Below are some of the best restaurants in Perth to take kids because they have indoor or outdoor play areas or other family-friendly features.

NORTHERN SUBURBS


The Carine Glades Tavern
Cuisine: Pub food
Address: 493 Beach Rd, Duncraig
Website: The Carine Glades Tavern
Details: The Carine has a large, gated outdoor play area for children with slides and climbing, as well as a putting green. It is very welcoming of families with a Kids Club, monthly colouring-in competition (worth $200) and has an extensive kids menu with generous serves.
External review.

“The gates don’t actually go all the way around, and when the kids hit golf balls into the car park they tend to chase them, so for little kids you still need to watch them. It has the biggest kids menu around.” PMG Member.


Whale & Ale Tavern
Cuisine: Pub food
Address: Corner of Ocean Keys Boulevard and Key Largo Dr, Clarkson
Website: The Whale Ale Tavern
Details: The Whale Ale have a gated play area outside with tables for families to sit and watch. They offer a kids menu and you can buy activities bags for $2.

“The Whale & Ale Tavern in Clarkson! It’s also very affordable for a family.” PMG Member

Spur Restaurants
Cuisine: Steak houses
Address: restaurants in Currumbine, Mandurah, Willeton and Wanneroo
Website: Spur Restaurants
Details: Spur are an international chain with huge steaks, over the top themes and are very welcoming to the kids in order to attract families. Restaurants tend to have a separate room or two for children, glass walled so you can see (and hear) with play equipment, games consoles and arcade games.

“Spur in Wanneroo.” PMG Member
“Golden Spur in Mandurah, serves were generous, kids loved the play area and games consoles, but it got extremely loud and crazy in there on a busy Saturday night. Not really safe for little kids under four or five unless you plan on staying with them the entire night. Older kids can be left to their own devices. Go on a quiet weeknight. Mandurah Spur has a bouncy castle as well.” PMG Member.

EASTERN SUBURBS/HILLS


Masonmill Garden
Cuisine: Modern Australian
Address: 40 Masonmill Rd, Carmel
Website: Masonmill Gardens
Details: Located in the hills and surrounded by jarrah forests, it is easy to see why Masonmill is often a wedding destination. They also have a nature play area and a Koi pond, and are pram friendly with a kids menu as well. Open daily for lunch, it is only open for dinner Friday and Saturday.

“Masonmill in Roleystone has an amazing cafe/restaurant, gardens and a mind blowing kids play area (outside) overlooking the valley.” PMG Member


HopsScotch
Cuisine: Café, licenced
Address: 1088 Brookton Hwy, Karagullen
Website: Hopsscotch
Details: Open for breakfast and lunch daily, and dinner on Fri-Sun HopsScotch is located in the Perth Hills and has a new outdoor adventure playground plus plenty of gardens and paths and hidden areas for children to explore.
External review.

“Hopscotch in Karagullen is amazing (outdoor nature.)” PMG Member


Elevated Grounds Coffee House
Cuisine: Cafe
Address: 22 Haynes St, Kalamunda
Website: Elevated Grounds Coffeehouse
Details: Located in the Perth Hills, Elevated Grounds has a small children’s corner with little tables, also dog-friendly.

“Elevated Coffee House Cafe in Kalamunda – has a small area with kids toys.” PMG Member

CENTRAL


Stickybeaks Café
Cuisine: café, open for breakfast and lunch
Address: off Kings Park Rd, West Perth
Website: Stickybeaks Cafe
Details: Located inside the Ivey Watson playground, Stickybeaks offers a range of breakfast, lunches and snacks, with the full breakfast menu being offered at the end of the week. There is plenty of seating, and it all overlooks part of the playground, which is simply enormous and you cannot see it all at once. The separate area for the smallest of children is at some distance from the café. For older kids you can let them run loose, and as long as you sit with an eye on the entrance (which isn’t gated) they can’t escape without you knowing. It can be pricey, but you can easily spend the entire day there (and you bring your own picnic to the playground).
External review.

Outback Jacks
Cuisine: Steakhouse
Address: locations in Cannington, Northbridge, Rockingham
Website: Outback Jacks
Details: Most Outback Jacks restaurants have a separate Kids’ Room with a variety of entertainment including playstations and TV. For the younger kids they have colouring-in, and there is a kids menu with plenty of options and include icecream.

“Outback Jacks Cannington has a room full of kids toys and play area” PMG Member

SOUTHERN SUBURBS


Brooklands Tavern
Cuisine: Pub food
Address: 7 Holmes St, Southern River
Website: Brooklands
Details: The Brooklands Tavern welcomes families with an indoor play area, kids menu and Kids Club with free meals and other activities. Like all pubs it can buys on certain nights, but is a great destination on a weeknight with children.
External review.

“Brooklands Tavern in Southern River is very child friendly, they have an indoor play area that is accessible only from inside the restaurant, and colouring packs for kids!” PMG Member
“Brooklands- Southern River has an indoor playground. Another pub type place but still quite nice.” PMG Member


Canning River Café
Cuisine: Café, breakfast and lunch
Address: Corner of Kent St and Queens Park Rd, Wilson
Website: Canning River Cafe
Details: The café is open for breakfast and lunch and closes before dinner time. While they do not have their own play area, they are closely located to all the attractions of the Weir, so it is more likely that you eat your meal together and leave to walk down to the playground. Only older children could go to the play area by themselves.
External review.

“Canning River Cafe at Kent St Weir is surrounded by bush, walking tracks, huge oval, and play area and access to the Clontarf Train.” PMG Member
“Canning River Cafe (but book early as it can get busy on weekends) - playground, river, grass area and heaps of riding/walking paths.” PMG Member


Walter’s River Café
Cuisine: café, breakfast and lunch
Address: Point Walter Reserve, off Honour Drv, Bicton
Website: Walters River Cafe
Details: Although the adjoining playground doesn’t strictly belong to the café, if you sit on one side of the semi-al fresco restaurant, you can see straight out to the sandpit and playground next door. It is a fair walk to the river, so safe enough for children, but close enough that you could easily go for a walk or scoot after lunch/breakfast. They have a kids menu.
External review.


Ramons at Willow Pond
Cuisine: Modern Australian
Address: 459 Nicholson Rd, Canningvale
Website: Willowpond
Details: Like a diamond in the rough, the stunning grounds of Ramon’s seem unlikely in the surrounding industrial areas, but with a large Japanese garden, beautiful koi pond, waterfall and large grassed areas for children to explore it is a favourite of casual diners and brides. You can buy fish food to feed the decorative koi and kids eat free every Monday to Thursday.
External review.

Little Creatures Brewery
Cuisine: Pub Food
Address: 40 Mews Rd, Fremantle
Website: Little Creatures
Details: Although Little Creatures is very welcoming of kids, it needs to be remembered that it is a pub. A dedicated kids menu, awesome view and large sandpit out the back makes it a popular (and busy) summer destination.
External review.

“Little Creatures Brewery Fremantle have a sandpit out the back which is always popular.” PMG Member


The Left Bank
Cuisine: Pub food
Address: 15 Riverside Rd, East Fremantle
Website: Left Bank
Details: While located across from the water with beautiful views, the Left Bank doesn’t have its own playground but it does cater to families. Given its true nature as a pub, it’s best to go early and take advantage of the Kids Club on Tuesdays.

“Left Bank has kids club on Tuesday night, kids eat free and a room for the kids to go into and play/craft with staff to hang with them.” PMG Member


Clancy’s Fish Pub, Fremantle
Cuisine: Seafood, pub food
Address: 51 Cantonment St, Fremantle
Website: Clancys Fish Pub
Details: Clancy’s overlooks an enormous open lawn area, although it doesn’t have any play equipment if you brought a ball or cricket set, it would suit older kids. Clancy’s has a small kids menu and you need to remember that it is a pub, so stick to family-friendly times.
External review.

“Clancy's in Freo has the great lawn area to run around. If you get an outdoor table you can sit and watch the kids run around. Not suited for younger kids.” PMG Member

Outback Jacks
Cuisine: Steakhouse
Address: locations in Cannington, Northbridge, Rockingham
Website: Outback Jacks
Details: Most Outback Jacks restaurants have a separate Kids’ Room with a variety of entertainment including playstations and TV. For the younger kids they have colouring-in, and there is a kids menu with plenty of options and include icecream.

“Outback Jacks Cannington has a room full of kids toys and play area” PMG Member

Spur Restaurants
Cuisine: Steak houses
Address: restaurants in Currumbine, Mandurah, Willeton and Wanneroo
Website: Spur Restaurants
Details: Spur are an international chain with huge steaks, over the top Indian theming and are very welcoming to the kids in order to attract families. Restaurants tend to have a separate room or two for children, glass walled so you can see (and hear) with play equipment, games consoles and arcade games.

“Serves were generous, kids loved the play area and games consoles, but it got extremely loud and crazy in there on a busy Saturday night. Not really safe for little kids under four or five unless you plan on staying with them the entire night. Older kids can be left to their own devices. Go on a quiet weeknight. Mandurah Spur has a bouncy castle as well.” PMG Member.

WESTERN SUBURBS

Siena’s
Cuisine: Italian
Address: 115 Oxford St, Leederville
Website: Sienas
Details: One of the first Perth restaurants to build a dedicated kids play area inside, Siena’s still enjoys a place at the top of the family-friendly lists, but it is best suited for slightly older children (aged4 ) who do not need constant supervision. It can be crowded and not great for prams.
External review.

“Sienas in Leederville is an Italian restaurant with indoor play area.” PMG Member
“The kids love the play area, but I don’t think it has been refurbished in a very long time and can be a bit unsafe during busy times for little kids.” PMG Member
“Siennas Leederville has an indoor play area but last time we were there the TV was on in the area.” PMG Member


Herdsman Tavern
Cuisine: Pub Food
Address: 33 Herdsman Pde, Wembley
Website: Herdsman Tavern
Details: The Herdsman Tavern is a popular destination for families with a large indoor play area for children, and a regular Kids Eat Free offer every Sunday. It can get busy, but is perfect for an early meal with the family.

“Herdsman Lake Tavern on Herdsman Parade has pub food, a kids club and they eat free Sunday. It has an indoor play area and quite decent playground.” PMG Member


Cambridge International Food Court
Cuisine: food hall, top quality
Address: 350 Cambridge St, Wembley
Website: Cambridge International Forum
Details: This popular food court has around a dozen different cuisines from Japanese to Thai, French and Dim Sum. You can BYO wine and large group can book tables in advance. There is a small, gated play area for children.
External review.

“The Cambridge International Food Court Wembley - food court with many food stands, BYO and indoor play area. Downside - bit noisy and playground can be a bit boisterous.” PMG Member
“Only one shop sells chips but otherwise the range is terrific, and it is a very popular place for families and local groups to meet. Not relaxing when the kids are running around, but hard to fault otherwise.” PMG Member.

Feast Café
Cuisine: Café – breakfast and lunch
Address: 363A Cambridge St, Wembley
Website: Feast Cafe
Details: Feast not only does great food, but has an enclosed – and soundproofed – room where children can play, making it perfect for breakfast, morning tea or lunch. Unfortunately the balls were taken away due to safety concerns, so the remaining toys are pretty un-awesome in comparison, but it fine for babies and toddlers. It has a good kids menu and nice food for adults.
External Review.


Daverro
Cuisine: Italian
Address: Floreat Forum Shopping Centre, 1 Howtree PI, Floreat
Website: Davvero

Details: Although Daverro don’t strictly have their own play area for kids, it is next door to a shaded, outdoor playground in the courtyard of the Floreat Forum, and if you ask to be seated outside, you can easily watch over your children as they play.
“Daverro has a children’s menu that covers simple and more sophisticated tastes. They’re quite pricey for dinner but are lovely for breakfast or coffee and cake outside while watching the kids playing.” PMG Member

SWAN VALLEY


Core Cider House
Cuisine: Modern Australian
Address: 35 Merrivale Rd, Pickering Brook Rd
Website: http://www.corecider.com.au/
Details: Like a big day out for any family, with enormous grounds, bocce, an outside playground, tug of war, cars and cart and more. Dedicated kids menu.
External review.

” The grounds really are like taking a mini getaway with so much open space and stunning views.” PMG Member


Elmars in the Valley
Cuisine: German, beer hall
Address: 8371 West Swan Rd, Henley Brook
Website: Elmars
Details: A popular destination in the Swan Valley, Elmars is a large German restaurant and craft brewery with a large grassed area for children, making it a good option in nice weather. You need to remember to bring your own balls, games and Frisbee as nothing is provided, and it is better for slightly older children who can be left semi-supervised.

“Elmars in the Swan Valley. They have awesome kids meals and a huge grassed area out the back where kids can roam free.” PMG Member


The New Oakover Co-op
Cuisine: Modern Australian, lunch and breakfast
Address: 14 Yuckich Close, Middle Swan
Website: Oakover
Details: Oakover is located on the edge of a dam, as many Swan Valley restaurants are, so you need to keep an eye on your children, but on the other side of the building is a large grassed area, with a few large trees and lovely lumpy bits for kids to run around on. There are buckets of bats and balls and paddle boats for guests to use on the dam at certain times of year.
External review.

DOWN SOUTH


Cheeky Monkey Brewery
Cuisine: Pub food
Address: 4359 Caves Rd, Margaret River
Website: Cheeky Monkey
Details: With a restaurant the size of a paddock and a large semi-shaded (and gated) play area, Cheeky Monkey is a very popular destination for families visiting the Margaret River region. The play area is located quite some distance from the restaurant and there are only so many tables that have a direct view, so if you have very little children they need to be supervised (there is also a dam). Very generous servings. Arrive early.
