Good food with a playground consisting of slides, jungle gyms, tricycles, etc. Plenty veg on the menu. This place books up quickly so make sure to reserve a table (outside.)

Menu offers wide variety of tasty and healthy meals for the whole family. Loads of entertainment for the kids allowing parents to get in catch up time and enjoy the great service and scrumptious Italian /South African cuisine. Must do eatery in Midrand

This place came recommended to us by our hosts while in Jo'burg, it was their favorite place to go (just around the corner) and now I see why, its a great family friendly (kids activites) restaurant with a small deli style area, great staff and amazing pizza and pasta, it was a big meal so made for a great breakfast...

Papachinos is my new favorite restaurant. I have three children, aged 9, 3 and 1, and going out is normally not an option for our family. Papachinos has changed that. The restaurant has a huge kiddies entertainment area, is fully gated so the little ones can't wander off, and there are dedicated childminders watching the kiddies. There are two playgrounds...

The venue is beautiful. Highly geared for kids. The problem is the food is not up to par. I have been there a few times over the years and the quality of food has declined substantially whilst pricing has increased. If you've got kids and don't really care about the food, it's the ideal venue for you.

Papachino's is literally 800m from my home, food and service excellent and a 'home away from home', for business, family or just a few drinks. Thanks guys always good to me.

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
