Awesome food, service and great for kids too

The food was great, the service was great and so too were the child minders so we had a great relaxing time without having to over our shoulders every few minutes. Excellent entertainment for the kids.

We managed to get in on Father's day gone by just before the crowds got in and were pleasantly greeted and shown to our table by attentive waitors. The cappuccinos were great and served with very tasty biscuits and we were brought more as we waited for the main dishes. One of us didn't eat eggs so they gladly swopped... More

The venue at Papachinos Midrand is very good. Well decorated inside and lots of outside space with plenty to keep the kids occupied. The menu is extensive and offers some interesting if nontraditional options. The pizza's come with lots of toppings. The venue is a little out of the way but it adds to the sense of space. However, the... More

My daughters told me they heard this restaurant is so fantastic. So on a sunny Saturday afternoon we took a drive out from Centurion to Midrand. This restaurant is huge and is surrounded by lots and lots of cars. The parking attenders are "jacked up" and they have good control of the parking area. In no time we were directed... More

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

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.)

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...
