Pleasant surrounding inside and out. This restaurant is aimed more at young families with young kids running around. Not the place you want to go for a romantic meal! Food average aimed at the young and easy meals. With no young kids I wont be back in a hurry.

This is a no brainer if you have kids. . This is like the spur on steroids. . Secure. Friendly. And of course there is food and drinks.. One complaint would be the bees. Some time overwhelming but I suppose that is nature.

When i wake up on a saturday or sunday morning..i want to go to papachinos :) I love the setting. Its ideal for people with kids, and for those without, it is possible to find seating away from the "noise". the food is amazing. I love the signature sandwiches.

Must have been a bad day at the office / kitchen. The Pizza was delivered cold and as a result the base was tough, the ingredients OK but not flavourful. Normally reliable but not today!

Excellent food, great value for money and the best place to have your kids get rid of their extra energy. The most ideal place for a family meal.
