We love papachinos, usually great food and a nice place for the kids to play. Sadly our last visit wasn't as wonderful as we had come to expect, they were very busy and gave away our table, after waiting 30 minutes to be seated we left.

There are two sections of playhouses for Kids for Bambino's (small kids) and another one on the right of entry for the toddlers. When we first reached there with my... More

One of the few great places to take your child for breakfast, lunch or supper. It gives teh parents a good break while the kids play on the outdoor play gym as well as make their own pizzas. The food is fantastic with my favourite being the lamb and haloumi pita pockets. The servings are very generous. Love this place

Good food, loud and youth oriented atmosphere. Millennials love and frequent this restaurant. Excellent child safety and friendly staff. May be noisy for more conservative diners! Best prepared food of the local Papachinos restaurant in the area. On site, guarded parking.

very child friendly, superb service, excellent location, amazing staff. for parents with 2 year olds who are very busy it is a minefield finding an establishment that looks after the needs of the children, parents and other diners, the children's pizza kitchen is fantastic, truly a first class venue.
