular with little kids and toddlers. They’ll be delighted to be given a chance to touch and feed the rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks and more. Having loads of safe space to run around and let off energy while parents and friends enjoy a meal means everyone’s happy! Garden centres with restaurants and coffee shops are lovely to spend an entire day in. Enjoy a day out in farm settings right here in Jozi…

Restaurants with kid’s activities

You’ll find many restaurants with activities for kids to engage in such as sand art, go-karting, jumping castles and pottery. There are restaurants in picturesque locations overlooking rivers, on plots of unspoiled land and others in the city too. Indoor restaurants are great for rainy or cold days where kids are still free to roam around. Delicious food and menus to choose from.

Health conscious restaurants

Organic? High protein? Low carbs? Banting? Whatever your lifestyle choice, Jozi has a restaurant for you, where you can enjoy something different, prepared by the experts. Why not include the kids? Fries , burgers and pizzas are a sure treat, but health freaks feed their kids what they feed themselves, and can now make an outing of it.
