The atmosphere is very family orientated. The menu has something for every taste. Ingredients are fresh. We have eaten there for a few times and enjoyed it everytime. The kids can be kept busy baking their own pizzas, enough playroom outside, kids parties can be accomodated. We sat outside. Service was quick and food was great. I will recommend this... More

Food and service was fine but the area was being used by smokers. The room is enclosed by a ceiling, walls and an open sliding door. The smoke spoilt the meal.

My children love it and the varied menu has something on it for everyone. Fresh ingredients, secure parking, it's a very good choice for a family meal. There is a supervised playground and children can even make their own pizza. We go there multiple times everytime I visit South Africa (at least once a year) If only a Restuarant like... More

Pappachinos is an instutution , if you have kids under from 0 - 9 you have been there , probably in the last month. They focused on the kids area first and built the adult eatery second , and this is why it works , you wont see your kids as they make their own Pizza and play for hours.... More

Don't go if you want good food and a semi quiet restaurant. This is a child friendly restaurant that caters for them very well. All round food is average and you won't right home about it but if you want to relax as you're kids need to play and you don't have to worry then you will enjoy the peace... More

I visited this restaurant on two occasions and enjoyed the spacious layout with plenty of seating inside & outside. The children were well catered for with special seating and a delightful shady play area to keep active kiddies occupied. The varied menu offered some interesting breakfast, burger & pizza options. The chicken with pineapple & sweet chilli sauce went down... More
