Awesome family restaurant

It's great when my husband and I can enjoy abreakfast out and have our daughter with us, she happily plays in the safe play area. Service is a little off some days great on others, food is on point, so whether breakfast or lunch or even just a girls drinks afternoon, always a fun time to be had

A nice lively family restaurant with excellent children's play facilities. Relaxing atmosphere allowing parents adult time together enjoying a drink and good food whilst children play in a safe environment. Worthwhile.

What a great family outing, be it breakfast lunch, dinner or anything in between for that matter. Went there with all the children and grandchildren and it is so safe to let the little one just do there own thing. Their are even child minders if necessary. Oh, the menu and service are great as well, typically Italian and value... More

Papachino's remains top of the chain of restaurants in Midrand. Always great service with a smile (any good manager knows a smile can defeat the most obnoxious customer) and the food is ever tasteful. Other restaurants could learn a thing or two from these guys!

The trouble with Papchinos is that the whole world snd its dog adores this place!! We did not need to book for lunch but we did for sn early dinner. All I can say is that this vast place gets busier year on year snd is a blessing for families where children can go off and make their own pizzas!... More

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.

Papachinos was recommended to us by The Celtis Manor Guesthouse. We went back for 2 nights in a row. Varied menu, fresh ingredients, cosy atmosphere, excellent service and a management that went beyond the call of service. We couldn't get the recommended taxi back to our guesthouse: we asked the manager to call one for us and instead he summoned... More

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.

Great place for a family meal. Safe and pleasant area for children to play, and they can make their own pizzas. All 8 dishes ordered at our table looked great - the food was fresh and the portions generous. The restaurant is in a relaxed setting with adequate parking and no passing traffic, so sitting outside in a late afternoon... More

I think this is a restaurant which has good food and you can go to if you have kids. I don't have kids so it is not that great for me.
