Dining out with the little darlings isn’t always a success. In fact, it can be messy and stressful. Those little monsters know exactly what they want and what they don’t (we envy them), and boy do we know when they’re not happy. Say goodbye to tears and shouts and hello to happy kids. We’ve listed down the top child friendly restaurants in Belfast where you can enjoy a good meal while the little ones are happy and entertained (and quiet). The pleasure is all ours.

Cafe Parisien

No better way to entertain the little devils than with French food. From classic crepes and croque monsieur to patisserie delights and ice cream, you’ll be sure to please your child and yourself. This is an all day dining, open seven days a week (perfect for the early birds or the afternoon cravings) and an iconic Belfast institution. If your kid (or you) is a big Harry Potter fan, don’t miss out on their Harry Potter afternoon tea on the 27th of October. All witches, wizards, muggles, and half-blood princes are welcome. Great child friendly restaurant in Belfast!


Accommodating young children’s taste can be a real challenge, but not at Edo. This relaxed venue offers a dining experience where you and your dearest will enjoy the finest ingredients from around Europe. These guys serve exciting tapas, sharing plates, and starters your kids will love, followed by more robust meat or fish. Although it’s nice to accommodate your meal to your children’s taste, make sure to have your own treat by ordering one of their amazing cocktails, you deserve it!


“Unique, quaint, chic, cozy, funky” are all descriptions that let you know what you’re in for here. Located in the heart of Belfast, this trendy venue is one of the best eateries in the city. From French chic decor to Irish fusion cuisine, this child friendly restaurant in Belfast is full of surprise and will totally entertain the little ones. Check out their calendar, they organise amazing events for children like Wednesday Princess afternoon tea. As for your personal entertainment, enjoy a dinner & show evening at their Cabaret Supper Club (not recommended for kids though, you might want to arrange a babysitter for this part of the evening).


Kids love Italian food. They could eat pasta and pizza all day every day, it’s just a fact. So take them to Fratelli, an Italian restaurant & bar located in the lively Great Victorian Street in the heart of Belfast. This place has a great “little boars menu” that contains all the pastas your baby craves for, an amazing “build your own pizza” concept and yummy ice-cream and chocolate sprinkles desserts. And if your kid refuses to order something from the kids menu (because he’s a grown up now!), head along on Monday and enjoy their 2-4-1 pizza deal.
