Papachinos is a great venue for families with younger children. They have child-minders who can keep an eye on your little ones whilst you slip in a quick breakfast or lunch. The kids loved it, nice facilities and a variety of playgrounds for them to play in.
There is also a "make your own pizza" room where the kids can make their own pizza, roll their dough, do their own toppings - very exciting for them.

I found their menu to be quite substantial with a big selection of food.
Their breakfasts were great, their nacho portions were HUGE and weren't the best I've tasted, but nice enough.
Service was slightly slow but adequate.
Prices are very reasonable.

If you have kids, it's a great place for you to have a meal that you can actually sit down to :)

The open plan setup outside is great, with full view of the play area. My 2 year old son loves it, there are slides and a track to ride their scooters, with a clown that makes balloon animals on the other side. The food is also very good and reasonably priced including the entertainment for the kids.

Depending on where you are seated, time of day or weather, the bees from adjacent nursery can be an extreme nuisnance though.

Looking for somewhere to go to, just to relax and enjoy a meal out with my better half. We were very impressed with the decor, and the ambiance was quite something, with a host of families and friends chatting over a glass of wine. The staff was very friendly and accommodating with the manager timeously asking us if we were comfortable and needed anything at all. The food was absolutely divine - I ordered grilled lamp chops and my partner a massive steak, which he did say was rather delectable. After a relaxing night out, we agreed to be back soon enough, and perhaps try the branch in Fourways. Very impressed :)

Catering for young kids allowing adults to chill and enjoy the weather and good food.
Kids can bake their own pizzas as well in the kids section.

I went to this restaurant twice during my 10 day stay in Johannesburg and was not disappointed. The food was really good and value for money. The staff were friendly and efficient and they have 'minders' for children who want to play in the outdoor play area, which is a great idea. One tip - do book if you want a table over a public holiday or weekends as it is an extremely popular place.
