The Best Kid-friendly Restaurants in Singapore

Our guide to the best kid-friendly restaurants in Singapore proves eating out with the little darlings in tow doesn’t have to end in mama and dada taking it in turns to hide in the bathroom.

You know the score. What starts out as an inspired plan to enjoy a Sunday afternoon al-fresco lunch as one happy family, rapidly degenerates into fraught attempts to keep little bums on seats, doomed efforts to explain that pasta isn’t poisonous if it is served in white sauce instead of red, and disagreements about whose turn it is to throw birds around on the iPad. Throw in inexplicably slow service, a hefty bill and disapproving looks from the smug parents whose children are sat peacefully completing their maths homework as your kids roll around under their table, and the whole debacle quickly turns into a dining disaster, best filed under ‘activities to avoid at all costs.’

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be like that in Singapore, and your romantic notions of a Little House on The Priory-style family lunch can, in fact, become reality. It’s all about choosing the right restaurant on which to descend with your brood.

So before you throw in the towel on dining out with your kids once and for all, check out our guide to the best kid-friendly restaurants in Singapore.

Food for Thought at Singapore Botanical Gardens

Food for Thought at Singapore Botanical Gardens is very popular with parents of little monsters of all ages. The restaurant area is extremely spacious, so there’s plenty of room for high chairs, push chairs and excitable toddlers who steadfastly refuse to sit still. There is also a terrific outdoor play area and even a baby changing mat for when the inevitable happens. 

Opening hours: Mon – Sun: 8am to 9pm (Last orders at 8.30pm)

Spruce at Phoenix Park

Spruce at Phoenix Park is a family-friendly spot that offers a great kid’s menu and an outdoor play area that is suitable for older kiddies. The restaurant’s veranda is a top spot for some serious alfresco refueling, but the area is renowned for mosquitos, so make sure you use plenty of repellent to ward off the little critters. If you don’t have any to hand, give a member of staff a shout and they should be able to help out.

Opening hours: Mon – Fri: 10.30am – 10.30pm; Sat, Sun & PH: 9am – 10.30pm

Quentin’s the Eurasian

Quentins eurasian

Quentin’s Eurasian Restaurant in Joo Chiat is a fantastic family restaurant that doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. One little-known fact is that Quentin’s has it’s own indoor play area where kids can go wild while mama and dada kick back and relax. The play area features a small ball pool, art and craft area, cars and a slide… plenty to keep the little ones entertained for a short while at least. What’s on offer for the adults? Good, hearty Eurasian food and hopefully a bit of peace and quiet while the littlies are occupied in the play area.
Opening hours: 11.30am – 2.30pm / 6.30pm – 10.30pm (Tue – Sun); Open till 12 midnight on Fridays; Closed on Mondays.
