It’s often difficult to enjoy a meal with children fussing about, especially if you don’t want to just keep them occupied by letting them play with your brand new smartphone or iPad, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat yourself to a day out! Here are top restaurants where you can sit back and enjoy great food while your kids occupy themselves with more than just colouring sheets (that are bound to bore them in no time, anyway).
Quentin’s is a restaurant tucked away at the Eurasian Community House in Ceylon Road that serves none other than (you guessed it) authentic Eurasian food! Each generous portion serves 2-3 people, so make it a family affair. There’s a kids menu that comes with freshly squeezed apple juice and a scoop of ice cream, and even better: a playroom complete with ball pits, electronic cars, a slide, a bookshelf filled with books, and even a breastfeeding corner!
Head down this Mother’s Day for an all-you-can-eat buffet for just $40 nett per adult & $20 nett per child, complete with a cupcake decorating class – an activity that both mummy and child will enjoy for sure.

Imagine this: you’re enjoying a forkful of Florentine steak in one hand and a glass of wine in the other while your children keep themselves occupied with a bouncy castle, a trampoline, a bunch of toys, and a water slide (put up only on the weekends), leaving you to savour every bit of your Italian meal. La Barca Ristorante and Wine Bar goes above and beyond when it comes to providing a family-friendly environment that’ll leave both you and your children coming back for more (don’t say I didn’t warn you)!

The Bank Bar + Bistro isn’t just a swanky restaurant in the CBD where people hang out after office hours, it also transforms into a family-friendly establishment (with amazing BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs) on the weekends. Head over on a Saturday and your kids will enjoy a children’s play area that’s complete with a ball pit, a couple of TVs, building blocks, and a plethora of children’s toys. The kids menu (that doubles up as a colouring sheet) is also well thought out, and includes goodies like Crispy Battered Seabass and Chicken Ham Neapolitan instead of the standard fare of spaghetti and chicken nuggets. A winner for sure!

It’s often difficult to bring kids out to an Indian restaurant since most of them are unable to take the heat, but if you’re having serious Indian food cravings and you’d like to spend the day with them, Zaffron Kitchen is the place to be! Head to their East Coast branch for a specially curated menu for children (sans spice, obviously!), an impressive play area complete with a wooden hut, a TV playing children’s movies, and a variety of different toys that’ll keep them occupied for a good half an hour, at least – leaving you to enjoy your Tandoori Malai Chicken Tikka in tranquility.
