The Best Kid-Friendly Restaurants on the Gold Coast

There is no better feeling than sitting down for a nice meal in a restaurant. No cooking, no cleaning, just a delicious meal cooked for you instead of by you for a change. Unfortunately for us parents, this experience can be a rare occurrence – but it doesn’t have to be! There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants on the Gold Coast that offer a family-friendly dining experience, allowing you to have your cake and ensure the kids are entertained long enough for you to eat it too. 

Here are our favourite kid’s restaurants on the Gold Coast complete with kids menus and play areas.

5 Kid-Friendly Restaurants on the Gold Coast, Australia

Graziers Steakhouse Restaurant

Mermaid Waters

Fancy a decent steak? Head to Graziers Steakhouse Restaurant at Lonestar Tavern for the best cuts of premium Graziers beef around. They, of course, provide a full kids menu as well as an indoor and outdoor kids playground and playroom. 

The Barn


When it comes to a true paddock to plate experience, The Barn takes the cake. Nestled amongst the stunning Springbrook surrounds, this is the perfect dining destination for a day of fun, education, and delicious food. While you wait for your meals in the serene beer garden, your kids will love roaming around, spotting all the farm animals and learning about where their food comes from. 

Dog & Parrot Tavern


The next time you’re travelling through Robina, stop in at Dog & Parrot. This tavern is home to a family-style bistro, serving up share plates, pub classics, and wood-fired pizzas. Treat yourself to a long lunch or dinner as your kids wear themselves out on the covered outdoor playground or entertain themselves in the indoor playroom complete with Playstations.

Club Talle

Palm Beach

For beachy vibes and unbelievable seafood, book a table at Club Talle. Located right on the water, this Tallebudgera Surf Club bistro serves up scrumptious seasonal menus for the adults and classic favourites for children. Just down from the beachfront deck is a covered outdoor playground, letting you take in the gorgeous view of the ocean while keeping one eye on the kids.

Lot Two 

Tweed Heads

For more views, wood-fired pizzas, and fresh-caught seafood, make your way to Seagulls’ Lot Two restaurant. Alongside a seasonal menu of both classics and bold new flavours, you’ll find your standard and delicious kids menu. While there is no kids play area in the restaurant itself, Lot Two has joined forces with the Tabatinga Fun and Social Centre which offers drop and dine childcare on Friday and Saturday nights while you enjoy a night to yourself with great food, wine, and live music.
