Weekend Tips – Kid Friendly Dining

To say it’s a challenge finding family-friendly dining places, especially when kids are involved, is an understatement. Keeping little ones not only well fed but also creatively entertained are paramount, but there are other things to consider, too, such as ease of pram access and parking. Often, a fair bit of research is involved before a decision is finally made not only on “Where to eat?”but more importantly, “Where to go?”

Our Top 5 kid-friendly dining spots all share these attributes: (1) Proximity to other family-friendly activities; (2) Availability of high chairs / booster seats; (3) Kid-friendly menu; and (4) Buy 1 get 1 free vouchers on your Entertainer App. Getting out there to enjoy everything HK has to offer need not cost the world.


Bubba Gump – The Peak

The leisurely Peak Circle Walk, trick-eye museum, Madame Tussauds… there’s a reason The Peak is a perennial family favourite, and there’s no better spot for lunch than Bubba Gump. There’s a menu just for kids. Highlights include the shrimp-and-bacon potato bites and the chocolate chip cookie sundae. If you’re lucky, you might even chance upon a special character appearance of the friendly shrimp mascot.

Fish & Chick Plus – Kwun Tong

Let kids run loose along Kwun Tong‘s waterfront promenade, whilst adults can do some architecture spotting and appreciate the reinvented district’s transformation from its industrial past. When it’s time to eat, head over to Fish & Chick Plus, and here’s why. The fish is fantastic, with choices amongst local, fresh-daily catch from right here in HK. And to top it all off, kids eat free on weekends!

Cafe 8 – Central Ferry Pier

There are few places with as expansive an al fresco area as Cafe 8, where you and the little ones can enjoy the sunshine, an unobstructed view of the HK Observation Wheel against Victoria Harbour, and the comings and goings of boats of all shapes and sizes. Colouring pens and paper are available – just ask. Cafe 8 is also a social enterprise, offering employment opportunities to young adults with learning disabilities. If, afterwards you’re still looking for more activities, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum is just one flight of stairs below.

Oolaa – SoHo

The Police Married Quarters, known as “PMQ” since its revival as a hub for local creativity, offers an endless range of activities. From learning how to paint, bake, create accessories, or simply appreciate the overflowing creativity of local designers, there’s plenty to do here. When hunger strikes, just walk next door to spacious Oolaa. High chairs, check. Easy-to-handle, kid-friendly menu items, check. And just for kids – and it’s FREE! – there’s a weekend brunch dessert buffet. Check and check.

Pinot Duck – Stanley

Nothing says “Family Day” quite like a Sunday outing in Stanley. Watch kids have a go at the pirate ship playground in the middle of the square, or walk just down the road to Chung Hom Kok Beach. Head over to Pinot Duck afterwards, where kids can enjoy healthy eats such as green bean soup and vegetable risotto. In addition to buy 1 get 1 free Main Course or Set Lunch, adults can also enjoy enjoy BOGOF drinks offfers such as House Beverage or Bottle of House Wine. Pinot, indeed.
