Places To Eat With Kids Around Gold Coast Australia

Looking for places to eat with kids around Gold Coast?

Hi Jane here from Eat Out With Kids. Annie asked me to suggest some child friendly cafes or restaurants around the Gold Coast, so I have hand-picked a couple of places I like and wouldn’t hesitate to take my two boisterous boys to.

Places To Eat Out With Kids need to be... child friendly!
Space and food appropriate for children are just some of the things to consider when eating out with young children. Ice cream is always a hit on a kids menu!

Over my time as a parent I have developed my own set of requirements for places to eat with my kids which I think are pretty universally helpful. I have been casting my parents eye over family friendly and not so friendly eating establishments for over 3 years and writing about my findings across Brisbane and south east Queensland.

The cafes, pubs and restaurants I have reviewed are all considered with these parent and family friendly requirements in mind. However... It is not a science – eating out with kids is an ART! Which makes finding good places to eat with kids when you are on holiday... like gold dust!

Here are some of my recommendations, you can comment below, or submit your own suggestions and read other people's suggestions.

One of The Places To Eat Out With Kids in Broadbeach

Koi cnr Surf Pde and Albert St - Broadbeach

I have to admit I didn’t take the kids to Koi, but we saw many people eating there with their kids.

The staff are very welcoming to kids, so although there’s not a lot of space, the staff are on your side.

There’s a good kids menu, and in the corner there are some couch seats, so if you can get those seats, you’ll get a little more space.

Child Friendly Pub In Gold Coast

The Bearded Dragon - 2 Tamborine Mountain Road, Tamborine

Actually this is sort of between the Gold Coast and Brisbane! It is in the Gold Coast hinterland. I really like The Bearded Dragon.

It's a pub with restaurant and garden. Particularly busy but wonderful for lunches over the weekends. There is more than enough space here - a big open lawn, playground, and animals to see.

If you go at the right time, you’ll catch the toad races and reptile show - so no worries if you forget your activity bag!

Check out the video of the lady holding the crocodile during The Bearded Dragon Crocodile and Reptile Show. That could be you, or your child!

And for the non driving adults - all washed down with a cold beer.

We had a great time at The Bearded Dragon on Mt Tamborine - I bet you will too.

Café That Welcomes Kids in Brisbane

The Cliffs Café at Kangaroo Point - 3 River Terrace, Kangaroo Point Parklands

In my home town (Brisbane) I love to go to The Cliffs Café at Kangaroo Point.

Amazing views of the city, space between tables, kids menu, and a park a small walk up the hill make this café a great spot to take kids and visitors to Brisbane.

We go to The Cliff’s Café regularly.
