The best child-friendly restaurants in Brisbane

Happy kids = happy life.

Instead of facing a nightmare clean-up job in the kitchen (and the dining room, the lounge room and all over the kids themselves), take the whole family out to a spot where the kids menu involves more than just fish and chips, there’s entertainment that doesn’t involve throwing food, and you won’t have to settle for a dodgy chicken parmy.

ONE FISH TWO FISH | KANGAROO POINT

Whether you have one kid, two kids or a whole school of fish, this Kangaroo Point seafood hotspot has something for everyone. The Small Fish menu at One Fish Two Fish offers three tasty options for your fussy eater, including the I Don’t Know of crumbed fish fingers, salad and fries, the I’m Not Hungry of crumbed calamari, salad and fries, and the I Don’t Want That of mini pork sausages with salad and fries. The new-school fish and chip joint has some fancy pants options for you to dine on while the little ones get their Seuss on.

JULIUS PIZZERIA | SOUTH BRISBANE

Back in our day, it was buttered spaghetti or bust when it came to kids menus. Nowadays, modern Italian joints like Julius are offering mini versions of their classics, like duck or beef ragu with pasta, as well as perfectly cheesy pizzas and even a kids panna cotta to finish. But yes, you can still order your buttered spag! 

RIVERBAR AND KITCHEN | BRISBANE CBD

While you sip on a cold one and watch the world go by at this riverside spot, your little ones can trawl through a kids menu featuring linguine Napoli, fish and chips, beef burger and chips, and more. Warning: they won’t leave you alone until you order their dessert of vanilla bean ice cream…

VICTORIA PARK BISTRO ǀ HERSTON

Next time your tyke starts a tanty, instead of going tut-tut, why not go putt putt? That’s right, Victoria Park Bistro is the perfect place to gain respite by indulging in their crunchy wood-fired pizzas, bbq glazed chicken wings, or tiramisu waffles while your child plays miniature golf, scales the playground, or indulges themselves in kiddie breakfasts and lunches that are so good, they won’t be asking for any of yours!

NEESH BAR | WOOLLOONGABBA 

If you and your family are keen on burgers and wood-fired pizzas, then Neesh Bar is the one for you! The backyard is the perfect place to unwind with good food, and the kids are sure to find something they’ll love at this wholesome spot. Plus, we hear their breakfast is next level. 

TODD AND PUP | MOOROOKA 

At this suburban spot, adults can enjoy yummies like white chocolate chai pancakes or a beef and gorgonzola burger, while kids can get their hands dirty with a crumbed chicken burger, cheeseburger or buttermilk pancake with strawberries (for health, obvs). 

COLLE ROSSO ǀ RED HILL

This hidden gem serves up appetisingly authentic Italian fare and is a totally family-friendly environment too! As well as the usual kids menu (hello spag bol), they also cater to eaters out there who prefer their pizza bases gluten-free or pasta dairy-free. And, if worse comes to worst and your cherub refuses to get dressed to leave the house, they do take-away as well! Why hello Netflix’s kids’ section and pizza on the couch.

 

Turn off Bluey and get out the car seat. It’s dinner time.
