10 Restaurants with Kids Play Areas in Perth

Published May 1st 2012

If you've got kids who are at that age where sitting at a table in a restaurant for more than the time it takes to eat a plate of nuggets and chips (or throw it on the floor), then you probably haven't been out for dinner (not counting Maccas) for quite a while.
Never fear - you can eat out again in Perth. Even if it is at 5pm.
Here are 10 suggestions of restaurants that have play areas to keep your kids busy while you enjoy a nice meal and some 'grown up' conversation.

Ninniku Jip
This is a great casual spot in East Victoria Park. It's a fusion of Japanese and Korean. The play area has a slide and little house in a special kids room that's behind glass.

Siena's of Leederville
Grab a chicken parma or a tasty plate of pasta. You'll get a nice meal while the kids play. Not entirely sure they love kids here though, as you'll see signs threatening anyone who tampers with the floor of the play area. Another play room behind glass - but where's the slide?

High Wycombe Tavern
Might be a bit of a drive if you're nowhere near Kalamunda, but on Sundays this is a good spot for families. They have a 'family fun day' between noon and 4pm with free face painting and a jumping castle.

Little Creatures
Pencil this one in for a sunny Freo day because Little Creatures has a sandpit and toys - but it's outside, so not so good on a rainy day. Enjoy some yummy pub chips and sample some beers while your kids are entertained.

Mash Brewery
If you're keen to hit the Swan Valley with the family, try Mash. They have dedicated kids' room that has lots of toys rather than equipment, plus a Playstation 2 and (bonus!) kids eat free on Friday night when mum or dad buys a main meal.

The Laughin' Barrel
Another good one for kids in the Swan Valley is this place. And you can enjoy beers, wine and wood fired pizzas. Yum.

This family restaurant is in Mindarie and has a cool outdoors playground. Check out their half-price pastas on Wednesday and half-price pizzas on Thursday.

The Sorrento Beach Shack
The play area at this one looks great and it's casual cafe style dining at Hillarys Boat Harbour. They've got toys, books and somewhere to colour in.

Stringy Bark at The Wanneroo
Tuesday night be a good time to check this place out because kids eat free. You can also stay on and check out the quiz night while your kids use the play equipment.

The Naked Fig
Beachside dining in Swanbourne that has a room just for kids. It's got toys and books and the menu is really nice.

Brooklands Tavern in Canning Vale also has a play area for kids. It's indoor too so it's perfect for rainy days.

The Albion in Cottesloe has an enclosed indoor playground with toys and kids eat for free on a Saturday. So you can have a meal and watch the football while the kids run amok in the playground.

The Brook Bar and Bistro in Ellenbrook has a kids corner on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5.30 pm till 8.30 pm and they do drawing, a craft and play games with the kids ... Also on a Sunday morning kids corner starts at 8 am and they have a face painter .... Oh and the best thing is that kids eat free on a Monday night!

Great recommendations - thanks :) just a note though - if you are out hills / Kalamunda way - instead of the High Wycombe Tavern (their bouncy castle is in the car park - not so great for watching / supervising your little ones) check out the new Boab Tavern - they have kids gift bags and an $8 kids menu (meal, drink & icecream) every lunch & dinner + Sunday lunches they have Cater for Kids come in to entertain the littlies with all sorts of fun activities

Walter's River Cafe in Bicton has a playground, so you can sit and enjoy a long breakfast while the kids play outside.
