Restaurants Where Kids Eat Free!

Going to a restaurant with kids can sometimes be an expensive gamble. Will the $15 kid’s meals go uneaten? Will they drop the whole plate on the floor? Will there be a [insert a once favourite food item here] that they suddenly no longer like? Well, we have scoured the Inner West for some family-friendly venues that not only offer great food, but where kids can eat free. As an added bonus, some of these venues even have a play space, that may avert a meltdown!

So, give yourself a night off the cooking and treat the family to an early dinner out with one of these tasty suggestions.

Offers listed apply to kids under 12.
