Finding suitable places to take the family for dinner can sometimes be difficult. When you have little kids, you often want the option to have an early dinner, with no parking hassles, and a kids menu. When you can throw in a playground and the beach and the option for a glass of wine, then you have found a winner.

The Kiosk
The inside/outside beachy feel of The Kiosk

The Kiosk in City Beach is normally open for breakfast and lunch, but starting on October 20, they are now open for dinner Thursday to Sunday, with a kid-friendly 5pm start (although they are actually open all day, the dinner menu starts at 5pm). Not only is the beautiful beach on your door step (there is a path directly from the cafe to the beach) there is also a playground and grassed area immediately outside the cafe that kids will love. Keep in mind though that the playground (and the beach) are not visible from inside the cafe, so you will need take reinforcements, or schedule in a play either before or after your meal.

The playground is just outside the cafe

Here's a hint: bring a plastic bag to hold all the shoes and another one so the kids can collect shells and other beach treasure.

The kids menu is small but covers most of the bases with a choice of toasted sandwiches ($4.80-$6.80) or fish and chips, chicken and chips, calamari and chips or a mini beef burger and chips (all $11.50).

For grown-ups, the menu offers a range of meals, suitable for the relaxed beachy feel including burgers ($16.50), pasta, a steak ‘sanga’ ($23.50), dinner salads and a grilled polenta and veggie stack ($19.50). You will also find favourites such as crispy skin salmon ($28.50) or a Scotch fillet ($24.50) or even a Beach Feast which serves two or three people and includes calamari, mussels, prawns, fish, chips and salad ($69).

Bruschetta for starters

Importantly, the Kiosk is licenced and you can buy drinks by the glass or bottle and there is a range of yummy looking cakes and pies in the dessert case.

At least half of the seating is outside, under large beach umbrellas or shade sails dotted with fairy lights. None of this will protect you from the setting sun, so bring sunnies or hats, especially as the weather begins heating up, but really - you want to be outside to listen to the waves and if you're lucky, to see the kite surfers as they zip over the waves.

Come prepared and have the kids in shoes they can easily take off and clothes you don't mind getting sandy or wet, because it's inevitable that you will have to head down to the beach after dinner to build a sand castle or dodge the waves.

It's inevitable

To find The Kiosk, which technically is on Challenger Parade, near the intersection of Challenger and West Coast Highway, you will find yourself winding through some carparks and unmarked roads, but you just need to follow the signage to get you to the Kiosk.

The Kiosk is pram and wheelchair friendly, and dogs are welcome outside on the side deck area.
