Had dinner here tonight with my son, he loved playing in the playground and there were plenty of kids there to keep him occupied. Food was absolutely delicious, I had the Bedrock burger and nuggets and chips for the boy. Burger was beautifully cooked with nice runny egg. Our meals were delivered to the wrong table and we has to wait a bit for the drinks, but apart from that had a great time. Will definitely come here again when next in the area

We go here with each trip to Phillip Island. The food is just OK, nothing extraordinary. But the indoor kids playground is GREAT, and the staff are always super friendly. If we didn't have kids, we probably wouldn't go. But if you are on holiday with children... don't pass this one up! The surrounding gardens are AWESOME with giant snakes and ladders and even an aviary.

The idea of this Restaurant is so the parents can relax and not worry about their kids making to much noise and disturbing anyone. I watched my Grandkids run around in the play area having a ball and all the parents there looked quiet relaxed. The meals weren't to bad for the type of restaurant it is, being better than your well known fast food outlets. The service was great they even had a pool table for the adults & bigger kids to play, they also had a small bar so that you could purchase alcohol. A great place to take the kids without any fuss.

If you have small children that live to run around at dinner and play then this restaurant is for you.
Modelled from the Flinstones TV show the restaurant is ooen planned with basic meals which in every meal comes with chips.
The service is good, nice friendly staff. I get the feeling there is no proper chef in the kitchen given the quality of the meals.
I was glad i was with my Grand Children other wise i would have walked out.
This is not a place for a couple to come for a meal unless you like screaming kids running around your table.
A bit over priced for what you get.
